Come get Inspired: Creations by 100 Bloggers!

Recently I shared how I was invited by Hometalk to help host a Pinterest-inspired project party at my local Michaels craft store.  Seriously? Did they even have to ask? YES!! If you missed it, you can see that post here.

Several bloggers are in on the action and we were challenged to take one of their Pinterest-inspired projects and make it our own.  Here is a reminder of what I created from their birdcage project:

Sweet Arrangement using a Birdcage as a Planter!

I shared the complete how-to at the link above and I will also be demonstrating it again at the party…

Come out and see me and several other Hometalk bloggers during the event on February 16th at Michaels stores from 1-4 pm across the U.S. and Canada!

If you live anywhere near Virginia Beach, VA,  I will be at the Michaels in Redmill Commons Shopping Center on Nimmo Parkway!  I would LOVE it if you would come by and say hello and hang out with us!  My awesome bloggy buddy, Nancy from Artsy Chicks Rule, will be at the Michaels in Newport News, VA! Visit to see if your favorite Hometalk blogger will be at a Michaels  store near you for the event!

Don’t forget this part!

Now for the inspiration part… today I get to share everyone’s projects!

Here is a reminder of what we had to choose from:

Michaels ProjectsWe could make ours the same, but we were really encouraged to have fun with these projects!

I love seeing how creative people can be!

Here’s what everybody came up with. Warning: This  might make you want to get in your car right now and drive to Michaels!

  1. My head is spinning. How do you do all your “stuff” and still keep up with the blog, facebook, pinterest, and hometalk? I’m probably leaving something out…twitter??

    I’m so jealous you and Nancy live close to each other. Do you get together? 2 of my favoritist bloggers so close!!!


    • It’s a good thing I don’t have a real job or I would never be able to keep up! LOL!! Nancy only lives 40 minutes from me and can you believe we’ve never met in person? We keep saying we need to! I wish you were closer…you are one of the few bloggers that I read every single post!! XO XO
