Share it One More Time Link Party #18

Welcome back to the Share it One More Time Link Party!



It’s my turn to be the featured host this week!

Lilacs & Longhorns

Woo hoo!

I have been feeling unusually crafty lately and have been inspired to make things for Valentine’s Day.

This week, I shared a sweet little Valentine’s Day mail bag that my daughter can bring to school. Click the link above to get the tutorial and to see the adorable Valentine’s we’ll be delivering if you missed my post.

I’m feeling a little sad that this might be the last year she does this.  She’ll be in 6th grade next year and I’m not sure if big sixth graders are still in to exchanging Valentines.  I sure hope so!  It’s so much fun making crafts like this together.

Now, to the reason why you’re here — the link-up!

Valentine’s Day Mail Bag

I don’t usually go so crazy with Valentine’s Day, but this year, I seem to be going all out.

I think it’s because 1) I missed all of the red in my house when the Christmas decorations came down and 2) this may be the last year I have a child who will exchange Valentines cards in school.  My kids are just growing up way too fast for me and I’m trying to hang on to all of the little things as long as I can!

I think exchanging sweet messages with friends is such a fun tradition.  I mean, don’t we all really love to get mail? (Except the grown-up, boring kind!)  

As my daughter gets older she carries more stuff to school. So, this year we decided that lugging a bulky box to school for the Valentine exchange wasn’t practical.  

That’s why a little Valentine’s Day mail bag was the perfect solution.

It will lie flat in her binder before the mail exchange, and then it will be easy to carry home when it’s full! Continue reading

 I can’t believe it’s already January 30 — how did THAT happen?! 

It’s been a whirlwind here — I’ve been so busy cleaning and organizing closets, rooms and drawers.  At the same time, I have been updating my daughter’s room as she nears her 11th birthday.  I will be sharing all of that on the blog soon and I can’t wait for you to see some of the changes!  

In the meantime, last week I teamed up with some blog friends to share some past Valentine’s Day project ideas that are so sweet!  If you missed it, you can go here.


Now, let’s get started with this week’s party and hear from our featured host:

Hi everyone! I’m Janet from Shabbyfufu and I’m thrilled to be co-hosting this week’s edition of the Share It One More Time Link Party!  

This week I shared a couple of posts with flowers (what a shock, I know 😉 and DIY tips on styling them. I purchase flowers weekly at one of several grocery stores that I frequent and always look for what I love that is on sale. I stretch the budget by adding in fresh greenery and splitting up the flowers into a couple of arrangements for different rooms in my home
My philosophy on decorating has been evolving over the years to “less is more” and accenting with florals for a pop. Here is a project that I shared to create a fresh Valentine’s Day Wreath, so check that out for some ideas!

Now, on to the party! Continue reading

 Happy Saturday!  I hope you all are staying warm and dry this weekend!

If you stopped by here earlier this week, you know that I’ve had Valentine’s Day projects on my mind.  I shared a cute mason jar gift idea and my favorite new craft idea, paper flowers made out of muffin cups!

Hello everyone, Tammy here From One More Time Events your co-host for this week’s Share It One More Time party.
My picture update
Like most of you, I have been busy trying to pull my home back together reorganizing, rearranging and redecorating after the holidays. After rearranging the furniture in the family room it left me a large blank wall to decorate. I love how it allowed me to bring in more farmhouse style to our family room.
Now, on to the party and features!
