Let’s be honest. We all do it. She’s out there. Who? Oh, you know. She’s that lady/super chick who can whip up a spectacular gourmet meal at the speed of light, repair a running toilet while NOT showing her butt crack, re-cover a chair and make it look FABULOUS while painting the bathroom. She’s your girl crush. Meet my new girl crush…
Karen over at The Art of Doing Stuff is the new female McGyver. Just discovered her blog this past week and so far I’ve watched her turn a few twigs and a bowl into a bird bath, show us what to do with leftover wine (not that I ever actually HAVE leftover wine), and demonstrate how to do a complete backyard makeover which, I might add, caused several double takes because the result was, quite frankly, unreal.
While perusing her blog, don’t miss “If You Shop Anywhere Else, You’re a Big Stupid Idiot Who Wears Floods”. Oh! You really should check out Karen’s weekly menu section. Seriously? This lady, unintentionally and with complete style and humor, makes the rest of us look like, well…
Yes, I’m in awe.
Hop over and visit Karen but not before answering my question and saying, “Why thank you, Lori, for showing us this uber fabulous blog!”. So, who is your girl crush? She may be a blogger or an artist. Maybe she’s an actress or politician – wait, no, not a politician. Oh, come on. Don’t be shy. Who’s your girl crush? (be sure to provide a link so others can visit)

until next time…


  • oh cool- i’ll head over to check that out in a sec…
    my girl crush has to be Jillian of The Noisy Plume! I am in love with her photography, her skillz, her sense of humor… I always leave the blog feeling entertained in some way!!

  • This is fun! I’ll be heading over to find your links. I probably should have added some kind of link thing. Hmm…

  • Hey! It’s me! Karen! Your girl crush! Now I’ve been thinking long and hard about this. And I cannot come up with a single girl crush at the moment. For a long time it would have been Drew Barrymore ’cause she’s so darn cute but that doesn’t seem to suffice for here. Mmm … I just don’t know. I’m going to have to get back to you on this one. ARghhh!

  • Lori, she is amazing! I just stopped by to read her article, she is super funny too. I can see why she is your girl crush.

    I am not sure I have just one girl crush. Whether it be her creative side, emotional support and victory over a cancer battle, a super woman, a super mom, or just always smiling. So I don’t think you need to have just one but it sounds like your girl might have all of it. I’ll have to keep reading.

  • This blog sounds right up my alley. I can’t wait to check it out.

    My girl crush is my friend, Mandy from 2 Sweet Things. She also has an Etsy shop. She is a wonderful devoted Christian, a super mom and makes some of the cutest clothes for my little girl that I’ve ever seen. And I can’t figure out for the life of me how she fits it all in. I’m in awe of her. Tell her Courtney sent you!


  • Thanks, Courtney for providing a link. I’ve had a heck of a time trying to find the blogs others referred to. (just edited my post asking for links) Thanks!

  • My girl crush is Deb from smitten kitchen. Amazing photography, and perfect recipes everytime.

    ps I never have left over wine either
