Best of January and What’s to Come

Howdy February!  This is an exciting month for me and the kiddos.  We are traveling back to the states to visit family for the first time since we’ve moved to Japan.  Hubby is still gone on a “trip” but he’ll be coming home right after we return.  I can’t wait to shop in my favorite stores and eat some TexMex.  The best part is my twin is having her first baby!  Woohoo!

Let’s take a look at what happened last month.

Best of January

The start of the year always kicks off with a Love Your Space Challenge but this year it was a little different.  We explored the decorating process behind Up to Date Interiors and the Love Your Space challenge with a Love Your Space 4 Week Series.  (I know, that’s a lot of LOVE!)love-your-sapce-series-collage

Week one:  A State of Mind

Week two:  Finding Inspiration

Week three:  Start with What You Have

Week 4:  Finishing Touches

Since the entire month wasn’t focused on a challenge this year I was able to participate in a New Year New Room Refresh with some other amazing ladies.  This week will be the final room review for some of us and more DIYs from others.  Make sure you come back tomorrow!

With the two series going on, I fell a little short in the DIY department.  My husband, however, created this amazing no-sew Teepee and I couldn’t turn down participating in another Create and Share challenge.

What’s coming next:

Up to Date Interiors is turning 3!  New e-decor services announcement and a giveaway later this week to celebrate.

2 new monthly challenges put together by Jess from Domicile37 and I encourage you to participate!! 12469514_1678935279054324_9081867036929515418_o12628382_1688231578124694_586617290377474118_o

Finally, I’m thrilled to be a part of Homemade by Carmona’s creative team this year.  We’ll be hanging out with her readers later this month.

Golly! That’s it for now.  Have a wonderful week and happy February 1st!
