Hey Hey!! It’s Think & Make Thursday!!! But before we get the party started, we have a few special announcements. First, we want to say goodbye to Courtney from Fry Sauce & Grits. She’s been hosting with us since the spring and needs to focus on her family and other blogging commitments this fall. We do, however, have TWO fabulous new hosts we’re adding this week, which means when you link up at Think and Make Thursday, your posts will now be seen on TEN blogs giving you an even better chance of being featured!
New Think and Make Thursday Hosts
Bre is a self-proclaimed Target, Diet Coke, HGTV and furniture rehabbing junkie. She started Average But Inspired after stepping back from her job as an intellectual property attorney to stay home with her young children. It gives her time to explore her creative side. She says, “my projects are always simple and inexpensive because: (a) I usually don’t know what I’m doing; (b) I’m on a budget and can’t afford expensive screw ups; and (c) I only have so much time in each day to devote to my hobbies. I truly believe that if I can do this stuff, so can anybody else.” With Halloween coming up, you might want to check out her post on how to make your own Mickey or Minnie Mouse ears or her Wood Trim Corner Block Pumpkins. You’ll also find tons of home tips and easy ideas, like how to organize your home using mesh laundry bags from the dollar store or her recipe for semi-homemade chocolate banana bread.
Heather and her husband, Dave are two recovering urbanites who relocated to the countryside outside of Washington DC with the hopes of re-charging their batteries. They’ve devoted much of their married life to buying and restoring homes. She says “it’s been both exhilarating, and completely exhausting, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.” They love designing, decorating and DIY’ing their way through life and especially enjoy tackling budget-friendly DIY projects you can try in your own home. They’re not afraid to try new things, make mistakes and share it all at The Heathered Nest. You can tell there is always laughter and a good time to be had while they’re at work, like Heather’s epic Stainiac video to introduce their DIY Deck Staining Adventure or how they killed the Smurf when they created their daughter’s amazing bedroom. You really ought to just check out their entire home tour. It’s chock full of creative decorating and DIY ideas to inspire your next project.
Hey Hey!! Welcome to Think & Make Thursday!!
We want this to be a place where you can share your bright ideas with us and many other MAKERS. We’d love to see all of your bright ideas for the home, including DIY projects, crafts, home improvement projects, makeovers, recipes, cleaning & homemaking tips, and kid stuff.
Think and Make Thursday will go live at 6 AM ET every Thursday for you to share what you’ve been spending your time on. Since there are 10 of us bloggers co-hosting this link party, that means you will have the chance for your links to be seen on 10 different blogs. That means lots of exposure for you and your blog! And of course, a chance to meet and mingle with a lot of other like minded friends.
Here are your hosts:
Each week all ten of us will choose a few of our favorite links and share them on our respective blogs. This gives you a chance for a lot of exposure! Of course, if you’re featured feel free to share and tell all of your friends. Grab a “My BRIGHT IDEA was featured” button and display it proudly on your side bar or link party page.
Now it’s your turn to share your Bright Idea for a chance to be featured at next week’s party. If your Bright Idea is featured by one of the hosts, we will also pin it to our Think and Make Thursday Pinterest Board plus you’ll be able to share this shiny button for all to see on your blog!
