Friend Of The Week – Tanya


Are you a Mom who enjoys connecting with other mothers online? Are you a woman of faith who enjoys reading stories of encouragement?

If so, then you will enjoy meeting Tanya – the delightful blogger behind Kentucky Sketches!

Tanya is a Christ follower first and foremost who is also the wife to an incredible man and the mom to four crazy kids who finds herself doing something she told herself she would never do – homeschool her children!

Kentucky Sketches is the perfect place for her to muse about life, motherhood and homeschooling! One of my favorite articles on her blog is 10 Things I Wish I Could Thank My Mom For – check it out!

When Tanya isn’t busy tending to her family or writing about her adventures, she loves to read and rummage through long-forgotten treasures at antique stores and flea markets. She is fascinated by all things American Revolution and loves to read classic English writers!

Comments mean the world to bloggers. Won’t you drop by, explore Tanya’s blog and leave Tanya a congratulatory note for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?

    Nice to meet Tanya your friend of the week.
    My favorite thing to do and frequently throughout the day for a break for the keyboard is to go outside and work in my garden.

    Thanks for hosting this week!
    Hope you have a wonderful week!

    Hi! What a wonderful, friendly site you have.
    My favorite thing to do is to make things to blog about. My day job is to design things to use for crafting so my play time is spent crafting with the design things that I make. Nice full circle kind of life. My other interests are; thrifting, learning new things {most recently, how to use my digital SLR camera correctly} and reading {mostly non-fiction}. Any time left over is spent freelancing or designing things. Life is never boring.
    Thank you for hosting this wonderful site and letting me share a little bit about myself.

      It’s always a pleasure to visit your site Lynda to see all of the lovely things you’re creating and writing about.
      Thanks for taking the time to share a little more about yourself and the story behind your creations.
      I’m delighted to discover someone who also enjoys reading non-fiction among us! 🙂

    Hello, I’m Charles Wolf – a creative guy all around. I am a professional visual artist, photographer, pianist, composer, writer, blogger… My blog, Impulsive Artistry, is dedicated to inspiring others to be more creative in their lives. Today I shared a brief essay about Perseverance with photos from visiting the hill where the Wright Brothers conquered the air, and a lovely photo set of the Elizabethan Gardens from my recent trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina! Thank you for hosting!

      Welcome to Friendship Friday Charles – delighted to meet you!
      Perseverance is SO important to all of our success!
      Thank you for joining us – have an amazing weekend! 🙂

  6. When I’m not blogging, I’m sewing 🙂 I own a home based sewing business so between writing and sewing, I stay very busy!

    Thanks so much for hosting!!

  10. What’s my favorite thing to do when I’m not blogging?

    I love counseling, spending time with my family, scrapbooking (although there hasn’t been time for a while!). But I especially love reading and studying God’s Word.

    Thanks for hosting each week. Hope you have a restful week-end.

  11. Mary Denman says:

    Thanks so much for hosting Ramona! I may have to do a photo shoot with my babies soon and post them!

    Have a great weekend!

    Thank you for another lovely Friendship Friday! And it is Nice to meet you, Tanya!
    I like to take a walk in the nature or by the nearby lake after work ~ with my camera, where the details in the trees or in the ground catch my eye … A lovely way to relax and be present in the moment, not thinking about the day at work, nor about the day tomorrow.
    I also like to cook and bake ~ our two teenager sons do like to taste new things (especially cakes!), so time in the kitchen is something I cherish as well.
    I enjoy greatly visits at the library ~ all the books and the peaceful atmosphere ~ I like to read, I prefer a good, old fashioned book in my hands, but Kindle is a fine alternative as well.
    Wishing you a peaceful joyful weekend,
