Lately at The Pin Junkie, Bonnie shares her preparations for her upcoming trip to Europe.

Naush blogs from Dubai at Doodle Buddies. She's found an inexpensive way to get canvas for her art projects, and recycle at the same time!

"I've been cleaning the garage and putting things where they belong, so this project was born out of that, organization!" confesses Cristina at Remodelando la Casa.
