Hello! My name is Emma and I am a 23-year old nurse-by-night and creative-by-day. I love to thrift, decorate, craft and create. From my wardrobe to my living room, I am always using my creative energy to express myself. My apartment is one of my favorite projects.
This past month I was invited to be a guest blogger for Goodwill. As a guest blogger, I was given one week to purchase a number of items from Goodwill that worked together in an outfit or decorative ensemble.
I have to admit, I was a little intimidated by the challenge.
For those of you who shop at Goodwill, you know it takes multiple trips of buying one or two items at a time to come up with a finished look. You have to check out different Goodwill stores in different areas just to find the “perfect” piece. It’s a hunt, and thrilling when you find exactly what you were looking for.
With a $25 gift card in hand, I created a “table for two.” An intimate setting for a romantic dinner. I was able to purchase a tablecloth, dishware, a hanging flower vase, placemat, candlesticks, and a cake dome. It was such a fun project. Thank you for the opportunity, Goodwill!

This week I have been asked to be a Guest Blogger for goodwill! I was given a $25 gift card to spend at any goodwill stores in the Milwaukee area throughout the next week; the challenge being I must pick out a number of items that all go together (an outfit or decorative ensemble for example)...then write a blurb about each item purchased. I am piloting this new idea, we will see how it turns out!
