2013 1ST PROJECT OF THE YEAR PARTY




I've teamed up with Cottages & Bungalows Magazine again this year for another "1st Project of the Year Party" at WhisperWood Cottage. We are searching for projects in these two themes:

Before & After Rooms
Before & After Items

The linky will be open Feb. 1-28, and you will be able to link up your projects completed and posted in 2013. At least one person will win in a multi-page feature in an upcoming issue of Cottages & Bungalows Magazine!

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

    1. Innovation
    2. Usefulness
    3. Adaptability to any cottage style
    4. Budget friendliness
    5. Quality of the project/craftsmanship
    6. Quality of the photos (great tips at Donna's workshop series on point & shoot cameras)
    7. Entrant follows all party rules

        4. OMG, this is great. I have the perfect before and after project, but I made it in 2012. I'll just have to come up with another fantastic idea!

          1. I've sent an email to the linky tool to find out what's going on. Hopefully, it will not be long until it is back online! :)
