Welcome back to Blitsy's Feature Friday! This week we chatted with Kimber of The Pinning Mama. This Air Force wife and mother of three (all under five--eek!) certainly has her hands full, but always finds time to share her favorite DIYs and recipes on her popular blog. Read below to learn about some of her favorite projects and where she finds inspiration.
Tell us about The Pinning Mama and how you got started.
I started with a friend a little over 2 years ago. We both loved Pinterest and creating anything and everything from the craft room to the kitchen. We weren't brave enough to do it by ourselves but decided we had what it takes to do it together. Since then she went on to pursue other things but I found that I really loved blogging and continued learning more about the craft and sharing all of my crafts and haven't looked back.
How did you get started in crafting?
As far back as I can remember my mom was always creating things. She is wonderful at sewing and loves to bake and I loved doing it all with her. I can remember being bored in the summer and just collecting junk from around the house and using a glue gun paint and glitter to create "sculptures" and what not. I always enjoyed anything creative and was always encouraged to do it by my family.
What is your favorite project that you have done so far and why?
Favorite is such a hard word! But I will say that one I did more recently that I really love was refinishing my daughter's dresser. My husband is a neutrals kind of guy so we don't have to many crazy colors around the house but when we were moving my daughter to a big girl room I knew it was my chance. I bought a huge dresser that needed a lot of love and made it over with beautiful aqua chalky finish paint. I was nervous since it was, well, huge, but it turned out beautifully and I still love seeing it in her room every day. You can see the before and after pics on my Instagram.
