Introducing: Sarah Busch from Modern Core.

We're down to the last couple of days before Christmas! I hope you all have enjoyed the giveaways as much as I have. Thanks for showing jreevesart some love yesterday! The winner of the original painting is TIFFANY WRIGHT!!! CONGRATS! Please email me and we'll get the details squared away.

Today I want to share with you another great designer and small business owner, Sarah Busch from Modern Core! Sarah started Modern Core to help others learn how to effectively organize and design their spaces. She also has an Etsy Shop!

Les: Hey Sarah! I know you're a newlywed, tell me a little bit about you and your family.

Sarah: In May of this year I married my high school sweetheart, Trey Busch. We love being newlyweds and doing so many of the 1st's that come along with it! We are glad the planning of the wedding is over, but I will say that it was amazing being able to plan and organize such a big event in our lives. We live in Jackson in a little log home [decorated like we live in the 1960s] and our newest addition to our family is a motorcycle, which Trey traded his 4-wheeler for on Craigslist! He is a big fan of that Craigslist and loves finding new things for us. We are excited to see what the future holds!

 Les: I know you have a personal organizing business, can you tell me a little bit about that and what it entails?

Sarah: I started Modern Core because I love organizing and have always wanted my own business. My love for organizing makes me want to help everyone else be as organized as me. I offer organization services as well as interior design. I will help organize just about anything, anywhere. More details on pricing and everything else can be found on my website. Check it out!

Les: You're crafty too! What's your favorite thing about DIY projects and where does your inspiration come from for what you create?

Sarah: I love crafting for sure! Most of my Christmas gifts this year were handmade by me. I love doing anything that is DIY because I know that I did it and that makes me feel good. It's just something about doing things yourself. I get my inspiration from things that are mass produced [things that I look at and say "I could do that"], Trey is a big help with ideas too...and lets not forget Pinterest. I am currently thinking of ideas for things to make for my Etsy Shop... suggestions are welcome!

Les: The purpose of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways is to share love with local artists and businesses. Tell me, where are some of your favorite local places to shop?

Sarah: Shopping local is definitely amazing in my opinion! I actually frequent a couple shops that you featured earlier in your 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway - Bloom and High Street Station. It just happens that my products are at both of these stores. I love little boutiques and these are 2 of the best in the area. I also love all the antique store downtown, I go into them often! I love to just browse for hours and get lost in all the amazing things they have. I could name all of the local shops that I love but that would take all I will just stop now!


Sarah and I went to high school together, but I definitely have gotten to know her better over the last few days and through her work at Modern Core. Sarah is kind enough to be offering one of her original pieces from her etsy shop to Life Told By Leslie Readers!

This Chartreuse Wooden Tree doubles as unique and modern Christmas decor and a necklace tree!

To win this handmade tree, head over and "LIKE" MODERN CORE ON FACEBOOK and tell Sarah that Life Told By Leslie sent you! I'll announce the winner tomorrow, good luck! Let's show Sarah's local business some love.
