I am a follower and I like remodel and recipes.

Ashley December 8, 2009 at 12:38 PM  

My husband & I are in the middle of renovating our first house (although I've heard the renovating never ends! :)) and so I really enjoy your remodeling posts & also the crafty ideas you post about!

Matthew December 8, 2009 at 1:00 PM  

Alright J&C, I like your blog, but being of the male variety, I most enjoy the remodeling and TOOL posts. I want to see sweat flowing from J's brow as he uses all your cool tools to make stuff!

Destinee December 8, 2009 at 1:13 PM  

Yay! Congrats on a sponsor. And we really need a clock.
I love your cooking posts and I'm always amazed by the potential you find in your remodeling projects.
And I love updates on baby Etta. What a sweetie!
Oh, and I'm already following!

randivon December 8, 2009 at 1:19 PM  

I am glad that you are doing this give away because I have wanted to leave a comment about how much I am enjoying your blog but have been too lazy to do so. I really am enjoying reading and check each day to see if there is anything new. Thanks for all the work you put into this! My favorite are the remodel posts... mostly because that is what my life is wrapped around.

Marsha December 8, 2009 at 1:33 PM  

I love giveaways. I pretty much like all kinds of posts, just depends on my mood. Cooking, remodeling, crafts. It is all good. I love your new layout.

Heidi December 8, 2009 at 2:05 PM  

I have to say that I love it all, although I tend to drool while I read about the remodeling projects.

kmetzsch007 December 8, 2009 at 2:06 PM  

You know I love Etta most of all but all your blogs are fun for me to check out and I rarely miss a day of checking up on you. I wouldn't mind a cool free clock either. That basketball clock would be super fun in Mark and Isaac's room. Anyway, keep up all the hard work.

The Askeroth Family December 8, 2009 at 2:12 PM  

I am a follower! I came across your blog a few weeks ago and immediately added it to my list because I love it! I love the remodeling posts the best. I would love to win a clock!

Heather@ My Frugal Family December 8, 2009 at 2:20 PM  

My mom always told me being a follower is bad, but I am one! I follow your blog, and love it!

My favorite posts are crafts, but I love seeing how people remodel their homes, especially the DIY projects. It gives me hope that someday, my home will be a masterpiece!


Cecilia December 8, 2009 at 2:24 PM  

I am a follower!! My favorite blog posts are probably craft and remodel ones. I love getting ideas and inspirations for around the house.


rebecca @ older and wisor December 8, 2009 at 2:45 PM  

Saw your link on Before & After....guess what my favorite kinds of posts are? ;)

I've got a ton o' clocks but could always use another one!

Angel December 8, 2009 at 3:21 PM  

I am a follower (that sounds funny) and I love before and after pics of remodels. Especially when they tell you what paint colors were used.

The Wife of a Fisherman December 8, 2009 at 3:56 PM  

ooh how exciting! i love love love those clocks! i really enjoy your remodeling posts...before and afters are my favorite!

Denise December 8, 2009 at 4:16 PM  

I enjoy most your major home remodelings, i.e. adding columns, changing paint colors, adding modeling around thing, revamping anything and everything! I also enjoy how stinkin' talented you are at turning everyday things into pillows, purses, bedding, etc. And the bed that you turned into a couch.....100% creative and amazing in my eyes!! Love it it woman, you're amazing!

A Tale of Two Stevens December 8, 2009 at 4:18 PM  

I love giveaways! Jeff keeps telling me we need another clock to put somewhere... :-)

I love to read about your remodel projects and crafts. I also like stealing your recipes! Although, the pictures of the little one are an added bonus every now and again!!

P.S. The peanut butter and chocolate pie was a BIG hit at Thanksgiving. I have already been told I have to do more at Christmas...two for each house instead of one! ;-)

andrea wardle December 8, 2009 at 5:05 PM  

Oooooo! I don't have a clock, but I could sure use one! I love all your posts. You are genuine and when I read your words, can you believe that I can actually hear your voice in my head? Crazy, I know... voices in my head... anyway...

I love to read about your little projects going on. Paper crafting, sewing, remodeling. I aspire to become crafty, and your blog is an inspiration. We are doing all our tree decorations this year out of paper, all because of you!!

