This week was so fun to look at all the spring inspiration, ideas, and tips! Here in So Cal, the weather is going back-and-forth and forth-and-back. Ninety degrees one week, then 60 degrees the next. I feel badly for those with allergies. 🙁

I threw out my back this weekend, and it’s taking a while to heal. A visit to the chiropractor may be in order. With that said, I’m going to make this post short and sweet so I’m not sitting at my desk any longer than my back can handle.

This week’s features include DIYs and projects that will start off your spring preparations.


Be sure to hop on over to My Family Thyme and Reinvented Delaware to check out SIX additional features from TTA!
If you haven’t been featured at MWA this week, you just may be featured there!

First, let’s look at some tips.

Weekly Household Tip

Have you ever used a hairdryer to remove a stubborn label? I can’t believe I used this tip for the first time this week. There was a sticky-stuck label on my new refrigerator, so I pulled out my trusty hairdryer, heated the label, and slowly peeled it off. There was some residue left behind, but some olive oil and a lint free cloth took care of that!

Weekly Blogging Tip

When you are writing a tutorial for your readers, remember to write it FOR and TO them, not ABOUT you.

For example, when sharing how to sew a pillow cover, sometimes we naturally say, “First, I put the two pieces together. Next, I sewed them on the machine. Then, I turned it inside-out.” (Notice how this is written talking about “me” and what I did.)

Try writing the post for/to your readers. “First, you take two pieces of fabric and put them together. Next, you sew them on the machine. Then you turn the fabric inside-out.”

The difference will let your readers know they CAN do the project, instead of the them thinking, “Yeah, YOU can do it, but I don’t think I can.” 😉

Now, let’s get to the party!

Paint it White!

Don’t you love what a paint of coat can do? And when it’s white, it just elevates the item even more! Take a look at how Astrid from The Chipped Maus updated a couple of her home decor items… because YOU can do it, too!
