Pinned it, Made it! Monday ~ Week 65 ~

Hi there!  Remember me?  :)  I've been a very bad blogger and absent from blogland for awhile, but I've missed blogging and all my blogging friends! :)

I've had a really hard time balancing everything lately.  First the holidays, then Joy was in the hospital again right after Christmas.  But we were home in time to see the New Year in at home (getting home around 5:00 on New Years Eve.  Then Jason, Luke, Joy, and I all had strep throat. It seems like it's taken awhile to recover completely.  I really want to get back into the swing of blogging again though!


Anyway, I'm going ahead with Pinned it, Made it Monday this evening in the hopes someone may have something to link.

This week, I want to share the Pinterest-inspired gift that Joy gave me for Christmas.  It's a grater turned earring holder.  I love it!  And it works beautifully.  I use it to hold the earrings I wear most often.  Just give it a coat of paint and that's it!  :)



Oh, and she gave me the sweetest note to go along with it!  That made my gift all the more special!  :)



Have you tried something or made something that was Pinterest-inspired?  We'd love to see! Just link your project below!  :)

************************

I have really missed sharing family photos with you, so I want to come back with some of those in the next day or two.  And I really have missed joining Joy on her Faithful Friday posts, so I want to try to make those a priority......beginning this Friday!  :)

Oh, and one more thing....I'm trying to decide whether to continue with Pinned it, Made it Mondays.  Is it something you enjoy?  If so, I will continue.  :)  If not, then I will just put my time and energy into regular family, home, and decorating blogging.   I'd love to hear your thoughts on your favorite thing here!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week!  :)

♥ Tammy ♥

what a lovely gift (esp the note) from your daughter!

I've missed your posts. I love your blog and all the elements you have to it including the Pinned It Made It. So much so that I started a Pinned It Made It on Mondays on my blog.

I love to see what others post here. Mine on my blog is just for me to keep making things I actually post. LOL

So good to see you back. I tried to e-mail you and it wouldn't go. I was afraid Joy was sick, prayers for that little girl.

What a neat idea!! Love this, and the cute touch of the twine bow at the top, goes so nicely with the color. It is such a heartfelt, sweet gift :)

Glad you're back. We all had the coughing and hacking but I was the only one to get bronchitis. I finally posted last week. I hadn't posted since Thanksgiving. I hope to be back for Pinned It,Made It soon. Still need to figure out why I can't get Picasa to load on this computer.

This is an adorable and very useful gift. Joy, that was a sweet, heartfelt note!
I am not very crafty but I do enjoy seeing things that others share! Mildred
