Fab not Drab Friday

As happy as I am to have it be Friday I just have to wonder…where the heck do the weeks go? I swear to you, Monday was just yesterday! Maybe someone knocked me out for a few days…it would explain the lack of cleaning my house.
Who is ready for another party? No better way to end the week right? I have a BIGE smile on my face because 22 link ups is so much better than 6. Thanks for not making me pout again this week. Every single post linked up is full of awesome inspiration and we love that you are so willing to share it with us!

Choosing features are such a hard task but it’s one we absolutely love! This week the Fab not Drab Feature Fridays prize (okay so it’s JUST a button, sorry gals) goes to…
Barbara from Chase The Star and Kelli from Bella’s Crafty Mom
Talk about the good kick in the scaredy cat rear! If you are as nervous about painting fabric as I am, Kelli’s painted chair is just the inspiration that we need. It looks FABULOUS! It’s hard to believe that it’s actually painted. I love the bright bold color choice and who doesn’t love the color combo of pink and black besides the 1 RANDOM guy who stumbled across this post thinking…this woman is NUTS! Fantastic job Kelli! It turned out beautiful!PICT0088 Now I’m not sure how Barbara knew my soft spot for the song “You Are My Sunshine” but I love that song. I so badly wanted to jump on the grey, white, and yellow décor bandwagon but I didn’t…sad day, I know! Regardless, I NEED these signs in my house. They wouldn’t clash to much with my Asian themed office would they? I don’t think I’ve shared this yet but I lived in China and taught English for a semester after high school…no smart remarks about lack of spelling or grammar skills please, leave them to my mother. I loved my kids and this was my song to them. That experience is also the inspiration behind my “China Room” I just love love LOVE what Barbara did with her thrifted plates that she found. They are so unique and beautiful!
Feel free to claim your prize in the form of a button and a virtual pat on the back. You girls rocked it!
Onto a new party! Share the party with your friends and don’t be afraid to flaunt your awesomeness… link up a 2-3 of your projects!

  1. I don't see anywhere to add a link. I could be missing it though :)

  2. How about we just pretend that never happened and instead of saying I forgot to add it, we will say it was due to technical difficulties...okay FINE! I forgot it AND then had technical difficulties. So Sorry about that! Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
