How to Make the Perfect Bow

I don’t know about you, but it takes me a long time to decorate my house for the Christmas season.  

I can’t just put everything in the same place as the year before.  Well, yes, I do put a few things in the same spots, but I always change things up a little. It’s what makes it fun to me!  Besides, who can remember each year where something went? Not me! 

This year I seem to be changing things up more than usual.  I’m fluffing and adjusting things trying to figure out how I want everything to look.

As a result, I am adding a lot of ribbon and making several bows.  I love how festive all the ribbon makes everything look.  It’s a simple way to add a little flair inexpensively.


Friends and readers often ask me how I make my bows so I thought today would be the perfect time to share a quick video tutorial with you: (more…)

Share it One More Time Inspiration Party #50

Good morning, friends!  Last week I told you how I was contemplating when to start with my fall decorating.  Given the fact that the weather has been hot and humid, it hasn’t exactly sparked that “fall feeling,” nonetheless, I was inspired to get going indoors after I found a few cute goodies to add to my fall collection.

You can go to my Instagram account to get a small sneak peak at fall decor. 

Until then, it’s time to do our regular Saturday thing — it’s time for another Share it One More Time Inspiration party!  Welcome!


Hi everyone!  It’s Barb with The Everyday Home.

Fifty!  Five-Oh!  Can you believe we are celebrating our 50th Party already?  The time has really passed quickly, and we have seen hundreds and hundreds of amazing DIY’s, Crafts and Recipes and so much more.  And we thank each of you so much for being a part of this weekly Link Party and helping it grow.  We realize there are lots and lots of Link Parties to choose, and we cannot say thank-you enough for choosing our Share It One More Time Inspiration Party.  I am very sad to say we will be saying good-bye to three of our co-hosts. (insert sad face)  Janet with Shabbyfufu, Lory with Designthusiasm and Julie with Lilacs and Longhorns have decided to move on to other projects. Tammy and I will miss them, and we wish them all the best of luck.  But, the party will go on and we look forward to your future shares. 

Now let’s get on with the Party, shall we?  (more…)

Share it One More Time Inspiration Party #46

Happy Saturday, friends!

Today, we are wrapping up a vacation with my family for our last hurrah of summer. I can hardly believe that school starts for my kids next week. Hosting this party every week makes me realize how quickly time flies and how each week goes by in the blink of an eye.

Because we have been traveling quite a bit this summer, I haven’t been sharing much new stuff, but once the kids are back in school, I hope to be bringing you more projects and decor.

In the meantime, I hope you all enjoy this week’s link party — we still get so many inspiring projects, home decor, crafts and recipes. Please browse and link up!


Welcome to Share It One More Time inspiration party, the Saturday morning link party where many of our favorite DIYers and decor stylists link up their latest design projects to inspire you. You’ll also find links to the co-hosts recent posts below. Enjoy!

Share it One More Time Link Party #44

Happy Saturday, friends!  Can you believe that the beginning of August is just around the corner?!  Time just keeps passing by and I am just not ready to start thinking about summer coming to an end.  Yes, the Texas heat is getting on my nerves but I cannot even think about sending my kids back to school.  Can I just keep them home a little longer?

Enough about that…let’s get to the reason why you’re here this Saturday — it’s time for another Share it One More Time Inspiration Party! 

We continue to get a lot of inspiring link-ups so you don’t want to miss!  Now, let’s get started:

Hi everyone – it’s Barb with The Everyday Home

Here in Eastern NC, we are sweltering in this heat wave, but inside I am

canning and preserving the last of our garden’s bounty such as my

Homemade Roasted Garlic Pesto.  I promise it’s one of the best pesto

recipes you will ever make.  I can’t wait to see all of the fabulous projects

and recipes you are sharing this week – so let’s get started!

Share it One More Time Inspiration Party #41


Happy Saturday, friends!  

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer!  

I have been trying very hard to spend mine with my kids — while also trying to juggle multiple other things.  I promise, I will spend some time soon updating you on projects that have been going on in and around my house as well as new things happening in my small business that stems from this blog.  

It has been so busy, crazy and at times more than I can handle, but I do have some projects that I am excited to share.  But, honestly, I am putting my family first this summer.  My son is entering high school in the fall and it has hit me hard that our days/years with him  wanting to do family activities is getting limited.  Time is so precious!

On that note, let’s get started with the reason you are here today– it’s time for our weekly inspiration party!


Welcome back to the Share It One More Time Inspiration Party. The party starts on Saturday morning and links can be added through Tuesday and the party goes on all week long! If you are new here, many of our favorite DIY, foodie and decor bloggers link up their latest design projects to inspire you. You’ll also find links to the co-hosts recent posts below. I’d love to have you visit me and all of our hosts during the week for more of what we have to share, but for today…let’s get started with our weekly picks and link ups!
