Be WEIRD... Normal is the new boring

I have an imagination that is curlier than a crazy straw.  It’s a blessing and a curse all at once.  My head may get a little loopy sometimes when full of creative ideas, but that kind of magnificence is worth the time it takes to share on the bloggy.

Fab DIY’s.  Cool projects.  Inspiration.  Road trips.  Blogging tips.

You want to kiss me right now, don’t you?  Pucker up :)

BIG AWESOME SAUCE:  
Our treehouse was lucky enough to be featured in +Country Living !!  

It's totally doing the happy dance right now.  

Not gonna lie... I'm triple flipping across the living room floor.  

*** HAPPY DANCE ***

THE INSIDER SECRETS TO KICKASS BLOGGING  A free downloadable book available on the bloogie

Have you ever had Blogstipation set in?

The look of desperation appears on your face.  It’s the kind of look that usually only exists in times of war.  It’s like an imaginary hand reached out and grabbed you by the scruff of the neck, and slapped you on the head. Write. Create.  Walk through that fear....

Not sure where to start on the blog?
 I've made it super easy for you to decide. Are you curious? 
Maybe a home snoop?  How about some video? Podcast? Most popular blog posts?  Come talk to me. I promise you'll be amused.

Here’s a super duper in-depth list of my top blogging tools & resources in a free dowloadable book.  

Learning how to be a top drawer, fearlessly authentic, back of the bus, kickass blogger can be a cluster-you-know-what-er of mixed emotions, raw talent and hard work while simultaneously tapping your head, rubbing your belly and sticking to what you do best.

A BIG PROBLEM.  The EPIC blogging tips seem locked up water tight in the vaults of popular bloggers. I'm about to share my insider blogging secrets with you.   http://www.lynneknowlton.com/blogging

Warning: This post contains coarse language and talk of nudity :).

Introduction
Design and Lifestyle blog DESIGN THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE. www.lynneknowlton.com featuring DIY's, 'how to blog' tips, epic photo apps and an eco friendly adult sized treehouse created from an upcycled reclaimed barn.  The treehouse is now my blogging studio (when it isn't snowing) 

Writing about cancer (with spit and laughs), family life and travels and how to blog.

Social media expert within Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, Blogging and Instagram. Still learning my way through Google +. Whew. 

Come say hello on the bloggy.  People say it's a cool place to hang out. 

It's definitely cool this time of year in the Canadian countryside.

Mom of four kids, one ginormous great Pyrenees dog named Oliver, and a few mice.  We live in the country, the mice just let themselves in.

We have lived locally for 13 years and try to support local businesses. Sadly, Homestead has become very run down over the years and yet we returned over and over again in support of our local community. Last night, the owner Gary hollered at my children and called my husband a liar. My children (who are very respectful ) had gone out on the golf cart for a few moments because my son had lost his iPhone while golfing with my husband during the day. Gary mistakenly thought my son was 11 years old. Not only was the owner wrong in his age assessment of my son, he was unacceptably unkind to us by hollering at my children, my husband and myself. His red faced, big bellied attitude was embarrassing and rude. The restaurant itself has poor ventilation with a very smokey atmosphere. It is hard to sit and enjoy a meal inside with all the fryer smoke. We chose to sit outside to avoid the smoke. The cabins for rent are very rundown and the overall look/feel of the 'resort' is a one star at best. We will never be returning again.
