::Weekend Bloggy Reading:: Link Up!

Welcome to Weekend Bloggy Reading. I hope you'll link up your best post of the week today, and maybe leave me some comment love!

All kinds of posts are welcome--recipes, crafts, funny stories, home decor, etc.; but please do not link to Etsy shops, businesses, items for sale, etc. (I have a Sponsors section, if you'd like to Advertise with me.)

Here are a few of my faves from this week:

sources listed below

~Carmen worked her magic with a Memo Board Makeover.

~If you haven't stopped by the Crafterminds site yet, you are missing out. Whether you are a craft blogger or not, they have excellent advice for growing your blog. A recent guest post on 5 Ways to Grow Your Blog showed a lot of insight!

~Do you fear going bold with color? Kate's tips for Injecting Color are for you (and me!).

~Jen updated her 4 Seasons Wall with Spring Specimen Wall Art.

~Are you a Perfectionist Procrastinator? Let Amy encourage you today.

~Kim made a Nook/E-Reader Cover, and she'll show you how to make one too.

~And me?
I showed you a little Dressertop Makeover in my girls' room, and received a great response from the 3rd session in my Commenting 101 series: How to Leave a Good Comment. Wednesday post, Fashion Show Practice, highlighted a wildly hilarious Tom Hanks video that is worth clicking over for. Yesterday, we commiserated over some Consumerist Highs and Lows.

Time to link up your best post of the week (please take the time to include a link-back or my party button and visit some of the other participants!)

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!

My sis and niece are back in town this weekend, and I'm hoping to spend some time with them as well as get the house in shape for something I'm hosting next week...more on that later.

{What are you up to this weekend?}

Back this weekend with some Saturday Shopping and highlights from Weekend Bloggy Reading!

  1. Hi sugar!
    My solution to staying sane is organizing something! You had some good posts this week-- I think I read every one--I can't say that about every friend's blog :)
    Please have a wonderful, blessed weekend! I am going to organize my pantry next ;)
    Can't wait to see what you're up to next week!
    HUGS to you!

  2. Thanks for hosting this blog party, Amanda, it's fun to see what others have been up to throughout the week.

    We are going to enjoy the {hopefully} nice weather with a bbq and spend some time with friends who will be moving away soon. I always have a list of projects to clean, organize or make.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Hi Amanda,

    Thank you so much for hosting. I know it's a lot of work and I really appreciate it.


  4. Amanda, thank you for hosting this great blog party again this week! You always find the best reads to highlight and I love seeing what you bring each week! Keep up the good work...oh, and I am lusting in my heart over that drive thru...just saying!

  5. Thanks for featuring me! :) I was going to link up my post that I was a new jewelry consultant but I guess that counts as a business. So I won't. ;)

  6. Wow! Thanks for the shout-out for the e-reader. What a nice Friday surprise (and a gloomy Friday at that).

    Happy weekend!

  7. Thank you for hosting Amanda! I'm going to visit other links now :)

  8. Thanks for hosting Amanda! I can't wait to check out that Nook cover. I need one of those for my oldest. Have a good weekend!

  9. Hi, Amanda! I am a new follower. Excuse me while I grab a second cup of coffee and peruse your blog a while! (:

  10. I'm totally a perfectionist procrastinator! I'll have to check that one out for sure.

  11. Amanda, you bless my heart so much to know you are enjoying my posts! Thank you so much!

  12. Happy weekend Amanda!!! I linked up one from Truly Lovely and one from my wedding blog! ;) Have a fun Friday!

  13. I enjoyed reading:

    -Your post on leaving good comments
    -5 ways to grow your blog (even though I'm not crafty, I think it had a lot of good points)
    -Perfectionist procrastinator

    I'll try to check out some more this weekend.

    P.S. As always, thanks for hosting the party, Amanda.

  14. Thanks for the shout out on my new Spring Wall project Amanda! I am loving the dresser top redo. So cool! I am excited to check out the other links!


  15. Thank you for hosting this party. Following and going to post your button on our new blog!

    I'll be back after the little ones(who aren't so little anymore) are asleep to check out the links.

  16. I LOVE the post on injecting color!

    She spotlighted some BEAUTIFUL rooms that I am totally GREEN with envy over!

    Good thing green is one of my favorites!

  17. Hi Amanda,

    I like the dresser top redo! I still need to read the commenting post - I'll add that to my weekend blog reading!

    Thanks for hosting. I linked up my best post from this week but it wasn't home decor or crafting - just good news that I feel like telling anyone who will listen! :)

  18. Thanks for hosting the party, I've just linked up for the first time.

  19. Thanks for hosting the party and for adding my link. I'm looking forward to visiting as many as I can.

    Enjoy your time with your sister. Your niece will be an flying expert by kindergarten at the rate she's going!

  20. Yay, thanks for the shindig, Amanda. I like the spirit of your party... it's very friendly! Have a great weekend... ~ osc

  21. Thanks for hosting the party! I've already found a few projects to try and several others to share with friends and family.

  22. Hi Amanda-

    Love your project pics over at Centsational Girl. Found a few blogs I have never been to before - love to find new inspiration.
    Hope you had a fun weekend with your sis and getting your hair cut.
    My best- Diane

  23. Amanda, I cannot believe it has taken me this long to get over here and follow you! Love your dressertop makeover - so pretty! Cannot wait to check out the post on commenting - I am always up for others ideas and opinions on that and bloggy etiquette.


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! :)
