cupcakeMAG Featured Blogger -- Kate of Centsational Girl

Centsational Girl really doesn't need an introduction. She is a DIY goddess and as for her site....just, perfection. Thanks to one of our FABulous Featured Bloggers Melissa over at The Inspired Room we were introduced to Kate a few months back and have been somewhat obsessed with her blog since! We are thrilled to share our sit down with Kate and introduce you to Centsational Girl.

{1} Tell us about yourself, the one & only Centsational Girl & your site.

My name's Kate and I began my DIY & lifestyle blog Centsational Girl in early 2009 as a fun way to share creative ideas. I'm a lover of great design and all things home improvement, both indoors and out, so I write about what's on my mind in those categories. Food, blogging, and motherhood also find their way into the mix from time to time. I'm a self proclaimed incurable DIYer, so you'll find me doing all sorts of things from installing grasscloth wallpaper to building a laundry room drying rack to teaching myself how to sew double welt cord.

{2} Do you have a favorite project you have shared so far?

That's like chosing a favorite child, can't do it! I've had my hands in a lot of things, hop on over to browse my entire project gallery.

{3} When you started Centsational Girl, did you ever think it would have grown to what it has today?

Nope, but that's the incredible power of the internet. I'm amazed how a simple hobby blog has grown into a business, and also a community. My favorite part about this whole escapade is interacting with readers, getting their feedback, and also sharing all of our adventures in DIY projects and home decorating.

{4} How exciting was it for you being on The Nate Berkus Show?

The first appearance was thrilling! I was just happy to meet Nate, he's so welcoming and has impeccable taste in design. My second appearance was totally surreal, what an honor to be chosen to redesign a great room for a wonderful family! Still pinching myself.

{5} What is up next for Centsational Girl?

Keeping busy with more of the same, and a few more opportunities to work with magazines, you'll see those features when they release over the course of the year. I'm outlining a book, but that will take at least a year to write.

So head over to Centsational Girl now where we promise, you will browse for hours and immediately become inspired by Kate!

Keep up with Centsational Girl on Twitter & Facebook too!
