Tuesday Turn About #235 Sweet Starts: Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and it’s time to at least start THINKING about those pink and red DIYs. We are all about sweet starts today!


Last week, we celebrated the new year!

The party has started! And it’s a sweet one!

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought y’all might want a head ‘start’ on some sweet DIYs. (Ever heard of ‘Sweet Tarts’? Well, this is sweet STARTS.) 😉

Be sure to at least visit the features and leave a comment, and even pin their post for later!

And remember…

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

Abode Adventures

Well, if it’s not one thing it’s another, right?

Mom started complaining of a sore throat about 1.5 weeks ago. No other symptoms. So we waited for the hospice nurse visit, not realizing that it was esophageal thrush! Argh! Mom is in a great deal of pain when she eats, but thankful that is the only time. She is now on a liquid swish/swallow med for the next 14 days (she’s been on it for 5 days so far).

Please be praying for Mom, as this is a long/slow healing time. She is being a trooper. Healing is causing her to sleep even more (18 hours a day!), and she is eating even less!

On a ‘fun’ note, I’m rearranging my bedroom and setting up an office for myself! I’m assembling a new desk and adding some new items to help with organizing. I can’t wait to share it with you all!

Weekly Household Tip

This past week, I shared a post for a secret formula for deep cleaning LVP flooring. I kid you not, it’s a game-changer!

Weekly Blogging Tip

Do you have an About Me page on your blog? Well, start the new year off right and build a page that shares a bit of your life… or even more than a bit.

Readers like to know things about the creators of the blogs they read. It helps them feel connected. And aren’t blogs all about connecting and engaging?

So, what are you waiting for? Visit a few of your favorite bloggers’ About pages and get some inspo, and then starting sharing your own life!

Now, let’s party!
