I'm blessed to have two fabulous bloggers as co-hosts this week. First is Alison at Oh My Vera who is in love with all things Vera Bradley. I never heard of Vera Bradley handbags and purses until we became bloggy friends (I know, you're now thinking what rock on earth I've been hiding all these years). Her passion of anything Vera is so infectious as evidently shown in her blog.
My second co-host is Jennifer from the Home Daybook. She loves to live creatively. You can see so many home decor posts in her blog. I'm amazed how she, being a teacher, gets the time to blog at the same time.
Ever wonder how to make your own blog button that you can proudly display? Linney has this tutorial on how to make your own cutest EVER blog buttons for FREE.
You clicked, inlinkz tallied. The readers' favorite blog post this past week out of 282 links, being the most viewed post, is this thrift store decorating post by Vibrant Serenity. She scored well on her thrift finds and turned a drab room into a fab one.
I'm happy to announce the winner of $25 Store Credit at Up Words and On Words by Carri at Redefining C. It's comment #25 - Chari. Congrats, Chari!
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 and the co-host will be very much appreciated, and we definitely follow back. Just let us 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!).
Link opens up every Sunday at 5:00 pm, PST and ends Friday at 11:59 pm.
Because I like something different, I'm using the reverse entry for inlinkz - so the most recent participant will show up as number 1, thus giving everybody a chance to have the #1 spot.
Friends, go ahead and mingle with one another :) Happy partying!
Burning question: Do you make your own blog button or do you hire/ask somebody to make one for you?
When I asked Kim to design my blog, I never had the faintest idea how to make a button. After learning how to use picnik, I tinkered with images so I eventually figured out how to make my 2 party buttons (this party and Market Your Biz and Giveaways). How about you?
