Somebody Pinch Me ... please!

Feelin' groovy .... that's the best way I can describe how I'm feeling at the moment "groovy" ... may sound corny, but I am seriously feelin' groovy ... why so groovy? ... because I got my 'groove on' ... on and in the current issue of Artful Blogging! ... Of course my groove didn't happen by magic, it was inspired by Natasha Burns and her 'Revamp It Challenge' this past summer ... remember this post? ... I was feeling super silly posing for my after shots in bloomers? Well it was worth all the embarrassment and family jokes I had to put up with ... ha! look at Mom now kids! ... and yes, I will be saving the magazine for the future ... to show my grandchildren their Grandma 'back in the day, feelin' groovy' ... I'm sure we will have many more laughs over this one!

If you missed Natasha's Revamp it Party, she still has all of the participants links posted ... they are all worth taking a look at ... so many creative minds ... thank you Natasha for coming up with this challenge, it was a blast!

Well, I'm going to celebrate 'my groove' today ... enjoy yours!!


  1. I just read that issue and thought to myself, "isn't that Jill's revamp?" And I was right! Congratulations!

  14. Hi Jill, I had to go back to your original post, your revamps were absolutely...grooovy. love the bloomers, the old ones that I have seen have a little "convenience", could be a little airy at times. My grandma used to call them "split drawers". so funny!
    I wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the delightful surprise you sent! It was just filled with all kinds of awesome goodies, You are so sweet to put that together for us. What a treat!
    ooohhh, and the tissue paper is gorgeous, you are just a doll!
    hugs and blessings,

  15. You go you groovy Gypsy.....Loved your frilly drawers~lol
