Welcome: 31 Days of DIY for Busy Gals

You are a busy gal right?
You either work at home
blogging, caring for kids, cleaning and cooking
Or maybe you work outside the home
long hours
and then you come home and cook and clean
and maybe care for kiddos and puppy dogs.

I'm a work outside the home chick.
And not only that,
I don't even get to go home every night.

Case in point, 

I will be staying somewhere
other than home
at least 12 if not 15 days this month.
Crazy isn't the half of it.

I often wish I could stay home.
No, not just sleep at home,
but really stay home.
During the day.
And do nothing but DIY all day long.
I don't have kids.
We just let out lovely puppy mutt go.
I could get a lot accomplished.

But since I don't, I figured I would blog
for 31 days
about all of the awesome things you 
no matter if you're home or not
if you have 31 minutes
or 3 hours and 10 minutes
or 3 days and an hour.

We can get it done.

This 31 days of DIY for busy gals
will have quickie projects
mid range projects 
and longer projects.

Every last one of them will lead to a more
homey home
than that awesome builder grade stack of bricks
many of us are fortunate to call home.

I'll break my list down by time required
and I'll come back to this post at least once a week
to provide a handy dandy list of posts so you don't have to hunt them down.

If you click on this image
in any of my posts,
it will bring you back to this post
for a handy dandy landing spot.

Because I'm a busy gal,
most of my 31 days posts will post at 9 pm.
My regular blog posts happen at 6 am.
I'm going to challenge myself to do 2 (TWO!!)
posts a day.  

My regularly scheduled stuff
and the 31 days stuff.

Wish me luck.

Ready for some DIY busy gals?

Let's make it happen.

Here's a list of what may be to come.

I wanted to have some back up projects that I could do outside the house.
