The Hosts (4)


Welcome our Co-Host, Zografia!

Meet Zografia of Bisozozo, our Co-Host for the next two weeks!


Hi!  I’m Zografia, Zozo for some.  My loved one and I live in the city where Frappe Coffee was invented, Thessaloniki!  I am a 30-something new mom.  A second man came in my life in late October 2013.  Currently unemployed, like many others! I started this blog when we moved to our home, a few months after unemployement visited me.  Crafting was a way of keeping me sane!  I began making some decorations for our small palace and after a while I started blogging to share my work with the world!!!


Most Popular from Last Week!


My Featured Pick!

Here’s a few shares from last week that I absolutely LOVE!  Yes, there were so many awesome posts shared that I picked THREE amazing ones to feature this week!  Make sure you visit the other hosts too to see their featured picks….it might be you! :)

Y’all know I’ve been on a recent DIY succulent planter kick (you can find them here and here), so I am all about this faux succulent frame by My So-Called DIY Blog….and apparently so are a bunch of you since this was one of our most-clicked shares from last week’s party!  Can you believe this was created with a thrift store frame and a damaged wreath from Target?!? {PIN IT!}

I also love me some chalkboard posters (just see my All Things Chalkboard series for proof), so this real (as in non-digital) 5-minute chalkboard beauty by DIY Just Cuz is right up my alley!  Learn how to create your own with a contact paper stencil and chalkboard markers! {PIN IT!}



Back in grad school, I dabbled in jewelry making and I still have all of my old supplies.  This bead wrapped earring tutorial by Woods of Bell Trees has me seriously wanting to pull my stash out of storage and get back into the hobby! {PIN IT!}
