Hello Everyone!  I hope you had an amazing weekend!  We celebrated my youngest’s 3rd Birthday with a Jungle Party!   So be on the lookout for some fun party posts coming up!  If you missed it last week, I shared some SUPER Simple Watermelon Cookies that are totally from store-bought ingredients! {shhh!}  I also shared my first 4th of July project, this sparkling Firecracker Centerpiece!  Now it is YOUR time to show us what YOU have been up to!  Thanks so much for liking up with us each week and we are excited to have Diane picking features this week!


Every Monday you can link up your crafts / DIY Ideas / recipes to not just one, but SIX awesome blogs:

C.R.A.F.T. // Lines Across // Uncommon Designs // That’s What Che Said // Creatively Living //

& our newest co-host:

An Extraordinary Day

Here’s the deal, we decided it would be FUN to add a 6th rotating hostess to the Monday Funday crew! That’s 6x the exposure! So, ONE crafty link party extravaganza will happen on SIX blogs. Plus, each week one of us will choose projects to feature on all six blogs.We will also be sharing links throughout the week on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. You can follow the Monday Funday party tweets at #MondayFundayParty !

It’s been six Extraordinary weeks of guest hosting with the lovely Monday Funday ladies. Thank you Jamie, Cheryl, Trish and Bonnie, Katie, and Rachel for inviting me to join in the FUN! What a blessing it has been to meet more readers and see all your amazing talent and ingenuity.

It’s a treat to be given the opportunity to introduce myself to you and share just a bit from An Extraordinary Day.


My motto in life is, Why be ordinary when you can be Extraordinary!




I enjoy sharing simple doable DIY projects, gardening tips, and seasonal home decor on the blog.




Every Sunday, I share God-thoughts for my weekly Joy Day! posts and invite my readers to join in counting gifts. I love going for walks and capturing the beauty of nature with my camera and sharing it here on the blog with inspiring verses.




But, most of all, at An Extraordinary Day, I want to inspire joy-filled living. Whatever the circumstance….life can be lived to the full.


It would make my day to have you connect with me in one or more of the following ways…

Facebook :: Pinterest :: Google + :: Shop-Longaberger Lifestyle
