::Weekend Bloggy Reading:: Link Up!

Welcome to Weekend Bloggy Reading! I hope you'll check out a few of my favorite posts from around Blogland this week, and be sure to link up the best post of the week from YOUR blog.

The twist for this week is that by sharing your link here, you automatically get an extra entry in this week's Giveaway for a 3 month Ad Spot on this blog along with an Ad Button Design from Designer Blogs.

**In order to be eligible, I'm asking that you please link back to me here OR include my party button within your post. Whichever way you prefer is okay! I don't request this out of vanity. Linking back is a basic blogging courtesy. To share the love and spread the word about the party, I ask for a simple link back or blog button in your post. Thanks, and I'm hopping off the soap box now!**

Here are some of my faves from this week:
Sources listed below

~Holly made a Ballard Knock-Off Laptop Bag and hosted a Knock-Off Party.

~Mom in High Heels showed readers how she created an Explorer-Themed Room for her son Indy. Love!

~Emily shared her thoughts on How to Live Big. Are you a rule-follower too?

~Amy's Valentine's Project for Little Ones is sure to be a big hit!

~And moi?
This week, I Stayed Home while T went to Vegas and I made a Valentine's Tinsel Heart Wreath. I also hosted a little Bliss-at-Home Project for bloggers like myself who couldn't make it to the Blissdom conference this year. My 3 month Ad Spot and Ad Button Giveaway are still open! Click over to find more chances to win.

Time to link up your best post of the week (please, please include a link-back or my party button!)
Here's the button code if you'd prefer to use that rather than a link-back:
Weekend Bloggy Reading

Party is open until 10 pm (ET) on Sunday night.

Remember that blog parties work best when bloggers participate, so if you have a chance to visit a few of the other links, you might find a new friend or two!

I have a Blessings Unlimited party tonight (weather permitting) and hoping for a chance to relax the rest of the weekend.

{What are you up to this weekend?}


  1. Thanks for hosting the party. I hope you don't mind me linking my "Fitness Friday" to your party since it isn't decorating or crafting. I'm hoping that a few people who don't read my blog may find it through yours.

    I'm off for the third day in a row. Woo-Hoo! I've been working on organizing my sewing room all week and just may finish it today.

    Have fun at your party tonight. I hope that you have great sales!

  2. Not linking up a crafty post, just one about men, and what babies they can be. ;) Good luck with your party tonight, I hope that weather holds out for you! :)

  3. Wowzers! Thanks for the shout out! There aren't many boy rooms in the blogosphere and I'm thrilled you mentioned Indy's.
    Have a great weekend.

  4. Hi Amanda! Thanks again for hosting! I love the places you suggest we visit this weekend! Some really great ones! I loved Holly's bag too when I saw it on her blog. And she did it up so quick!

    I know you missed being at Blissdom this week... :( So sorry you couldn't go...I meant to comment on your post for your gathering the other day but its been a little nuts around here this week and I didn't get a chance. I am SO sorry! It looks like it was such fun!

    This weekend I am going to be lower back seems to have given here I sit with a heating pad hoping it feels better soon...I think my body is just tired for some reason...LOL.

    Have a great party this weekend!! See you later, friend!

    Building Home with Him,

    Mary Joy

  6. Hey girlfriend! This week has been a blur. Between my MIL's retirement party, my mantel workshop, and BBC's birthday I'm pooped! We sent him to his grandmother's this weekend and I'm running to my best friend's to have a girl weekend.

    Hope your party holds and goes well!

    Have a blessed weekend!

  7. Thanks for featuring me and my party, Amanda!

  10. Like Rachel said, this is my first time linking to a party - new blogger here. Thank you so much for hosting!


  11. I love your blog...thanks for hosting. I am following from

  12. Thanks for hosting this blog party. Although my blog is not about decorating or anything that you can really learn from (well...unless you want to learn how to survive in a house full of children!) but I get so inspired by all the neat blogs that link up to you; the creativity is amazing, and I'm hoping one day soon I get around to doing something up in my own house, or some kind of craft that I can share. So keep the blog parties coming :)
    Have a great weekend!

  13. What fun weekend reading! Thanks for hosting! Silly me literally just typed my name when it asked rather than the name of the post. Oh well, I'm fashion smart, not necessarily for real smart.

  14. I loved your Valentine's Day wreath! Those plantable Valentines were too cute too!

  15. I love linking up with your fun bloggy party!

  16. Hi Amanda! I'm new here, and just linked up -- thanks for hosting. I jumped over from Organize it! blog.

  17. Thanks for hosting this party!

  18. Oh, I'm all about Valentines projects for little ones! I'm going to check it out!

  19. You're such a doll to feature my project! Thanks so much!

  20. I was just out surfing the web and came across your site. What a great idea to host a party! I love it and am bookmarking your site. This weekend I've dedicated to reading a new book I just picked up called "Major Dream: From Immigrant Housemaid to Harvard
    Ph.D." (author Jin Kyu Robertson Ph.D.) I'm going to be inspired...we create our own destiny! I just love determined women.


I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
