::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! *Remember that if you link back to me in your post (with a text link or my party button), you'll get an automatic entry in the Harper's Hat Box Spring Giveaway. You can click that link for additional entries!

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.)

Announcement: I hope you'll join me on Monday morning for the next edition of the I {Heart} My Crafty Cutter link party. Come ready to share your best Silhouette/Cricut projects, tips, and tricks (feel free to link up stenciling and transfer paper projects as well)!

Here are a few of my faves from this week:

~Dawn made chalkboard coasters.

~Holly created a whimsical Easter tree.

~Beckie used cereal boxes to make a kids' art display.

~Want to make some map art? The Nester will show you how!

~Sandy shared some money-saving tips on growing a garden in the city

~And me?
I'm currently hosting a fabulous Spring Giveaway from Harper's Hat Box! If you link up to this party and link back to me (in your post please!), you'll get an automatic entry. The CSI Project also featured my EveryBunny's Welcome plaque, which was really cool. On Monday, I shared how I've added a few Easter touches to my home, and I also recapped my Girls' Craft Night. My Commenting 101 blogging series is still going strong. This week was Session #5, Commenting and Link Parties!

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!

Full disclosure here: We had a family tragedy yesterday and I may not be in town all weekend to visit links like I try to. I'm going to do my very best, and I thank you for understanding!

What are you up to this weekend?

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

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! :)
