This past week, I’ve been in the midst of some major organizing.  

Raise your hand if that’s you, too.

My organizing isn’t exactly what you’d expect.  I’ve been spending my time organizing the blog to hopefully make your experience here even better.  Most of things I’m attempting to do require me to do some research to figure out how to do it… before I can even start.  If you’re a blogger that tries not to rely on an expert/designer, etc., you know how much time this takes.  I must say there’s a lot of satisfaction from the accomplishment.  However, because I don’t have many posts completed in advance, I only have a few posts up this week.  Maybe that will give you time to pursue something from the archives like this…

Pretty embellished hand towels for Valentine's Day at


It’s not too early to be thinking of Valentine’s Day, especially if you want to DIY a project or two.  You might even choose to get creative like me and whip up a pair of pretty Valentine hand towels for the occasion.

Just in case you missed all the extraordinary goodness from this past week…

  4. Hey Diane – So funny that you would mention organizing your blog. I just wrote a post yesterday about NOT being an organized blogger and I really don’t even know where to start. I put so much time into blogging that I’m feeling like it is time to earn a little income. Maybe then I wouldn’t feel guilty over the things it keeps me from doing! Haha!
    Thank you for another wonderful party and blessings to you dear,

    • Diane says

      Patti… this organizing thing is tedious and I’d rather do something creative 😉 but it will be so good for everyone when it’s done. 😉
      As far as earning income… you go girl!!
      Thanks for popping over. [[hugs]]

  5. Hello beautiful! I always love stopping by at your fabulous party. Please stop by our party. We would really appreciate it. Happy Tuesday! Lou Lou Girls
