I think I am in shock!!!

I was doing my morning routine. I published a few comments to my blog, and noticed that I had a bunch of new followers, and comments on things I hadn't linked up recently, and I didn't know why. Then, I started checking the updates from blogs I like, and went to:

The story was entitled: Boy Bedroom Ideas

I was interested to see, and clicked on the link...

I saw my dishtowels, and was confused for a second, then kept reading and scrolling through. She featured a ton of my stuff from my blog! I was in shock!

Today's Creative Blog is literally the first creative blog I ever saw, years ago, and like, The Blog of Creative Blogs! I NEVER imagined I would be featured, and not to the extent I was!!! I feel SO HONORED! Seriously... you made my day! I have butterflies in my stomach!!!

Thank you Kim! You're the best!!!

This is her post about me <3 class="post-title entry-title"> Boy Bedroom ideas!
All comments for the month of May will be entered to win a Lisa Leonard Necklace. The more comments you leave, the better your chances.image
Using what you can find! I love a resourceful woman. Things are always more interesting to look at when you’ve created it. My featured blogger today loves to rummage through her local DI….that’s the LDS Goodwill.
You can make some good stuff with scraps……she found a bag of material scraps and a bag of lace. image Didn’t take her long to whip up a couple of cute towels. The birds are killin me. So cute.
Restlessrisa She’s a fairly new blogger, but don’t let that fool you. She has all kinds of things to make you swoon.image
Would would look at two old pillow cases and think “ Hmmmm, I could make a purse with those”. Well at least I know I don’t think that. image Decorating boy rooms are so difficult. Not a lot of themes out there. I love her Outer Space room she did. imageShe even made his head board. Looks great and I bet it cost a whole lot less than buying a real head board. Looks better too.image She recently re-did her laundry room. I mean if we need to do laundry, it needs to be in a cute room…….right? Who could possibly match socks in the BEFORE?image Now your talking! I bet her productivity shot up to 0% socks lost. Don’t we love the lime green?image Lovely spring wreath! A monogram wreath….we love monograms. imageParties are in the air. She has some cute ideas too. I thought you would like this pink marshmallow one. image She used different utensils to add some white chocolate to them. Added sprinkles……imageLet them dry…..imageAdded some tulle and now they look like roses…….roses you can eat!imageI loved this cute idea below…..a burlap runner that she embellished with ruffles. You should see those plates. Really really cute. I’m sure my friend Valerie will have a fit looking for them now. She’ll have to find a set for sure.image Just a table she did for a church event. Just….
Using scrapbook paper for her placemats……seriously. Never underestimate scrapbook paper.imageAnd if you think she’s all that……she’s not too proud to use a hot wheels organizer for her jewelry. I’m waiting for her to embellish it.image image
You guys have been great with surprising my featured bloggers! Keep it up. Head on over and tell her she’s been featured…….I’ll let you tell her.

That post got 46 nice comments! (Boy do I feel great!!!)
