Party Time!

Hey there, Jake's here today.  We're getting back into the swing of blogging regularly but thought it'd be fun to link up to some parties this week.  We love hearing from old friends and new ones too.  All comments and followers are welcome and we'll do all follow backs by Sunday. We're interested in all sorts of things so please don't be shy.  Leave us a comment so we know you were here!

Have you heard of National Blog Writing Month (NaBloWriMo) yet?  My sister, Melissa, is participating this month on her blog My Pet Blog (think My Pet Rock) which means she'll be writing a new post daily.  Melissa introduces herself and what her blog is all about here.  Go check it out!  Is it weird that I just told you to check out my sister?  Ugh.  Any way, she writes novels (check out her work here), writes entertaining blog posts about life, and uses much better grammar and punctuation than me.  She'll also be participating in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) next month.  She's going to write an entire novel in one month!  How awesome is that?  You can read about the her experience with NaNoWriMo last November here.   

Alison and I have been participating in the Kelly's Korner Show Us Your Life home tour series.  Kick back and check out the rooms we've shown so far. 

UPDATE: Kitchen

UPDATE: Office

Want some inexpensive custom wall art?  Check out Alison's tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by!

Parties we'll be mingling at this week...

I just clicked from TTT. You have a cozy blog here, girl, and your home looks equally cozy. I'm a home school mom and children's author. I, like the rest of the blogging community, am trying to build my blog following. The launch of children's book for early readers is on my heels and soon I can announce to the world, "Yay, my book is ready!" So, come on over to my place when you have a few moments to spare. Happy Tuesday all! ;)

Tin said... [Reply to comment]

New follower, happy Tuesday
