Weekly Blog Shout-Out #2

Welcome to another week of blog shout-outs! I scoured the blogosphere this week to bring you some of my favorite blog posts out there in blog land.

There are so many creative people out there, and they deserve nothing more than to be recognized, so holla’!

Now that I am through being a complete dork, let’s get started.

My first favorite post of the week is from Candy’s Clothes Closet. She spray painted some old frames using Krylon and turned them into bright and fun chalkboard frames. I LOVE these! It makes me want to go do some thrift shopping and make some of my own. Great job!

This next post is just plain genius. Holly from My Sister’s Suitcase created these adorable aprons from a shopping bag. I mean, wow. What a great idea! I am going to be making one for me and my girls soon. So cute!

This last one comes from Easy Peasy Grandma. She created a Chevron back splash in her kitchen using vinyl! I absolutely adore the Chevron design, and this just adds so much personality to her already super-cute kitchen. If you’re looking for a frugal way to update your kitchen, this is the way to do it. Awesome!

Whelp, this concludes my blog shout out for this week. If you’ve been featured, feel free to grab one of my buttons found in my side bar. If you love these posts as much as I do, check out these blogs and leave some love. I know it feels great to have someone comment on my blog and I am sure they would appreciate it too.

Have a fantabulous week!
