Link Party Highlights #38 – “Turning the Daunting Into the Do-able”

I’m up to my eyeballs in all kinds of fun stuff!  I’m helping a friend plan and decorate for her son’s wedding reception in 2 weeks and then the following week, my BFF and I are participating in a street fair that will be in Old Town Clovis called Glorious Junk Days.  It will be held on Sunday, October 21 from 8-4pm.  If you happen to be in Clovis that day, please come by our booth and say, “Hi”!

Yesterday, as I was painting I thought to myself, “If I didn’t have these 2 events coming up, what would I be doing?”  It really dumbfounded me! ha! I always seem to be in the middle of a big project or preparing for an event. I seriously don’t plan to be this busy… it all seems to end up on my plate.  I’m definitely not complaining because I LOVE IT.

It’s nice to be up and active.  It’s been hard for me to sit for long periods of time because of the old sciatica acting up.  The workouts with my trainer 3 times a week is really helping to strength my back muscles.  I continue to stretch in the mornings and do my exercises daily.  It is definitely getting better, but amazed at how quickly in flares up again with too much sitting.

We had some wonderful link ups at the party last week.  Amazing ladies out there….

Sarah from Repeat Crafter Me showed us an easy tutorial for her Yarn Wrapped Letters for Fall.

Her letters mounted on the frames turned out so cute!

Julie from Knot All That I Seam showed off her Sunroom Lounge Makeover.

They turned out great.
They look so fresh and clean.

Marty from Marty’s Musings’ wonderful husband made her a Branch Candle Center Piece.


Bella from Art Club Blog shares her beautiful Painted Pages.

You need to head over to her blog and see her other
painted pages that she has framed.

Hetty from the Stone House Workshop painted a beautiful Antique Buffet for a customer with Annie Sloan’s Chalkpaint – Aubusson Blue.

The buffet turned out so pretty.

Kaylee from Couponing and Cooking shared one of her families favorite Fall recipes (along with several others).

Pasta with Pumpkin Sage Cream Sauce
I pinned this one.
Definitely making it when it FEELS like fall around here :-).

Thank you for sharing everyone!
I’d love it if you grabbed a “featured” button (in the right hand column)
and put it on your blog somewhere so more could join the party.
