Here’s what we’ve been up to!

We’re so excited to introduce our new Project Gallery!

We’ve been meaning to create one for well…forever and we finally set aside some time to compiling one. We only have a few categories up right now, but we’ll be adding to it all week! Click on the Project Gallery Tab above and check it out! 

We were also so honored to have Amanda from Serenity Now sharing her Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie recipe

and Linda of It All Started with Paint sharing about the special-ness of sisters and a sewing project with us this week!

Cassie from Primitive and Proper showed off her beautiful Master Bedroom and we absolutely love the fun and vibrant colors!

I am sure you have seen this fabulous Kitchen Makeover from Carmel of Our Fifth House, but just in case you haven’t we had to show it off one more time! Come take a tour.

Kayli of Head Over Heels shared her lovely and serene Pretty Aqua Bathroom Update. We adore the nautical touches!

Kristien of Sophia’s made over a Craig’s List find she picked up for $50.00 into this gorgeous Craft Room Cabinet. We are coveting those brass pulls!

Tanya from twelve-O-eight gave a Card Table quite the chic transformation and we agree with her that this is the perfect way to add extra seating without losing any style!

I think we have a color scheme going on in the makeover category this week. grin! Check out this fun Lampshade Remake from Katie of Creatively Living.  Visit her blog to see the before!


Sherry from Living in the Rain Garden made gorgeous Parson Chair slipcovers out of a Target Shower Curtain and she shares an awesome tutorial for how to do this!

Jenn from Clean and Scentsible gave us some awesome ideas for Lego Storage and Organizing and we just love her ingenuity!

Liz from Love Grows Wild made this darling Lullaby Lyric Pillow for her sons and we think it would be the sweetest addition to any child’s room!


Not only is this Homemade Vitamin Water from The Not So Super Mama  healthy for you, but it’s gorgeous to look at as well!

To “die for” is right! We wish we could get a forkful of this Too Die for Carrot Cake from Trish of Mom On Timeout. 

Football season is upon us and we will be making a batch of these yummy Creamy Buffalo Chicken Bites from Jamie of Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom to kick off the start of College Football this weekend!

we’ve loved featuring Outdoor Space this summer but now we’re ready to move onto your fabulous fall project! 


We love this pumpkin and birdbath vignette from Decorating Ideas Made Easy!

Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict never ceases to amaze us and her Decoupage Pumpkins is no exception!

We love this darling Mini Vintage Pumpkin Label Crate from Paula of Creating in a Glass Slipper. The perfect size to display votive tea lights.

Rhonda of Ramblings of a Southern Girl made these sweet Fall Pillows for her booth, and she shares the instructions for them over at her blog.


Sonya from Beyond the Screen Door shared with us these gorgeous wedding photos from her daughter’s wedding…if these don’t inspire you we don’t know what would!

Leslie of Gwen Moss Living a Curious Life is sharing a Four Part Series on Letting Go of our Kids. As many of us our sending kiddos off to school for the first time (Vanessa) or sending them out of the nest and onto college and life (Heather) we all could use these great lessons on loving and letting go.  Thank you Leslie!

    I am loving all the Fall things, and those decoupaged pumpkins, those blew me away! I wish it was feeling like Fall here….94 degrees. I am ready for cooler, crisper weather, and pants! Have a wonderful holiday weekend.

    Heather, good luck with sending child off to college, oh my, the time goes by so fast. We have two years left until we walk this road.

    Ummm, Heather & Vanessa, I don’t know what’s wrong but I see my links repeated so many times. I was trying to link up but unfortunately couldn’t. And now that i have I see 5 of them! Please don’t think of me as a spammer :) And would you be kind enough to delete them save one? Roy from Trumatter

    Unfortunately I posted my Homemade Quick Mixes twice. It showed that it wasn’t going through, so I tried again, and it ended up having gone through both times. Sorry! I tried to delete one, but couldn’t figure out how.

    Thanks for the hosting this Linky party!
