This week … Ariean from One Krieger Chick has put together our feature.  She’s chosen to highlight Karen from A House Full of Sunshine, and I’m so glad she did!  What a fun blog!  It was so fun getting to know a little bit about her, her fabulous projects, and her beautiful home!

So … without further introductions, I’ll let Ariean take it away …

I’m Ariean from One Krieger Chick and I am so excited to have the opportunity today to highlight the talented Karen Schravemade from A House Full of Sunshine.  I was fortunate enough to come across A House Full of Sunshine a few months back when Karen linked up a project to my link party.  I headed over to her blog and was drawn in by the beauty of her home and her gorgeous photos….I’ve been following along ever since.  She’s truly inspiring!

“Hi! My name is Karen, and I’m the girl behind the home-making blog, A house full of sunshine. I live in Australia and I’m a busy mum to three active little people – Jaxon (5), Aran (4), and Allegra (almost 2). My days are full to the brim with life and noise and chaos… and also beauty. I’m a big believer in seeing the beauty in the everyday and living life with an overflow of creativity.  Before having kids, I was a teacher of Creative Arts, and I’ve also worked part-time as an interior decorator for several years.
I’m passionate about making our home an environment we all love to be in – because when you have little kids, you’re there a lot! On my blog you’ll find home decorating projects, DIY, kids activities, recipes, and organisation ideas. My hope is that it will be a place of inspiration for other mums like me who want to live their most beautiful and abundant life. I hope you enjoy browsing these projects to get a taste for what you’ll find on my blog. I’d love to see you over at my place – the door is always open for friends! If you like what you see here, you can subscribe* to receive my posts by email. Thanks so much to my generous hosts for having me here today – it’s an honour!”
