Today is one of my sweetest friends in blogland!!  Leanne from 
BECAUSE (I THINK) I CAN!!!  She does some amazing things!!!

Hi Randee, thank you so much for having me here today! Hi everyone!! My name is Leanne and my blog is Because (I think) I Can. I found Randee's blog some time ago, and we became quick blogging friends! I am currently living "the dream". My dream anyways!! After a career in my early 20's as a flight attendant, and then owning my own home-based spa in my late 20's for 5 1/2 years, my hubby and I made the obvious decision that it was now time for me to do exactly what I wanted to do. Be a stay-at-home mom to our 3 beautiful children. However, I still need a little daily escape into my creative side, and that's where blogging comes in! I began my blog; last September, and I also have a Facebook page . I'd love for you to come on over for a visit! Because (I think) I Can is all about my trials, errors, and successes in diy projects, refurnishing and repurposing, parenting and life... and is appropriately named Because (I think) I Can, because I don't have a clue what I'm doing during any of it!! Here's a few examples of what I do: My very first refurnishing project was turning some Craigslist finds from these:
 "Hutch andDeskBefore..." 
To this:  

...the journey of it all starts here;. Because refinishing furniture is a bit inconvenient during the winter months (see my post on What Was I Thinking?! to get an idea on how inconvenient!) I have found new obsessions in creating wall art...  And refinishing and repurposing frames like this, BEFOREafter! 

and this, my new chalkboard frame, ""after!"" read about those here; and here; And, like I said, occasionally I might tell a story or two about my very cute kids! :

  Cute, right? ;) I also have a new series named "Fame On Fridays" where I showcase one of my readers each week. If you are interested in being featured, check out this link here;. You can follow my blog; by email, RSS feed, pinterest;, Linky Followers, or Facebook;, all found on the sidebar of my blog! Thanks for reading my post over here and thanks again to Randee for having me! xo, Leanne
