I asked 31 bloggers the same 35 questions for my 31Days Series.
Here are their answers:
On Facebook, my main activity revolves around blogger groups. They.Are.Awesome. Mainly just answering each others questions and such and I have met so many great, creative people through them.
Elisha from Pneumatic Addict Furniture is one of them. I knew pretty soon after she popped up in my feed that she would be one I would stalk regularly. She is constantly whipping up new tutorials, always amazing me how she will make items, concrete countertops anyone?
You guys are going to want to check her out and you won’t want to leave;)
Without further ado, I give you Elisha.
