Several weeks ago we put out a Call for Contributors to join the 2015 Creative Team at Ideas for the Home by Kenarry™. We were honored by the tremendous response we received from creative bloggers, who have incredible recipes, crafts, DIY projects, home decor and more they want to share with you! After looking through all the applications, we chose 8 amazing bloggers and cannot wait to introduce them to you. Each of them will be sharing their great ideas for the home monthly through the end of next January.
Introducing the 2015 Creative Team
I am absolutely giddy about the bloggers who’ve been selected for this year’s Creative Team. To introduce the team and help you get as excited as I am, I’m sharing one idea from each of the Creative Team members today. Along with their bios and photos, you’ll also find links to follow them across their social media and see the other inspiring ideas they share. I hope you enjoy getting to know them! If you like any of their ideas, please click through and pin from their blogs to save for later.
Ashlyn is a familiar face here at Ideas for the Home by Kenarry™, as we’ve been trading Ideas for the Kitchen since last Fall. Ashlyn is the recipe developer, writer, and photographer at Belle of the Kitchen. She’s the mama of two precious babies, an army wife, and southern girl at heart. She and her family are currently stationed in Hawaii, so when she’s not making a mess of the kitchen, she and her little ones are outside soaking up the sunshine. She loves to share a balance of healthy recipes, family friendly meals, and plenty of treats to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Lori is a freelance graphic designer living in the Boston area with her husband, their three kids and a yellow lab puppy. She started Greco Design Company in 2014 when she realized that her love for design was extending beyond the corporate advertising world and into all areas of her life. She shows us some unique but simple DIY projects, gives some great ideas for home design, provides her outlook on current fashion trends, and loves to do beauty and product reviews. She incorporates her graphic design background through her free printables, paintings, signs, art prints, invitations and stationery on her blog and in her Etsy shop. Lori believes in the importance of surrounding ourselves with good, purposeful design that can help streamline our lives and still be affordable. Her tutorials are easy to follow as she shows how you can make anything you set your mind to!
