Bloggers I Admire: Donna at Distressed Donna Down Home!

Oh it's my favorite day of the week....when I get to share with you a blogger I admire!  This week I'm introducing you to Donna from Distressed Donna Down Home. I love this picture of her and I love that I have a face to put to all of the sweet, funny and often supportive emails and comments I get from her!

 If you don't already know her, you're going to enjoy this.  On her blogger profile, she says her occupation is a "rust goddess"!!  Now how can you not love that!  She does create some awesome stuff and I asked her to share her top 3 favorites and then I'm going to show you a few of her projects that I love!
 In this post, Donna teaches us how going one step too far, could actually turn out to be a good thing!

Now you all know that I can't stencil to save my life, so this sweet table makeover really hit home with me!  I might even be encouraged to give it another go!

I love this  post about Donna's vow to be "junk-sober" for as long as she could stand it!!  Her awesome sense of humor really shines in this one!

And now for a few of my own favorite projects that Donna has done:

Mixed Media
I think doing mixed media takes a real special eye for getting it balanced and just right!  I have yet to accomplish this, but Donna has a real knack for it!

Time Flies - Life's Short - Take Notes
This was the project that first caught my eye and led me to Donna's blog!  I have yet to do a chalkboard piece, but this one was inspiring!  I love the clock faces on the sides!

Donna makes the most beautiful tags!  I l-o-v-e this Ferris wheel one especially!

So now you've met the fabulous Donna who is so talented and sweet!  Go check out some of her other projects and give her a little comment love and support!  She does so many wonderful things with stuff I would never think to trampoline springs..... who knew?  You're going to have to go check that one out on your own!

Thanks Donna, for letting me feature you here today on my blog!  Keep up the good work!  You know you always inspire me and your comments and e-mails keep me going!  You're a treasure!
