Inspiring Feature - Country Heart & Home

I first started reading Debbies blog Country Heart and Home years ago, I happened upon it after seeing a dresser that she had done up and I totally fell in love her blog then
Debbie is an all round kind of girl who loves to blog about her very busy family, baking, arts & crafts, her creative makes are so inspiring and her year long recipe box had me hooked. Its the only carrot cake and lemon cake recipe I can use now - delicious

Anyway here is Debbie in her own words

Tell us a little about yourself
When i first started scrapbooking I was known as mumof3boys....then mumof4boys...and now it would change again to mumof4boysand1girl -
SO im sticking from now on with plain old Debbie!!
My ever expanding brood also own 2 cats which we rescued from a centre close by - Crunchie and Twix....those were the names already given and the boys thought they were perfect so they stuck!
What does your blog mean to you
Countryheartandhome blog is my baby, i try to treat it like a visual diary.
A kind of online update which is great to look back on, not just to see what i made and when but to document days out we take etc when it comes to journalling etc - its saved a lot of blank journalling spots so far!
My blog continues to grow daily which is a suprise as i am only just getting back into it after a long break.
It still comes as a surprise when i get people emailing me asking me to do a review on a product or if i can promote something as im still of the mind frame of 'who would listen to me'! lolWhat inspires you
I am inspired by colours, scents and everything around me - im constantly looking at things and seeing how i can change them or make them suit 'me'.
Im a complete shabby chic girl at heart and love inking, making things for the home and general messing about with paints, lace and pretty things!An insight into your day
A general day in my life consists of answering to MUMMMMM a thousand times a day, trying to fit in what needs doing around the house, making time to bake (another favourite passtime of mine) and after everyone crashes to bed.....
i try to sneak another 30 mins or so making something or checking out the internet (also a favourite passtime!) lol

Where do you see yourself in 10 years
Not sure where i will be in 10 years but i hope still amongst some of the loveliest ladies i have ever met - or am yet to meet!
Thank you so much Debbie for taking the time out to feature on my blog today

Debbie also has a wonderful new scented business called Frills and Fondant selling candles, lip balms and accessories
