month in minutes: march

Hey hey!  Happy Monday.

Most of you in the states are probably off today, right?  Hard to believe how easy it is to get out of touch with holiday schedules.  I don’t even know if today is a holiday here in Curacao.

Oblivious much.  :/

Anyway, it seems like a good day to review all that was the month of March, with some new stuff mixed in for fun.  For me, it was one of those months where I feel like I didn’t actually finish much.  I worked on a lot, was a bit all over the board…but let’s see what was actually done, shall we?

We started off with a fun journey to determine …

I shared some of my thoughts on it here and then we asked you all to share your thoughts here.  I will share a BRAND NEW blog goal at the end of this post, too.  (Like I said, new stuff mixed in for fun.)  🙂
I actually spent a few posts talking about some of our spaces.  And since then I’ve played around with updating the our space page on this here blog.  You know, for those times you just want to sit and point and laugh at my expense.  😉
And, so I can reminisce a bit about some spaces that I love, here are a couple shots of some of the spaces I haven’t yet shared.
Some land in Cali on a wintery day.
And a three tier deck with built in fire pit and seating in Indy.
Then we had the big Mission: Possible launch.  You remember the one.  The one where we introduced our new themed link party schedule for the Last Tuesday of every other month.  I’m sporting the button in my sidebar, but if you still need to grab one for your site to post as a friendly reminder, here you go.  The Great Outdoors is next … I’m already working on a little somethin’, somethin’ to spruce up part of our outdoor living space.  And I’m not working on it quite fast enough according to the other resident of this household.  He better be careful or I’ll stencil numbers all over it.  😉

Then I participated in a fun little game of blog tag.  Not too many who I tagged chose to participate…ummmm, well actually only one who I know about did.  I always new Amy from Buffalo Roam was my favorite.  😉

But I can’t blame anyone, because in March the very sweet Marilyn from 4 You With Love kindly bestowed upon this little space the Versatile Blogger Award and the always inspiring Heidi Milton said some of the kindest words about me and this here blog that I ever did hear when she gave us the Liebster Award.  I’m still smiling…at the realization I’m not nearly as cute in person as I can make myself appear from a far off photograph.  🙂

And I didn’t really do anything with these lovely awards other than have a celebratory cocktail every day.  But I sure do appreciate the recognition.  Thanks so much ladies!!

Then I posted about a few It’s a Cinch projects I did to go along with our theme for the March Last Tuesday party…and I posted some cinchy inspiration ideas from a couple of blogs I love.

For all kinds of easy peasy project ideas you can always refer to the links at our It’s a Cinch party, which happened to be the same day I shared a super simple spring wreath I made.

One of my all time favorite projects was announced when I was on a little family vacation, the Pass It On Project.  An idea to pass along some kindness just for the sake of it.

I’ve been linking up to everyone I know who is participating so you all can follow all of the kindness.  Just refer back to my post and you can see what everybody has been making and sending.  And if you know of anyone I haven’t linked up please just let me know.  I definitely don’t want to leave anyone out.  🙂

Oh, and you may have noticed this fun little button in my sidebar, but my canvas dog silhouettes (the post that keeps on posting) were selected as a finalist for consideration for a feature in Cottages and Bungalows magazine!  Squeal!  Sorry for all of the yelling but that is Crazy Exciting!

No, we didn’t win, but my new blog goal is to be some-way-or-another featured in some sort of magazine.  I mean seriously, how frickin’ cool would that be?!?  Well, as of yet I wouldn’t know how cool, but I sure hope to find out.  🙂

In the meantime I’m off to have more celebratory cocktails … it is after all a holiday … isn’t it?  🙂

And … just a friendly reminder that these months in minutes can be easily accessed from the stamp like buttons appropriately named by month right. over. there. ———————————–>

every day is party day

Well, at least it feels like it around here lately!  So grab your adult beverage of choice and settle in for more project inspiration.  Because tonight we’re celebrating Ginger’s 1st Blogoversary with a par-tay.

Have you met Ginger?  If not, and you like easy and creative craft ideas, you’re missing out.  And today would be the perfect day to head over to Ginger Snap Crafts (appropriately named I’d say) and say Congratulations!  And while you’re there check out a few of my favorite projects of Ginger’s.

Like her recent herb pot upgrade. (more…)

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…)

It’s {not always} a Cinch: a link party

Hey y’all!!

I’m back!  Vacation was fantastic!  Loved it so much!

Fun times with a great family, adorable nephew, funny brother, sister-in-law who thought the strike through was showing my blog mistakes.  (Sure do love you Bonnie!!)

And too many “just blog about it” jokes to go around.  My sweet, sweet mother didn’t even come to my defense…apparently I have a bit of a blog audition going on here, too.

Sure do love you family.  🙂

And … after vacation … it’s always fun to be at the gate in the airport going to Curacao  … when I’m heading home.  Smile.

So, there’s really no complaining here.

But have you ever had those days when you thought you would be getting all crafty. (more…)

MISSION: Possible {it’s a cinch} Launch

Are you hearing the theme music now?

Remember the fab gals I co-hosted the Imagine the Impossibilities extravaganza with?

Well, we’re at it again!  We’ve been chatting.  Really, we had a conference call.  How fun to put a voice with a blog…not exactly the same as a face with a name…but one step closer.  🙂

And today we are collectively launching … drum roll please … (more…)

the month in minutes – january 2012

Hello, hello!

A little reminder, if you haven’t already linked up your blog goals, we’re keeping the party open until Thursday night for anyone getting a late start…we’d love to hear yours.  And you can find mine here.

Now, I’m going to start a little something new here today.

Can you believe this little blog had more page views in February than in its 3 previous months combined?  Serious!  That’s incredible to me.

So, I shout out a Welcome! to everyone who is relatively new around here.  Thank you so much for coming by, please make yourself at home…and let me know you’re here.  🙂

And, to everyone who has been around from the beginning…don’t think I don’t know who you are…even if you’ve never left a comment.  I sure do appreciate you all sticking around…and would love to hear what you have to say about every single post things every now and then.  🙂

In light of all of our fun new traffic I thought it makes sense to do a little month in review, if you will.  But,…I’m going to start with January…total rule breaker here.  Seems like a nice, clean, appropriate place to start, don’t you think?  And, I’ll be sure to mix in a few new things too…just to keep it fresh for ya.

So, I guess I should start by saying HAPPY New Year!  I’m sporting my party outfit and blowing my noise maker right now.  🙂  But, the girls rang in the new year looking a little more like this.

par-tay fri-day

Here we are, it’s Friday, Party Day.  Can I get a woop woop?
