As you know here at cupcakeMAG we LOVE to show off our favorite sites & bloggers. {see past blog love here} Well, this week begins Featured Blogger Week where we will show off one of our favorite bloggers everyday this week!

We start the week off with Jenny of Evolution of Style!  Jenny is one of the most down-to-earth people and if you haven't started following Evolution of Style we hope you add it to your list now.

{1} Tell us a little about youself and Evolution of Style?

I'm a married working mother of three, with a borderline obsession with everything house and decorating related. I want my HGTV. Now that we're moved into our new place, and getting settled, Evolution of Style has been a great outlet for me to write and share the process of making this new house our own.

{We love this Paneled Headboard Tutorial}
{2} What made you decide to enter the blogging world?

When I discovered buried treasure of decorating blogland, I was overwhelmed and amazed by all of the wonderful ideas and talent out there. Given that I love writing and home design, starting a blog seemed like a great way to marry those hobbies while joining in and sharing my own journey.
{3} What blogs do you make sure to read daily?

Centsational Girl is one of the first blogs that I started reading and literally inspired me into action as a result. She has amazing ideas, and in a weekend I think I painted a couple of pieces of furniture and made an upholstered headboard! I also enjoy Miss Mustard Seed as she has amazing vision and talent with the furniture refinishing she does, and shares her skills with her readers, which I love. Just a Girl and Thrifty Decor Chick are also funny and talented bloggers that inject wonderful humor into their DIY projects.

{4} What is your favorite piece of decor in your home?

I think my favorite piece of decor would have to be my dining room buffet. It was one of those pieces that I loved for a long time before we purchased it, and I still love how timeless it is, ten years later. It feels like an heirloom piece of furniture, and I can't imagine not having it in my home.

{5} How would you describe your personal style?

Now that we're in a new home and trying to make it our own, I think my personal style is ... evolving. Moving to a new house gives you the opportunity to reinvent yourself, so we're doing just that. The house had a lot of warm, darker colors and tones when we bought it, and we're in the process of trying to lighten it up. I think the best way to describe my style would be fresh and functional - but it's a work in progress to get my house to reflect that!
{6} What is up next for you and Evolution of Style?

The project list seems to be never-ending with a new home, but I'm looking forward to freshening up my kitchen as one of my next big projects. No matter what, I love sharing the ups and downs with my readers, and if I inspire someone along the way, that is the icing on the cake.

Tomorrow stay tuned for our chat with Kate of Centsational Girl!
