“Mix Tape Monday”

 Ok-so I have always wanted to have a “party” on my blog.

Well, at least a legitimate one anyway.(and hopefully people will want to come)

So, while I was dancing my guts out last night, I had an epiphany.

Maybe to you, this means nothing. 
But to me, it was my own little “sweat infused Ah-Ha moment”


So, what is it?

Well, If you have ever read this blog before, you know I have a thing for “kitschy” titles.

Something catchy, fun and might just crack a smile.

I tend to lean towards music titles..a lot.

I LOVE music and the inspiration, comfort,or happiness a song can bring.

I also LOVE to use the right side of my brain. Creating something makes me happy. 

I know that I am not alone in my crafting, music love. I figure we could all use a little bit of inspiration whether it’s through someone else’s glue gun, sewing machine or favorite cast iron pot.

Here is how I am thinking this will work. Now, I also a person who changes her mind A LOT! I tweak and change and then tweak some more. So these guidelines are not set in stone. Hey, it’s my blog and I can change my rules if I want to..

(see, I told you that I like song titles..)

Link up something that you are working on.  For example, you are trying to lose weight so you don’t jiggle when you walk. (I can’t be the only one who is working on this) Or how about organizing your house because you are really sick and tired of opening the linen closet and having the entire mountain of towels fall on top of you. Now, we all know that it was your children who stacked them like this. 
No judgment here.

Of course, please post your most recent project that you just finished and you want us all to see. We all know that there is nothing quite like a total stranger telling you how much your latest creation rocks! Because, if we had to depend on our husbands or children to tell us how awesome our stuff is, we would probably never craft again. 

Tried a new recipe that your WHOLE family ate? How about the latest gooey, delicious, yummy desert that you just made. (by all means, please post as many of these recipes as possible)

Basically anything that you have made, or working on, or even a tip that can help us all out.

(i.e.-did you know that if you rub a fresh lemon on the rust in your bathroom sink, it will take it away?)

The TWIST-add a song that might be helping you get your craft mojo on. Maybe you just found a new song and you love it and you have played it over 26 times on your iPod and your family is sooo sick of it. Whatever you are humming.. Until I think of something different, please put your song somewhere in your post. If you are really awesome, include a link for us to hear the song.

Please play by the rules, I would hate to delete your link.
Only link to your highlighted post, not your main blog page. Please, no etsy shops or store sites.

Link back to Mix Tape Monday on your featured post.
(I am hoping to one day have a button for ya’ll to put on your post, but I have NO clue how to do this, so I have to wait until someone feels sorry for me and offers to make me one.)

Go and leave some comment love on some other posts that catch your eye. We all love comments, especially if they are compliments. So, if you have something nice to say, Share!!

Go forth and link! Lets Party!
