it’s a cinch {party features}

Hey y’all!

First off, a big phat Thank you! to everyone who has supported the first MISSION: Possible party, It’s a Cinch.  If you missed it, there are 286 easy peasy, super simple projects linked up to give you some fun, simple project ideas.  What a great resource for a little spring craftiness.  🙂

I had so much fun visiting each and every one, today I’m going to share some that I can totally see myself trying at some point if I ever get around to it.

I just did an easy little project using empty glass jars that I’ll be posting about tomorrow…but look at how Kristi at Addicted 2 Decorating used them to make this awesome hallway artwork. (more…)

Happy New Year!!! (and a few announcements)

Woo to the Hoo to good ol’, er new, 2012!

I just want to drop a quick line to start off the year with a few announcements, in addition to the tidings of good cheer, of course.  Hopefully everyone had the opportunity to ring in the new year with the ones you love.  I had a splendid evening and am stoked about all that the twenty twelve may just bring my way.  You too?

First, did you guys see Kelly’s post at Eclectically Vintage on Friday?  What?  You didn’t? Well, you’re missing out because it was all about ME!

Yessirree, Kelly did a whole post about my newly mapped dresser.  And while you’re over there checking me out, all you parents should see what creative things she did with her Elf on a Shelf this year.  So fun!

Thanks for the feature Kelly!

And, just because Kelly is right, I do get around, I have been working on some ways you all can try to keep up with me.  Here are some new deets for you, it’d be cool if you wanted stalk me on all any of these other social media outlets.

the space between has a new Facebook page.  Can you guess what it’s called?  I’ll give you a minute…  😉  Please click here and Like the page so I am not the facebook loser with one follower.  I also added the button to the right sidebar, so if you want to think about it for a minute.  You know, just make real, real sure we’re close enough to be facebook friends. Then, when you decide later to come back and take the plunge, you can.  See where it says “LET’S BE FB FRIENDS!”?  Click the Like button there and we’ll be all hooked up.

I also updated my Pinterest page.  My name is now Karah @ thespacebetweenblog.  You can find and follow me here or click on the pretty red button on the right sidebar.  If you are new to Pinterest let me know, I’ll send you an invite.  Yeah, it’s like all exclusive and you need to know people to get in.  Kinda like all the parties I was never invited to in high school. 🙂

Also in the right sidebar, just below the pretty Pinterest button is some not so pretty verbiage that just says “Follow in Bloglovin”.  This is a place where you can Like all of your favorite blogs and get easy access to all recent posts in one convenient spot.  It’s kind of like the facebook for blogs.  And, if anyone can help me change this verbiage into a better looking button or badge I’m all ears.  🙂

I also activated a bunch of different sharing buttons.  They will appear at the end of every post, right before the comment section.  So, if you like what I’m talkin’ about it’d be super cool if you liked it enough to share it.
If you don’t, that’s ok too.

I’d love your feedback either way.  So, if you’re not sharing my stuff with others you could always share your comments with me.  🙂  Who doesn’t love a little positive reinforcement every once in awhile?  Or a reality check if I post something stupid…well, it would be a stretch to say that kind of feedback would be loved, but I definitely want to hear what you have to say, so I can keep this place geared towards stuff that’s fun for all of us.

Update:  I’ve signed up on the new Linky Follower tool.  More details are here.  Please leave me a comment if you follow me so I can be sure to follow you back.  🙂

Unfortunately, I tried to set up Google Friend Connect but that code is not supported by the free wordpress sites.  Also, I don’t have a fancy phone so I’m not on Twitter.  Since I imagine my tweet would always be “hanging at home, messing around on the laptop #onmylaptopathomeagain” I figure I’d spare us all that, for now.

So, are you getting the hint that I’m super stoked about everyone who has jumped on this little band wagon and just want to be sure I continue to encourage everyone to hop on board?  Grab a button, click a like, share a post…If you like me and you know it follow my blog, dun, dun.  🙂

And, if you have any other suggestions or ideas to keep us connected let me know.

Ok, so now that we’re all set to be stuck together like glue for 2012 I’m going to give you a little space.  Enjoy the rest of your very first day ever in 2012 and I don’t know about you, but I’m going to be settling in with my little family in my vintage Ty Law jersey rooting for those New England Patriots to beat up on the Bills and gain home field advantage throughout the playoffs.  GO PATS!

2011 Shout Outs!

As 2011 comes to an end I feel inspired to give a big fat Shout Out! to everyone who took the time to Shout Out! about me at some point this year.

Yes, I do realize that I’ve only been doing this little blog thing for a couple of months so it’s not really a year worth of shout outs.  But, it is the end of the year, and I’m all about tying up lose ends so I need to be sure to give back the love.

These lovely people took the time to feature me in one way or another and I want to shout from the roof tops how thankful I am for that.  It sure did help me reach more people than just a few family members and friends – who are basically obligated to follow along anyway.  😉

I encourage everyone who takes the time to read my blog to check out at least a couple of these guys as well.  If you click their buttons below you will be redirected to their post featuring my project (because it really is all about me) but take a minute and browse around their blogs as well.  I mean, they clearly have good taste if they’re featuring my stuff.  🙂

{Decorated Driftwood Christmas Tree} – These guys featured my post highlighting the fully decorated driftwood tree with all homemade ornaments.  Remember, the tree with lighting and ornaments cost less than $15 total.  Merry Christmas to me!

{Homemade Christmas Ornaments} – These guys featured my post with the tutorials on how to make a beaded snowflake, book page star and light bulb ornament.  The ornaments that only made it through the ringer one time.  One time.

Do you know the old school song that says that.  “One time.  One time.”  ???  I tried to google it, apparently the Biebs has a song called One Time so those results took up about the first 593,708 results so I couldn’t find what I wanted.  Oh to be Bieber.

{Wedding Card Ornament} – I think it’s cute that these lovelies who featured my tutorial using cards we received at our wedding to make a Christmas tree ornament are all represented in pink.  Awwwww.  🙂

{Sea Urchin Snow(wo)man Ornament}

Kelly at Eclectically Vintage also featured these little gals along with a bunch of other interpretations of snow people here.

{Coral Photo or Place Card Holders}

{Hockey Bag Pillow} – The bag was definitely road kill before it became a pillow.

{Driftwood Christmas Tree} – And my very first post…granted a couple of these features were solicited.  As much I would have liked to have come out of the gate as the Justin Bieber of blogging, I chose to send a few emails to do some shameless promotion to try to get the word out about my little space in the blog-o-sphere.  But, some of them liked me all on their own.  They liked me, they really did.  😉

I do have an I’ve Been Featured! page here at the space between that I update probably a bit too eagerly every time a new feature comes up.  So please check in on it when you think about it to see what new peeps are showing off my stuff.

AND, to everyone who continues to choose to read my posts, follow along, and comment when you’re so inspired I am incredibly grateful.  This little blog and all of you have been a wonderful addition to my 2011.  I look forward to continuing to share some space with you all in 2012!
