::Weekend Bloggy Reading::

It's been a busy week here at Serenity Now.

Thanks to each and every blogger who linked up to the Decorating Dilemmas Party on Wednesday. It was a smaller party, which is nice because I think most participants did a great job visiting around and offering encouragement and feedback on Dilemmas and Solutions. The smaller party gave me more time to enjoy my twenty-fauxth birthday with my family.

There were some unique dilemmas, like Paula's shadeless lamp. And there were also some dilemmas that lots of people can relate to, like Danya's corner fireplace. I LOVE how everyone offered thoughtful and genuine advice for each Dilemma presented.

There were also several great Solutions featured, but my two favorites were Pam's triumph over the pink tile fireplace and Kendall's patio progress. These were exciting for me to see because both ladies had linked up those areas as Dilemmas several months ago. They took the suggestions they were given and ran with them...and now they can "wow" everyone!

If you missed linking up this round, check back in soon. I'll announce a May date in the next week or so. If you've linked up recently, start making your plans for updates now so you can share with us at the next Show Me the Progress Party.

As far as fantastic links from around Blogland, I found so many this week that I had to split them up and save some to share with you next week. I love the creativity I see!

~Lynette featured an easy Ruffled Tank Tutorial- perfect for any little girl!

~In love with the new "How to Take a Fantastic Picture" series over at Tatertots and Jello. Great tips, and gorgeous photos!

~The Nester had a great post recently about Furnishing Your Home Secondhand. I like that she practices what she preaches, and I would kill to go yard saling with that girl!

~Love the fun look of Jennifer's Easy T-shirt Necklace. A nice tutorial!

~Chain Link Fence Curtains over at have to see it to believe it. Divine!

~New to sewing or want to learn? Cheryl had an informative post to get you started with a list of Essentials.

As to what I'm up to tomorrow night, I'll give you a little hint tomorrow morning. T and I are hoping to double date tonight with my brother and sister-in-law...the guys want to go to Gander Mountain and the us girls want to see Date Night. I have a feeling I know who'll win out.

If you haven't entered the fantabulous Mississippi Mud Giveaway, there's still time! And please check back later this weekend, because Inspired Boutique will have a sweet Mother's Day Giveaway to share with Serenity Now readers.
