One project at a time… Tuesday Link Party. (Any book suggestions?)

June 28, 2011
Welcome to my weekly link party, One Project at a Time. This party is devoted to all of my blogger friends, crafty or not, who want to share what they have going on in their lives. You can inspire us to create something new, weather it be a fancy feast or a newly painted piece of furniture. Or you can just share your blog with us! This week, Im still on the down low… enjoying my summer vacation without school and craziness. May madness has gone and the beautiful summertime fun is here. My daughter started summer cheerleading practice (thankfully its only 2 days a week) and my son is finally finished with baseball. Yesterday was my 34th birthday which was celebrated with my kids at the movies and lunch at the mall. We saw Judy Moody. It was an adorable movie. At dinnertime, we came home to a surprising “Happy Birthday” song & candlelit birthday cake from my husband. He is so sweet.

My birthday roses.

My cute little cake.

Summer is always a hard time to keep up on blogging for me. I have devoted this precious time to my family & children. But I will pop in every now and then to say hi and hopefully share some of my summer happenings. This week, since I have not had any projects going on, I will share a GREAT book suggestion with you all. Since I love to read, Im always picking up new books whenever I see something that sounds interesting. This week, I found a book called “A Discovery of Witches” by Deborah Harkness. If you liked the Twilight series, you will for SURE like this book. Its not the same as Twilight, but the same kind of genre. I am really enjoying it as a summer read. In a few days, Im hosting a Scentsy giveaway!! Stay tuned. The scent for the month of July is Birthday Cake. YUM!

Do you have any good book suggestions? I would love to hear them.

  2. Pretty roses! thanks for hosting this link party. I’m going to try to take it easy with blogging just a bit this summer. I feel like I can’t let it go too long in between posts…but, I’m getting better at pre-planning topics and pre-writing, which really helps.

    Summer is the greatest time to spend with your family…I’d rather be with me kids than doing anything and that includes blogging or sewing or drinking gallons of soda (and that’s saying something). I keep thinking I’ve got to love them while I’ve got them…time goes by too fast.

    I’m a book hound. Right now I’m reading one called “Two Old Women” by Velma Wallis. It’s an ALaskan legend that is interesting and really inspiring. It’s a quick and cool read.

    Have you read “Heaven is For Real”? It’s a really fast/easy read but it’s a great book.

    “I’ve got to love them while I’ve got them…time goes by too fast.” WELL SAID!!! Thats my thinking… esp. with a soon to be teenager in a few days. Thanks so much for the book suggestions. I will definitely look these up. Crafty woman, PLEASE dont feel obligated to blog. If others love your blog, they will understand when you need to take some time off and they will keep coming back no matter what. πŸ™‚

    Love you all,
