Good morning, good morning!
Man do I wish the Patriots had won yesterday. 😦
Today, for a potentially slow moving Monday for all of us football fans…and those who just love the Sunday that is the Superbowl party…I have an easy little Valentine’s Day project.
But first, for all of the bloggers…and anyone who likes to follow blogs and keep them all organized in one spot, a little word about the new Linky Follow tool that you’ll see top and right in the, well, top of my right sidebar. 🙂
I didn’t necessarily fully understand this when I jumped in the pool of blogs, but blogging is a game of numbers.
Here I thought it was game of eloquent writing, well edited photos and thoughtful topics – whatever the focus of your blog. Believe you me, it for sure is all of these things…plus the numbers.
Before I had a blog I would read bloggers talking about different conferences they attended with seminar topics specifically about not measuring your success in numbers. I didn’t really think too much about it pre-the space between.
But now that I am IN the space between, literally, I get it.
I started a blog because I thought it might be fun to keep a chronicle of all of the things we do in the spaces we find ourselves in. When I think back to all of the homes we’ve had and upgrades we’ve made and projects we’ve learned how to do along the way, I’m down right bummed out that many of those things live only in memory. Memory can be so fleeting.
And the response to this here blog, my friends, has been phenomenal. I didn’t know I would get so excited when I got a new comment, or a new follower, or repin on Pinterest.
Seriously?!? You like what you see enough to want to get a notification when I do something else (or are a blogger who knows about the numbers)? How cool is that for this gal? Wicked fricken’ cool I tell you!
So, when a couple of blogs announced the new Linky Follower tool I jumped right on board. It’s easy to get signed up and totally free.
How fun to be a part of something from the very first day it was announced to the whole world. Roeshel and Cheri posted all about how to get started and are also hosting a month long Giveaway Bonanza to kick start the new tool.
If you feel so inclined, it would be super cool if you would click to follow me on the new Linky Tool…and be sure to let me know you did because I would like to follow you back.

Now, back to my lazy Monday Valentine’s Day heart idea.
Did I mention she’s FREE? I always have that exact change in my wallet. 😉
See her snuck in the new gallery wall there? You may recall the faux zinc letter B was there for the reveal, or maybe not, whatever. 🙂
I thought a little pop of holiday, and color, would be fun to switch in that spot throughout the year.
For all of the deets on how to make this beauty you have to head over to A Content Housewife where I’m guest posting today, while Lianne is busy moving to Charleston. Hope it’s going well Lianne!
If you missed the nitty gritty details on how this whole wall is hanging from one screw please click here.
To hang the heart, I just hot glued a length of ribbon scrap to the back and duct taped it behind the framed stencils.
To me she’s just the right amount of Valentine’s Day in our otherwise neutral colored wall.
The whole deal took about 3 hours…perfect for a lazy evening.
I happened to be watching the collapse of Kyle Stanley at Torrey Pines. The poor guy had a 4 stroke lead on the tee at 18…and then nothing went right and he lost the tournament in a playoff.
I would gander to say my afternoon went better than his. Sorry Kyle!
Now, don’t forget to drop in on Lianne to see some more pics and how I made the rosettes.
And, if you haven’t yet, you can click right here to get signed up to follow me in the new linky tool.
And then, have a fabulous Monday.
Oh, and I’ll be back tomorrow with the announcement of the giveaway winner and my features from the Imagine the Impossibilities Link Party…I am having a seriously hard time narrowing it down…
I am sharing this project here and at:
