March + April recap

So it is me or is this year flying by??  How is it 2 days from MAY already?  In some ways it is going by too fast and in many other ways not fast enough.

Anyways, I somehow missed posting a March recap so this will recap March and April projects that you may have missed on the blog.  (1 bonus point at the end if you saw and read each one of below posts already back when I posted them 😉

Started out March posting a collection of 20+ Spring projects.  I was itching for spring but little did I know spring was going to be a LONG time coming this year.20  Spring project inspiration

Then I shared how I made a DIY chalkboard from a thrift store frame.

I decorated my mantel for spring.

And made a Tulip wreath perfect for spring!

And I have also been working on organizing and purging!  Used some new products from Thirty One to organize this Ikea shelf.

Continued sharing rooms in our home- this time the entryway.  I LOVED your comments and suggestions on this post.  I am keeping my eyes peeled for just the right rug with a pop of color and trying to decide which option to do with the lamps.


Christa from Brown Sugar Toast shared a fun felt flower tutorial on the blog.

Love dressers for storage in the home.  Here is the before and after of the painted dresser you see in my entryway.

I helped my nieces and nephew create some trinket boxes.

I am so loving these pillows outside on my bench!  They are so cheery to greet me as I come home and back into our home.  I showed how I made a no-sew burlap rosette – easy and pretty!

And Christa was back with another great tutorial on how to make this rolled fabric flower ring.

I helped decorate and host a Western theme baby shower at church last week and shared the fun décor and food.

Another bonus point if you are still reading this post. Winking smile

My favorite post of the month – probably my entryway home tour post because you guys had some great ideas and have really helped me to nail down what I want to do – now to just find the stuff I need and make it happen.

Can’t wait to show you a fun before/after of a recent yard sale find on Wednesday.  See you back then!

So did you miss any posts?  How many bonus points do YOU have from this post?

  5. After I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and now whenever a comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.

    Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!
