Guest Judge: Jennifer Holmes

We have a fun surprise for you, today.  It’s time to let you in on the secret of who our guest judge is.  Here to judge the Lamp Makeover Challenge, please welcome Jennifer Holmes of Dear Lillie.

Dear Lillie began as  an online boutique that Jennifer created with help from her mother and sisters.  Jennifer started the Dear Lillie Blog in conjunction with her boutique.  Here’s a description about what you’ll find on Jennifer’s blog, given by Jennifer herself:

“This blog covers a wide array of things from new Dear Lillie products, giveaways, home decorating and bits and pieces from our rather boring day to day life.”

What Jennifer doesn’t tell you in that brief description is that her gorgeous photographs are the illustrations for her supposed “boring day to day life”–and they are pure eye candy!

Jennifer balances running a successful boutique business with her roles as wife of a college basketball coach and mother of two darling daughters, (one of whom is the “Lillie” in Dear Lillie).

The other–missing in the above family portrait–is the brand-new Lola, the latest addition to the Holmes family.

We love seeing photos of Jennifer’s home on the pages of Dear Lillie.  Jennifer has amazing taste, so of course baby Lola’s nursery is perfectly lovely.

Here’s the family room, all ready for Christmas festivities.

We’re thrilled that Jennifer shares her creative talents regularly with her readers by providing excellent tutorials.  Here are some of our favorites:

Silhouette Pillow Tutorial

Burlap Vase Tutorial

Moss Letter Tutorial

Ottoman Slipcover Tutorial

Jennifer is no stranger to lamp makeovers.  Here are three lamps that she transformed for her own home….and provided a tutorial, so you can do the same!

An introduction to Jennifer and Dear Lillie wouldn’t be complete without telling you about the marvelous parties that Jennifer throws.  Here are two we adore:

Twelve Dancing Princesses Party

Audrey Hepburn Themed Party

We’re thrilled that Jennifer would come spend the week with us at The CSI Project.  We know that she’ll enjoy viewing all of your lamp makeovers.  Please stop by Dear Lillie and make Jennifer feel welcome!
