This Blogger's Beginning and a Repurposed Lamp

6:00:00 AM

Homeroad has a new look... (well it is almost finished)
so I thought I'd take a look back to where it all began...

A Beginning Blogger and a Repurposed Lamp Series

get ready... this is one of my first projects...

Back in 2011 my daughter and I found this very large 4 foot +
lamp on the side of the road. It took both of us 
to get it into the back of the car...

All I could think about at the time was 
"look at all those awesome parts" I wonder what I could
turn this ugly lamp into... and I proceeded to take it apart...

There began Homeroad... 

Almost 5 years and 970 posts later, I've learned a few things...

Like how to take pictures for one... clarity, lighting, 
using larger pictures... it was all a learning curve.

My ideas had potential and from there 
has grown into a business with an Etsy shop and
a physical shop within an Artisan Market 

I love using social media
and you can follow me on my sidebar.

You may even notice a new look to the 
Homeroad blog which is a clean and 
simple layout that lets my projects shine.

It's not quite finished, as you can see it is a little
quiet on the advertising front, but don't worry, they'll be back.

Never when the name Homeroad popped into my 
head did I envision where it would lead me.

I've had many exciting experiences on this journey

and a segment on ABC's The Chew a while back.

Not to mention another fabulous opportunity 
that will public soon!

While I am no where near finished doing what I love...
it is great to see how far I've come and
the great friends I've made on this journey.

This found lamp had many pieces... click below to see the 5  fun projects I created and sold at my first local craft fair.

Here are links to 5 repurposed lamp projects... 

It is great for me to look back and then look ahead!
