Meet the Sponsors

   Personally, I hope to see a dragon. I'm sure I'm crazy, but if I saw a dragon it would be one of the happiest days of my life. If they exist, what else does?! Even if it was eating people and setting the landscape on fire I think I'd still smile.

Hi! I’m Erika, and I have a serious addiction to crochet. I work full time doing office work, and when I get home I unwind by crocheting. It’s so relaxing to me and it sort of bugs me if I don’t make one thing a day! I love to work with a lot of color, which is funny because I wear black every day. I keep saying I’m going to learn to knit, machine sew, and embroider – and one of these days, I’ll actually get around to it. I also like to read (Richard Brautigan and JD Salinger are among my favorites) and listen to music (currently obsessed with the Talking Heads, Wanda Jackson, and Timber Timbre).

Q. I daydream a lot and tend to get lost in my thoughts, so when I look up at the sky, I’m sort of just glad to see it’s still there!

my name is carlia and i'm a 30-something SAHM/photographer/graphic designer/DIYer/aspiring writer/jill-of-all-trades and i blog over at nest building 101. i started my blog a few years ago as a way to journal and vent my frustrations while battling infertility, but over time it seemed to evolve to include more of my interests, thoughts, life events (including the arrival of our son, mack), and a little bit of everything else in between. i love to do DIY posts, offer photography tips, share free printables, and give my readers a sample of who i am and what my crazy life is like. i hope you'll stop by and show some love! :)

Q. when i look up at the sky during the day, i hope to see clouds. don't get me wrong, i love a nice sunny day as much as the next person, but as a photographer, cloudy days are like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. the lighting for photo shoots is always best on sunny days, because it's so soft and forgiving. sure, you can wait till sunset to get a well-lit picture, but when time is not on your side and you have to do a midday shoot, cloudy days are perfect!
