Hello and welcome to Homespun by Laura! I can’t believe it’s been five months since my last blog post, but there’s nothing like the One Room Challenge to give you that extra little push to get back on track!
Do you have an abundance of sports medals hiding in a drawer or closet? Almost every 5k road race these days hands out a medal to finishers. Kids’ sports teams are often given trophies or medals at the end of the season. Whether earned running, swimming, biking, or kicking, this project is the perfect solution for displaying all those medals in a place of honor.
Well, I’m a day late and a dollar short on posting this week’s update, but I figured it’d be better to wait a day and have a quality post rather than rush to complete it last night and wind up posting a less-than-my-best post. Week 3 of the One Room Challenge has come and gone, and it was a busy one! In addition to making headway in the office space, I baked a large quantity of red velvet cupcakes from scratch for a fiftieth birthday party, baked and decorated a cute fire truck cake for (and attended!) a two-year old boy’s birthday party, and made a pretty awesome late birthday gift for his big sister, which I plan to share on the blog next week.
Wow! This week has really flown by! It’s been an incredibly busy week, and I’ve only had 12-14 hours of time to devote to Week 2 of the One Room Challenge and the office/craft room in the past 7 days.
Almost two hundred other bloggers and I are in Week 2 of the six-week One Room Challenge, and lots of progress is being made by many! You can visit Calling it Home to see what the others are up to. For me, Week 2 was a bit challenging as a result of a very condensed amount of time being available to work, but some changes were made nonetheless.
