Reevaluating Some Things and Some News!!

24 Apr
Hello my friends!
Some exciting things are happening in my little Tatertots world. I shared the fun blog hop that I am helping support. Please take a button and spread the word. There are some new sponsors and giveaways — click HERE for more details!
<br /> <img src=”http://www.brentriggs.com/images/diy2.jpg&#8221; width=”220″ height=”393″ border=”0″ usemap=”#Map” /><br /> <map name=”Map” id=”Map”><area shape=”rect” coords=”-10,276,225,389″ href=”http://www.itssoverycheri.com&#8221; target=”_blank”><br /> <area shape=”rect” coords=”67,230,218,248″ href=”http://whisperwoodcottage.blogspot.com&#8221; target=”_blank” /><area shape=”rect” coords=”52,215,169,231″ href=”http://tatertotsandjello.blogspot.com&#8221; target=”_blank” /><area shape=”rect” coords=”89,200,218,215″ href=”http://www.itssoverycheri.com&#8221; target=”_blank” /><area shape=”rect” coords=”83,185,156,198″ href=”http://504main.blogspot.com&#8221; target=”_blank” /><br /> <area shape=”rect” coords=”2,249,197,265″ href=”http://www.bystephanielynn.com&#8221; target=”_blank” /><br /> <area shape=”rect” coords=”1,2,224,180″ href=”http://www.itssoverycheri.com&#8221; target=”_blank”><br /> </map>
There is another really exciting event coming up on May 6th that is going to be so fun with tons of giveaways. I will be letting you know about that next week. (If you have a business of etsy shop and would like to sponsor a giveaway for it — shoot me an email and I will fill you in on the details!)
And the biggest thing is something that I have been working on since November. I will be revealing details on that May 10th!!
I am reevaluating the Weekend Wrap Up Party. I started it as a way to come and see your projects. I appreciate you following me and I want to support you in your projects. 
  • I love highlighting your projects. 
  • I love having giveaways and giving things to YOU. 
  • I love supporting this blogging community, whether that is someone’s blog party or your giveaway.
  • I love to create and share my ideas. And sometimes they are flops, but I think that’s part of keeping it real in this blogging world. We are all trying our best.
I do come and see every project that is linked up. I was trying really hard to comment on each post and it truthfully was taking me 4-5 hours. I was staying up until 3 or 4 in the morning to get the comments done. I appreciate your comments on my blog and I really want to return the favor. If I keep the Wrap Up Party going, I will try to comment on each post, but I might have to hit some on some weeks and others the next.
I would love it if you would take this poll and let me know what YOU want. I blog as a creative outlet for myself, and to make friends. But I want to talk about things that YOU are interested in. I would love your POSITIVE feedback. Please be nice.

&amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;a href=”http://www.blogpoll.com”&amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;Free Blog Poll&amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;

Thanks for all the great projects last week. It was so fun to see what you have been creating. I have spotlighted a few projects from the party already, but here are a couple more:
 Love this sandal makeover @ Barefeet on the Dashboard
Camp out invitation
 Campout Birthday Party @ Random Thoughts of a Supermom
Favorite Things Parties Every Friday!
Great information!
How to make a Blog Button @ A Few of my Favorite Things

Metal Top Table Redo @ Red Door Home
DSCF6217
 Decoupaged Edges Work Table @ Shared From Way Over Here
 Thanks for being such great blogging friends. I really have made so many wonderful friendships through this fun world, and I look forward to getting to know you better!
 
 The Cardigan Empire giveaway ends at midnight. Make sure to sign up to win –– it is a wonderful resource!
And the Crimson Clover Giveaway ends Sunday night — great Mother’s Day present!!!
TGIF!
XOXO
