Happy Saturday Night and Sunday Funday First Fay of February for some of you!
The month of love is upon us and hearts are filling the Blogways and Byways of the Intertube and the challenges, so I'm joining in.
Can you tell I've been watching Top Chef?!
Speaking of which, are you watching The Great British Baking Show? Oh, crumpets and jam, I LOVE that show! All they do is bake! You do get to know the bakers as the episodes go on, but only on the surface. It's a real reality show which portrays the actual reality of baking and the frustrations of baking, not the loves, hates, miseries, and bickerings of the contestants. Don't get me wrong, I watch all those horrid reality shows, too, but this one is SUCH a breath of fresh air.
The only downside is that you'd better not have any breads, tarts, tortes, or desserts on hand in your house because you WILL eat them after you watch this show!
~~ Okay, where was I was ...
- TIME OUT Challenges: "Valentine's Day With the Optional Twist of Hearts."
- Mrs. A.'s Butterfly Challenge: "Butterfly + V is for Valentine."
- Shopping Our Stash: "Make a Love-Themed Project."
To participate in the Society challenge, you send your card to the person in front of you in the sign-up and it turned out the person in front of me for January was my bloggie friend Greta of GG Creations! Lots of times the person in front of you is a stranger to you, so it's a great way to make new friends! I hope that you'll check it out and join in!
- House of Cards: "Use Glitter and/or Color/Photo Inspiration."
- Addicted to Stamps and More: "CAS (clean and simple).
New Friends Corner
I'm pickled tink to welcome five more new friends for you to meet!
Mary of Dolly Bee's Snippets of Life. Mary has been blogging since 2011. As the title of her blog indicates, Mary shares snippets of her life and photography, as well as her really extraordinary scrapbook layouts. I mean, extraordinary! I haven't quite worked out yet why the name of her blog doesn't match her name, but I'm sure there is a story there. Just like I'm sure that you will enjoy your visit to her!
Christi Conley of Art Without Anxiety. Christi has been blogging since March 2013. She loves adorning her pretty card designs and makes amazing 3D projects! I love the title of Christi's blog except that she has been having some anxiety since my visit advising her that I cannot comment on her lovely creations because I'm not a Google+ member. Which is just not right, so I'm asking for your help. Christi has both types of follower buttons, so that part is great, but her "comments" under "Layouts" is different than mine (non-Google+) so I am at a loss how to help her. I know lots of you have both follower buttons on your blogs and I AM able to comment even though I'm not a Google+ member. If you know how you can help Christi fix her blog, she would be most grateful ~ and so would I and her other readers who presently can't leave her comments. Thank you!
Elizabeth Sarkisyan of Create for Family and Friends, Another fabulous blog name. Elizabeth has been blogging since April 2010. Elizabeth's cards often showcase children or critters or sparkle and shine. They are always bright and cheerful and always colored magnificently! She is a challenge award winner and she has lots of wonderful inspiration to show you!
Ksenija Rizova of Sweet Kolbylkin. Ksenija is from Russia and she has been blogging since 2013. She has a wide range of talent and more than one blog to enchant you with her beautiful works of art. She also provides excellent photo tutorials for how-tos, which is always welcome to the rest of us. I know you will be inspired by Ksenija!
Lisa of This Sweet Madness. Lisa has been blogging since 2011. She is an avid challenge player and has won many awards for her fun card art! Lisa is on many design teams and one-half of a mother-daughter card business. I think you will find Lisa to be enthusiastic and her cards are all about fun, bright colors, and creative designs!
As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower! Please let me know you came by, so I can be sure and return the flavor!
