The Better Half – DIY Share Party #11

May 11, 2012 | by Kim (email) |

Welcome to OPC: The Better Half’s Weekend Link-up Party, a place where you can brag a little (or a lot!) about some of the projects you’ve completed recently.  We love getting ideas and just admiring the hard work many of you all put into your homes, like we do.  So please link up!  Share what you’ve been working on lately!

This weekend’s party opens late Thursday night and closes Monday morning, so if you have a great Saturday project planned, please come back and show us what you’ve got!



My Own Small “Share,” to Start Us Off!

While Jocie’s all over the crafting and decor, my own favorite beautification hobby is gardening; and I’ve been working very hard outside for the past several weeks, getting everything planted, weeded, mulched and established before Fred and the boys and I head off for a 2 week vacation.  And yesterday, I got my first pay-off of the season: enough bright blooms to make a small bouquet for the corner of my cooktop.  Just a little thing, but it makes me smile every time I’m meal-planning!

I did say it was a little thing, right?  Ok, now it’s YOUR turn!

    Great idea, but the only thing I’ve done lately is make a maid of honor bouquet, corsages and boutonnieres for our daughter’s upcoming wedding.
    I thought I’d stop by and wish you, Jocie and all the other Mom’s here at One Project Closer a very happy Mother’s day though.

    • Jocie says:

      Thanks, you too! Planning a wedding is a great Mother’s Day activity! I LOVE weddings. 🙂

      • JustME says:

        Thank Jocie. It’s been ups and downs. Not always fun like I thought it would be. Mine was stress free. Our daughters? Not so much.

  3. I’m sorry to not have been partying here with you for a few weeks. I need to get my act together, I guess! 😉 Just stopping by and saying hello… And still loving my tiles and trying to think of a project to share with others.

      We’ve missed you! But it seems everyone has been similarly busy the last few weeks – yea, spring and warmer weather!

    • Jocie says:

      HELLO! We’ve missed you at the link parties for sure and can’t wait to have you back. We are also trying to get our act together and really amp up the link parties! 🙂
