I’m honored that you clicked over here to learn a bit more about me. I am Beth, the creative talent behind Home Stories A to Z . I started this blog in January 2008 simply as a way to vent about my escapades with my two little boys, Asher and Zephan.
In January 2009, I discovered decorating, crafting, and design blogs and my world was forever transformed…and so was my blog! Decorating on a dime has always been a passion of mine, and I couldn’t resist joining the party.
Q. What sets you apart from the other trillion home blogs out there?
Well, unlike some home bloggers, I possess zero special talents! Seriously. It’s true. I’m just incredibly tenacious, resourceful, and willing to take risks. What this means for you is that if I can do it, you sooooo can too! I try to do everything with a sense of humor and hope you laugh along with me (or at me….or both ). Most of my friends describe me as beingbluntauthentic, real, and down-to-earth. My goal is to encourage you to be the same! In a nutshell, I don’t take myself too seriously. I fumble through most of what I do. And most importantly, I believe in creating beauty out of chaos and sharing the stories with you!
Q. What is your blog all about?
I am a home blogger and DIY’er. I mostly blog about projects and home improvements I make to my home. However, my blog is a bit of a variety show of home crafts, decor trend alerts, blogging tips, mantel link parties, occasional recipes, sponsored posts and giveaways. I also host a weekly link party on Tuesdays called Tutorials & Tips Tuesday and love to feature fab projects from other bloggers.
Q. Are you a real designer?
Nope. Although I sometimes wish I had a degree in design, my background is in counseling. I have my M.A. in Community and School Counseling and in my previous life worked as a family counselor and an elementary school counselor before becoming a work-at-home mom. I still try to help pay the mortgage by working as an amateur designer/decorator and addicted DIY’er.
Q. This is my first visit to A2Z. Where should I begin?
Well, hello there friend, and welcome! To see what I’m all about, I encourage you to check out my Project Gallery. Here you will find some of my most popular posts and projects organized for you by category.
Q. Okay, you seem kind of cool. How do I follow you?
There are many ways to follow along! I encourage you to “like” me on facebook and subscribe as a follower so you don’t miss out on a thing. I’m also very chatty on Twitter so be sure to say hi!
