Hey everyone, I wanted to introduce you to this month’s sponsor swappers. All of these blogs I personally read and enjoy, and you should take a moment to view each one. I know you’ll love them as much as I do!
So here we go, starting with the four bloggettes (woman bloggers) who have most recently joined in on the fun.
Erika from Our Cozy Cubbyhole
“Welcome to Our Cozy Cubbyhole. It’s small but it’s ours! Follow our nesting adventures full of DIY projects, crafts, life, and love in our apartment in Los Angeles. My name is Erika and I happily share a great one-bedroom apartment with my boyfriend, Walker, and my dog, Bo. I love living simply and enjoying the little things. This is where I get my style- simple, cozy, personal, a bit reminiscent, and happy. Our home is a peaceful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city. And you are always welcome! :)” – Blog | Etsy |Pinterest | Twitter
Rachel from College Hill Renovation
“Hello there! My name is Rachel. I’ve had a passion for decorating and home design since I can remember and I started blogging to document the restoration and renovation of my 1932 Tudor home. I am tackling new house projects all the time, and sharing my experiences on the blog along the way. Please stop by for details on my progress and occasionally some ‘renovation reality’ comic relief.” – Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest
Rachel from The Get Neat Blog
“Facing more and more demands with less and less free time, people are struggling to manage their days and control the chaos building up in their lives. Less control leads to anxiety and that anxiety can manifest itself in many ways. Get Neat is a DC-VA-MD based professional organization company designed to help people create a balanced life by finding an organizational system that is simple and functional. Check me out at www.get-neat.com or at my blog get-neat.com/blog.”
Ashton from Dorian and Maine
“I am a twenty something student who loves design, food, fashion, and art. Don’t hesitate to say hi! Dorian & Maine is currently the center of my networking mayhem – you can find me on Tumblr, Pinterest (of course!), and Twitter. I love reading and writing blogs, and getting to know the people behind them. I don’t really have one set style in any areas of my life. Rather, I love so many and it really depends on my mood for the day. I am currently busy with a half load of school work, organizing my apartment, and looking for a job to hold me over till summer, when I can go full time. I hope you enjoy my blog, and feel free to point me toward yours!” – Blog
Meagan from Local at Last
“Welcome to Local at Last! My name’s Meagan. I’m a twenty-something newlywed married to the love of my life, Josh, a soldier in the US Army. We live together in our 550 square foot box in the D.C. Metro area and I’m a nanny to the most adorable twin boys, Aidan and Adam. My blog is named ‘Local at Last’ because my husband and I were in a long-distance relationship for 2 years (2 months of which was while we were married) until this past May when we closed the long-distance gap for good. This humble blog is all about our life as newlyweds, my adventures in the kitchen, creating a home of our own, and much more!” – Blog | Twitter
Kate from Discover.Create.Live.
Hi guys, I’m Kate over at Discover. Create. Live. I’m happily married to my high school sweetheart Wes, and we have a beautiful little girl Hayden. We love to blog about our family, gluten free cooking, and lots of different projects we do to help beautify our home. In addition I like to post different printable “graphics” each week as well as the things that inspire me. I love finding new people to interact with, so feel free to check out our blog, and leave a comment so we can check out yours too! – Blog | Twitter
Shannon from Bungalow960
“Hello! I’m Shannon and I blog over at Bungalow960. I started Bungalow960 as a place to document the happenings in renovations and improvements in the 1924 American Bungalow that I share with my boyfriend and our two cats, but it has morphed into a place where I share snippets of my life. I hope you’ll stop by for a visit!

Ashley from First Home Dreams
“Hi there! I’m Ashley, the rambling author of First Home Dreams, a blog dedicated to the restoration, renovation, and decoration of our brick farmhouse built in 1899. We’re located in Minesing, Ontario, Canada. We’re trying to do as much as we can ourselves, learning as we go. I hope you’ll pop on over!” – Blog
Lori from Bleak2Unique
“Hi, I’m Lori from over at Bleak 2 Unique. My southern family loves to repurpose, recreate, and recycle to create a home uniquely ours. I love sharing ideas and getting to know new blog friends, so stop by anytime.” – Blog | Twitter
Ashley from Attempts at Domestication
“Hi! I’m a newlywed housewife from Richmond, VA. My husband and I met as kids and dated all through college before getting married in April 2011. We love traveling, watching movies, hanging out with our friends, cooking and Star Wars. My blog, Attempts At Domestication, started as a way to keep my college friends who are scattered all over up to date on my life, but I’ve really gotten into the whole DIY blog thing. It keeps me motivated to try new things and to actually make the things I pin on Pinterest. I do posts about my attempts at DIY, crafts, throw in a lot of random stuff about my life and share recipes from time to time too. My husband and I are in the process of buying our first home (we close on Feb. 15!) so the blog will definitely shift focus to mainly home decor and DIY after the big move.” – Blog | Twitter
Maria from All Things Luxurious
“Hi, everyone! I’m Maria from All Things Luxurious — a blog where I explore the wonderful world of DIY, thrifty finds, and sophisticated interior styling for the modern decorator. I am new to the blog world and would love some more company in my cozy corner of the Internet. Pull up a chair, settle in with a hot mug of coffee, and stick around for a while! You can follow me on Twitter at @MariaMorley, check in with my Facebook page here: All-Things-Luxurious Facebook, and of course, follow my blog at AllThingsLuxurious.blogspot.com! Hope to see you soon!”
Louise from Laid Off Mom
“Hi there! I’m Louise… I’m an Apparel Designer and mother of 2 beautiful girls who was just recently laid off from my company back in July 2011. When I got the axe, I had two options… One, cry my eyes out, crawl under a rock & find another boss who may/may not lay me off… or Two, wipe my eyes and start a brand new life on my own terms! I chose the latter of course, and now I’m “Redesigning Life, Love and Motherhood.” I don’t know where this blog will take me, but hopefully you’ll come and join me for this amazing journey! I’m also on twitter: @Laid_Off_Mom and you can LIKE our Facebook fan page here.” - Blog
Melanie from Mailbox Journey
“Hey, I’m Melanie and I’ve been blogging over at Mailbox Journey since Mid-August. I currently live in an apartment until my boyfriend of four years and I save up enough cash to buy a fixer-upper home and start our lives together. Then the real journey begins! In the meantime, I’ve been attempting to make our apartment feel like home, and getting my hands dirty in a bunch of crafty projects. Feel free to stop by and say hi!” – Blog | Facebook | Subscribe
