Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop #90

I'm still reeling from the news in Connecticut, my dear friends. I can't fathom how such a thing can happen to all those beautiful children. That morning, I took off from work to attend Princess Two's holiday concert at school. You can just imagine the "high" all excited parents exhibited (including me) when they saw all the kindergarteners perform on stage. I went back to work feeling happy with all the cute pictures I took and the video I recorded. At a later time, this shocking news broke, and the day wasn't cheerful anymore. It hit close to home after seeing the little ones at school so innocent and adorable. I can't imagine how the victims' families feel this Christmas and my prayers are with them. That's a parent's worst nightmare and I hope that no such thing will happen again. As a parent, I can't bear the thought of seeing that Christmas stocking for a child who won't be there anymore to open up the goodies on Christmas day. I'm sorry to open up this party on such a sad note but I hope you understand.

Now back to our party.

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, either via Google Friend Connect or Linky Followers, 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.

Now, let's party like no other!

  7. Thanks for hosting today. I imagine all of us are tearfully trying to understand what happened. I cannot imagine being a parent in that community. Christmas will be different for each person in Newtown, but I think for all of us (on a smaller scale). CT will be remembered.
