About KariAnne Wood
KariAnne writes the decorating and lifestyle blog Thistlewood Farms from the back porch of her vintage farmhouse in the rolling hills of Kentucky. She followed God’s call for her heart and jumped with her family from the busy Dallas metroplex to the middle of the country, where she lives with her husband and four children. If you turn down the winding country road to KariAnne’s farmhouse, you might find her painting mismatched chairs, listening to the music of the crickets in the pasture, singing Scripture, or walking hand in hand with her knight-in-shining-armor husband as the sun sets over the river. She loves sweet tea with lime, thunderstorms, good books, milk glass, and yard sales, and she is an imperfect DIYer saved by grace. Thistlewood Farms is full of stories of family and faith, and features hundreds of home decor projects KariAnne creates every week for readers. The blog was awarded the 2012 Country Living Blue Ribbon Blogger Award for decorating, was named one of the top ten decorating blogs by Better Homes and Gardens, and was voted one of the best DIY blogs of 2015. KariAnne has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens’ Christmas Ideas, Country Living, Flea Market Décor, Country Woman, HGTV Magazine, Cottage Journal, the Chicago Tribune, Reloved Magazine, and This Old House, and on popular websites including the Today Show, Better Homes and Gardens, Country Living, Apartment Therapy, Good Housekeeping, Mediakix, Bob Vila, and BuzzFeed. KariAnne has made numerous appearances on television, including Nashville Channel 5’s “Talk of the Town” and Channel 8 Dallas.

Let Your Style Shine
KariAnne Wood could tell you a lot about decorating. After all, she’s an expert. But this book isn’t about her.
It’s about you.
It’s about the colors, textures, and patterns that make your heart sing. It’s about the creative ideas you can’t wait to try in your own home. It’s about finding your one-of-a-kind style and then just going for it. And KariAnne is here to help you.
Featuring her home and those of four of her blogger friends—Yvonne Pratt (StoneGable), Bre Doucette (Rooms for Rent), Laura Putnam (Finding Home Farms), and Carmel Phillips (Our Fifth House), KariAnne takes you on a tour representing five major design styles—Farmhouse, Traditional, Coastal, Transitional, and Contemporary.
From the entryway to the living room to the kitchen to outdoor spaces, you’ll find tips and decorating inspiration for each of these different styles—to encourage you to create a home that’s amazingly, wonderfully, uniquely YOU.
You do. Even when the dinner’s burnt or you missed an important event on the calendar or your hair has suddenly developed a mind of its own. Even when you feel invisible or misunderstood or unwanted.
You’ve got this—because God’s got you. Straight from the heart of popular Thistlewood Farms blogger KariAnne Wood comes this beautiful, pocket-sized, 52-day devotional. Full of warmth and encouragement, each reading holds Scriptural reflections, personal stories, and prayers to remind us that God is always by our side. He loves us when we feel unlovable. He lifts us up and gives us a peace that passes all understanding. And in the midnight of every dark moment, he is there.
The perfect gift for anyone who needs a little hope today, You’ve Got This (Because God’s Got You) will give you the inspiration you need to keep going—and to know you’re never alone.
(Not that KariAnne Wood has ever done any of these things.)
Fans of The Magnolia Story and The Pioneer Woman will love this debut memoir from the beloved Thistlewood Farms blogger. So Close to Amazing is a collection of hilarious and heartfelt reflections on getting it almost right―and how, instead of giving up, we can choose to simply embrace our real selves right where we are. It’s a story of transparency and honesty and recognizing that perfection is completely overemphasized and overrated. It’s about grace and learning from mistakes and rejoicing in every victory, no matter how small. Because when you find joy in the “you” God created you to be, you’ll discover the amazing that was there all along.
