Here we are once again - Monday Funday time! (ok, it really starts at 7:00 EST on Sunday, but you get the point!).

I don't know about you, but I am done in from projects this weekend. We painted the office (finally have that project moving!). If anyone tries to tell you that painting is quick and easy - they are liars. And do not also tell yourself the lie that white is an easy color to paint. It might be the hardest color I have ever worked with and we were only covering beige!

But, all that said I am super glad we did and I love the room so much more already!

If you want to follow along with the office / craft room makeover, follow along on Instagram (LPatFindingHome) and Facebook for lots of sneak peeks!

And don't forget to link up your great projects!

Monday Funday Header - Draft

Welcome to Monday Funday!

Every Monday you can link up your crafts / DIY Ideas / recipes to not just one, but FIVE SIX awesome blogs:

C.R.A.F.T. // Lines Across // Uncommon Designs // That’s What Che Said // Creatively Living //

& our newest co-host:

Finding Home

That’s right, SIX instead of 5 blogs! Here’s the deal, we decided it would be FUN to add a 6th rotating hostess to the Monday Funday crew! That’s 6x the exposure! So, ONE crafty link party extravaganza will happen on SIX blogs. Plus, each week one of us will choose projects to feature on all six blogs.

We will also be sharing links throughout the week on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. You can follow the Monday Funday party tweets at #MondayFundayParty !

It’s my week this week to pick features! Can I just say that you are all pure awesomesauce in my book! Oh-my-goodness are you all talented! I am so inspired by you all and I know I can say that we all are so excited that you join us week after week! I’m sending you all high fives and knuckle bumps! Oh who am I kidding…I’m sending you all hugs! I am a hugger! On to the features I had the honor of putting together! Some super fabulous desserts that you will NOT want to miss!
