TUESDAY TURN ABOUT #53 Patriotic Inspiration

Last week’s party was full of Paper Pleasantries!

Happy Tuesday everyone! How is life going in your neck of the woods?

If you missed my ‘special announcement’ this week, take a look at my new Summer Printables post… I’m even sharing a couple secrets, too!

Along with my special news, I got a haircut, too! Woot! I know you were just DYING to know that. First cut in almost 4 months! That’s an eternity when you have a pixie! Can you tell I’m excited from all the “!!!!” ?…!

This week, I’m sharing some wonderful patriotic inspiration from some wonderful blogging buddies. And remember…

Now for our weekly tips!

Weekly Blogging Tip

We’re returning to Pinterest for today’s blogging tip!

After you have set-up your Pinterest business account, be sure to enable ‘rich pins’. This ‘version’ of pins offers more information on your pin, which makes it easier for the user, and a more enjoyable experience for them, too!

Update: Here’s a post on How to Enable Rich Pins.

Weekly Household Tip

Pillows are the perfect way to add texture and color to any room! But, storing all those big fluffy ‘friends’ can take up a lot of room!

Next time, purchase pillow covers that will fit the pillow insert(s) you already have! Keep a couple or three of the same size pillow inserts, and donate the rest. Storing LOTS (wink) of folded pillow covers takes up MUCH less space than storing lots of pillows!

Okay, NOW let’s take a look at this week’s features!

    1. Thanks, Barbara! I’m working on what I’m going to do the teacup once it gets here! I need to pray for some inspiration! 😉

  2. Love that tip about the pillows! Years ago I picked up that tip from Marty of A Stroll Thru Life when she explained how she organizes her throw pillow collection. It’s genius! And ever since, I make sure to create pillow covers that are envelope style.

    1. Yes… I learned the tip for Yvonne at StoneGable… same thing. Her ‘library’ of pillow covers is amazing!

  3. Thank you for hosting! This is what I featured the week of 6-8 to 6-12 on my blog. On Tuesday was Salsa Roll Ups. Wednesday saw Stuffed Peppers. Thursday was Basic Marinara Sauce. And winding up this Week was Homemade Beef Stew Seasoning. Enjoy!

    1. Very happy to have a fresh cut. I’m taking my mom on Saturday… Her hair is crazy right now! LOL! Thanks for joining us, Cindy!

  4. Thanks for hosting Julie! I recently managed to get my haircut too – what a relief! I was starting to resemble a poodle! Hope you have a lovely week!

  7. Thanks so much Julie! Congrats on your haircut and I love the anchor printable and patriotic bead vignette you created…I also love love Patti’s arrangement in the pepper can, too cute!

  8. Congratulations on getting accepted to Mediavine! Great tip on the pillow covers ~ wished I had known that one before I collected a bazillion number of pillows over the years.

    1. Pillows are wonderful, aren’t they, Allyson! I just purged quite a few that I hadn’t realized I had collected. 🙂 Thank you for the congrats!

  9. Hi Julie,
    Lucky you to have a hair cut! I’m feeling pretty shaggy and would LOVE to get my haircut but in Arizona, Covid-19 is rampant so I’m staying in as much as I can. I will be so overgrown by the end of all this! I am really loving your tips and this week the Blogging Tips on rich pins struck a chord with me! I have heard of doing this, but had forgotten about it. I am going to see if I can figure out how to do that. Have a wonderful week!

    1. Tiffany, I didn’t realize AZ was still having such issues with the virus. I need to call my dear friend that lives there! As far as Rich Pins, I added a link for a tutorial to this post. Hope that helps! So happy to see you!

  10. Well it looks like I’m too late to this party…. but Rich Pins— ugh— I know nothing– and it looks like a bit of work is needed in order to enable them…. another thing to put on the to-do list in my head! But thanks for putting it on my radar.


    1. Hopefully, you can make it this Tuesday, Liberty. 🙂 Creating a business account and enabling Rich Pins takes about an hour… it’s pretty easy! 😉 (It’s always something!)

      1. Pinterest made it confusing… but I tried someone else’s instructions and now it looks like I’m all validated and ready to go! Great! Thanks! I already had a business account. Now I’m excited to see what happens next! : )
