::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:

~Julia daydreamed about a charming Beach House with Blue Shutters. Perfectly styled!

~Read about 10 Ways to Promote Other Blogs over at CrafterMinds.

~Beckie shared a great tutorial on how to create your own Decorated Flip Flops.

~Meri wrote about some excellent ideas on putting together a  Travel Journal for Kids. Love this!

~This cool Pegboard Wall Art over at His and Hers made me smile. I wonder if kids know what rotary phones are these days...maybe I will test my children.

~Do you have any Upstairs Friends? Trust me, you want to read this one...Kimba offers some excellent things to ponder.


~And me? This week featured:

Silhouette Electronic Cutting Tool



    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!

    Tomorrow is Natalie's big end of the year ballet recital. She is so excited to wear her fancy costume and work her solo! I think it will be hard to keep Byrdie from rushing the "stage" to dance with her big sister, but we'll do our best to restrain her.

    What are you up to this weekend?


    Hope to be back this weekend with some highlights from Weekend Bloggy Reading!

    Thanks Amanda! Have a great weekend! I was just telling my husband this morning that when our daughter is old enough we are definitely putting her in dance. I've always dreamed about having a little dancer! :)

    Nadir@StitchSense said...

    Oh I love the travel journal! What a cool idea :-) And I love the vintage feel to the pegboard art, there's so many options you could do with that! :-) Hope you have a great weekend!

    Krista said...

    Thanks for hosting, Amanda! Good luck to your daughter. We're planting flowers on Saturday, and then Sunday there is a cookout we're invited to. And tonight I am going out with my playgroup mom friends! Should be a good weekend.

    Thanks for hosting! I've enjoyed your weekend parties but this is my first time participating. :) I'm off to check out the other linkies!

    Thanks for hosting again. How cute about your daughter and her recital...good luck keeping your little one from rushing the stage:-) Pics please!!!!!

    Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

    Loved Kimba's post. I definitely have downstairs-only friends, so I could relate. Ha. Just this week someone stopped by and I thought, "I'm glad I have a two-story house because I'd hate for her to see what the bedrooms look like right now!" :)

    P.S. Thanks for the link love!

    #28-- about the first date. HYSTERICAL!!! I'm so glad you host this party :-).

    Meri said...

    Thanks for featuring the kiddos' journals this week! It was a really fun thing to put together for them. Love the weekend "party" I get so many good ideas (and some laughs ;)) from all the contributors :D

    Rivki Locker (Ordinary Blogger) said...

    Thanks for another great roundup. Love that travel journal for kids. Just in time for summer!

    Erin said...

    You're so sweet for mentioning my pegboard phone project! I hope you have a wonderful weekend...and you're probably right about the rotary phones; they'd be awfully difficult to text on for kids these days! :)

    Janet said...

    Great features! I also loved Kimba's post on upstairs and downstairs friends. Have a nice weekend Amanda. :)

    Debbie said...

    I always gets inspiration around here! Hope you are having a great weekend.

    Thanks for hosting, and I hope you get to do something this weekend besides checking out all the links (though that's fun, too)!

    Thanks for hosting! I'm having a lot of fun looking through all these projects.

    Hope the ballet recital went well for Natalie. I know she was precious in her costume. I'll be coming your way on June 18th for my niece's recital.

    Thanks for hosting and enjoy the weekend!
