*LINK-UP PARTY* (#15) @ Our House Of Joyful Noise & Featured from #14

& FEATURED Linkers !


Hi Folks!!

Tuesdays sure do sneak up quickly! Sometimes too quickly, for me.  I apologize for skipping the party last week, but life gets in the way of my blogging now and then, and I’ve got to be o.k. with that.  Family first around here.

I am still struggling, choosing features. Ugh! There’s always so many great creations and ideas, and there are some linkers I want to feature every-single-week. But I try to give everyone a chance too. I want to keep it light, fun & inspiring for everyone.  But in my head, I get into considering hurt feeling, repeating the same linkers, picture quality, etc. So just so you know, I’m working on it, and if you have any helpful suggestions or advice in choosing features, I’ll take it! Maybe I make it harder for myself than I need to. That’s entirely possible.  lol

As for me and my creative projects, I haven’t been putting out much finished pieces.  But that’s because I’ve been putting more time into prepping, for bigger projects to come. I’m looking for that balance every day, and our schooling will be picking up the pace in a big way, in just a few weeks.  While it would be nice to have that kind of blogging and creative project time that moms with kids in school do, I wouldn’t trade it for the family time we have, or the schooling that is such a part of my heart, and brings us all so much joy. So, I’m just going to keep tweaking my time management and share with you all, all I can!  It means the world to us, that you all come around. I WISH I could tell you all we have coming up in time for you but…time will tell. ; )

*Just one more quick and IMPORTANT note:  You all need to RE-SUBSCRIBE with us here, as we have an all new rss feed.  And if you haven’t been subscribed, you need to do THAT anyway of course! ; ) With it, comes a Give-Away, and news of another on the way, that looks like, smells like, and spends like….$$$! So click to to this post for minute, which will open in a new window, to subscribing, and get your name in for the Give-Away!

Alrighty now. Before we get to a new party, here’s the few features we chose, after visiting every link-up twice!

Adding elegance to elegance….

That’s what Beth from Unskinny Boppy managed.  While her dining room was being repainted, check out the revamp she gave her china cabinet!  I think it was a brave thing to do, but by golly, it works!


Getting organized early on, is a good start….

And a great way to kick off a new school year!  Which by the way Peeps, is right around a 1/2 corner, if you haven’t noticed!  So it’s time to get the kid’s school supplies shopped for and together.  Shannon at Family Brings Joy is making it a tad easier for you, with this free school supply list print out!  You can print 1 or more out right HERE, right now!


Imagine the pretty sound of tinkering spoons in the breeze…..

Or instead of imagining it, let your kids help with this clever & cute wind chime.  Julie at My Crazy Life…As a Mom and Wife, shows you how.




Again-We came, we saw, and we were INSPIRED!!

What creative projects have you banged out into lately? LAy it on the table Peeps, and show your hand! Grab your owl Ticket, and link up your inspiration for us all!

    Thank you for hosting! I just want to let you know that I had a difficult time navigating to this page. It took me a good 5 minutes or so to find your link party. 🙁

      I’m sorry to read that Katie. 🙁 The flash panels on the Home page display what section most recent posts are. But the best thing to do is to subscribe, so you have direct links to every post you are interested in. I hope that helps. I will email you in case you do not see this reply.
