More about Aimee in her own words:
I’m married to my best friend and together we have three sweeties…Baby B (baby brother) is 5, Big B (big brother) is 7, and Little B (sister) is 10. I started my blog, It’s Overflowing in 2004 as a journal about and for my family. In October 2011, having moved into a new…old home, I decided it was time to make It’s Overflowing a public domain and join the great company of others who share a similar passion for DIY Projects and Home Decor.

More about Melissa in her own words…
I’ve been married for 15 years to my favorite person in the world, a man who ages incredibly well, gets me laughing with his crazy sense of humor, whips up a mean batch of restaurant-style salsa, and makes fly fishing look like an art form. We have produced four children whom we enjoy so much that we’re in our seventh year of homeschooling. I used to be afraid of the hand-me-down sewing machine that’s nearly my age, but now it’s my favorite appliance. It’s followed by my KitchenAid mixer because I love to bake, as evidenced by my Pinterest recipe board. I also enjoy organizing, reading, shopping at thrift stores and vintage markets, and the way that running makes me feel. (Notice I didn’t say running itself.) My favorite movies are The Lord of the Rings triology, Little Dorritt, and Pride & Prejudice (Colin Firth, please. Nothing against Matthew Macfadyen, of course, but it wouldn’t be fair for him to hog both movies.) In my spare time, I sew like crazy for my handmade business and blog at A Time for Everything.
