Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop 12.11.11

Happy Sunday, my dear friends! I'm so thankful for all of you that are joining us in another week of creativity showoff :)

I attended 5 holiday parties this past week and as a result, I'm so poofed :{ More parties in the next days ahead leading up to Christmas and even if I feel so fatigued after all these events, I feel grateful to have have family and friends to celebrate this season with.

For those of you who emailed me, I'm still wading through hundreds of them so just be patient if I don't answer you promptly enough. I'm juggling with all my responsibilities right now and whatever is about to fall seems to be the one that gets caught up first. Know that you who have left positive comments really brightened up my hectic week and you who have visited, please also know that I appreciate it so much.

Blog Tip
Have you reached the point where you feel like your creative streaks are ebbing? Cindy Adkins' Amazing Art Adventure FREE Seminar will help you get in touch with your artistic soul and share it with others.

Favorite Blog
You clicked, inlinkz tallied. The readers' favorite blog post this past week, being the most viewed post, is Dixie Delights' DIY Pottery Barn Tree Garland post. Very much in keeping with the festive season.

Our Party
To the main course of this post.
For those of you joining us for the first time, we only have 2 easy, simple rules:

1) Link up your creative post - can be a DIY project, decor, photography, crafts, recipes, poem, thrift finds, link party, or that informative syndicated post that can make us laugh, or cry - in short, whatever you're proud of! And if you like to link more creative posts, go for it! We'd love to see them :) (No links to businesses or giveaways. We have another party for these exclusively every Tuesday called Market Your Biz & Giveaways at 5 pm, PST.)

2) Follow as many blogs as you desire, preferably starting first with the one who linked before you and after you, before branching out, and let them know by leaving a comment. (Following me will be very much appreciated, and I definitely follow back. Just let me know you're following.)

Displaying the party button on your blog, while optional, is very much appreciated :) It will help you remember to come back and link up to the the happiest blog party on the block (ahem!). It will also help others find their way to the party which we all love because the more the merrier :)

Link opens up every Sunday at 5:00 pm, PST and ends Friday at 11:59 pm.

Friends, go ahead and get to know each :) One followed blogger is one gained friend. And please, don't forget to join my Market Your Biz and Giveaways blog party every Tuesday at 5 pm, PST. It's your chance for free promotion of your family-friendly business and giveaways.

Burning question: In your current list of priorities, what rank is blogging in your life?

My number 1 priority is my family. Second is my full-time job. My home improvement projects come in 3rd. Blogging is the 4th one. How about you? I'd love to hear.
