Creative Spotlight: Don't Disturb this Groove

Happy Tuesday! Today, I am so excited to feature one  of the most creative and nicest people that I have ever had the pleasure of  meeting. Her spirit, decorating style, and overall personality makes her the perfect person to re-introduce the Creative Spotlight. Some of you may be familiar with her blog, while some of you are just getting introduced to it..but either way, you are going to or already love her!

Enough blabber and on to the Spotlight!  I am talking about Brandi with Don't Disturb This Groove. 
Brandi loves to create pretty things and decorate her home on a budget, and take it from me...she is highly successful in both.

While deciding which questions would be fun to ask, I decided that I wanted to show bloggers and other creative folks in an everyday light, because through it all, we are humans. Brandi rocked her answers, just as she does her blog posts.

Let's learn a little about Brandi:

How would you describe your blog?
My blog is a place to share my creative interests.

Tell us a 3 interesting facts about you?
1. When I cook I often pretend that I'm Ina Garten and I'm hosting my own show.
2. I'm easily distracted by beautiful flowers.
3. Laughing at myself comes very easily to me.

How long have you been blogging, and why did you start?
I wrote my first post in September, 2010. I started blogging in hopes of showcasing my creativity and inspiring others to do the same.

Meeting new people. I’m a very social person.

Social media, visiting other blogs, joining link parties and engaging with other bloggers.

I am happy that Brandi does not only have a blog that I love, but that she is truly my friend. I actually met her by lucking upon her blog and emailing her and asking about setting up some time to have lunch. We have been buddies every since.Goes to show you that you never know who you are meant to meet in life.

Make sure that you pop over to her blog and subscribe. Oh, and make sure you have several hours to spare because you are going to fall in love with her projects!

Thanks for stopping by! Until next time.
