Welcome to July! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are finding creative ways to beat the heat. Around here, we are staying busy (but not necessarily cool!) with our newest project: our new house! Because where would we remodelaholics be without a new old house to remodel? 😉
It is definitely going to keep us busy, but I will do my best to share updates here as I can. Thank goodness for our awesome contributor team and our amazing guests who can help give you your daily dose of DIY while we are busy ripping out carpet… and everything else. If you want to keep up on the play by play of the remodel and other tidbits, be sure that you follow me over on Instagram — you can follow our blog account at @remodelaholic or I’ve created a personal account @cassandjustin if you want to follow our family adventures.
On the blog, our big thing last month was Headboard Week! But since most of it was actually in July, I’m going to save the recap for next month’s post and just send you over here to check out all of the great features, inspiration, tutorials, and link-ups 🙂
And, in preparation for our new home projects — because research is so important in any venture, right? — we checked out our local Parade of Homes. I shared a few of the pictures from my favorite homes here, but I hope to share more soon (and I’ve been sharing a bunch over on Instagram, too). This one has been really popular:

One of our favorite places to find great tutorials and bloggers is at our weekend link parties — if you don’t already, we’d LOVE to have join us! You can link up to 3 of your awesome projects, and each week we have a loose “theme” that we choose our features from. This month, we featured:
We introduced some new contributors this month (and we have some more lovely and talented ladies next month, too! We <3 our contributors!) Check out their posts, and go follow their blogs, too, for SO much DIY goodness.
And our regular and fabulous returning contributors shared fabulous projects, too!

She believes that planning projects and actually completing them are two different hobbies, but that doesn't stop her from planning at least a dozen projects at any given time. She spends her free time creating memories with her husband and 5 kids, traveling as far as she can afford, and partaking of books in any form available.
