Friend Of The Week – Jolena


How many of us have lived in old houses that can never get enough of your time, money and resources? If so, you’ll certainly relate to this week’s Featured Blogger – Jolena from While I Linger!

Jolena is a home-schooling Massachusetts mom who lives in an old cape-colonial that she, her husband, and her teenage daughters are constantly working on! When they were forced to deal with a collapsing kitchen two years ago, Jolena decided to document the process, which led to the birth of her blog.

When she’s not tending to her house, her husband, and her children, this daughter of the king loves collecting antiques, old junk and cast-offs she finds at yard sales.

Jolena says:

When I can take old, tired things that someone else calls junk, make them beautiful and give them a new purpose I am reminded of what God is doing with me. He is changing me into something new, preparing me for my true home.

Comments mean the world to bloggers. Won’t you brighten Jolena’s day by dropping by her blog and congratulating her for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?

Now It’s Your Turn To Share!

    Good question, I think I would miss it, thats for sure.
    Hope you have a great week!

    I have a Smartphone, but no cell service. I only use it for taking photos and running Square transactions when there’s a wifi handy! If I had a little point and shoot digital camera I wouldn’t miss it at all.

      Bummer about the lack of cell service Bernadette – but they do make great cameras!
      Hope you have a great weekend!
      Thought of you today as I started to take some photos of your “special treats”! 🙂

  3. I did not realize how often I check my phone! I never check my phone when I am in church but I look at it first thing afterwards. I recently tagged along for a round of golf and dinner afterwards. The club did not allow phones. So I had my phone put away for hours! At first I was anxious. What if something happened to my aging parents or my (grown) children? I guess someone else could tend to them. Then I missed my camera to take pictures of the incredible course views…. even a horse trotting by. By the end of the evening I was no longer anxious. But because I use it so much, I don’t think I would be relieved either. I would just miss it.

      It’s really amazing how much some of us come to rely on our phones!
      I also fall into this category.
      I don’t even like being without mine when it charges!
      It’s hard to believe that a few short years ago I never even used one!
