Hello there my blog loving friends. Ready for a Linkup Party?How is your Thursday going? Well, mine’s going too fast, and if you happen to have kids in your family, you probably know what I mean. Tomorrow is a class party day and guess who hasn’t quite gotten it together yet? ME.
My daughter’s birthday happens to fall on Valentine’s Day so this is a double whammy in our house. I’ve been asked to bring some mini cupcakes to celebrate the birthday during lunch AND some more to add to the party in the afternoon, because it’s just not cool to consolidate it when all your other friends get a birthday moment to themselves. This day has been a “hard sell” for us for 8 years now. 6 of those years, I owned a bakery that was MOBBED for Valentine’s Day every year and so each year a certain little girl had to work her birthday celebration around mommy’s crazy schedule. I always managed to sprint away from the shop in time to help with the class party though and we would spend the evening celebrating with dinner at her favorite places, just to make sure she knew she was a priority. Since the shop closed, I have been able to put more effort into planning, so I don’t have any more excuses in her book. Ironically this year, we are having a baking party – in someone else’s kitchen – so I get to sit back and watch next week. Hope I don’t have any weird flashbacks, lol.
Enough about all that. Let’s see what featured posts are in the spotlight this week for our Make and Mingle Linkup Party…
Sunburst mirrors are on trend right now, but if you’ve peeked at the tags in the store, they aren’t cheap! Well Savvy Apron shared a wonderful DIY Sunburst Mirror project that is sure to save you some serious cash, and you won’t believe what she used! Genius…
I love printable projects. They are one of the easiest and most affordable ways to add art to a space, and make wonderful gifts when you find a printable that seems to be MADE for someone you know. Well Aspen Jay shared a William Shakespeare Valentine Printable that would be lovely for most anyone, but I know a certain Fine Arts buff that would adore this, so she may just be getting a little surprise this Valentine’s Day from a friend. Her husband will be jealous he didn’t see it first.
You guys just keep my project list growing every week! So many things I want to try!
