Tickled Pink No. 21

Welcome to Tickled Pink No. 21!
Alright Tickled Pink is legal now!
Forgive any craziness that may appear...
I am still delirious for lack of sleep!
504 Main
What does it mean to be Tickled Pink?
"The tickling pink concept is of enjoyment great enough
to make the recipient glow with pleasure ."
-The Phrase  Finder
*************************
I am Tickled Pink because...
My baby girl started preschool this week
and she was jubilant, radiant...just Tickled Pink to be there!
My big boy is just sweet!
Although if they would both just go to bed easier I would be really tickled pink!
************* 
I got my galley's from my last book - it comes out in December!
I finished my new book!
I finished a TON of projects for the DIY Club!
OK, so there will be a ton of DIY posts next week,
but real writing and other stuff is coming.
{pssst...the new DIY Club party starts NOW!}
And we had a few more days of SUN -
Nothing like some rays to improve your mood! 
************************* 
Tickled Pink No. 21!

*************************
is just how I like it!
Roberta has been faithfully linking up since the
beginning of Tickled Pink linky's and I just want to say
a HUGE thank you for that!
A Little Bit of Everything offers recipes {I just saw Monkey Bars over there! Yum!}, but she also has needlecrafts, tablescapes, lots of fun baby stuff, and well, a little bit of EVERYTHING!
********* 
Well, you know I love a crafty gal. Look at this fun idea for a wastebasket update!
 ********
Then Roberta shows us this brilliant idea for redoing a stool, that is PERFECT for the bathroom. When I decide on my master bath redo - I am making one of these.
 ********
Now, this idea is genius! If I make these cutlery carriers,
I wonder if my hubby will go on a picnic with me?
******** 
Oh yeah, I am in love with this ribbon holder idea.
I am trying very hard to get my crafts organized. I see this in my future! 
 Aren't these ideas great! Go visit Roberta at A Little Bit of Everything and see all the great everythings she has to offer.

  2. SOO excited about your book! I want more details. Publishing a book has always been a far off dream of mine so you're my new HERO. That is amazing.

    Also loved seeing the features! That vintage flashcard banner is just adorable and I think I want to make one for our study area.

  4. Oh my gosh, Holly, I'm so excited to see that you spotlighted me...that's the first time I have been (as far as I know). You need to make a "I was featured at 504 Main" button so I can add it to my blog!
    Thanks again!
