cute idea!

Ok so I don't know about you but I seriously love looking a home inspiration photos.  I search Flickr almost daily looking at cute home tours and such.  I was thinking it would be really cool to do a little home tour of all of our homes together!!!
What do you think?? Would you be in?
It would be like a blog tour of a home tour.
Here is how it would go down...
One week
One room per day?
You can link your blog in the comments section of the featured room post so that we can all check it out.  Just make sure to link my blog on your posts!!
I'll go ahead and post the schedule now because if you are like me, some cleaning needs to be done before we take these pictures :) lol!

Monday:  Living Room

Tuesday:  Kitchen

Wednesday:  Spare bedroom/Child's bedroom

Thursday:  Master bedroom

Friday: Studio/Office space

Saturday:  Bathroom

Sunday:  Back yard/ (in my case, balcony)

Now, I know that all of us don't have all of those rooms in our home.  For example, I do not have a spare bedroom and I don't have a child's bedroom either.  In this situation, I think it would  be cool to substitute  in something else, for example a favorite corner, an entry way, etc.

Why I think this challenge is a great idea :D :
1.  It will challenge us to blog every day for a week
2. You already know what you are going to blog about so you don't have to think of an idea
3.  A great way to bring new traffic to your blog
4.  A great way to share and gather new home inspiration!!
5.  It's a great way to document what your house looks like at this time in your life...
Are you in??  If so, leave me a comment on this post!!!
Also, if you are in, share the idea on your blog so we can get more people to participate with us :)
