Getting Creative at Home Blog Tour: My favorite Project

Hello all!

In case you haven't been following along, all week long we have been highlighting 24 bloggers who weren't so lucky as to be able to attend the awesome Haven Blog Conference last week.  We decided to throw ourselves a party here at home instead! Today is MY turn! It's also the turn of the other fabulous four bloggers listed below! Make sure you check out each and every one of them! 

Thursday, Aug. 8:

Now onto my favorite projects!
My most-pinned-to-date-post is my Minnie Mouse Cake Topper Tutorial that was part of "Minnie Week", for my daughter's Minnie Mouse Party. You can view that post as well as all the other party posts and details here.

My Nautical String Art tutorial is my personal favorite, as well as the number two viewed post on my blog! My boys love it even more than I do!  It was a part of my boys' room redo (which I'm still working on) along with all of these posts.

Another favorite of mine would have to be my son's Chalkboard Top Desk redo.  I found this sweet vintage piece curbside and decided it would be perfect for my Aspieboy.  He LOVES it and draws on it daily.

Last, but certainly not least, is my daughter's Vanity redo.  I know for a FACT that she is my child because for her 5th birthday, instead of asking for a toy, she asked for a vintage vanity for her room!  The piece was a steal at $75 and the paint was free.  Better yet, she can enjoy this gift for years to come!  Isn't it LOVELY?!

I hope you enjoyed visiting me today!  Please don't forget to visit all the other blogs being highlighted today, and make sure you follow me on Facebook, Twitter and other social media by clicking on the buttons below! I always try to follow back!
