Hello, there!
I hope everyone is having a good week.

Mine has been so busy that I didn't even get to do a post this week, just barely enough time to host my weekly party, which I enjoy so much every week! Thank you all for your continued support!
And I apologize for my lack of posting.

It is hard to believe is already June and sometimes I feel like the months are going by so fast, we don't really have accomplished much when it comes to our home upgrade goals, so I thought it would be fun to take a look back at everything we have done in our home so far this year.

After the holidays, I started the year trying to organize our home and give each room a really deep cleaning.
I did start with all the bedrooms and closets and gave the master bathroom a little bit of a new look.

Our front porch was so empty after we took the Christmas decor down, I decided to dress it up a little bit for Winter.

I also worked on our kitchen.
I made a new burlap runner for the island and changed the vignette.

And spent many hours cleaning and organizing our pantry.
Wow! That was a lot of work!

I sanded and repainted a small cabinet we had for many years and used it to add more storage space in our laundry room. The small baskets have proved to be very handy!

We changed the look of our hallway niche by installing tile and glass shelves.

Gave my storage closet a very needed cleaning and organized all my pillows and decor items.

Made a few wreaths and pillows.
Like I needed more, right? :)

And then the construction of my craft room started.
We worked on this room for many weeks, since everything in it was homemade and every decor item re-purposed.

And while this was happening, I decorated the kitchen and front porch for Spring and gave the back porch a good cleaning after the winter months.

And, in between all these chores, I made a few crafts.

Now, the rest of the year, we will be concentrating on finishing all the upgrades to my husband's workshop and building the outdoor space we always wanted in our backyard. It is going to take a while, since we "insist" on doing everything ourselves, LOL, but that is the whole fun!

I will be back with the features from this weeks party.
What a great turnout we had. You all are the best!

See you soon!
