    I was thrilled that your DIY painted acorn string was easily located and gave complete instructions. I subscribe to Earth 911 and usually just have time to read it. The Nov 8 email had your acorns pictured. I clicked and it took me to their page about 12 new DIY fall foliage crafts. You were #3. I started with the first one and by the second one I was getting p.o.’d. I spent 30 minutes before I gave up looking. Some folks don’t want to share if you don’t tell them your life story first. I love your site. I love your autobiographies. I’ll be back.ReplyCancel

  • BrittnayWednesday, May 18, 2016 - 2:39 pm

    I stumbed upon your site while looking up DIY swinging beds, I definitely think it was of the Lord. It’s so rare to find positive people/sites online that are crafty yet not pushing something. I’m non-denominational, I believe in sharing the love of Christ and you ladies do it in a way that isn’t pushy, but rather a hey this is who we are. I really admire that. Keep up the excellent work!!ReplyCancel

      Thanks so much Brittnay! And so glad you found us! 🙂ReplyCancel

    Hi ladies.
    I’m sooooo excited I found you on Pinterest. I just love your style, it’s everything I want my home to be like.
    And I love even more that you love Jesus; I’ve never found a style blog like yours that also openly shares a love for Jesus. I’m a fan for life!ReplyCancel

    • MandaTuesday, September 27, 2016 - 9:46 pm

      Thanks so much Jojo! So glad you’re enjoying our site and what we share. It’s so encouraging to see comments like this and know that others appreciate our work as well as see our love for Jesus coming through in what we share as well. Glad to you have reading along!ReplyCancel

    Hi girls:)
    I came across your blog by looking for a hanging table. Your blog is very cute, love your style and have same love for God. May God continue blessing you all!!!
    I was wondering if I can purchase the hanging table from you? Or where can I find a similar one? Please pleas let me know.
    Thanks so much!ReplyCancel

    • MandaTuesday, August 15, 2017 - 9:32 am

      Thanks for the kind words Larisa! We just sent you an email regarding the hanging table!ReplyCancel

    I love what you do. I am a christian from Chile, mom of 4, a lawyer. I like crafts, but I dont have much time.
    I loved the hanging lounge chair, that I first saw at Better Home and Gardens.
    My best to you¡

    Hi Manda,
    I’m in the process of trying to build your awesome DIY Plywood Daybed. I had a question regarding the frame portion of the bed that would help clarify a step of the process for me. You stated to cut 2 long front and back prices to build the frame. Are you supposed to have two short pieces as well, so that the frame is a full rectangle? Or should it look more like a ladder with the two long pieces and the cross pieces in between with no end pieces? I’m not sure if this question makes sense. Let me know. Thank you so much for this creative and fun idea for a twin bed!ReplyCancel

    • MandaFriday, November 24, 2017 - 9:42 pm

      Hi Anna, the frame is a full rectangle – we cut 8 crosspieces and two of those were the ends of the frame. Hopefully that helps! 🙂ReplyCancel

    Happy crafting!ReplyCancel
