  1. Have just discovered your blog & will definitely check out your book. I am a woman in my early fifties that finds your modesty concepts very refreshing in someone your age. So many of the younger generation have thrown it all away. I also love to modify & alter clothes to suit my style, budget, and modest approach. Will be checking back often, keep up the great work!

    1. Thanks so much for your kind message! It's always great to hear that someone appreciates my point of view and I love sharing my DIY process on the blog!

  2. Kristina, I was wondering: how do you manage to read at last four books a week, being a mother as well? Are there mainly short novels or do you read 'heavy' books and are a speed reader? I would appreciate some tips since I am passionate about reading as well. Thanks.

  3. Amazing Post....
