Announcing A New Weekly Link Party

Our creative and thrifty (and generous) pal Van from

has begun 2012 with a fresh and ambitious outlook.

She is encouraging us all to share our goals once a week with a Sunday link party which will help us to remain focused and allow us to encourage and cheer on each other.

Let’s all contribute to making her new link up a success.

I would also love to hear what is working best for you in reaching your goals when you post.

Still suffering from the deadly head cold virus here (and lack of oxygen that comes with it) so posting mainly blog announcements and giveaway chances and party hops and reading and crafting challenges on my other blog.

If you have something you wish for me to promote, please give me a little advance notice.

My email address is found on my About Me page or you can find me on FaceBook as Laura DogsMom or Google Plus as LJ DogsMom.  On Etsy and Pinterest I have the screen name Bestlectic.

Does anyone have links to how best to use G+ and Pinterest?
My goals for 2012 include learning how to use those sites to a better advantage with a minimum of time involved.  A goal I am working on (continuously) is to organize my home and work space so I can more easily sell off the excess. I have already read 2 books in 2012! Now to let them go and move on.

I went out once only after Christmas to take advantage of the 75% off Christmas items at a local Goodwill Store and the customer appreciation 15% coupon.  I will show you the goodies as soon as I can breathe again.

I will add the names of the parties I am linking up to as soon as I see who is up and running.

I fear I have been away a looooooong time!

I want to add a few words here about another new linky party good for those of us wishing to show off our collections.

Some Good Stuff  at Some Good Times blog will be a weekly link up to show off your collections.

Bingo Bounty

Filed under: Crafts,Dreams,Inspiration — Laura R @ 2:13 PM

This past Halloween I was introduced to online BINGO, or more specifically Blog BINGO.

The hostess, in this case the wonderful Angela of The BLING Theory, will list a number of words in a blog post. The readers choose a certain number of words they wish to have on their virtual BINGO card. Each reader must email their list back to the hostess before the game begins.

   Once the game begins the hostess “calls out” words at regular intervals – it could be hourly or daily or whatever has been specified.

When all of your words have been called (this would be considered a full card game)
you email the hostess to claim BINGO.   The time of your email would settle any dispute if more than one reader claimed BINGO on the same day, unless the rules stated otherways.
(OK – how do you spell it? Otherwise or otherways? I have seen both.)

Beginner’s luck worked for me.     

Who does not love getting a huge box of goodies from the mail carrier?

Especially when it contains oodles and oodles of crafting goodies!

I know there are many out there lusting after this delicious pink possibilities package.

and as befit the season, some wonderful Eternal Love as well.

This bountiful RAK crafty package from Angela included many Teresa Collins papers and embellishments, plus stencils and other goodies to keep me happy during the coming cold months.

Oh- and Teresa has some free goodies for you as well.  Be prepared to fall in love with her blog.

I would also love for you to get to know Angels’s work from her UStream videos and her NING Network Creative Perspectives.

A super HUGE Thank You to Angela for this wonderful gift and for a fun time.

For those of you who can not get enough PINK GOODNESS, please click the link to visit Ms Beverly’s Saturday Party.

Live In The Now – Look Forward

Filed under: Inspiration — Laura R @ 8:18 AM

I found this image on a wonderful blog I discovered recently. It spoke to me.
I know that you will also enjoy your visits there.

I have a different computer up and running. The trouble is, I am not yet able to keep up its pace.
While I am learning I will check in now and then and try to visit you as I can.

I will also try to announce interesting parties and giveaways I come across at my other blog location.

Please know that I miss you all.

Happy Blogiversary!

Filed under: Good Causes I believe in,Inspiration,Party Time — Laura R @ 8:18 AM

Just a quick shout out to a couple wonderful bloggers celebrating the anniversary of their blogs – a blogiversary!

While just being able to meet and get to know them is reason enough to celebrate, these wonderful ladies are also sharing the presents with their readers – old friends and new.

Lynn at Trash to Treasure Art  has a wonderful creative giveaway going on that you have until Nov 18th to enter.

Tracie at Fishtail Cottage has gone giddy over her anniversary and is holding giveaways all month long.

Let me assure you, once you stop in at either of these blogs for a visit you will stay for more than the giveaways.

Still having my computer woes here, but have decided to concentrate on the homefront and getting the furnace operational before I can get the new computer set up.

However, on my party and link up announcement blog I have found a few more events to share.

If you know of more parties and special days coming up, please email me so I can feature them.
