Each week we will introduce you to one of our hostesses and give you a chance to get to know everyone better! We will share a bit about our blogs, our passions, and exciting recent posts and projects we have been working on.

Hi everyone!

I'm Valerie, and I blog at Occasionally Crafty, where I love to make simple, beautiful projects anyone can do!  You'll find Craft and DIY Tutorials, Printables, simple Recipes, thoughts on Parenting, and my favorite, Seasonal and Holiday Decor.

I'm a wife, mother to three school-aged kids, avid reader, occasional crafter, and lover of all things music.  I graduated from BYU, taught high school band, then left to stay home with my kids.  Blogging gave me a much-need creative outlet when my kids were small.  Now, when I'm not blogging, I'm teaching piano lessons, shuffling my kids off to school and activities, volunteering at my church, and reading anything I can get my hands on.

Some of my favorite projects are my recent Kid's Bathroom Makeover





Cherry Chip Sugar Cookies



I would love to have you follow along on my creative journey at Occasionally Crafty, or via social media below:

 10 DIY Gift Ideas

Check out all of my features from last week's -10 DIY Gift Ideas!! Each hostess is selecting her own features, so be sure to check all of our blogs and see if you were one of our favorites!
We share our favorite link ups on The Handmade Hangout Pinterest board and on the From Gardners 2 Bergers Facebook page, too!

The Handmade Hangout will start every Thursday at 6 pm EST. It will run until midnight on Sunday, so you have all weekend to link up your favorite crafts, projects, recipes, and stories.

We have just a few easy rules:


1. Become a follower where you linked up. Or better yet, follow all of us and that would be awesome too!
