Here we go! Meet Jessica…
Hello friends! It’s Jessica from Decor Adventures. To help Sondra celebrate her blog’s first birthday, I get to visit with you and share some of the DIY fun I have over at my own blog. My husband and I live in a 114 year old Colonial home in the city and we have lots of fun decorating, making things and creating a welcoming space for friends and family. OK, I have fun doing that, hubs may not be as excited as I am sometimes 🙂