*and I love that little Etta babe*

Melissa Davis December 8, 2009 at 5:09 PM  

Hey Cassity! I think your blog is so fun...it's on my bloglines and when when ever you update, I always read! I love your little craft projects. It makes me tired thinking off all the fun things you do ;)

Laura Corle December 8, 2009 at 5:38 PM  

I love remodeling posts. My husband and I just bought our first house and it's a major fixer upper. We're loving the ideas and are so excited about our upcoming project(s). =)

Melodie December 8, 2009 at 5:38 PM  

OK, those clocks are too cool. I just signed up...I can't wait to peruse your previous posts. I can't get enough of 'before and after' posts.

Annie December 8, 2009 at 5:47 PM  

I was totally tempted by the sports clocks to become a follower :) I love seeing how you transform old to new, but I am particularly inspired by your quick, "easy" projects - reading your blog always makes me want to pick up a can of pant and change something in a room!

Beautifully Inspired December 8, 2009 at 6:22 PM  

Oh la la! What a fun giveaway! I have been a follower! Love your blog. My husband and I are remodeling so I love looking at remodeling posts.. and crafts! Your Christmas decorations have been so fun!




Brian December 8, 2009 at 6:35 PM  

Fun idea - I think it's great that you have enough people reading your blog to get sponsors!
I'm enjoying your remodel posts, especially the ones on the house in Utah. It's nice to see someone else's house torn up & fixed, and know that there's hope for mine. :)

Lew December 8, 2009 at 7:08 PM  

I love the remodeling blogs! You are amazing with what you can do!! Pick me :-)

Wow how official that you're even having a give away!!! I'd like the give away where you come to my house for the weekend and give me tips on how to finish off the projects we've done. Can I pay you in freezer meals? He He He. I have LOVED all the posts. Etta is such a doll, I LOVED the carrot soup I made the other day, oh and the mint brownies too, the 4 preschoolers I taught today had a great time making the ball ornaments, and I'm needing to read up on your spray painting post since I'm thinking of painting some simple bookshelves that way instead of with a roller or brush. I can't pick just one! Oh, and I have a wall that is SCREAMING for a big clock with a beautiful curved entryway table in front of it. Oh I'm also excited to see the remodel of your master bedroom in the Logan house because I remember that I LOVE LOVE LOVED the red walls with the beautiful molding. Hmmmm, maybe I should have just sent you an email. :)

Ralph December 8, 2009 at 11:50 PM  

I love the remodeling I love watching Etta growing up. And I love the food recipes. And the great minds that take the time in doing this blog.

I love everything you blog about but I am biased since you are one of my favorite people.

I really love the blogs about Etta because I know what a precious gift she is to you and your family. i just eat them up every time. I will admit I have shed quite a few tears over some of the blogs.

Other than that, I love love love the crafting stuff. I never seem to have enough time to do any of them but I love reading about them. One day, I will have the discipline to do them.

NewBini December 11, 2009 at 2:31 PM  

With little or no time (I don't know where it hides) I enjoy the easy to do crafts you post. Realistically, I have never had time to do any of them, but I pass on the ideas therefore enriching the lives of others ; )

On the other hand, remodeling really never does end, and I do enjoy watching the progress that is made & the completed projects on your blog - especially since we tiled our whole house about 3 years ago and our baseboards in the bathroom still need grouted.

Eileen December 11, 2009 at 3:41 PM  

I just befriended you on Google Friend but wonder if you do susbcription feeds by email? I was looking for an easier link.
I am a HUGE into remodeling and do lots of projects when my hubby is on business trips. He is always SURPRISED!!! so, I will be interested in seeing those types of blogs. I just found your site and am so excited.
THe clock...well, i have been tryign to find a replacement clock for the one my hubby got me 2 years ago. It sat for a year under our buffet and worked FINE...until he put it up! When people come to our house they think it is ALWAYS 2 o clock...becasue the CLOCK says so. it is maddening! so me putting up a huge clock would be so fun, useful, and hed get a kick out of it. THIS time I will do it myself though!!!!
