A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Ask Away....

Ask Away....

Someone pointed out that I was really close to 500 followers. Thank you all for following! It's so fun to hear from people, to answer your questions and to visit YOUR blogs if you have one.

I figure that since there are now 500 of you that follow and 751 subscribers, although, I don't really know what that means and I don't know the difference between the two and after I said the numbers someone will no doubt unfollow and unsubscribe! Anyway, it's time to do a little question and answer session I am going to call, "ASK AWAY."

I know you are out there....don't be shy...ask me anything...I will try and be honest and not exaggerate in the least. But lets keep it clean, my Dad reads this...you do, don't you Dad?

Please come out from behind the safety of your computer screen and ask me something. It can be about furniture, house stuff, cleaning, shopping, spending loads of money, saving money, running, dieting, getting along with my hubby, where I shop, whatever.....If no one asks me anything, I may cry. No, seriously, real tears. Even if you don't want to know something, just ask, so I feel good about myself.

And, no one better "unfollow" until this little session is over!

Post your questions in the comment section and I'll respond in a post on Monday. I'll give you until Sunday night to ask a question.

I was just wondering what your kids do while you are crafting/refabbing. I have only one three year old and I can't find time to do anything.

How did you get started selling your renovated furniture items? How did you know what to price the items? Do you have any advice for someone who might be thinking of doing the same? Sorry that's more than one question... :).

I'll ask a couple of questions...just to make you feel good, of course (wink, wink)

1. I'm a newer follower, so I may be out of the loop on this one...so you have three boys, are you done or do you want more??? The reason I ask this is because after having one boy (14 months) I absolutely LOVE boys and I say at this point that I want three or four kiddos, leaning towards four...but of course there's a long way to go to get to that point, ha!

2. Could you please deliver/ship your beautiful items to South Carolina??? :)

Love your blog!

I love your blog. It always makes me laugh. I love the "realness". I'm a mom of three and drive an old "mommyvan"... So what kind of new van did you get and do you like it?

I'm new to the blog and love it as well as White Butterfly. Just want to say Kirsten is the best, so helpful with advice on items I'm working on. Thanks again.

Hi Kirsty,
I'm new to the blogger world and L.O.V.E. reading your blog. You're hilarious, your furniture is awesome and your kids are flippin' adorable.

You've inspired me to refinish a chair that I picked up at Goodwill for $5.

My question is this... Where is a good place to find some fun, inexpensive fabric?

And any tips for a first time furniture refinisher?

I think I've asked this question before..how do you get the old furniture smell/or rather old lady furniture smell out of dresser drawers?

If I paint the inside of drawers won't the stuff inside of it stick to the paint?

Where are you originally from?

If someone dropped by your house unexpectedly what would they see?

Which of your sisters is your favorite?

How can you stand living so far away from her?

Hey, I just kinda stumbled onto your blog by accident but I really enjoy it. I've been doing a daily blog myself for the past few months and my wife sometimes gives me grief about spending too much time blogging. Not that it's really bad grief... more like Charlie Brown good grief. Does your husband ever give you this type of grief over your blogging? How long does it take to make a typical post on average?

This "BFF" you reference on occasion....is she real? If so, what it is about her that you just love/hate about her?
