Bloggy Olympics!

Guess what? The 2012 Summer Olympics are coming soon and we are so excited! To help get in the
spirit of the Olympics and to add a bloggy spin of our own we will be hosting a 6 week Bloggy Olympics!

There will be 17 different blogs participating over 6 weeks and 6 events from June 9th- July 21st. Each week different blogs will share a simple tutorial that you can copy or will get you thinking about that event’s theme. At the end of the week they will host a linky party for you to link up your finished event projects. And of course there will be features, giveaways, and fun Olympic stuff!

The Opening Ceremony begins Thursday, June 7th and runs until Friday, June 8th at midnight. Come link up your blog if you are planning on joining in an event for the “Bloggy Olympics”.

Here's the schedule:

I received the torch today from Cassie over at Primitive & Proper -- Thanks Cassie!

Now, here's the short story on me, in case you don't know:

I'm married to the love of my life, Handy Andy. We've been married for almost 5 years, we have a dog named Jackson, and we bought a house a few years ago. Our house was quite the fixer-upper, and it allowed Handy Andy to show off his handyman skills (and use his catchphrase "I can make that!"). It also has given me a lot of opportunities to be creative with decorating...or at least try. I also really love working on scrapbooks, furniture redo's, crafts, recipes, and other projects...oh, and I'm a little OCD.

I'm participating in the Craft Event with my teammates CW Frosting & Freaking Craft. The event begins on Saturday, June 30th, so don't forget to stop back by and check it out and maybe try my craft yourself. You'll want to keep those envelopes I know you have lying around...

Now, passing the torch on to Jenni at Kissed by a Frog.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll join in the Games!
