blogging and butterflies

Here is my latest design inspiration (from TJ Maxx) for an upcoming project AFTER finals:

How darling! And truth be told...I think I can make it even better! I can not WAIT for Spring Break!!! I am oozing with project and ideas. :)

Speaking of school...I should be studying, but I wanted to share with you about my delightful adventure to Indy.

This Saturday was BEYOND pleasant! Sarah from Thrifty Decor Chick & Beckie from Infarrantly Creative hosted a wonderful gathering for Indiana bloggers: a Goodwill Shop & Hop. Not only was it a WONDERFUL excuse to not study this Saturday, but it was ever so inspiring to meet other lovely ladies who delight in treasure hunting. I was actually nervous about going. Had a few butterflies myself....but oh what a wonderful day it was!
I just want to thank these ladies for their hospitality, inspiration, and friendship. I would also like to thank Goodwill for the gift card! I won a gift card in a drawing that allowed me to purchase all my finds (no worries..I will reveal to you next week the BEFOREs as well as the AFTERs).

I also plan to indulge in my glorious gift bag and share with you all my loot. I have a few projects in mind that will be perfect. :)

So many projects..and only 2 weeks! Get ready for a whirlwind of fun.

Cheers~

  6. Where did you Indiana girls get together? I live in Illinois now, but I will always be a Hoosier at heart. My daughter lives in Lexington, Ky so I still get to come on through. xo Joan@anythinggoeshere

  8. You are the sweetest thing...and I'm so thankful for this crazy little secret blogging world where we found each other...and no you are not a stalker! I've spent the day on my couch fighting a nasty cold and fever. Thanks for brightening my day while quarantined from the rest of my house! Those butterflies are precious. I need to show them to sofi in the morning... She is a huge fan of butterflies. Can't wait to see how they have inspired you!

  13. Fun!! I wanted to go, not quite close enough though, boo! Also, my hubs is from Shepherdsville KY, so I have to give a shout out to someone near his neck of the woods. :)

    Also, thanks for your sweet comments about my wreath!! I couldn't believe how well it turned out, I think it was mostly luck. Shhhh, it'll be our little secret :)

    Have a great week!
