Where We Create - Meet Sheri of Donuts, Dresses and Dirt

Here is lovely Sheri who blogs at Donuts, Dresses and Dirt about "everything she is most passionate about". I discovered Sheri's blog through Melanie at Inward Facing Girl. Well, the comment section of her blog actually. Don't you do the same? Find a blog you like, scour the list of blogs that they read and hang out in the comments section?

Love Sheri's blog and love just as much how generous she is - with her kudos and sharing of other people's posts on Facebook and twitter. She also has a series called Blove where she highlights her favourite bloggers.

And she is JUST like that in person - generous and passionate and bubbly and charming. I know, because I got to meet her on my last trip to NYC! How lucky am I??!!

Let's hear from Sheri about where she creates...

I sent 3 photos because I create everywhere!

When I’m baking and cooking I’m obviously in my kitchen – which we had built 5 years ago and where I truly LIVE in my house (pictured is my latest creation – homemade s’mores!).

My drafting table (in our family room) is where I draw up plans for clients’ gardens. I have my talented older son’s artwork all around me, which is always so inspiring!

Finally – the couch in our family room is where I typically write my blog. Feet up, blanket on my lap.


What time of day do you do your work and why?

Loaded question! With 3 kids (ages 3, 15 and 20), my own business and a house to run I have to fit the work in where and when I can. Forget about no two days being alike – no TWO HOURS are! I do the bulk of my work during Noah’s nap-time and when he goes to sleep. The early mornings are for fine-tuning (blurry, late-night eyes are the worst proofreaders!) and kitchen prep.

What's your go-to snack when you are feeling peckish?

Salty? Cashews. Sweet? Sour belts. Both? Kettle corn.

When you are procrastinating, what do you do?

I let myself read one article that I’ve bookmarked and planned to read. It’s a break in my routine and I can cross something off the “to-do” list. That, or I iron.

So go over there and look around. You'll enjoy what you find, trust me!
