Meet My New Regular Contributors!

You may have noticed a little something different this last month.  “Or so she says…” has taken on a handful of regular contributors!  Every now and then, circumstances call for the blog to evolve, and I am so excited to have this group of gals be regulars.  I hand picked several of my favorite bloggers that are not only talented writers, photographers, and super creative, but they mesh with my style…which was super important to me.

Now, don’t fret.  I’ll still have PLENTY of guest bloggers featured.  I would never leave them out, because don’t you love finding out about other fun blogs on the internet??  I do!  Plus, there are zillions or women with great ideas, from small blogs to big blogs, and they are always welcome here.  If you’re interested in being a guest blogger, check out the info here, and email your post links to my assistant, Paula at

Craft Contributor – Trish Budhu

Trish started crafting, drawing, gardening, jewelry making and sewing since she was a child. She was greatly inspired by her grandmother who taught her how to do a little bit of everything to create a happy home. She put love into everything that she did. Trish took that along with the creativity that she was blessed with and put it to good use. There was not one career title out there that could have satisfied or showcased her creative talents. This is why she turned to blogging. This was her only way to do a little bit of it all and share all of her ideas. She has been blogging for over 2 years and love every minute of it.  Visit her blog, Crafty Moods.

Join Jo-Anna here at “Or so she says…”, where she hopes to inspire a love of living life in a yummy kind of way!

Fashion Contributor – Cori Robinson

Cori is a mom to 3 littles with one new peanut on the way. When she’s not chasing them, she writes about style and little life moments over at la vie petite. Cori is tres petite, and when she grew tired of trying to find clothes that fit her just over 4’10” frame she started designing her own. Now she spends every spare minute creating pretty pieces for her indie clothing label corilynn. She loves great fabric, tailored clothing, anything literary, European, coastal or vintage. She believes that personal style should be an expression of who you are, and that every woman can feel fabulous in her own skin. Oh, and she drinks hot chocolate every morning. Even in the summer.  Visit her blog, La Vie Petite.
