A profile of Katie Jones, blogger at "Best of Life Seen All Week"
This week we’re featuring blogger Katie Jones, who blogs at the “Best of Life Seen All Week
” site, and — as you can see from the picture — has recently tied the knot!
Can you tell us a little bit about your blog and when you started it?
Well, I started blogging in 2006. It was my attempt at keeping a journal at first. For years I would start journals and diaries and would give them up after a week or so. But then I started adding in other aspects of my life like quilting, craft projects, remodeling, scrapbooking, project life, and my journaling started to take a new shape ... it became part of my story and it's not really just my story but my family's story.
What is one of your favorite projects you've ever made?
Oh gosh, I have a million favorite projects: The "She" book I made about my mom, my button shoes, my kitchen remodel, Kathleen's quilt, the garage studio, my wedding, etc.
Where do you find inspiration for your creative projects?
Lately I do a lot of Pinteresting, but other blogs are also good sources of inspiration. I like typography and I love flipping thru books and magazines, although I find that I usually just look at those once.
Which of your craft projects took the longest to finish?
Craft projects — hmmmm, I have several quilts still not finished several years later, my kitchen remodel took 4 months (that was killer). Most things I like to finish within a week if not the day I start it.
Describe your personal style in 3 words.
Practical, imperfect and colorful. I'd probably also say not ordinary.
When I'm not crafting, I can be found...
...building relationships and traveling.
If you were to be cast on a reality TV show, which one would you choose and why?
I don't really watch TV but probably Layover with Anthony Bourdain or maybe Food Network Star — I don't really make gourmet food but I don't wish to partake in bug eating living in the wilderness. :)
