The Nest Chapter

Welcome to my blog! You may know me as Mrs. Starfish on Weddingbee or Mrs. Newport from my personal wedding blog, NewportNuptials. If not, welcome! :)

I started blogging on LiveJournal during my freshman year of college and it was such a fun release for me. Back then I didn't even know it was called blogging, I just thought it was an online journal you share with friends. After about a 6 month stint, I forgot about my online journal. It wasn't until about four years later that I rediscovered the world of blogs, well actually I discovered the world of blogs, since I didn't know that's what I was doing  back in the day.

After getting engaged, I quickly became fascinated reading along with brides' journies to the alter. I found the world of blogs to be the most helpful wedding resource out there. About a month into my own planning, I started my own. I loved sharing ideas and getting feedback.

During the wedding planning process, I also reignited my love for crafting. I grew up in a pretty creative household. My mom was always creating something in the kitchen. She also loved to sew and try new projects. My dad loved to build things, including my first tree house, my dollhouse with furniture to go with it, and tons of other miscellaneous projects. My brother was an art major in college and tried everything from painting to photography.  My sister was creative in a more social way. She loved to sing, dance, and act.

Being the youngest in this family, I was exposed to a lot of creativity. I never really had one true passion growing up, instead I dabbled in it all. I still do. I love trying new projects.

It's been almost a year since our wedding and I've realized how much I've missed being able to share my random thoughts and projects. So I decided to start a new blog. 
I'm not really sure where this blog will go as of yet, but it will have a lot to do with the next chapter in my life, which pretty much seems filled with home projects and ideas, which is why this was dubbed "The Nest Chapter". So I hope you enjoy following along!

I'm also looking for new blogs to read, so if you have your own  home decor, craft, recipe or newlywed related blog, I'd love to follow you, too!
