It's been just over two months now that I started Make Life Lovely, and it has been an amazing couple of months!  I love the whole process of coming up with new ideas, creating, making, and constantly thinking about the next DIY project, organizing idea, makeup tip, or holiday craft that will go on the blog.  How many people get to do what they love every single day?  Not too many, I would guess, so I count myself very lucky.

This new year, I plan on bringing you more great ideas to make your lives even more lovely.  I will continue to post new ideas Monday-Thursday, and continue my Featured Music Friday, which I love.  It's been a busy two months, and everything here is done only by me, but I wouldn't change it for a thing.  I am very pleased with the amount of people who have visited my blog.  It's nice to see that I'm not just writing to myself, even if there may not be any comments left on a post... hint hint ;)

I wanted to share some links with you of different sites that have featured my projects and designs.  It is an amazing feeling to be contacted by a blog, company, or PR rep about something I made, and to have them share my work with their readers.  It makes my day!

Here are a few of my favorite features:

TLC (eek!, I love TLC) recently asked to feature my Anthro-Inspired Snow Globes on their parenting blog, Parentables.  The article was on last-minute Christmas gifts that you can make, and you can read it here.

The Huffington Post featured my Metallic Gold Acorns on their website as one of their holiday craft ideas segments before Thanksgiving, and then re posted it before Christmas.  You can read the article here.

I was recently contacted by Constanza, who lives in Chile, and who created a sewing blog called Bendita Costura (written in Spanish).  She asked if she could write about me and Make Life Lovely, and so she wrote a very nice post in Spanish AND in English, so that I could read it, which was very sweet.  I would love for you to read it here.

Earth 911 also featured my Metallic Gold Acorns AND my Scrapbook Paper Thanksgiving Wreath in an article about DIY Thanksgiving Decor.  You can read it here.

Earth 911 also asked me to participate in a contest they will be having on their website very soon... more details to come, but I am currently working on my project, and can't wait to see all of the entries!

Thank you for joining me on this fun adventure I have recently begun!  I am so excited for all of the projects and ideas to come, and happy that you are along with me for the ride!!  Keep reading, commenting, and pinning!  I'd also love for you to tell your friends about Make Life Lovely :)
