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. ———————————–>

the month in minutes – february 2012

Hey there!

Hopefully the week is treating you well.

Yesterday we did our very first month in review and we’re going to follow it up today with a little February rundown.  The plan is to keep these posts in the right sidebar for easy access to links to all of your favorite posts.  I’ll also be sure to toss in some new things just to keep you guessing.  😉

And, if anyone has any navigation tips for this little blog please let me have ’em…I don’t want any fun information getting lost as we continue to grow.  🙂

Now, February started with all of the nitty gritty details about how I hung a gallery wall from one little screw for $15.

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.
