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…)

You’re probably asking yourself lots of questions:  Didn’t she post this earlier this year?  Haven’t we already seen this?  Didn’t she already do a bathroom makeover in a farmhouse style?  

Yes, yes and no. (more…)


Simple Fall Decorating {Fall in Love with Texas Blog Tour}

You can barely tell it’s fall here in Texas because the heat made it’s way back here this week. (Insert sad face emoji and maybe even a few tears!)

Even so, there’s no stopping my fellow Texas bloggers and me from ushering in the season — even when Mother Nature refuses to cooperate.

Today, I’m so happy to be joining a group of talented Texas women who are sharing their fall decor with you!  I want to extend a special thank you to Katie at Let’s Add Sprinkles who wrangled all of us together and organized this fun fall tour!

Share it One More Time Inspiration Party #51

Happy Saturday, friends!  I am so happy it’s the weekend — things are busy, busy, busy with the school year now in full swing and the hub of all the activities in which my kids are active.  Life is hectic around here and sometimes I don’t know if I’m coming or going.

And, as a result, I’ve made the difficult decision to step down from co-hosting this weekly link party.  It has truly been an honor to be a part of this inspiration party — to get to know more of you talented bloggers who link up each week and to partner with this caring and creative Share it One More Time team.  

Going forward, I will post a link on my sidebar to Tammy and Barb’s blogs as they continue to co-host this party so if you forget and come here in error, you can easily click over to One More Time Events or The Everyday Home to link up your projects/decor/recipes.  

Thank you so much for coming here every Saturday — I have truly enjoyed being a part of this group!

Now — let’s get started on this week’s party!

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…)
