Before I turn it over to Diane & Dean, I wanted to make sure you guys all had a chance to blog hop through all of our 10 Minute Christmas Ideas. Everyone did such a great job showcasing their talents and how easy you can be on yourself when trying to be all crafty for Christmas.

Here’s what I came up with and I’m completely in love with them!


If you try this or any of the 10 Minute Christmas Ideas, will you share them with me?! You can post them on Facebook. Be sure to tag me! I’m on Facebook as letsgetcrafty2.

linky party dianeanddeanHey everyone! It’s Diane from Diane & Dean DIY (the hubs is out of town this week) and I am hosting the Your Inspired Design’s party this week. I hope you have had a wonderful week so far. I can’t believe that next week is Thanksgiving. Holy cow! How in the world did that sneak up on us? Dean and I are hosting Thanksgiving again at our house this year and although our crowd seems to get a little smaller year to year with the kids all over the place, we still look forward to getting together with everyone and catching up. We will be missing those that can’t be with us but we are so thankful for face time. At least the top three competitors for our annual ping pong tournament will all be here so…Get Ready, Big Bro…Game On, Son! Who won last year? Oh yeah, ME.

Thank you to all of the amazing submissions last week. You blew me away. I am so excited to share the” featured” bloggers. Just a little reminder before the big reveal, don’t forget to follow Carol’s, Kristy’s, Gloria’s, Holly’s, Christine’s and Dean and mine’s social media links at the bottom of the page if you want to keep up with the latest. If you would like weekly DIY Goodness from Diane & Dean DIY just sign up for our newsletter to the right of this post. Alrighty then, let’s move on to our very special features that are spotlighted today.

Shhh..don’t tell anyone but I didn’t decorate our home for the fall season this year. We traveled a lot. That’s my excuse and I am sticking to it. This is one of the reasons I probably selected McKenzie at Messy Haired Mom (love that name) with her beautiful Thanksgiving printables. This counts as decoration, right? I have at least one already to be put in a frame to display. I love the quote too. Click on over to her website to check out the cute cut outs that you can get creative with,too.


With Thanksgiving on our minds, I couldn’t resist not stopping by At Home With Jemma to see how she made this delicious holiday pumpkin roll, a little spin off traditional pumpkin bread.

I was totally inspired by this pallet board mail station by One More Time Events. We got mail, alright. Mail in the office, mail on the entry table and mail on the kitchen counter. I am making this tonight. Okay, I might say that about everything I fall in love with but truth is…I’ll get to it .
