Want to make a Pretty Crafty Home too?

Thank you so much for your fabulous response to my little home-making plans for the year!

I'm so pleased that you like the idea and that many of you have already said you'd like to join me.  I'm so excited!

I have been busy making a start on the huge and arduous house cleaning task.  But also, more pleasurably busy, making plans for this bloggy side of the venture.

I thought it would be nice if we share a bit of bloggy love along the way, so:

  • I'll put a link of those who want to join in on my sidebar, and I'll follow you too.  (If I'm not already)
  • You can grab one of my fabulous 'I'm making a Pretty Crafty Home with Cherry Heart' buttons from the new PCH page, which will link back to me.

Want to join in?
Just follow these simple steps:

1.  Leave a comment on this post to say you want to join in and leave a link to your webpage (Don't have a blog of your own - no problem, you can jump to step 3.)

2.  Grab one of the buttons from here (scroll down a bit) and pop it on your side bar or use it in a post or something. Once I get your comment, I'll come and visit your blog, leave a nice message or two, hope to see my bloggy button and then I'll add your link to my sidebar.

3.  Come and join the 'Pretty Crafty Home' Flickr group, so we can share photos, tips and have a chat!


That's it.  (Well, that and the fact you might want to go and do some things around your house.....!)


Don't worry, by the way, about feeling any obligation by saying here that you'll join.  I'm not demanding any great commitment here, this is just about you achieving what you want to achieve, us all sharing tips and encouraging each other.

If you've already been so wonderful and lovely as to say you'd like to join in (and you have a webpage linked to that comment), you should find your link on my sidebar already.  If you don't see it  I either couldn't find the link, wasn't totally sure if you had decided to join yet or maybe I missed you (sorry!).  Either way, comment on this post and I shall sort it out toot sweet!

I'm going put all on this info on the PCH page too, so all the links and buttons and things are all together!

That's all for now I think, but if you want to know anything else, just ask!

(Oh!  And if there's any problems with the bloggy buttons, do let me know - I had a heck of a struggle with the blighters - but I think I got there in the end...)

  1. Oh, I am torn. I definitely need to spiffy the place up a bit, but time is short, a move may be on the cards and I've committed to so much else for 2012. Can I say a qualified yes to joining in, I might be a poor participant.

  2. Please count me in. I have so many ideas for cute things to make for the house, and definitely some corners that are in serious need of decluttering, I just need a gentle push to get started. :-D

    I've already added your lovely banner to my blog (http://www.stiehl-style.de), and now off I go to make a list. I love making lists. Just need to remind myself that completing the tasks on said lists is part of the game. ;-)

  10. Count me in! I already decided this year I would tackle my list of things I wanted to do or make for the home. We have been here a year and it is about time to get settled in and organized and beautified.

  20. I've been resisting, but I'm fed up with my tip of a home! I'm joining in!! We're renovating our old house, we have been for 4 years so far and haven't got very far due to a very limited budget, but there's no reason I can't pretty up some of it.

  23. Hi Sandra - just popped over from Ravelry and what a fab idea!!!!! I'd love to join in - like some of the others I might not be the best participant as we might be moving but I'm certainly going to have to spruce the place up a bit before that can happen!!!!! Grabbing your button now :) x PS - I'm in Bedfordshire too - spooky!

  24. I'm in too! As we just added on to our house, there's a lot of things to be moved around and unpacked and repacked and cleared an neatify and prettify. Will grab the buttons and add ons from tomorrow and take a long hard look at the 27 things that need to be done immediately...move the boys into a new room, clear out piles of magazine, move clothes into wardrobe, clear magazines, measure bathroom and get tiles, hang picture (waiting for 3 yrs), clear piles of..., no I said that ;-)

  25. I'm in!! I should be an old hand at this, but since we moved I have not been able to get in the groove with this new house. Clearly not a home yet.

    blessings, jilly

  29. ooh I'm in! I've already been decluttering and have made a few pretty things but there's plenty more to do!!

    I can't comment with my blog as there's no name/url option and my openid is playing up, however if you go to my google profile you'll see a link to my fake blog, the red wren, which points to my real blog, the red wren.. complicated? hehe.

    2. I've definitley added the button to my blog.
      We built a new house 3 years ago and I made the move into it on just those guidlines, if I didn't LOVE it then it didn't make the journey with us. Weeeellll, except for a couple of boxed that still needed the final 'go through' and some are still waiting.
      So I'm up for the challenge of tidy, sort, jettison and make!
