What inspired you to start a blog?
I was inspired by a few blogs I read and also wanted a creative outlet to express myself. My crafts, furniture painting and DIY has grown out of the desire to write and share my experiences.

Our dog Poppy was sprayed by a skunk last March. It was so horrible, the smell and the whole ordeal, horrible. We did our sunroom over due to this incident. We’ve loved every minute out there: http://www.findingsilverpennies.com/2014/07/sunroom-reveal.html
How many kids?
How old are they?
John is 8 and Conor is 5.
Why did you join Boston Parent Bloggers?
I joined Boston Parent Bloggers to meet some local bloggers and make connections. I really love the world of blogging and how generous and helpful most bloggers are.
Any favorite tips, tools, or plugins?
I LOVE Instagram and Pinterest. I started on blogger and am now on WordPress which I love. PicMonkey is great for free editing and I’ve just started using Lightroom over the summer which has made a huge difference.
