A Sneak Peek and Cool Parties

Hi, sweets!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
I spent it waving my vintage chic wand
(a.k.a. paint roller)
  over a neglected hallway nook.
Here’s a peek…
It turned out so lovely
and I can’t wait to share it with you.
As a happy lil’ Resident Blogger at The DIY Club
for the next 6 months,
I’ll be sharing the tutorial over there this week
but I’ll let you know the minute it goes up over here.

The January 2011 Project Party
is officially underway at the Club
and ends January 20th.

DIY Club
The prize package this month is AWESOME.
Even if you don’t link up,
it’s a great place to get some inspiration!
They’re also handing out some cute blog bling.
 If you follow them, grab your charm…
If you win the monthly contest, you’ll get another.

A few of my bloggin’ buds
have some cool parties going on too.

WhisperWood Cottage
This party opens on 1/11/11 at 11:11 am CST!
(Amy’s home was recently featured in Cottages & Bungalows magazine.)
The Design Confidential is hosting a 
Hand Built Pledge Party
that runs throughout 2011.
 It’s a new and very cool party concept.
You don’t even need a blog to participate.
I love me some organization
(not that you could tell at the moment)
and I’m excited about Maryann’s new party too.
 If you’re looking to get organized,
she’ll announce an area to tackle on Monday
and you’ll show off your results on Friday.
How’s that for a little fun motivation?
I’m headed out this morning
for some paper mache letters and things
for a lavender letter (and possibly tree) tutorial this week too.
I’ll see you soon.
Thanks for reading.
I appreciate every letter of every comment
(punctuation included).

If you took the time to leave me one or email,
thank you and you’ll hear from me tomorrow.
I didn’t get much bloggin’ time this weekend…
my hallway nook and a snowman needed me.

It FINALLY snowed (beyond a dusting) in New York!

I apologize that you now see a partial post and have to click over to my blog for the rest. I try to create lovely and original content so I appreciate your understanding.

  17. Had to laugh at your last sentence, you should come up to Syracuse to get some of our snow! I can’t believe you guys haven’t had much yet this year, we’re so close and yet so different in weather.

thank you for taking a minute to write...
