Happy Weekend!

It's Friday and time for me to wish you well and thank you for joining me this week on decor8. It's nearly 2:30 p.m. here and I try to sign off midday on Fridays each week in a quest to become more balanced -- plus the weather is gorgeous and will be this way until Monday so I hope to get a lot done including another trip out to IKEA, a visit to the flea market, and my friend is having a shopping event on her street with other indie sellers so I plan to visit that too. AND I need to get my hair cut, it's a giant monster and my morning bed head is so extreme that if I glued google eyes on it you'd think it was alive!


I hope that you've enjoyed all of my posts this week as I was quite the writer pouring out my little heart for all to hear. But I felt social and chatty and so thank you for listening and for discussing so many interesting topics along with me because a conversation isn't a conversation without another person involved. Only crazy ladies talk to themselves and while I've been know to do that too, I certainly do not want to blog without any participation from you so thanks for making my week so much more interesting to me. And I love that you aren't lumps sitting there scrolling and moving on to the next blog, you really get involved and even start conversations with others within the comments section which I think is really cool. I read everyones comments and enjoy them all immensely. I received a number of private emails this week and many expressed to me how some of your comments really changed their outlook and mood -- one lady even went on to tell me that she was feeling like giving up and just pulling the plug on her blog and etsy shop until she read the comments on one of my posts -- so I appreciate you so very much!

I will see you on Monday -- Leslie has her Color Me Pretty column prepared and it will go live on Monday and I know you will love it. We've been working on color themes together but for those who have asked, all of her work is hers alone and I did nothing but assist with color themes. She takes the lead and does quite a lovely job. Also next week I will also post some special discount offers from decor8 sponsors in a series of 3 posts throughout the next week or two. Each post will give you the name of the shop, the promotional offer, and the link and shopping code so stick around. I'll also pull in some non-sponsors too so stay tuned for that!

UPDATE: I almost forgot, I have a fun yarn DIY coming up soon too -- not sure if it will be ready next week or the following but stay tuned. It's from one of my favorite craft goddesses and I'm sure, yours too. :)
