Linky Love

in DIY Day,Sponsors

Holy Jingle Bells! There were over 300(!!!) posts linked up to DIY Day this week! Y’all are crazy! A couple of quick things before I share my faves…

Did you miss my unplanned Sunday night post about a cheap Christmas gift idea? If so, check it out. Amazon is having a killer sale on some popular magazine titles. $5.00 for a 1 year subscription! These prices are only good through tomorrow, so be quick!

I’m probably annoying the crud out of you by talking about my eBook again. But I guess it’s my blog to wreck up if I want to. If you’ve been thinking about downloading a copy, then now is the time! Christmas is creeping up so quickly this year.

If you want to see more details about the projects inside, then check out this post.

Now, back to the Linky Love. I hardly knew where to begin this week, but here are a few of my faves from DIY Day and from around the world-wide interweb.

You’ve highlighted some of my favorites! It’s nice to think that you like some of the same things I like. Makes me feel like I have good taste. πŸ™‚

Thank you so much for your linky love posts and your DIY Day recap posts. I know there’s no way in the world you could ever visit every entry to DIY Day (unless you quit your wife-and-mother job, which is probably not quite in keeping with making your home a soft place). But it’s so nice when you give us a Readers’ Digest Condensed Version–and it’s so nice for the recipients of the linky love to get singled out by Kimba!

Have a great weekend!

Congrats to the winner…I was a little late adding something but be sure and check it out because it is really a quick and delish recipe.

Love seeing all the other bloggers with all the great talent!

Holy Jingle Bells is right!!!!!!! I was featured on your blog again?!!! Woo Hoo! Thanks, Kimba, for featuring my cute little chalk house on your awesome blog!! Your viewers gave me lots of ideas on what I could do with the unsightly electrical outlet under the playhouse window.
Blessings to you sweet blogging sister:)

How fun! Like you, I’m finding lots of inspiration for next year. And now I’m seriously restraining myself from doing any more projects-but I still love all this great inspiration!

Thanks for featuring my project too! I’ve already moved my jars to another spot and they look even better! and I added some Epsom salt to the jars for “snow”
