I am still trying to remember the first time I met Marie. It feels like I’ve known her almost as long as I’ve been blogging. I do have a fond memory of a Saturday-morning craft day with kids in tow to help decorate the Christmas tree at The Christmas Box House. She and Jyl had put together a really fun event complete with craft sticks, glue, glitter and even some yummy cupcakes.

Marie is the queen of kid-friendly crafts. She is so über talented in this area, my little brain can’t even fathom it. She’s involved in lots of great blogger-related events like Social Luxe Lounge and Eat. Blog. Run. plus a few more I’m sure I missed. Her site, Make and Takes, has become a household name and it’s not hard to see why.

After the story you’ll find a few interesting facts about Marie. Enjoy!

If you were stranded on a desert island, preferably in the Caribbean, which famous person would you want with you and why? Martha Stewart, so together we could craft a way to get home!

Happy Monday!

    I think Marie and my husband would both take Martha Stewart. Unfortunately for completely different reasons… He has the hots for Martha.

    Emily – Thanks so much for the fun feature! It turned out great. Can you tell I have Halloween on the brain with all the candy and bat words?! I haven’t done a Mad Libs in years! I guess I need to pick up a few, my son who’s 7 will thought this was so funny! Thanks again!
