Transformation Thursday: No. 167

shabby creek cottage

Hey there – Welcome to Transformation Thursday! It’s that one day where we all get together to give each other high fives for getting stuff done. Whether this is your first time, you’ve been here for years, or you’re just tuning in to soak up the blogland awesomeness, I’m so glad you’re here!

Did you hear that? It’s a symphony of school bells ringing and quiet households… that means it’s back to school time. Can you smell the sharpened pencils & Elmer’s glue? Well let’s celebrate with a Back to School edition of TT, m’kay…
Stacey at Real Southern Living shared her smart idea of making ink pens pretty… I do have some Amy Butler scraps that might make some posh pens!
Taryn at Design, Dining & Diapers shared chocolate dipped shortbread cookies, that would be perfect for a lunch box – or for waking mamma up in the morning with her iced coffee (’cause mine’s ALWAYS iced!) Yum, yum, yum!
As for me this week? I’m sharing a giveaway where TWO of you will win a spot in the new e-course Creatively Made Home from my friend Jennifer Rizzo. It’s gonna be awesome, so make sure you stop over and enter!
Now on to your projects!!!
Sooooooo……. whatcha got? I wanna see – and so does everybody else! Please put your PERMALINK into the linky – and link back here so everyone can find all the great ideas. Please, please, PLEASE – pretty please DO NOT LINK TO A SHOP!!! Be sure to visit your neighbors and have fun – it is a party after all. *Please note: If you link up you are giving me permission to use your photos on my blog without contacting you (don’t worry, it’s only to show off your beautiful stuff!)* 

REMEMBER: To be featured on the Facebook page or Transformation Thursday Pinterest Board – you must have the link directly in your post. You can still link up with a link back on your party page or sidebar, but to get featured you must link in the post, m’kay? 

Ready? Set? GOOOOO!!!!

  18. I understand the problems that you and other bloggers are having with scrapes, but I ask you to reconsider the new format with the RSS feeds. I very much enjoy your blog, but will be unable to read it if I must click over to your site every time that I want to read it. Please consider using some of the strategies mentioned here so I, and fellow readers, can continue enjoying your blog.

  28. I understand that you have to protect yourself….sad isn’t it? But I have noticed many crafters are doing this to protect your information.m and I hope everyone of you stand together. I have absoulty no problems clinking on your link. Honestly it is little effort on my part for such wonderful information and idea’s!
    What bothers me is that others feel entitled to take something without working for it. That I will never understand.

  29. Thanks millions for hosting (:

  30. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to
    be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries
    that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without
    having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to
    get more. Thanks
