Share It One More Time Link Party and Features #26

Good morning everyone. 
 It's time for the 
Share It One More Time Link Party and Features.

Can you believe how fast these weeks just fly by.  I am having trouble believing that it's time to start the Fall crafts and decorating - I'm definitely not ready.  Papa is going to get my totes for me this weekend to start putting it all together but that doesn't mean I am ready to start.  I would like to have a few more days of summer to just relax a bit more.

Hi everyone.  Happy Saturday to you all - hope you are enjoying yours as we are ours. This was our first week back to school and getting ourselves back into the groove of a schedule - I am so glad there will be some order back in our lives.  This summer was quite hectic for us with all the comings and goings of a large family.  I am so looking forward to quieter days - how about you.

Dorm Room Decor - DIY Dish Organizer

Hi everyone.  Today I am sharing another project I made for "Sissy's" dorm room.  This is more for organization than it is for decor but I still dressed it up a bit in her blue and black theme to make it more fun.  This is what I call a dish organizer - something to make things a bit easier for her.  It contains paper plates, bowls, cups, plastic eating utensils, napkins and straws to make it easier for her to have snacks and quick meals in the dorm. Everything she needs is right in one place.

DIY Wall Art Flip -

Hi everyone.
Last month I participated in a DIY Wall Art Blog Hop with 15 other bloggers.  We had so much fun with this that we decided to do it again this month but with a bit of a spin on it.  This month's challenge was to use one of the other blogger's projects as inspiration and create a new piece of wall art from that inspiration.  Thus the DIY Wall Art Flip was born.

Hi everyone. 
 This is the last week before school starts and today our family is at "Sissy's" move in day at college.  We have been working towards this day for several weeks now and hopefully have been able to come up with some great ideas to make her dorm room look a little like home. I know you all have been as busy as we have  making your back to school preps for your kiddos also. Such a big step no matter what grade they are entering.  So let's take a little time and relax for a few cause it's also time for the

18 Amazing Back to School Ideas

Hi everyone, 
I am having trouble believing that it's really time for school to start - but it is indeed.  Next week "Miss A" has her first day of 5th grade and "Sissy" will be away at college.  Our "Mimi" is entering her senior year in high school and "Bubba" is starting high school - then our other grands in Delaware are going to be a freshman and a first year middle schooler.  My how time flies.  
Needless to say we have been busy getting things ready for all these kiddos to start back on the right foot.  So when Elizabeth Joan Designs put together a round up of amazing back to school ideas I was thrilled to find so many awesome ones to help us start this school year.  But then I was really thrilled to see that they had included one of our very own ideas - DIY Dorm Decor - we put together for "Sissy".   Don't just take my word for it check these out and visit a few - I'm sure you'll agree these ladies put together the best of the best!

Tweak It Inspiration Thursday #2

Hello everyone.  
Today is Tweak It Thursday Inspiration.  I am having so much fun doing these - I hope you are enjoying them just as much.  Today Tammy will be bringing you the feature so I am going to turn it over to her.

Welcome back to another Tweak it Inspiration Thursday-Yellow and Blue Table Setting 

This is our second edition of "Tweak it Inspiration Thursday"  I am very excited that it is my week to host and feature one of you today!  I couldn't wait to share who and what  inspired me from last weeks party.  Did you happen to see the first "Tweak it Inspiration Thursday" and what inspired Cathy?  You can check that out here.
Before I get to what inspired me,  I would like to ask you all a huge favor.  As you now know last week Cathy featured Janet from Sweet Inspirations by JP Designs , I just learned some very sad news, her husband has suffered from a heart attack and he is still in the hospital and scheduled for surgery Tuesday, by the time you read this, I am in hopes he has had this surgery and on his way to recovery.  A very sweet co-worker of Janet's husband  set up a Go Fund It,  If you can help donate anything please do- if not please pray for Ralph, Janet and her family. Thank you!

Today I will be featuring Amy from Atta Girl Says on her adorable Black and Yellow Elegant Table Setting and Ideas.  The details she put into this table are so inspiring and quite the "Bee's Knees" along with an amazing tutorial she presents - a video on how to fold pinwheel napkins.

DIY Dorm Decor - Part 1

Hi everyone. 
 Can you believe it's that time of year already? I mean school is starting and fall is upon us and it seems like Summer just started last week.  This year has flown by especially fast as we have passed so many milestones with our family.  And with this week yet another - our second oldest grand daughter "Sissy" is off to college.  I knew this day was coming - but did it have to come so soon?  My how I am going to miss her. She asked me to do some decor for her dorm room - so I am going to sharing a little series of DIY Dorm Decor with you.  All of these projects have come from thrift stores or were salvaged from the trash - so they are budget friendly and as always with me - quite easy.
Our first is an updated bulletin board and monogram frame to brighten those blah dorm rooms.

Share It One More Time Party and Features #23

Hi everyone.  It's Saturday again and that means it's time for the

Share It One More Time Party and Features

This is my favorite day of the week when I can see what you all have been doing this week and bring to link up.  I always find so many wonderful projects and recipes here.  I have a to do list from these parties a mile long now how about you?   This week Tammy is hosting so I am going to turn it over to her.

Hi Share it One More Time  Friends
   How have you all been?  By the looks of last weeks party you all have been pretty busy!   Did you all see the amazing post that Cathy was inspired by and how she was so inspired she "tweaked" it up a bit,  while being inspired by   Sweet Inspirations by JP Designs  party link.    Do you know about our new feature?  If not let me fill you in.  Every Thursday we will be doing a special feature called 

Tweak it Inspirtion Thrusday logo jpg

We thought it would be fun to feature one of you and share with you how we were inspired by it.   Do you ever see something that was linked up at a party and want to make it, but you want to make it your own?      This is the reason we all link up   to inspire and  share with others...right?   Do you ever wonder if anyone that actually takes what you have shared and loved it so much they made one of their own?    That is exactly what we will be doing every Thursday, we will be "Tweaking it" up a bit and sharing how you inspired us!  If you would like to see what inspired Cathy you can check that out here.  I already have my inspiration picked out from last weeks party and I can't wait to share it on Thursday with you all!   I can't wait to see what you all have to share this week!

Vintage Paint and more... Junk Revision Challenge

 Each month we are given a theme to work with.  Then we try to find an item  to salvage from the trash or a thrift store  and re-purpose it to fit that theme. On the first Monday of each month each of us will share our item in the Junk Revision Challenge post on each of our blogs.  This month's challenge was "an outdoor project".  I decided to make a welcome sign to hang at our front entry.
