The Art of the Surprise Note by The Thinking Closet

Guest posts are kind of like playdates, aren’t they?  You get to go over the house of your fun new friend for an afternoon, share your stories, meet their family and friends, and return home a renewed gal…(and probably wanting a new toy). Well, today I get to have a “playdate” over at Jessica and Linz’s blog, Sweet Athena.  If you don’t know Sweet Athena, you should.  Part of what I love about that blog {read more…}

Room Tour from the Sister of The Thinking Closet

DIY Wrapping Paper Tutorial via The Thinking Closet

Today, I am taking part in the guest posting extravaganza over at Sugar Bee Crafts, sharing my D.I.Y. Wrapping Paper Tutorial. (I know it may seem like I’m going guest-post-crazy, but for those who don’t know, sometimes you write guest posts several weeks before they “go live,” so let me clarify that I am not superwoman doing all of these projects in just a few days.  Such feats of crafty strength would be pretty incredible, though.) {read more…}

My First Guest Post!

10 Ways to Go Green with Christmas Cards via The Thinking Closet

Today is an exciting day because my first {ever} guest post goes live over at the blog, Blissful and Domestic.

The inspiration for this post stems from a new tradition that my husband and I started two years ago: we send our Christmas newsletter to family and friends via email instead of snail mail.  However, {read more…}
