Hi I’m Kate Danielle the girl behind the Creative House Blog. I started this blog to share my creative mind and relate to other creatives. Creativity is all around us in the way we live, dress, cook, raise kids and in the more obvious things like crafts and diy projects. Creative House Blog touches a little bit of all those aspects, but first here is a little more background info about me. I am a wife to an amazing husband, Chris, who has supported me and all my crazy ideas for 5+ years, a mom to a beautiful, spunky baby girl and a sweet dog, and a wedding photographer.
Get your feet wet with these posts:
What 3 words describe you?
Creative, Shy, Spunky
What's your favorite part about blogging?
I love sharing my ideas and connecting with others. I started Creative House Blog when I was pregnant (now my baby is 1) and it has been a place for my to have a voice, interact with others and something that is for me. I love being a mom but we all need our own thing sometimes.
What have been some of your favorite DIY projects?
One of my favorite DIY projects was creating Ali’s Nursery, especially the quilt I made her, I had never made a quilt before but quilting is something I watched my grammy do growing up and I was happy to make something special for my daughter. I also love my family throw pillows that feature my dog and Ali’s handprint.
What's something you love about spring?
I love breaking out spring clothes! Scarfs, Maxi Dresses, Jean Jackets, Oh My!
What are three things you want to accomplish in 2015?
My Blog to exceed 10,000 monthly page views , Grow my Etsy Shop, Create a Digital Magazine
What song are you currently obsessed with?
What's your favorite book?
I am a huge Harry Potter Fan! The books are just so good, I love the movies too but when I went to the park I felt as though I stepped into my own imagination. I even keep Tales of Beedle the Bard on the nursery bookshelf and I am excited to share the book with my daughter one day.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
This is so hard to pick, I would love to travel around Europe but I love animals so I would also love to do an African Safari.
If you could live a day in the life of anyone, dead or alive, who would you choose and why?
I never have an answer to this question and I feel like I should. For the totally selfish reasons of wanting to know what it is like to be famous I might be a musician who actor for a day.
Where is your happy place?
As much as I love to be adventurous I really am happy at home with my family having down time.
Name 5 things that make you happy.
My Loved Ones, My Golden-Collie, Good Books, Popcorn and Movies, Being Creative

I don't know about you, but I love when celebrities take the time to blog. I have to admit that Claire was never my favorite person, because Adelind drives me crazy on Grimm, but after reading her blog and looking at her Instagram, I just started to adore her so much. Now I follow her on Twitter, and she literally cracks me up, and I love when she live tweets the show.
@tiffanykhyla It’s mutual, Tiffany!! Thank you!

Okay, so Ellen's never actually tweeted me or interacted with any of my tweets or anything, but she is following me, so I feel like that's the first step in us becoming BFFs.
@tiffanykhyla See you soon!

After I discovered "Geronimo" for the first time last November, I pretty much had it on repeat for about a week. I loved it so much! After tweeting about my obsession, they favorited it.
#onrepeat today: Geronimo by @wearesheppard

I really think Caroline should've won the fourth season of The Voice. I was so mad at Adam for kicking her off. Of course, I'm still a fan of hers, and I've been loving her EPs. When I tweeted about it last September, she was kind enough to favorite it.
Listening to @CarolineGlaser's new EP, Better Days, Vol. 2, on repeat today. It so beautiful! #nowplaying #betterdays #onrepeat

Xenia was another contestant on The Voice that I loved. She was on season 1, and she was incredible. I love a lot of the songs she's put out, and I'm especially in love with the song "Hiding Places." When I tweeted out about it, she retweeted me.
"Hiding Places" by @Xenia is the perfect song to fall asleep to 🎧

As soon as I read in Jodi's newsletter that there was going to be a companion novel to Between the Lines, I was so excited that I had to tweet about it, and then I was even more excited when she retweeted me!
There's going to be a sequel to Between the Lines! The #bookworm inside me is squealing with excitement! @jodipicoult http://t.co/Z0s1zeI393

