This week, the lovely Jessica Hill of Mad in Crafts is in the Bloglight!

Jessica has been blogging since 2009, and needless to say, she’s built herself a mini empire! Today’s bloglight is also partially in honor of her second blog (wow!), “All Cheap Crafts,” that just launched. I’ve been a fan of Jessica’s ever since I saw her genius hanging paint storage system that went viral on Hometalk and Pinterest, so it was fun learning more about her today.

Thank you for sharing your story, Jessica! Read it here.

This week, the lovely and talented Shanna Gilbert of Restoration Redoux is in the Bloglight! I remember how I amazed I was when Shanna first joined Hometalk, because she kept on posting these awesome furniture makeovers, day after day. I just couldn’t believe how many projects she had up her sleeve! Shanna redoes vintage furniture, and actually started her blog as a way to personalize the furniture she sells for customers who wanted to know the story behind the piece-how cool?! Thank you for sharing, Shanna! Read it here.
