Blossoming Ideas

Good Morning Dolls!

I'm back this cozy morning to tell you about my new blog approach.  I was thinking about when I started this blog back in '10.  I had envisioned me getting all wrapped up in immediate renos on my house.  Painting every room top to bottom and turning my kitchen into my "dream kitchen" in a couple of months.  Who was I fooling?  No one (well maybe just myself).

Those who have tackled those kinds of projects before know that the remodeling process takes years, not months.  My blog started to reflect that lull.  I wish I could this, I wish I could that...well, you get the point.  Something that my blog WAS doing was keeping me motivated.  I had an endless borage of ideas filling my brain.  I will be keeping inspiration photos intact.

After all, we all search blogs for inspiration.  Some of you are amazing DIY experts.  You can turn a popsicle stick into a chandelier.  I am not one of those that can dream up something like that.  I CAN learn from a tutorial and put my own spin on something.  So that's it!  My blog will be an outlet of sharing.

I will share DIY ideas I love and feel brave enough to this pantry using IKEA cd storage units.  I will post my before and afters.

I will share an occasional recipe, linked to the original chef.  This is Cheese Pecan Dip (yum) found via Food and Cook.

Perhaps you may even see an outfit or two thrown in here and there.

There will be link parties, giveaways, features, and a few other things I have up my sleeve.  All the while, they will be things that keep you occupied while I redo my home.  My own pics will be posted as I tackle.  Some will be posted while in transition :-)

Please stop by Monday for my first trick up my sleeve.  You won't want to miss it!
