Guest Blogger: This Fresh Fossil

** I LOVE Chelsea from This Fresh Fossil. Her blog is one of my all time favorites. I encourage you to book-mark it! I personally asked her to come guest blog while I'm on vacation, hence her longer post. She's a keeper! ** Before I introduce myself, let me just say how totally awesome Allison at HOH is? Whenever I need a laugh or inspiration for a cheap and fun project, I always head over here and am never disappointed! I love her great ideas and projects - like her awesome dollar store wreath (which taught me a valuable lesson: when hot glue gets hot, it melts! Imagine that, … [Read more...]

Hookin Up with HoH #55

Hey friends! I'm currently in St Louis, Missouri on our big vacay! Tomorrow we're checkin' out The Arch, then we're off to Chicago. Any recos on fun quick stuff to see or do (or eat!) in Chicago will be greatly appreciated!! RECIPES/FOOD now has a separate link. If you want to link up a recipe, make sure to scroll down to the 2nd inlinkz button instead of the first. Holy cow, I could NOT narrow down my favorites this week. There were so many excellent posts. It was painful, but I managed to narrow it down to my favorite 12 from last week. In no particular order, here are the … [Read more...]

Guest Blogger: My Forever House

Hello there HOH readers! I'm sure missing Allison while she is on vacation, but it has been great to meet so many other wonderful and talented bloggers. My name is Aubrey and I am a full time mom, substitute teacher and blogger. I started My Forever House as a way to document all of the projects that we take on, in this, our 5th (and hopefully last!) house as a married couple. Though I started the blog as a way to document changes we make to the house, it is also where I show off some of my other crafty undertakings. I was featured this past winter by Allison for my Christmas gift bags … [Read more...]

Guest Blogger: Life, Crafts, & Whatever

Ummm, yeah. Did you not expect me to jump on the opportunity to guest blog on House of Hepworths? Heck yeah I did! I'm Jen, I live near Dallas. I'm a stay at home mom to 3 girls, while hubby makes a living as a graphic designer at a large church. This is me. ------> So.... my blog. It's just a simple blog where I post crafts, thrift store finds, family stuff... and I'm sure, random nonsense at times. I've been told at times that my blog is fun, but who am I to promise that? You'd just have to check it out to see for … [Read more...]

Guest Blogger: Hi Sugarplum!

Hello, hello HoH readers!!! I'm Cassie from Hi Sugarplum! So cool to be hanging out over here today...although, I think I'd like to be on a one-month vacation with Allison! My blog is a mish-mash of topics, mostly DIY and decor projects. Some are hits, like this Faux Crown Molding I added to my Babygirl's room for a total of $28! And some a miss, like this beast of a light fixture I made out of coffee filters (and resulted in a black eye!) Sometimes I throw in an outfit inspired by decor: Or plan the occasional party: But always, I'm … [Read more...]

Guest Blogger: A Turtle’s Life for Me

Hi there! I'm Natalie from A Turtle's Life for Me and nearly crawling out of my skin with excitement to have the chance to guest post at House of Hepworth's!  It was one of the first blogs I ever read and still one of my very favorites! I live on the East Coast with my handsome (and patient!) hubby, a 7 & 9 year old that just keep coming around and sleeping here and a brand new doggy!  I'm all about making things out of throw-away junk and other freebies! I love cooking and have been known to decorate a cake or two.  I'm pretty much a jack-of-all-trades, but an … [Read more...]
