A Turtle's Life for Me: Favorite Blogs Tour

I'd like to introduce you to Natalie from a Turtle's Life for Me today.  I'm a newer-ish follower of her blog in the last few months.  I love her ideas because they seem like things I could actually try.  I'm excited to have her here for our Favorite Blogs Tour.  Enjoy...

Hi!  I'm Natalie from A Turtle's Life for Me and am so excited to be guest posting here today! I just started blogging about a year ago and am constantly amazed at how much I love this little community!  I've been having a blast at A Turtle's Life for Me getting to know so many of you and decorating my house at the same time!  I may possibly be the cheapest person you'll ever meet, so you won't find anything too extravagant over at my blog. Just lots of easy, quick, low-cost projects (decorating and recipes!), so I thought I'd share a few of my favorites from this past year!
My daughter's Dress-up Center that I made out of an old, broken dresser, is still one of my all-time favorite projects.  I personally love it because it cost me pretty much nothing, I love taking pieces that others would throw away and making them useful, and it's extremely functional!

 The Beadboard Headboard that my husband and I installed in our bedroom is another one of my personal favorites!  It was cheap, quick and brought our whole room together!  I still go back often and look at the before and afters because I just can't believe what a difference it made! It also highlights the turquoise and yellow wreath I made.

I'm also a huge fan of themed parties and one of my favorites from this past year was the BaByQ Shower I threw for my best friend for my goddaughter's impending arrival!  It was a very casual backyard BBQ and we had a ton of fun! 

I do love to post about food, as well and without a doubt, the most popular food posts I write are my freezer meal ones!  My original freezer meal post, the 2 follow-ups ( #1 and #2), the spaghetti freezer sauce and the football freezer cooking have totally taken my blog in a direction I never expected it to go!  It was just something I've been doing for years, that I casually shared one day and still get daily emails about almost a year later!

I also, have been known to decorate cakes and cupcakes in my spare time!  This one was always one of my favorites and I still enjoy looking at it!

That's just a little sneak peek at what I'm up to, but there's lots more over on A Turtle's Life for Me!!
So stop by and say hi! I love meeting new people!
Thanks, Polly, for letting me invade your little corner for the day!
