Featured Blogger Friday(1/8)-J. Leigh Designz

How can it be Friday again!? Seriously, it seems like my time is just FLYING by these days-But the good thing is since it's Friday, we get to see another Featured Blogger!

So, please play nice with my friend Jennifer of J. Leigh Designz :)

You never know what your going to find on her blog which is what I love about it-And not only that, Jennifer is such a great person; You can just feel the positive vibes when you enter her site.

Enjoy!

Q. What’s your name and blog? Wh
at other information would you like to share?

My Name is Jenne (like Jen) I go by Jennifer in the written world as it always gets me Jeanne or Jenny, neither of which I respond too LOL! My blog is called J. Leigh Designz. I live in Massachusetts. I married my high school love. We started dating when I was 13. We have 2 boys. Johnny just turned 9 and Gavin is 3. I want one more, but sadly it hasn't been easy. After having 2 unplanned pregnancies I thought PLANNING a baby would be a cinch. A year later and in fertility treatments we are still a no go.


Q. Why did you choose that name for your blog?

I chose J. Leigh Designz because of my Etsy Store that has been around. http://www.etsy.com/shop/jleighdesignz
I originally had J. Leigh Creations but changed it to J. Leigh Designz as my initials are JLD and I liked it more. If you go back to my original blog posts
you'll see they are all paper products as this blog was supposed to showcase my scrapbooking. The blog grew and my scrapbooking now sits in a dusty room that hardily ever gets any attention LOL!


Q. Why did you start blogging?

To get more traffic and attention to my Etsy Store. I didn't like how boring I was and played around to try and interest people. Somehow last spring I dipped into reviews and I've been doing it since!

Q. What kind of stuff do you cover with your blog? Is there a specific genre you write about or is the sky the limit?

I don't have any certain genre. I am more a mommy blogger though. I love participating in weekly meme's like Aloha Friday & Wordless Wednesday. I always have linky's so if you'd like to link up stop on by :)

Q. What is one must read post that you have written {Include Link}?

I don't think I can list just one

Hmm...
To best know me I can give you three:

My best recipe I'm known for - Mac 'n' Cheese

My lovely addiction to themed children's rooms. See Gavin's Room here:

My most personal post I've ever written-
The day my house burnt down:

Q. Name one thing you love about your blogging job.

I {love} the people I have met as a result from it. I have met so many people and I have been able to have many experience I never would have had if not for J. Leigh Designz. I got to cook in the Betty Crocker Kitchens (http://www.jleighdesignz.com/2009/09/table-talk-day-two-betty-crocker.html)! I never would have thought I'd get to do that! I love not only the relationships I've made with my readers, but with other bloggers and companies.I love working with Dee (http://www.twoofakindworkingonafullhouse.com/) as we talk everyday. We talk about so much more then blogging. I love my sponsors. Recently many of my sponsors reached out to a family that was devastated and broken from fire. It warmed my heart to be able to do something like that.


Q. Name one thing you’re not quite fond of about your blogging job.

3 am. I see it often. I work as a Birthday Party Coordinator and After School Coordinator by day for Mad Science. So I often find its the late hours I get to blog my posts for the next day.


Q. What’s one random fact about you?

I have 2 different colored eyes. Born that way. My son would tell you its that I can touch my nose with my tongue haha!


Q. Inspiration comes in many forms for different people. What inspires you?

Coffee. Seriously. At 3am Its a need.

Q. Where else can we find you(Personal Website, Etsy Shop, Twitter, Facebook, Etc.)?

Of course you can find me here at my blog :)
