Each week, I'm going to highlight my favorite bloggers with an interview and a link to their blog so that you can check them out!
This week my Blog Spotlight is A Simply Enchanted Life! Read our question and answer with Kristin at A Simply Enchanted Life below.
Jami: What made you decide on the name A Simply Enchanted Life?
Kristin: I thought long and hard about this name. I wanted something that fit
my personality and love for whimsical things and that also credited my
lovely family. I feel simply enchanted by my life as a mom!
Jami: What is the focus of your blog?
Kristin: Mostly reviews but I am a very random person at times so you may see a recipe or something about my shop from time to time.
Jami: What do you like to do in your spare time?
Kristin: Read and play computer games.
Jami: Your latest store stock that I see includes soaps and perfumes. What "flavors" do you sell? What is YOUR favorite flavor?
Kristin: I sell a variety of scents and flavors. I prefer essential oils to
fragrance oils but I do indulge from time to time and offer something
yummy, like 'Pink Sugar' which would have to be my favorite flavor! It
reminds me of cotton candy which I have always loved!
Jami: Why did you decide to make soap?

psoriasis. Store bought soaps irritated their skin and often I found
that even "handmade" wasn't natural and would cause an outbreak. I
wanted to know for sure what was used on their skin to avoid the
Jami: You've been dabbling with polymer clay. What's your favorite piece that you've created?
Jami: You're a lover of books. Name 3 books that you've read recently that you'd recommend.
Kristin: 1. The Hobbit, I read the works of J.R.R. Tolkien yearly and The Hobbit would have to be my favorite.
2. The Redemption of Sarah Cain by Beverly Lewis
3. The Bible. (still in progress) I'm almost done with the Old
Testament this year and it seems that for the first year I'm really
grasping some of the harder to read books of the OT and really enjoying
them. Most recently I've just finished up the story of Hosea and Gomer.
Such a powerful message and a symbol that God loved me while I
undeserving and had done nothing to earn His love.
Jami: What's your favorite book of all time?
Kristin: Fictional books I am going to have to go with The Hobbit/Lord of the
Rings trilogy (yes I'm cheating and saying four books instead of one)
Jami: Favorite author?
Kristin: J.R.R Tolkien
Jami: What's coming up in the near future for A Simply Enchanted Life?
Kristin: I have a lot of new plans in the work for A Simply Enchanted Life! I
have a special surprise coming at the end of the year that I can't yet
reveal and in the next couple of months I'm planning some One of a Kind
polymer pieces that I'm very excited about. With crafting ADD you
never really know what to expect from me!
Jami: Anything else you want to add?
Kristin: Thank you for interviewing me and for the interesting questions that I
really had to think about! And I hope you all have fun reading some of
the suggestions I gave and have a simply enchanted time doing so.
