Blogger Q+A / The Junk House

Blogger Q+A is a monthly feature where we hear from some of our favorite bloggers. The questions are easy and fun and the answers are always entertaining. Read along as we get to know the best writers, fashionistas, crafters, mommies, and inspirations the blogosphere has to offer.

This week I'm happy to introduce you to Sam at The Junk House. I started following Sam from the very beginning and am genuinely impressed at how hard she's working to turn her house into a home. She's creative, she's honest, and always has something good to share.


I’m Sam, a 25 year old financial analyst (by day) and DIY enthusiast (by night). The Junk House is my story of house to home…on a budget. I created The Junk House to chronicle my DIY projects, crafts, and general nonsense.
What is your name?  Sam (Yes, short for Samantha)
Blog address:
Where is your favorite place to relax?  I relax the moment I put on my pajamas and stretch out on the couch. My night is complete if there’s something good on HBO or recorded on the DVR. I wish I was in my pajamas, on the couch, watching Project Runway right now…
What do you do on a bad day to change it to a good day?  Play with my puppy! It’s hard to be grumpy when someone is that excited to be around you. Oh, and singing at the top of my lungs in my car (current fave: Rolling in the Deep by Adele).
What are your most loved comfort foods?  Anything sweet! Love me some cake! Oh, and potatoes…in any form. My mom says that I’ve never met a potato I didn’t like…that’s the truth!
What is your guilty pleasure CD or song?  I love, love, lurve Ke$ha! Although I’m not ashamed of my love affair, so maybe she’s not a guilty pleasure.

What characteristics do you love?  I don’t know how to describe it, but you know when you meet someone and instantly like them? They are outgoing, friendly, funny, and you feel like you’re BFFs? You just chit chat like no biggie? I love that! I’m a pretty quiet person (until I get to know someone), so for me to feel like that…that’s a special person.
Do you sing in the car?  It’s a party every time I drive. There’s singing and dancing!
Every day I’m shufflin’
Who was you first movie star crush?  Probably Tom Cruise in Top Gun
Favorite beauty product?  I love Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy perfume! It smells so good and makes me feel sexy =)
What are your favorite sounds?  I love listening to the rain. We don’t get a lot of rain in Phoenix, so it’s always special. And I love when my puppy makes his sleepy, grumpy noise…it’s so cute! I’m smiling just thinking about it.
Why did you start your blog and what do you hope your readers get from it?  I started my blog while I was closing on my house. I thought it’d be a fun way to document all the plans and changes I had in mind. It turned out to be a great way to hold myself accountable and not procrastinate on projects.
I hope my readers are inspired to get their hands dirty and try the projects for themselves!  I also hope my readers are inspired to see the potential in things - just remember: spray paint can fix anything!

Thanks Sam! Now hop on over to Sam's blog and take a look at all that she's accomplished so far. If it doesn't motivate you, I'm not sure what will!
