    For somebody that says she’s not a DIY’er you sure manage to do alot of great diy projects and planning/setting up parties. I’d be a nervous wreck and my house would never look good enuf to me to have people over. You are to be applauded for your talents. We all have our own things we’re good at and it looks like you have alot of talents. Have a good week. I love your blog.

  10. Hi Melissa! I am so happy you shared this. It’s resonated with a lot of people and I’ve been overjoyed to see it featured on wonderful blogs that I might not have found otherwise. Thank you again! – Lauren
