Amaze Me Monday #11

Happy Sunday!

It’s been a relaxing weekend after a very hectic week!  Yesterday, I grabbed my daughter and declared it a NO BOYS day!  We went shopping, had manicures and pedicures, and just a nice meal out.  It’s so much fun to hang out with my daughter.  Today, my Hubby loaded up the boys early this morning and took them away for the day. (they’re still not home as I’m writing this post) I really needed this peace and quiet to regain my strength to do it all over again this week.   See….. that house guest that I told you all about last Sunday, has decided to stay for another week!  And along with him came more kids! yeah.   Please keep me in your prayers ~ Carrie

Let me share with you some of the amazing projects from last week!

Christina’s Adventures in on a pillow roll! How fabulous is this pillow!?!?!

Jill from Envirocraftiness is running a Sisterly Spa Series.  You must check it out!

The sweet Kaitlyn from The Birds Nest made an easy no sew Ballard knock-off!  Love it….’cause ya’ll know that I would have complicated this project by embroidery and sewing.

Liz from Savvy Seasons has combined two ready made curtain panels together and created height and drama!!!  Way to go Liz!

Heather at The Black’s Best just oozes with yummy goodness with this creation!

Ten June amazed me with this striking mirror!

This has to be the sweetest little Valentine’s gingerbread house by Giggles Galore.

And the list goes on… you ladies are so talented and inspiring! 

Please link up and share your decorating, crafting, tutorial, giveaways and other related projects for another fun week!!!

Linking up to the party is very simple.

  1. Copy/paste the web address of the specific blog post, NOT your blog home page.

  2. Add a title to your project.

  3. Choose a picture that best shows your project.

Please grab this button and add it to your post or sidebar.

Just one quick note~  Linky Tools has give bloggers just a few days to either pay up or have their links deleted!  Up until now it has been a free service.  It’s pretty extreme!!   After looking around and not being happy with the other options, I paid for a year subscription.  However, until just now, I realize Linky Tools has made other changes.  The thumbnail sizes only go as big as 120px and the title characters only go up to 50.  I have been running the blog party at 160px and 70 characters.  This is not what I wanted for my blog party but I will have to live with it until I can figure something else out.   Sorry for the changes.


  1. ahhh thanks so much for the feature!! I also featured your DIY notepad today! :)

    Have a great week!

  2. Hi Carrie! Spending the day with your daughter must have been so much fun!! Thanks for the great party!!

    Susan and Bentley

  3. Doesn't the linky charge just drive you crazy? I'm too cheap for that. Unless I can find a freebie alternative, this will be the death of Not "Baaad" Sundays with LambAround.
    Phooey! :p

  4. Hi Carrie!
    Girls Days are the BEST! Love 'em ;)

    Love what you shared, thank you! I am a huge fan of Liz at Savvy Seasons. She has great ideas!

    I'll think happy thoughts for you this week with extra house guests! I hope it goes well!

  5. Hi Carrie~ I am not happy about the linky charges either... I am not sure if i will switch over to that other one that the other bloggers use all the time or just try and make mrlinky work. I noticed there were changes, and it seems also like the pictures are not as clear as they used to be, plus linky tools has seemed to be so unreliable lately. Makes me cranky. Have you heard anything about the other popular one at all? I have to pay or switch before Thursday for my party. Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

  6. Sounds like yall had a lovely day! I need a day like that! Thanks for hosting! Have a great week!

  7. Hey girl I had some glitches in my blog and had to recreate a new one will you come follow me there its thank you!!
