A few of My Faves this Friday....

I didn't realize just how hard it would be to keep up with my creative projects now that summer is here. I have been so wrapped up in having fun with my kiddos I haven't even used Gorilla glue or Mod Podge in days!! ( I know, I should be getting the shakes by now)

Can you blame me?? Who could leave this kind of fun to go pick up a paint brush??

But...that doesn't mean I haven't been keeping up with what everyone else is doing out there in blog land, so I wanted to share a few of my favorite projects from a few of my ultra creative friends...

First up....Jamie from Crafty, Scrappy, Happy
You have to go see how she turned an old cabinet into this beautiful mantle....she is sooo amazing, and her projects reflect just how amazing she is! Oh..and she's got a GIVEAWAY going on at her blog right now too, stop by a say hello, I promise you will fall in love with her too!

I have become fast friends with this next blogger...Mrs.Love from Love Sweet Love can show you how to make this oh so sweet Tiered Planter (I think this may just be one of the projects I'll try this weekend)LOVE it!!

Up next.....let my great friend from Life Without Whiteout make you laugh until your sides hurt and show you how to do some pretty great projects this have to go see how she did this Pottery Barn knock off....she made this seem so easy, maybe even I could make one too :)

We probably all know Heather and Vanessa from At the Picket Fence , but just in case you missed it...check out how they turned this $3.00 caddie into a great way to make outdoor dining easier...I am always so inspired by what they have going on at their blog and know you will be too!

So...that's Friday Faves...and ladies...I don't have a
"featured here" button just yet, I'll see if I can figure that out in the coming days...that is if were aren't catching lighting bugs, laying by the pool, swinging on ropes in the creek, making homemade ice cream, roasting get the picture, we are just having too much fun to slow down right now :)

Thank you all for your kindness, encouragement, and means more to me than you know!


  1. Awww, thanks Carmella for featuring my dining caddy! You're the best! I'm with you on the summer fun. It's hard to be painting when all I wanna do is be at the pool! Enjoy these precious summer days, they go by too fast and you can't get the back. The Mod Podge will always be there. ;)

    Have a beautiful weekend!

  2. Hello my dear friend! You are SO SO SO sweet and wonderful! Thank you so much for your sweet words, I just don't think I can say enough how much I adore you and your blog! I am so thankful for our blogging friendship! PS I would rather be playing than crafting with those fun little ones too! Just like Heather said---the mod podge will always be there!!!
