Welcome everyone! So glad to have you at the party this week!

It seems I’m overly pre-occupied with the weather these days, but it’s just a wee bit crazy here still.

We’ve had wonderful mid 70s for over a week now, but it looks like a couple of scorchers will be hitting at the end of the week… and then? Then we dip down into the 60s!!!! What’d I tell ya?! Crazy! What’s happening in your area with the weather?

This week, some DIYs were shared at the party that are great gift ideas, too. Are you ready to start your Christmas shopping/diying yet? (I think I am!) So, let’s take a look as some DIY gift idea inspiration!

And remember…

But before we start the party, let’s take a look at a couple of tips!

This post may contain affiliate links, at no additional cost to you. For more information, see my complete disclosure HERE.

Weekly Household Tip

When painting a room, do you use painter’s tape for cutting in and protecting surfaces from over-paint? I often do, too.

However, this weekend I decided to use my Zibra 2″ Angle Brush for the cutting-in of my bathroom walls. It worked like a dream. No painter’s tape needed, and the lines were straight and even. Saved lots of time, too!

Weekly Blogging Tip

Do you know what Domain Authority is? According to OptinMonster.com:

Domain authority is the most accurate representation of the search results landscape and a key to understanding why certain websites rank higher than others. Higher DA sites perform better than lower DA sites. As a result, there’s a direct correlation between high DA scores and higher rankings.

To find out what your Domain Authority score is, simply put your domain URL in the free DA checker from ahrefs.com. Give it a try!

This Week’s Features:

A Gift Mat

Party newcomer and blogging buddy Kori from The Farmhouse Life is sharing a tutorial on creating a seasonal outdoor mat. For those of us that don’t have a machine, this is a great alternative for stenciling a mat, and it would make a great gift (for any season/occasion), too! (Be sure to visit Kori’s lovely blog!)

Thoughtful Bath Bombs

Why do I consider these DIY bath bombs ‘thoughtful’? Because Ellen from The Socialite’s Closet created these bath bombs for sensitive skin! Just think, you can make them for just about anyone to enjoy. 🙂 My little grandson struggles with eczema, but he loves bath bombs, so I think these will be on my list to make for stocking stuffers!

A Fragrant Fire…. Starter

Have you ever used a fire starter? I have, and they are quite amazing! And these fire starters from Satsuma Designs are not only practical, they are pretty AND smell amazing (can you see why?)! AND, Jennifer is sharing a free printable with us, too! Take a look at all her wrapping suggestions, as well!

  5. Aren’t Zibra brushes amazing! They are my go-to brushes for EVERYTHING, including cutting around walls. We are having record-breaking warm temperatures here as well. It is unheard to not need a jacket in November. But old man winter is making his appearance again this weekend. Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks for hosting!

  6. Julie your painting tip is gold! I have a room to paint and I’ve been putting it off because of all the prep. I may need to give your Zebra brushes a go instead, what a time saver that would be! Thanks for the party and I hope you are having a lovely week!

    1. Thanks, Jayne… I actually learned that tip from my daughter’s father-in-law. He helped her cut-in her kitchen and only used a brush. Not sure why I hadn’t thought of it before! 😉

  7. Thanks for the party Julie and happy November. The temperature swings are totally crazy and add the darkness with the time change it feels like the year is just flying by. I love the idea of those fire starters! Have a great week.

    XO- MaryJo
