Please Welcome Courtney From Scraps and Scribbles.

Today I am swapping places with a fellow blogger. Please take a minute and get to know Courtney. You won't be sorry. She is a Jill of all trades. You can find me over at Scraps and Scribbles. So, without further ado I give you Courtney.
I'm so happy to be visiting with you all over here at Project Alicia!

In case you're wondering who this girl is, I'm Courtney from Scraps and Scribbles.

I'm a SAHM to one busy 2-year-old boy. I've been married to my wonderful husband for just over 5 years. We live in sunny Florida, and love it. When I'm not spending time with my son or taking care of the typical housewife things like cleaning and the laundry, I like to craft, sew, cook/bake and take pictures. I'm a big fan of DIY decor and ways to dress up my home on the cheap. I'm also the creative mind behind D Squared Creations, my Etsy shop that I run with my sister-in-law where we sell our pretty creations. It's full of fun vintage finds and pretty jewelery to dress up your outfits. I love fashion and make-up and sharing what I find. If you'd like to know more about me, you can check out the About Me page over at my blog.

As I mentioned, I dabble in home decor and I love to search for fun finds at thrift stores. Here's a message board that I fixed up to serve as our family's message center/mail spot.

I love photography. I fell in love as a child and that love grew in high school through an awesome photo class (and equally awesome teacher) and have been a shutterbug ever since. I have a little photography business that allows me to work when I want and still be able to be home with my son. I started by doing a wedding as a gift to a friend 7 years ago and it has just grown from there. I do everything from cute babies to families to engagements. This is my good friend and her beautiful family back in December-I shot some pictures for them for Christmas.

One of my goals when I started my blog was to become better at sewing. My Anthro-inspired ruffle tee was one of my very endeavors and I loved it!

Boston Cream Pie is one of my favorite desserts and this recipe makes the best one I've ever had.

One of the things I looked forward to once we bought our house was being able to have a garden.These Silverware Garden Markers are super-easy to make and are definitely going to be in my garden.

One of the things I try to do, not only with my blog but also with my every day life, is to keep things simple. I made this wreath with interchangeable embellishments so I wouldn't have a pile of wreaths lying around.

I do a weekly segment where I share tips and tricks. One of my favorite series was the one I did on make-up (one of my passions)-you can check out my video tutorial on how to do up your whole face in 10 minutes.

I also do a weekly segment called Fashion Fridays where I share fun fashion finds, from trends I love to pretty clothes. And my love for shoes : )

Thanks so much for letting me come by today and share a bit of me and my blog with your lovely readers, Alicia! I hope you all come by Scraps and Scribbles and say hi-I'd love to meet you!