I became such a fan of Rainbow after reading Eleanor & Park and Fangirl, and she showed me some love by favoriting my tweets.
Losing sleep to finish Eleanor & Park by @rainbowrowell. Worth it. #bookwormprobs
— Tiffany Khyla (@tiffanykhyla) March 17, 2014
@rainbowrowell just continues to amaze me. I loved her book, #Fangirl. Reviewing it on the blog! #bookreview http://t.co/YtVd080seR

During NaNoWriMo, I was obsessed with reading through tips from Marissa, because she started out writing with NaNoWriMo before she was published, and that just really motivated me. Plus, Marissa is just an awesome person, and she had tweeted me in the past, but these ones were extra special because during most of 2014, I was trying to plan out my novel, and she's one of the main reasons I decided to participate in NaNo in the first place.
@tiffanykhyla Aw, thanks! If you ever have any specific questions I can try to work them into a blog post. :)
— Marissa Meyer (@marissa_meyer) July 18, 2014
@tiffanykhyla Best. Compliment. EVER. <3

After reading We Were Liars, I became a huge fan of E. Lockhart. This book hooks you from the beginning, and it's this crazy mystery with a mind-blowing ending, and it's just incredible. I was so grateful that she took the time to thank me TWICE after tweeting out about how much I loved her book.
I don't know how I'm going to live a normal life after reading 'We Were Liars' by @elockhart #sobs #depressed #didntseethatcoming

Reviewing 'We Were Liars' by @elockhart. Spoiler alert: I gave it a 5/5. #WeWereLiars #bookreview http://t.co/PxiOYU7yUY

While I was nearing the end of All the Bright Places, I realized that it was almost 1 am, but I was so close to the end, that I decided to just go ahead and finish it. I tweeted out my thoughts, and Jennifer was kind enough to show me some love with a retweet.
Who needs sleep when you're at the end of a really good book? #AllTheBrightPlaces #bookwormproblems @jenniferniven 📖😨

I was pretty enthusiastic about finishing The Program (though sadly I still haven't read The Treatment), and I think this tweet that Suzanne favorited pretty much says it all.
Holy crap! 'The Program' by @suzanne_young was so incredible. I need to get my hands on 'The Treatment' ASAP! #theprogram

I adore Leila Sales, and she's tweeted me back before, but every time she interacts with me is exciting. She tweeted about the book cover for her new book, and I tweeted her back saying I loved it, because I do. It's freaking precious. You can look at it here. Then she favorited my tweet.
@LeilaSalesBooks the cover looks beautiful! I love it and can't wait to read it!
— Tiffany Khyla (@tiffanykhyla) November 19, 2014
Sharing a few books I'd like to see as movies by authors such as @marissa_meyer @LeilaSalesBooks @allycondie & more! http://t.co/UJnHqjjmoJ

When I was at Texas Teen Book Festival, I had an awesome little chat with Frank Portman while I was waiting in the book buying line, and he was peacing out. During one of the activities, I tweeted about the song he sang, which I still love, and he retweeted me!
Can't get "Cinthya with a Y" out of my head @frankportman #TTBF14
— Tiffany Khyla (@tiffanykhyla) October 18, 2014
I discovered Leila's book when I went to the Austin Teen Book Festival, but I never met her because I didn't buy the book at the festival. I later read it and loved it. She was sweet enough to favorite the tweet I published about reading her book, Nantucket Blue, and then she replied to a later tweet to thank me for reviewing it.
@tiffanykhyla Thanks for the review Tiffany!

I love when well-known people interact with me on Twitter, whether it's a celebrity, an author or even a well-known blogger or YouTuber. My dream tweet backs would be Emma Watson, Kristen Bell, Taylor Swift, Zac Efron, JK Rowling, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins and Zoe Sugg.
Have any famous or well-known people tweeted you? What famous people do you wish would tweet you back?
