Enjoy Kathy at Creative Home Expressions.

This is aa exciting post for me today because it is the first time in a long time that I have had a Blogazine Guest on here. I am also linking up with Donna at Brynwood Needleworks today for her Memory Lane Monday's.

I know some of you are thinking now Maggie how does having a Blogazine Guest fall under Donna's Memory Lane Monday. Well here is how I feel I can get by with it. Due to the length of time it has been since my last Blogazine Guest post it is now a happy memory of a time in my life that I looked forward to having guest on this site. Does that make sense to you?

Actually I thought I could get by with this too because Donna is the one that named my post Blogazine Guest.. Cleaver aren't I.

Anyhoo last year I was trying to figure out how to get you better aquainted with each other so I thought of having guest on here from other blogs to come tell their story so we all could get to know them better. What fun I had doing this and then it seems after my accident I just kind of let this part of my blog slide like I did my Temptation Mondays. But my sweet friend Kathy over at Creative Home Expressions agreed to help me start this back up again.

You see Kathy is one of those friends out here in our world of blogging that knows how Maggie so needs some fun in her life right now so she kindly sent this to me.

So enjoy Kathy's story like I did and if you have not already been by her creative site you are missing out on lots of clever and unique projects. Besides that your missing out on what really matters a new friend.

Then go by  Donna's and see who else linked up to her Memory Lane Mondays and read their stories.  I did and I enjoyed it very much.

Now I have run out of words so my newest Blogazine Guest Kathy takes over ,,,,,,,isn't she beautiful. 

Hi Maggie ~

Without getting long-winded.  I've been married for 26 years this year and we were both 21 when we got married,  first house at 22, first child at 23 and second child at 26.  As you and many others have read, we are native New Yorkers moving to Ohio and my daughter, her husband and my granddaughter are moving with us.  It is an opportunity not just for the hubster and I, but also for my daughter and her family to get a home and an affordable way of life.  We are hoping my son will join us once he finishes his schooling for physical therapist.

I graduated high school at 17 and went right to work.  At 19 I started interior design school but dropped out.  I then went on to receive my paralegal certificate, an Associates Degree in Applied Science {for criminal justice} and coming full circle back to interior decorating completing a course when I turned 40 and swore I would have no regrets in life.  Up until then, my only regret had been dropping out of interior design school.  

I love interior decorating and have done it for several years part-time in addition to a job as an office manager in a law firm.  I figured part-time was better than nothing!  Now that we are moving to Ohio, I am hoping to be able to take interior decorating appointments at my leisure.  Other than that, I will enjoy spending time with my granddaughter and family and also enjoy discovering Ohio.

Trying to make the world prettier one project at a time!

Thanks, Maggie!  I hope this was okay.


Not only was this OKay Kathy I thought it was great. Your pictures are just lovely too. Thank you for doing this for us.

Now I will be checking my email box at to see who is going to volunteer to be next. Please don't make Ms. Pearl come looking for you. Just do it! Get it over with and you won't have to worry about ok when is she coming after me to do this. Sometimes fear is our worst enemy.

Life is too short not to tell your story on Just Between Me and You!

Love to all
