THAT DIY PARTY

It’s that time of the week, time for THAT DIY PARTY! With the weather finally cooperating, I’ve been working on about 4 projects all at the same time. Exhausting. Sore-muscles kind of days. But enjoying every minute!  I’ll be sharing a patio mini-makeover this week and some other fun DIY projects.

That DIY Party

If you missed it last week, I shared my globe light fixture cover

And sorry that I haven’t had time to write up DIY highlights for the party. But I’ve been pinning!

I’ll share the DIY party highlights in a separate post this week.

Remember my dinky little painted rug accent? It’s nothing compared to this week’s popular link from Katie from Creatively Living who saved an old stained rug with a stencil. Awesome transformation!

Jenny from Days of Chalk & Chocolate was in the same mind set. Great minds DIY alike, right? She shares some great tips which is good because I have just the rug in mind.

Pinterest PinFest – February 2012

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!  xoxo

The DIY Show Off

I live in the north, might be suffering symptoms of cabin fever, seasonal affective disorder and just lo-o-o-o-nging for sunshine and fresh air, open windows, green grass, warm temperatures and longer days but I do always remember that I am blessed and have so much to be thankful for and don’t really sink into any sort of depression, just a little case of the ‘blahs’ and discouragement. Some days, I just dream of staying snuggled all day…

I find comfort in socializing via blogging, making new friends, laughing, crying and celebrating life with good friends.

So in honor of warm fuzzy feelings {via Pinterest, of course} and reminders to embrace the change in seasons, I’m loving today.  Snow and cold and all.  I’m feeling blessed and warm surrounded by your friendship.

Winter days are perfect for comforting foods…{click image for source}

Even pedicures are on strike…

But chunky warm sweater hugs are the best… {yes, please!}

And when I’m feeling down and I get a comment from you, it’s just like someone gave me a …

Sending you warm wishes and a smile…

Bundle up and be happy. Spring is right around the corner and in the meantime, our blog friends are just a url away. 🙂
