AMM #17 Features

Thank you so much for being patient with me and my computer troubles.  I’m about 95% up and running.  Computers!  They can be either a blessing or a nightmare……

Here is a teaser photograph of a few unfinished projects I have going on right now.  All of them are waiting for one supply or another to be finished.  The down side of living in a small town, I either have to drive at least  30 minutes or order online. I can’t wait to show them to you!

Because I appreciate everyone who participates in the “Amaze Me Monday” blog party, I wouldn’t think about skipping the feature section of last weeks party.  Every week gets more amazing!!  Here are a few amazing links from “Amaze Me Monday #17” ……..

Suesan from Frou Frugal reupholstered this beautiful ancestral map settee!  I love it even more knowing that Suesan customized the fabric herself! Fantastic.


Tracie from Cleverly Inspired caught my eye with her amazing Foyer Remodel.  I’m currently selecting moldings for my own foyer.  Tracie’s  foyer looks so fabulous and timeless!  And the chandelier is over-the-top gorgeous.  Well done.

Jodie from Love Laughter and D├ęcor shared this adorable Cowboy Themed Birthday Party!  A party like this could have you named “Most WANTED Mom”.   Check it out all the other great party accessories!    

Full of Great Ideas shared an easy way to dress up a flat screen TV with a Custom Made TV Frame.   With a few pieces of wood and molding you could have one too!  Great idea.

Kate from Creatively Living Outside the Box shares her bold move in the kitchen….. Chalkboard Backed Open Cabinets!  This takes kahunas {in my opinion}!  But don’t you just love the look!?!?! 

Here’s a fun idea from Jaderbomb, Homemade Notepad using paint chips!  The minute I saw this fun project, I thought this would be great to carry around in my pocketbook using the paint chips from the room I’m remodeling!  Gotta give this a try.

Funky Frame Tutorial constructed by Not Just a Housewife.   Think of all the fun shapes you could make a frame into????  Not to mention the endless ways to decorate and paint!!!! 


We are getting closer to Spring Break and I’m gathering ideas that will keep my kiddos busy….. 

Here are a few fun ideas to do together.
