Today’s Sunday Spotlight is one of my favorite blogging buddies, and she also happens to be one of the brightest shining stars in the creative blogging world: Jamielyn from I Heart Naptime. This girl is SUPER sweet and SUPER talented!! She also happens to be the queen of Pinterest. For real. 4 MILLION followers. Wowzer. All hail the queen!
Would you lie to see what Jamielyn’s blog is all about? (HERE is a good page on which to start.) It’s a delightful mix of recipes, DIY, crafts, printables, and roundups of fabulous ideas. It is always colorful, always uplifting, always cheerful, and usually consists of very simple and approachable projects and ideas. I love it, and I know that you will too!
Let’s start with Jamielyn’s DIY projects. Her home is so beautiful. I love the colors that she chooses and all of the details that she includes in her rooms.
This is the BEAUTIFUL living room that Jamielyn did as part of a room makeover challenge. Don’t you love all the turquoise? That OTTOMAN!!! Yummy.
Part of her living room makeover was this gallery wall. In her post on How to Create a Gallery Wall you can learn a fun little trick that helped me design a couple of gallery walls in my dad’s house. Brilliant, yet simple.
In many of Jamielyn’s beautiful furniture redos she uses her own DIY Chalk Paint Recipe. Simple, but a big money saver.
