Under $100 Link Party

Ah, here we are, another week gone by.  How did you spend the last week?  Mine seems to have been a whirlwind--a basketball tournament out of town, some sunstitute teaching, and a whole lot of getting ready for a show this weekend.

I have decided the week before a show I go through four stages: 1.) I tell myself I don't want to do the show, I should cancel. 2.) I feel good and positive, think I will have plenty of stuff and am in good shape.  3.) PANIC 4.) I say, "What the heck, it is what it is, it will all work out."  

Today I am still in stage 3, but quickly heading to stage 4.  Can anyone relate?

While you ponder the stages, enjoy looking at some of these lovely links from last week:

Nautical inspired picture "frames" from Homeroad.
nautical frames DIY
Junk 4 Joy's fry basket light--awesome!
Hope and Salvage's "quilted" table top
See Shell Space's salvaged wood arrows
Making a reclaimed wood tool box from Funky Junk Interiors

Under $100 Link Guidelines:

1. Please link to the specific post, not your blog!
2. Please only post home decor ideas that cost $100 or less--it would be great if you share the cost of your project, but not necessary.  Only share current projects, i.e. from the last 3 months.
3. Please include a brief description in link up.
4. Grab my blog button on the sidebar and include it in your post or a link to Beyond The Picket Fence so people can find you and more great ideas.
5. Please check and make sure your link works. If it doesn't you can delete it and try again.
6. Please no direct links to sales sites, i.e. ETSY or just a plain ol' commercial site, we are looking for inexpensive ideas we can recreate--YOUR ideas, NOT roundups of other's work!
7.  Please do NOT link up the same thing week after week--keep it fresh
8.  PLEASE visit the link and repin from the blog. not here--thanks!

Have fun--I am looking forward to your links!


  1. I can appreciate your being so real... I understand completely!! Yes, I am much the same way... I am preparing for a ministry engagement for Friday night... I am in the last stage.. it will all work out at this point... I am depending on God to just let me be a blessing to the ladies.. I pray your show goes well.. Blessings!

  2. Oh my that Susan Homeroad is so cute. I love your picks, Becky.

  3. I spend some time in Stage #3 every single month!! Where I sell my junk is open only 4 days a week. In between, I teach, write and try to keep on top of life. I so get it!! Thank you for putting up the party despite the craziness coming up for you!

  4. Wonderful features, Becky! Thanks so much for the party. I know the show will be great :)


  5. You must have sun on your mind. You said you had done some "sun" stitute teaching! Lol. Good luck w' your show. I hope you've advanced to stage 4, you do great stuff. Nothing to panic about.

  6. Thank you for hosting a great party!

  7. I'm not linking up this week because I don't have anything new. But I wanted to add you button to my link directory, I cannot seem to locate it. Thanks for hosting it's a great link up.

  8. I can totally relate to the panic mode! At my house I simply say, "Don't expect anything out of me for the next week while I'm creating." Thank God for patient families. It all comes together in the end doesn't it? Thanks for hosting another great party Becky.

  9. HaHa, you're funny! Here's to miving on to stage 4! Hope you have a great show and thanks for the party:)

  10. Becky, Thanks so much for featuring my "quilted" table top on your Picket Fence blog. I feel very honored. Thanks also for giving us novices a party to showcase our craft. Best wishes for your show. My sister tells me I skip Stage 3 and go directly to 4. [She needs glasses]


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
