Sweet Sharing Monday


Boy, this Monday is going to be a doozey. After 4 days of stuffing myself, visiting with family and shopping, the prospect of heading back to work is a daunting one. I hope that you each took some time off to relax and regenerate (maybe a little retail therapy?) this weekend. I had an amazing time with family, even if travel did wear be out a bit. But don’t think I was slackin’ the whole time! Oh no! I was honored to participate in the Bake, Craft, and Sew along with some Filled Ginger Snap Cookies– and put up our woodland themed Christmas tree to go with our DIY Advent Calendar.

But, enough about MY week. What have you all been up to? I can’t wait to see!

Before we start, however, let me give an update on something I mentioned last week:

I want to say thanks for stepping up and clicking on fellow blogger’s links. The amount of clicks went up from 30 to 49. Its still heartbreaking that over 90 links were posted- and only half of that number visited another’s page. I know that we’re all busy, and we see some of the same links at other parties and we might have visited them there. Then please, look for a link you haven’t seen and visit. If you leave a comment, you’ll even get extra warm fuzzies. Thanks!!

The party is after the features!!

Top 5 Comment Tips for Bloggers by Diana Rambles

The blogging community is just that- a community. This whole world is built on how we communicate with each other and our readers. Diana has some great tips to help you be a better blogger, and get more comment feedback. I for one LOVE meaningful comments- and I try my best to leave them. There’s just something empty about, “so cute.” as a comment.



And my Personal Favorite:

DIY Paper Church by Wesen’s Art

With my intense love for 3d paper crafting, how could I NOT love this!! The idea of making a snow white pretty Christmas village just tickles me. What’s more, Wesen’s Art offers these as free printables! That’s right, anyone can make this beautiful church or the houses, and tree that she has developed as well. I for one know that there in nothing harder than putting a 3d shape onto a piece of paper and explaining to others how to make it come to life. She did such a great job!

  1. Hi Kayla, thank you for hosting your party again this week. Your update about the number of clicks made me so sad. We all like comment love and to attract new visitors to our blog. I have been guilty of this myself at times, telling myself “I’ll just link up for now and come back later when I have more time to visit others.” Sometimes that doesn’t happen. I really appreciate your pointing that out and I will make it a priority not to link up until I can take the time to visit others at the same time.

    1. Debbie,

      Thanks so much for your kind words! I was a bit worried about being a nag. I know what you mean about putting the visits off- but really, this is about *sharing*. In order to take, you need to give a little. ;D

  2. Thanks for featuring my Paper Church! And thanks for hosting!
    If you build the church or the village please send me a photo or the link. I want to make a post with the titel “My church in all over the world” in a few weeks.
    Hugs from Germany!

    1. Oh my! I might have to put it at the top of my to-do list then! hubby and I have a ceramic village… I’ll have to see if I can convince him to go paper.

  3. I don’t think my other comment went through so I am trying this again. Thanks so much for featuring my Top Comment Tips. I grabbed the featured button for my sidebar and also put it on that post.

    I agree with you about people linking & running. I have seen an increase in clicks on my weekly linky party, but there are still a lot of link & runs. Sometimes people just need the reminder.

    Have a great week!
