Ultimate Blog Party ’11

Hey y’all!  I’m so excited that you’re here for the party!  If you are new to My Blessed Life, welcome to my home in blogland! Have a seat and I’ll grab some sweet tea for you. :)

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

I’m Myra, I’m married to my childhood sweetheart and we have a sweet lil’ man who is now 2 years old.

{I adore these boys!}

I want to inspire you to have a peaceful heart and a beautiful home. I love to share my crafts, DIY projects and repurposed thrift store finds. I also love to share recipes that I come up with for my family.

{Click the pictures below to see all my DIY projects and Recipes!}

I recently fulfilled a dream and passion of mine by launching my home decor blog – The Casabella Project. My husband and I are renovating and updating our 1950s home… “making it beautiful, one project at a time.”

We just finished updating our guest bathroom and I’m just tickled pink with how it turned out!

One of my other favorite projects is the board and batten we installed in the living room!

Well, that’s enough about me!  I want to hear about you!

Leave a comment, so I can stop by your blog. :)

I would love to connect with you!

    I am already a follower of your blog but wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how inspired I have been by your blog this past year. Not only because of your amazing crafts, DIY projects but because of your real & personal posts as well. Not to mention…you’re from the same area I grew up in too & we are both North AL gals!

    Hey Myra!

    Your blog is wonderful!
    I’ve been following your blog for a while now, Life just keeps me from commenting most of the time.
    But your blog party gives the perfect excuse to say “Yes, I’ll finally leave a normal comment today.” I love everything crafty, DYI and re-purposed – it’s a joy to read your blog and find so many lovely things and tons of inspiration!

    Thanks for the tea, really sweet! 😉

    Let’s get the party started :) I had a ton of fun last year as well and am sure this year will be no different (maybe only better! Haha!)

    DIY projects & recipes…always my favorite! You look so proud of your little family in that picture…I love it!

    Hola! and greetings from Guatemala! My name is Claudia and I’m a follower and daily reader of both “My Blessed Life” and the “Casabella Project” because, well, you inspire me! I am child-less, not married, and a full-time part of the workforce, but every spare moment I get, I spend coming up with something to make my home a cozier place. You know, little crafts, DIY projects (probably not as big as renovating a bathroom!!) and ideas that I get from bright minds like you and cool stores online that are not available locally.
    So thank you for sharing your projects and activities with all of us. I know it has change my life for the very best. Keep on the good work!!
    regards from sunny Guatemala,

    Hi. I really enjoy your blog, and it reminds me how blessed I am as well! You always seem to have a great idea for a DIY and an interesting tutorials.

    Last year, I was feeling I had not stretched myself creatively, and spent all my energy on my lessons, but had done nothing for myself. My blog, http://www.artofbeingcreative.blogspot.com, chronicles my creative bursts on energy. Please feel free to stop by!
