Since I have started TUTORIALS TIPS AND TIDBITS I guess I am extra aware of all the creative DYI”S in bloggland. Not only that, but great tips and tidbits too! 
Just today I learned how to transfer a beautiful french motif onto a painted surface, got helpful tips for making a centerpiece and found many fun tidbits along the way!
I am finding so many easy, well written Tutorials for all kinds of interesting projects… big and small!
And I have been inviting everyone to join me and show off what they have been doing! If you haven’t gotten a personal invitation from me… this is it! Join in!!!!
I wish I could show you every entry from last week.. like Show-And-Tell… they were more than fabulous!!! Since, I can’t, here are a few features…

Isn’t this table full of SWEET LAVENDER breathtaking? Poppy at WITH A DASH OF COLOR shows us how to make some heavenly scented projects!
Patricia, and her daughter, at BUTTER YUM taught us how to make scrumptious homemade GNOCCHI.
There is something so satisfying about making homemade pasta! Doesn’t that photo tell a story!
This Tutorial from Jennifer at TOWN AND COUNTRY LIVING is particularly helpful to me…  I have 4 stools tops that need some pretty  graphics. Her very detailed Tutorial HOW TO TRANSFER GRAPHICS WITH MOD PODGE is so easy to understand! Wait till you see the inside of the box!

    The white sink is in the laundry room, for the “hand wash” and this is where I keep my potatoes, onions and some fruit. Our laundry room is right in back of the our kitchen! Thank you for your wonderful comments dear Ivonne!

    You ladies are really rockin’ it with your tips and tutorials!!! I’ve learned a lot! LOVE that door makeover!!! It looks so fresh! The armoire painted that barn door red is cool, too!!! I have to admit, though, that when I saw the gnocchi, my mind immediately went to “Godfather, Part III” when Andy Garcia and Sofia Coppola’s characters were making it. Yowza!!!!! 😉
