Handmade Hangout #15 Features

Thank you to those who took the time to link up to last week's party, you helped make our party a success! But if you missed it, then you can always link up on Thursdays after 4 pm EST. 
It's always hard to choose features, but this week we're talking about budget home projects. There were so many ways you can fix up your home, that do not require the big bucks. Let's talk about a few of them. PS – if you’re featured, you’ll also get a pin on our Handmade Hangout pin board!  Woohoo!]  Are you ready?
