Welcome! I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and the crazy people that make my life great. I’m a huge country music fan and will go to just about any country concert I can get tickets to. I love to be creative, take pictures, watch baseball, read books and drink coffee/wine/vodka (not all mixed together).
I started blogging in June 2011 and have enjoyed every minute of it. The friends I’ve made, some I’ve been lucky enough to meet in real life and some I haven’t, are probably what I love most about this community. I started my blog for me and I have worked hard to keep it that way. I don’t sugar coat my life. I share the good, the bad and the random. You’ll find posts about the books I’m reading, concerts I’m attending, my adventures with my crazy but amazing friends and family.
In November 2015 I opened my Etsy shop. The Kelly Lorene Shop is full of custom printable party invitations & supplies, holiday cards, birth announcements, save-the-dates, wedding invitations and more. I had been designing baby shower, bridal shower, and birthday party invitations for my friends for years and finally someone said, “why don’t you open an Etsy shop and sell these?” I thought about it and realized that was a pretty good question. A few weeks later The Kelly Lorene Shop was born and it’s been a fun ride ever since.
