Summer Spotlight {Crafts By Courtney}

Happy Friday, friends!  We’re still off in Wisconsin enjoying some of the peaceful northwoods (well … as peaceful as five kiddos in a cabin can be), but it’s my favorite day of the week!  It’s time again for our Summer Spotlight feature, and I’m particularly excited about this week’s blogger!!  We’re highlighting Courtney from Crafts by Courtney today.  She is one of my absolute favorites, and I’m thrilled to be able to feature some of her work her today!

DIY Cork Keychains

Good Morning!  I have another fun guest poster here on the blog today!  Amberly from Re-Creations is here sharing an awesome upcycle project … DIY Cork Keychains (In case I needed a reason to drink more wine!!).

I’ll let her take it away, here’s Amberly …

Okay, okay, I know what you are thinking. This girl STILL has corks?!? After all of the projects I have made with wine corks, yes I still have many more to go. Listen, we all have our hobbies, right? I’m only doing it for the love of the craft. Or that is what I am telling myself. Anyways, I thought these wine cork keychains would be fun to share this week! Here are the steps to making your own DIY Keychain Corks:

3 Pearls of Wisdom To Live By

Okay … I’m kinda of thrilled about this post today!  It’s a little different than what I normally share.  It’s not a craft.  It’s not a DIY.  It’s not even a project AT ALL and it doesn’t contain any pictures of my boys (WHOA, I know, right?!?).  Megan from The Walker Fireside Chats is here today with a refreshing post.  It’s an honest, feel good post, and something that really hit home for me.  It helps hit the ‘reset’ button.

I’ll let Megan get right to it …
