Here's what Kathy had to say when I interviewed her recently:
I started blogging in June, 2012, to find a creative outlet beyond spelling words out in Cheerios. Being a mother is the best thing that ever happened to me, and being at home with my children is such a blessing; but I do miss the sense of accomplishment and something that is "mine" that came with a more traditional career.
2. Tell me about how you chose the title of your blog.
I chose the name "Pinner Takes All" as a take on "Winner Takes All" with a Pinterest twist, but beyond that it means anyone can use Pinterest (or any inspiration) to tap into their creativity.
3. What's your favorite topic to write about?
I have always been a bit of a writer and enjoy different topics for different reasons. I like crafts and recipes equally well, but my guest posts doing crafts with my kiddos have a special place in my heart.
4. How would you describe your style to a new reader?
My signature style in crafts is easy DIY and in my food I aim for healthy versions of comfort food. My writing style I like to think of as friendly, with a sense of humor, and not taking myself too seriously.
5. Which post are you most proud of?
Either my Fall Bottle Craft, the DIY S'mores Jars, or the Meatloaf Recipe.
6. When your family has time together, what are some special activities and/or meals you share together?
I have a baby and a toddler, so that keeps us pretty busy getting through the day, but our family loves to go to the beach or take small road trips or outings to the zoo or park. Most of what I cook is on my blog, but another favorite family dish is my husband's steak pie that is a UK specialty- a bit of the homeland for him and yumminess for me.
7. Anything else you'd like readers to know about you, or your blog?
I would just like readers to know how much I appreciate them taking the time to read my little corner of the internet about my crafting and cooking adventures (sometimes misadventures) and I am just so grateful for their comments.
I hope you'll take a moment to pop over and encourage this new blogger at Pinner Takes All! You can also find Kathy on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and (of course!) Pinterest.
