.:Market Yourself Monday–Painted Chain Necklace:.


What a crazy, busy, amazing, fun few days I just wrapped up. I was so fortunate to be able to attend SNAP – with Miss H in tow (sorry if her fussing ruined any of your classes!) – and had the best time! I’ll save it for a wrap up post, but just let me say that it was my first conference, and I can totally see why people do them. It’s so amazing to be around that many people that just get you. I saw some old friends, made some new friends, and just really thoroughly enjoyed myself.

But anyway, I will talk about that more in another post.

It’s time to get the ball rolling for Market Yourself Monday! This week I’m sharing this painted chain necklace. It’s another Target knock off (yes, I realize that my love of Target borders on obsession) and it’s super easy to make. I’ll show you how tomorrow.


And before we start the party, I wanted to share some pictures of my girls in their Easter outfits. It’s partly me showing off my beautiful children, but also partly because people have been requesting to see!

Here’s my three year old:

And my two year old:

And my five month old:


Sorry, no tutorial; made that one up – super easy!

I think we have done a nice job creating beautiful children, don’t you?


Anyway, let’s get to the party!

The most viewed link from last week is:

I’m going to try reeeeeeeeaaaaalllly hard to get back to a somewhat normal posting schedule, which includes Showcase Saturday. No more excuses, my baby is almost six months old! Time to get a handle on my life, right?

Get your link on!
