Wow! Such an honor to have one of my FAVORITE bloggers, Jennifer at Tatertots & Jello, feature me today! Her site is stacked full of great ideas! My email was blowing up with readers subscribing to my blog after she featured me. Seriously, so honored…speechless, grateful, humbled. Goosebumps. I just ADORE inspiring women to get creative! In the spirit of not letting my new readers down, here’s what I’m up to today….
We are getting ready to feature our home in “The Ultimate Tour of New Homes” here in Oregon. Our home will be open to the public for two weekends. Of course, I feel I have to have everything looking photo-ready and finish up a gazillion DIY project. Sorry for the very non-photoshoped photos, but here’s what I’m working on this week. I know. I know. I should crop, and lighten up the exposure. But, with SO many project to get done, I can’t slow down. Reheat coffee, GO, reheat coffee, glue, reheat coffee, staple! 🙂
Sweet little bird plates from TJMaxx $2.99
Only the fanciest plate hangers for me! lol Gotta love a hot glue gun! I ain’t gonna lie… This particular plate fell off the wall because I should NOT have glued the jute onto the sticker. The weight of the plate was too much, the sticker peeled, the plate fell. It didn’t break though! Yah. A re-glue and now it’s good.
They also had these $2 white plates at TJMaxx. A little craft paint and willing hands…….and voila. Priceless keepsake. Now my bare wall is filled up with color and joy. Walking down the stairs with laundry to put away is a little more enjoyable!
And while I’m writing this, the kids are in the kitchen ALONE dying eggs. Great job! Just a little messy but this why I did NOT install marble though. It’s granite ONLY for this crafty house. Next time I’ll lay lipped cookie sheets under their dying are. FYI- The burlap covered Easter decoration (above) is just a floral foam block with Dollar Store eggs poked in it and burlap wrapped. 5 minute, $5 craft!
Big WELCOME and HUG to all my new readers! I’m SO happy we’ve met here.
