No Change In The Couch Cushions
Things I Found At The Party
We had a happy party round these parts last week. Another round of Gotta Have It/Gotta Blog It link up party (which is still going on by the way, so link up if you haven't), which brought people from far and wide who left lots of wonderful things behind. These little gatherings are a way for people with their own online shops/businesses/blogs to show us their stuff. To reach new people (that would be you), expand their markets and in general, just get to know one another better.
Here's some of the places my mouse led me this time around.
mandala cards via notional notions; vintage green pottery mixing bowl via red hill home;
shop indie t shirt via krmbal; green turquoise bracelet via jewelry by debra
Something for everyone, yes? The writer, the baker, the change maker, and the jewelry lover. I'd be quite happy with all four.
Did you find some special things at the party? Share if you'd like. I love seeing what these gatherings lead the rest of you to discover.
I've been mulling something over in my head. I originally started Gotta Have It/Gotta Blog It as a shop and blog link up, but there haven't been nearly as many blogs participating as I'd like. So I'm thinking I may do the shop link up on it's own, and then the blog hop on it's own. What do you think?
If you have a blog and would like to participate in co-hosting the blog hop, just leave a comment. I'd also like to grow these shop link ups because I think there are so many hardworking artisans and crafters that should be discovered. If you have any ideas let me know!
It was like Spring this morning, I even went outside and raked my garden beds a bit. I admit, only because I was on the hunt for mint. Garden report: it's a mess out there and the mint isn't making itself known yet, which surprised me since you can't kill the stuff and it grows like weeds. However, other things like my fragaria (non-fruiting strawberry) was and thyme has been green all Winter under the snow. I can't wait to get out there and do some real raking and cleaning up.
Have a great day and I'll work on doing the same. Lots to do in the office. Too bad the snoring hound behind me can't help.
Ciao for now,
