Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend! I took Emmy and her friend to get manis and out to lunch for Emmy’s birthday (we did this in lieu of a party). The girls had a great time! After that it was off to Sawyer’s basketball game, followed by a National Pie Day party at the neighbor’s house. This year the party had an “olympic” theme. I am doing whole30, so I brought a crustless spinach quiche and called it a “protein power pie.” Chris created a pizza pie that looked like an ice hockey rink. There were some amazing creations such as “Ski Lime Pie”, “White Russian Pie”, and the crowd favorite, mini apple pies that were made into “Pie Medals”. I am also proud to say that Chris and I came home with a brand new pie plate because we rocked the pie facts quiz! (My neighbors host this party annually and I remembered the quiz from last year, so I may have looked up some pie facts before we went. 😉 ). Sunday I spent all day with my Sweet Clover crew on what we are calling “vendor development workshops.” Eddie of Jalapeno Photography and Oxido gave great photography pointers, and Celeste of Catfish Studios taught us all some amazing things to do with paint! We look forward to doing more of these with our vendors!
Anyhow, today I wanted to let you know about a challenge I am partaking in….
I am joining forces with these amazing bloggers….
We will all be tackling a BOLD project! This challenge is the brainchild of Carrie of Lovely, Etc, who explains it like this:
You can see we have a window to either side of the fireplace. On the right we have made do with a little dresser there to hold our cable box, etc. But what we have wanted to put in place….. built ins! At first I wanted white, clean, lovely classic built ins. However, as the room has evolved, I have decided that industrial pipe built ins are going to be perfect! Here are some from around the web that have inspired me….
Kristen of KFD Designs explains really well how she built hers.
And I think we have all seen and pinned Roeshel’s version!
I think with the newly painted fireplace and the more relaxed bohemian look I am going for these shelves will look great and suit our needs as well! Wish us luck!
And guess what? WE are challenging YOU to tackle a bold project as well! Get out there and do something bold, then come back to any one of the participating 11 blogs to link up your project on February 24! See you and your big bold bad self then!
