Real quick before we get into the TMI…
I am guest posting over at The CSI Project today!
I’m sharing a tasty, easy crock pot recipe!
Ask us ANYTHING!
We answered each of your questions without consulting the other person, so you will find that some of our answers are the same or similar… OR completely opposite!
That’s sisters for you!
|Kayli… Baking! Kassi’s birthday cake, actually.|
Question 2: If you could be on any reality tv show (Survivor, X Factor, Amazing Race, etc) what would it be and why?
Kassi: Well… I guess I already answered that one up above…. Design Star!
Because that would mean I was a good enough designer/interior decorator to be on Design Star!
Kayli: Cupcake wars! but if I could choose one that isn’t as competitive I would be on Sweet Home Alabama. Have you seen homeboy this season?! Whew!
Question 3: What is on your top 10 Craft Bucket List?
Kassi: GREAT question!!! OK…
1. Pallet Headboard
2. Making it onto and WINNING one of those blog craft competitions like
So You Think You’re Crafty or One Month to Win It.
3. An entire handmade Christmas (gifts).
4. Western/Cowboy themed quilt
5. A lovely and inspiring craft room
6. Frame jewelry holder
7. Fun holiday themed throw pillows for every holiday that we celebrate
8. Someday making something unique and fun enough to have my own
handmade shop on Etsy
9. Etched glass kitchen ware
10. Mod Podge something large, like a suitcase or a chair
Kayli: (These are all on my “Things I’d Love to Try” pinterest board)
Question 4: What is the favorite Christmas present you have ever received?
Kassi: As an adult my favorite Christmas present was last year when my husband bought me a Silhouette. He had no idea what it was or what it did, but he knew I wanted one, so he got online and ordered one for me.
Kayli: The first things that come to mind are my Hope Chest from my parents and my luggage set from Kassi. I just remember feeling like they were milestone gifts, like I got them because I was becoming a young lady.
Question 5: What is the best Christmas present you have ever given?
Kassi: Actually… Kayli and I have one in the works for our mom for this year… I have a feeling that might be it! Just in case she reads this… You’ll have to hear about it after!
Kayli: The best Christmas gift I’ve ever given was to my dad. It was a pastel painting of him holding me as a baby. It definitely wasn’t my best work, but it was out of love, and it meant a lot to me.
Question 6: What post are you most proud of on your blog?
Kassi: Honestly, the post I am most proud of is my college advice letter to Kayli. I really put a lot of time and thought into the things I wanted to share with her and anyone else who might be going off on their own for the first time.
Kayli: I don’t know that I’m proud of any of my own posts, but my favorite is the letter Kassi wrote me before I moved to college. I go back and read it a lot.
Question 7: What do you like to craft with the most?
i.e. felt, fabric, etc?
Kassi: Well, if you look back through my crafty posts, I guess it has to be VINYL! I love cutting me some vinyl with my Silhouette for all kinds of projects!
Like this one, or this one, or this one!
Kayli: Does flour count? Haha! But I love fabric, it’s probably my favorite.
Question 8: What have you learned from the challenges in your life?
Kassi: I haven’t really ever talked about it here before… But in the span of just over a year my husband and I lost his mom, my Granny and his Grandpa. All in different situations and different stages of life. These trials really taught me that life, no matter what stage you are in is important. It is to be lived and loved and most importantly, not taken for granted.
If you’d like, here’s our very first post where we dedicate Truly Lovely to our Granny.
Kayli: I think the greatest lesson I’ve learned from the challenges in my life is that my Heavenly Father knows me personally and by name. He knows what trials I need, He knows how I will learn, He knows how I feel and He knows how to comfort me. I’ve learned to trust Him, because quite frankly I don’t know what the heck I’m doing 99.9% of the time, but He knows what needs to happen, and if I do my best, he’ll get me there. One way or another.
Well there you have it! The answers to all the questions we received over the week!
