Photo-a-day Linky Party - February

Who's ready to party!?

Oh good!... I am MORE then ready to have some fun flipping through lots of your monthly roundup photos and thoughts, especially because this weekend has been SO crazy! We have had some super sick little kiddos, and then at the last minute decided to hop right into a big new DIY project... My Office!

Yes, we're crazy... and No, our master bathroom STILL isn't done. Gah!
I know, I know! It's really just too hard to focus on ONE project, when you have about a TRILLION other creative ideas floating around in your head! (please someone agree with me).
If you are totally confused about how we operate here at The House of Smiths, then I'll make it simple for you:
Any project that seems cooler, funner or more exciting at the time, will ALWAYS come before anything else... even if that means abandoning one thing, to work on another.
Creative ADD... It's a real thing, people.

Anyway... more on the start of our office makeover and introduction to 'The Basement' later, let's talk February photos!
This month seemed to fly by, don't you agree!? At one point I was behind a whole day and didn't even know it until one of my Instagram followers called me out. doh! But in the end I gathered all 29 photos...whew!
Now it's YOUR turn to show off your creative fun photos, so link up below!

Remember: If you don't want to share every photo you took this month... then don't!, if you can't take a picture EVERY day... then no worries!
We are mostly just hoping that this linky party really becomes a place where you can share more about YOU, and something special, cool, exciting or meaningful that you captured this month! So don't get hung up on having a specific amount of photos, just share what you can :)

Also, if you want a list of suggested photo topics for March, you can see them here.

Happy Linking!


  1. Thanks for showing us again. I follow you in Instagrams but it's still great to see how you put them all together! You are so creative!!

  2. I got behind a few times but in the end I only missed one photo! Not too bad for my first try. :)

    I can't WAIT to see what you do with your office. Love those doors.

  3. Ummm, yeah. I know exactly what you mean. I call it Project ADD or PADD. lol Sometimes I can't even start a project because I can't decide what to do!
    Can't wait to see how the office turns out. :)

  4. Seriously Shelley! We may have been separated at birth. HA!! Okay, not really, but I DO agree with you that it is hard to focus on one project when you have a million ideas floating around in your head. I think I have missed the voting round for The Homies :(, but I will double check. You deserve it!!
