Friend Of The Week – KariAnne


This week, I’m delighted to introduce you to KariAnne – the blogger behind the stunning blog, Thistlewood Farms!

KariAnne says that Thistlewood Farms is more than a farmhouse – more than a home – more than a blog.

Thistlewood Farms is the story of her family’s dreams.

When you visit Thistlewood Farms, you’ll find gorgeous photographs of KariAnne’s home, along with the projects and recipes she’s created along the way, but more importantly, you’ll find stories of her family and the life they’ve created.


KariAnne spotlights her unique style as she takes us on her 2015 Christmas Home Tour. Woven between the amazing photos of her lovely farmhouse are the stories of Jingle, her family’s Elf On The Shelf – the recent Elf Drama that occurred between the farmhouse walls – and the reminder that no matter how old we are, we can never outgrow Christmas!

Be sure to visit KariAnne this week at ThistleWoodFarms to see all she has to offer, and to congratulate her on being our Friend Of The Week at Create With Joy!

Now It’s Your Turn To Share!

Did you enjoy meeting KariAnne and visiting her blog? Would you like the opportunity to be highlighted in an upcoming Friend Of The Week or In The Spotlight feature?

We’d love to get to know you better! Be sure to leave a meaningful comment – link to us – and spread the love by sharing our Friendship Friday party with all of your friends!

Remember – building community and developing friendships is what Friendship Friday is all about!
