Guest Post… Heather @ Setting for Four

Sharing is caring!

Hi Friends!!!  As I’m settling back into life after getting back from vacation I’m SO excited that my friend Heather was so willing to guest post for me!  Heather is a guru at home décor and I love her creativity when it comes to crafts.
Welcome to Domestically Speaking Heather…
Hello Maryann and Domestically Speaking readers!  I am so excited to be a guesting here today and to share a bit about myself, my blog and my home with you!
My name is Heather and I blog at Setting for Four:

I’m an Interior Design Consultant at a gorgeous Home Interiors store and Military wife with a passion for family friendly design that won’t break the bank or sacrifice style! I am a mom of two teenagers and married to my best friend, an Infantryman, whom I am so incredibly proud of! I love to diy, create things by hand, cook healthy meals and most of all create a comfy and cozy space for our family of four.

At Setting for Four I blog about home decor, DIY’s, crafts and recipes along with the busyness of a military lifestyle and life with two teen boys (my 19 year old just joined the military too and is at officer cadet training this summer!)

So you might be wondering what’s behind the name of my blog, Setting for Four!  Grab a cup of coffee and read this post “In the Bloglight” which explains it all!  You’ll learn the real nitty gritty of how and why I started blogging…Wow! What a journey it’s been!

   As an Interior Design Consultant I love working in residential interior decorating, home furniture and decor!  It’s been my passion for a very long time and I’ve finally taken the steps to work in the field of decor and design!  I’m sharing my fun new career on my blog too!
I love to blog about decor, design and creating Design Boards…I curated a bedroom decor collection for Crane & Canopy, mixing pops of blue and green with neutral colors of taupe and grey.

     I also love to DIY and craft!!

One of my most favorite projects to date has been my Turn Kids Art Into Tea Towels made with a Sharpie and a Flour Sack towel:
This was made from my youngest son’s drawing of our family…isn’t he an amazing artist?

…and my DIY Beaded Sunburst Mirror! (can you believe I made this using Scrapbook Paper, Beads and a Ceiling Medallion?)
