Be Inspired Features and Link Party #52

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back for features and party day!

 
I've started the year on a bit of a mission. I am making my way through every drawer, closet, nook and cranny around here in an effort to clean out the clutter and get organized. I'm generally a pretty organized girl. Clutter stresses me out. But I've learned that once it gets warm enough to paint outside, that pretty much takes over my life and it gets hard to keep up with everything. So this year I'm being pro-active. And I have to say, cleaning out the clutter just feels good! How about you? Have you started the year on a mission? ... Now let's check out some of the seriously amazing projects from last week...

Leslie from City Girl Arts shared this beautiful diamond dresser redo with striking brass hardware!


Wendy from Sometimes Twice used paint and pretty paper to take this little bookcase to a whole new level!


Mary Alice from Chateau Chic used the theme of clocks and time for her January mantel and I am totally smitten!




And Doreen from Hymns and Verses created this totally awesome Ballard Designs wall clock knockoff for under $15! WOW!


My friend Emily from The Diligent One turned an under-utilized closet into an amazing mini-mudroom!


Looking for a Valentine's Day gift idea? Crystelle from Crystelle Boutique shared these darling little heart handwarmers made from upcycled sweaters!


I think this Delicate White Chocolate Cake with Cherry Preserves from Barbara at 21 Rosemary Lane just might be the perfect cake to make your sweetheart for Valentine's Day!


And I have one more feature to share, but I'm saving that for tomorrow because it has a little story to go along with it!

Thanks so much to everyone who linked up and linked back!
We so appreciate having you here. If you've been featured, feel free to grab a cute little button from the sidebar!
 


Now on to this week's party...
 
* Link up your furniture makeovers, DIY projects, home decor, crafts, recipes, thrifty finds, etc... We want to see whatever is inspiring you at the moment!

* Grab a party button or link back in some way. You must have a visible link back to be considered for a feature!
 
* And we'd love to have you follow along with us!
 
We'll be back next Tuesday with features and a brand new party.
Now let's be inspired!
