Announcement!

Friends, it is with some sadness I tell you that I've decided to retire our weekly link party. We've been doing this little party every week for awhile (years?) and I've always enjoyed being inspired by your talents. More than once, I've left here ready to tackle a new craft project, a yummy recipe or an exciting DIY. But, I'm finding it harder and harder to devote the time and attention that this party (and you!) deserve.

Maybe one day, when I have more time of my hands (ha!) or I'm a better manager of my limited time (double ha!), I'll bring this fun party out of retirement! Until then, stay well, dear friends and keep creating! I'll still be doing my own projects and recipes and posting them here. So, don't be a stranger!
