hide and seek

I’m hiding out today.

You see, yesterday’s post about my 33 dollars and change windfall has sent me underground.

But I’ll confide in you, my faithful blog friends.

I’ll share with you my whereabouts.

You – and only you – can seek me out here …

… where I’m guest posting at Cre8ive Motives.

And while I’m in stealth mode, Mandy of Cre8ive Motives is not.

So I must insist that you follow this link

… and check out what Mandy has to offer.

Mandy launched her engaging Cre8ive Motives blog just one month after me.  And after checking out her posts, I must now dub her the Queen of the quick, easy, on the cheap super fabulous diy …

I mean, check out this (and just click on the images to find the full post at Cre8ive Motives because they’re all linked … just because that’s the way I roll) …

… and this …

… and this …


Easy. Breezy. All were created on single digit budgets. Yes.  You read that right.  Single digits.

Oh, and Mandy can serve as your personal ‘find it for less’ shopper …

… though I should clarify that by saying ‘find it for hundreds and hundreds of dollars less’ personal shopper …

Mandy digs deep for her “Chic and Cheap” posts …

… really, truly, and “thank you Mandy for your tenacity” deep to uncover some mind-blowing deals.  Like this Zinc Door Twig Brass Accent Table that retails for $498.00. She found an eerily similar table at Kirkland’s for a mere $49.99 …

Am I right.   Right?  A knock-off find that fulfills your decorating dreams while putting close to $450 in your pocket …

It’s a deal worthy of bringing me out of hiding …

P.S. If you feel inspired to pin these projects, please do so from Mandy’s blog … not mine. Just want to make sure the source is correct!
