Guuuuys!!!! *Jumps Up and Down*

First off, I'd like to welcome all of the new faces. I am tickled pink and thrilled that you are joining us!

To celebrate my 100th follower, I'm going to do a little giveaway. I know, I know I've never done one before but I think you'll really like it. Here's a hint: you've seen it here on my blog and *I* make it {can I be any more vague?}. More to come on that later.

Today I wanted to share a few Pea features with you. First, Kristin at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia is featuring The Purple Pea on her blog. Kristin's wonderful {and I mean WONDERFUL} kitchen redo was the straw that broke the camel's back for my kitchen makeover. No more hemming and hawing after I saw hers. Her kitchen was the ultimate inspiration for mine. If she could do it, so could I!


If you haven't had a chance to go visit, please do. She really has some great ideas {as in making her cabinets appear to be taller!}and some revamps that we all would droll over {like this desk. (if it ever disappears from your guest bedroom Kristin, you know where to find it)}. She's a girl after my own heart!!


The second Pea sighting is from Someday Crafts. Michelle is a busy full time Mom who has started her own collection of "someday" crafts. I think we all have a list along those lines. She's always has oodles of links to some pretty amazing craft projects. My favorite part of her blog? Her link parties. LOVE link parties! I just spent the greater part of a hour looking at all of the links. Maybe I should get back to work....


Please take just a moment to go visit these two lovely ladies and leave them a note to let them know you stopped by.

P.S. Stay Tuned!! By request, I'm going to be doing a two part post on how to make watermarks for your photographs! And you won't need to purchase Photoshop!!  Thank me later. ;)



Have a great weekend y'all!!!!

Hi, I just saw Kristin's post on you. Well done you have made a really great job of your kitchen, and I am SO impressed by your lighting tutorial. I like to pick up tools but I have never dared touch the electrics, you are my new hero !!
Have a great weekend

Congrats on the growth of your blog! I didn't get a chance to comment when you posted photos of your kitchen makeover, but it looks fabulous! Great job!

Found you from Kristin's blog and your kitchen transformation is fabulous! I love the white paint!

Even though I'm a mommy blogger who blogs about everything, I spent a whole week posting my DIY projects! You're welcome to drop by and tell me what you think!

I found you via Kristin's blog. I love her, she's awesome. :) I'm so glad that she pointed me to you-love you kitchen redo btw!

I am excited that you will be showing everyone how to do a watermark. I've been wanting to learn how and do not have photoshop. I look foward to seeing that post!

I'm enjoying visiting your blog and I'm now a follower.

Have a wonderful weekend!
