Happy Hour Party #10!

Hi Friends! It’s that time again… time for HAPPY HOUR! Are you running around crazy trying to get ready for Thanksgiving too? My hubby and I decided to take a spontaneous trip to Vegas (WOO HOO) and we leave on Monday and get back just in time for Thanksgiving. Which means, the next few days are going to be crazy! I’m SO excited though. We have never been to Vegas together and this our first real (as in on an airplane) trip together since Miss E was born. And can I tell you how excited I am to ride the New York, New York roller coaster?!

And speaking on Thanksgiving, we will not be having HAPPY HOUR next week due to the Holiday. So spend some extra time with your family and friends and eat lots of delicious food :)

In case you missed last week’s features, you can view them all here!

Anyway… let’s get onto the fun stuff.

Happy Hour Link Party

Here is a peek at what’s been going on with Jaime, Lucy and I this week:

This week I shared my one and only Thanksgiving project, a Give Thanks Pillow made from drop cloth. I also made another fun Christmas project, a Luminary Advent Calendar out of recycled baby food jars. I cannot wait to start lighting them in the evenings! I love candles in the winter, makes the house feel so cozy. Remember my Family Room Reveal? Well, I finally shared my last tutorial from that space, a Vintage-Inspired Mail Organizer. And lastly, this season is ALL about giveaways. Right now you can enter to Win a 11X14 Photo Canvas, it would make a fabulous Christmas gift!

Lucy had SUCH an amazing week this week! Lucy’s Fall Mantel was chosen as the winner of the FOLK Magazine Fall Link Party and she was asked to be a guest contributor this week. Check out her post and you can even link up your own Christmas Projects to their newest party going on right now too. And Lucy is definitely getting into the holiday spirit, this week she shared her Music Sheet Ornaments, Faux Grain Sack Stars and Sugar-Free Sugar Cookies!

    So excited for you to get away on a grown up trip although I have to admit I’m a teeny bit jealous. At this stage however, I would probably go to Vegas and fall asleep for the entire trip….lol. Thanks so much for hosting the link party. Have a great trip!
