Motivational Monday: January 11th

This was a busy week for this little blog of mine! I decided on a whim to change my blog's name. There were a few kinks at first, but now that they have all been worked out, you shouldn't see much change except for the name at the top of this page. To help me complete my goal of saving more money in 2015, I shared my 52 Week Money Saving Challenge that gets easier as you go! And on Friday, things got a little personal when I shared my Crocheted Christmas Story.

Before we get started with this party, I would like to welcome Bethany from Southern Couture as the newest host of the Motivational Monday Party! She has done some wonderful DIY projects in the past and I am so happy she has decided to join us!


Make sure to visit these other 7 wonderful ladies and show them some love!

Ready to share what motivates you? Link up a recent post of yours, something that motivates you to create or just be awesome! Our goal is for this link up to focus on craft, DIY, & home posts so please try to remember that when linking up. 

  • Limit it to three links per week and remember to link directly to your post, not your blog.
  • Do not link stores, giveaways, or other link parties. 
  • Be sure to hop around some of the other posts that have been linked up to share the love and get motivated by what others have been up to…because of course, this is Motivational Monday after all.
Each week, your hosts will choose a few posts to feature from the previous week. If you want a chance at being featured, you must follow all of the hosts. By linking up, you agree to let each host share your photo and link back to your site. Link party goes live Sunday at 6pm PST and ends Thursday at 5pm PST.

Feel free to grab a Motivational Monday button in the sidebar to put on your own blog if you want to help spread the love! 

Bre from Average But Inspired shared how she Upcycled Christmas Cards Into Winter Bunting. This is such a great idea, because otherwise, what do you do with all those cards?

This Wood Arrow Jewelry Organizer was created by Katie from Little House of Four and is simply adorable! This is the perfect way to store all of your jewelry, and I love how she added two other arrows just for fun. 

Don't forget to grab our button if you've been featured!


It's time for you to link up your recent craft, DIY, or home decor posts. Make sure to check out other's projects as well for some motivation.

Have a great week!
