What Have YOU Been Up to Lately?

The Show Me the Progress party will be here before you know it! 

Are your calendars marked for Wednesday, March 10th? The party will go live on Tuesday night around 10 pm (ET) and I'll keep it open until Thursday evening.

I have a wee little Giveaway contest/drawing for the participants this time around.

You do NOT have to have linked to a Decorating Dilemmas party to participate in Show Me the Progress

I originally planned this as a way for those who have linked to DD to share their updates, but I think it would be fun to read about the progress you're making in any area of your life (weight loss, cleaning up clutter, a book list, meeting a work goal, finishing a craft project, you name it!). 

Here's a little repost with the details in case you're new to the blog and would like to participate:

{Pro-gress, noun.} 
1. Movement, as toward a goal; advance.
2. Development or growth.
3. Steady improvement, as of a society or civilization.

I love a good "Before" and "After" post with lots of photos.

But some of us take longer to accomplish those "Afters." 

Sometimes it's laziness, lack of funds, or days filled with work and activities. Sometimes it's just not knowing exactly which direction to take so you can get to the "After" shot. 

That's why I'm hosting the "Show Me the Progress" Party on March 10th.

It's going to be a time to celebrate the little steps you're taking to improve those Dilemmas you've been linking up with here at Serenity Now don't have to have a complete, finished Delightful "After" photo to link up. 

Progress can be anything as small as listing the ideas from Decorating Dilemmas comments you received that you really liked and want to implement. 

Or, tell us your plan for your Dilemma and show us a photo of the supplies you're planning on using. 

Halfway done with the transformation? That's okay...we want to see and be encouraged!

If you're new to the blog or haven't linked up a Decorating Dilemma before, then you can take some time to share progress you're making in any area of your life at home. Have you been more consistent with your Meal Planning? Have you started a work out routine? Have you read any books on your 2010 "must-read" list?

We all know that it's one thing to link up a Decorating Dilemma and let the advice start rolling in. It's another thing entirely to work with the feedback you've been given and push yourself towards a goal. 

I was really inspired by the comments I received on my January post, and I've been making some plans for my Family room. I actually have some Progress to share with you all, based on the comments. I am so excited to show you what I've been working on and where I'm going with the room!

I hope you'll go back through your posts or look through your home and find a small area you've made some Progress in this winter! 

{Hope to see you on March 10th! It's coming soon!}

**Please check back in later today for a surprise Giveaway!!**

  1. I'll be there, I'm so excited :)

  2. Amanda, I do have this date marked on my calendar, and I'm looking forward to it. I think this is a GREAT idea for a party. And you're smart to open it up even further here. So often we get hung up on having only the finished product to celebrate. . . but progress is wonderful! Progress is something to celebrate!!

  3. Woohoo! Thanks for the reminder I'm gonna get started on taking pics of my "progressing" icky bathroom. :-)

  4. No progress on the daddy chair- someone else snatched the leather chair, but I'm still stalking CL, so we'll see...

    I do at least have a plan to share for my pink fireplace...

  5. Such a good party idea, Amanda! Can't wait! :)


  6. I am always up for a party!! I will bring my own hat and blower thingy!! Hugs

  7. I have it on my calendar Ms. Amanda! I'm hoping I'll be able to share some patio stuff!! Gotta get busy.

    Also, when is the next Decorating Dilemmas party? I've got my next trouble spot ready to go! Can't wait!

  8. I'll be there with "problem area" in tow! :)

  9. You are like THE blogging queen! I don't know how you do it Missy!!

  10. yeah, so i'd totally do this with weight loss because i've never worked so hard for ANYTHING in my life, but have no idea how to do what you're!! esp posting pics, since i don't blog. so, i'll just have to revel in the glow of my intrinsic motivation by myself. ;o) plus, i wouldn't want to appear TOO vain, huh?

  11. I will write up a post this weekend so that I can participate. It will be fun to see everyone's progress. I'm especially interested to see what you accomplished in your living room.

  12. I can't wait to see all the progress! As for my own, its beyond non-existent at the moment. I've been so bogged down w. work I've had no time to focus on my project. Maybe this weekend!


I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
