Miscellany Monday

I'm thinking about starting a new thing on Fridays....I'm still not sure what I want to call it, but I would really love to feature some of my favorite bloggers! I am always SUPER excited when another blogger features me, so I thought it would be nice to return the favor:) I was thinking maybe Featured Friend Friday?!? What do you think about the name, and would you like to be featured here? I would love to feature your blog...big or small, beginner or old pro!! Leave a comment on this post with a link to your blog and/or send me an email and maybe I can get started on this soon!
*****
I somehow managed to use up all of my photo storage space through blogger! That means no more pictures until I pay for extra storage or go delete old pictures from my picassa account. I don't think $5 per year for a ton more storage is too unreasonable though. Hopefully I can share pictures of my fun {Cherry Red} table makeover with you soon:)
*****
Jason and I are doing the Cinch 5 Day Fast Forward cleanse again this week. I am hoping this time I can manage to stick with the plan after the first five days are over, and maybe I can read the Cinch book that I bought a month ago and then never read.

Henry and Grant are starting tennis lessons today. We originally planned to let them play baseball this spring, but the closer ball season got the more I dreaded all those late nights at the ball fields. So we decided that tennis would be a fun spring sport instead....and the best part is that practices are right after school so no late nights at the ball fields for us:)

My friend Amanda is having a SUPER fun Crafty Cutter Party today! If you've made any crafts using your Cricut or Silhoutte go link up. If you don't have a craft cutter you can still hop over and check out all the really great ideas!

I think a Friday feature would be great. And sure, I'd love to be featured.

Good luck with the cleanse again.

You can open a free flickr or photobucket account and just post the html code into your posts rather than using blogger. I can help you if you'd like.

I'm new to your blog, but I am becoming a regular! I like what you have to say. :)

I'd be cool with a feature.

I'm also adding you to my blog roll on my blog.

Christine said...

My first stop here too...LOVE IT! Have a great day!

Jennifer @lifecraftsandwhatever said...

Ohhh, featured friday would be fabulous! Put me on the list of "Yes please, I wanna!"

Sure. I like to read new bloggers. You could feature me but since I have SERO crafty ability I can just read it.

Nichol said...

Features are fun, that is why I started one as well. It's nice to recognize those we love:) I like the name feature friend Friday!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Thank you SO much for the shout-out, Kelli! :) I appreciate it. I think your idea for featuring others is a great one!

I used up all my photo space in January (I think). Thank goodness just a few days before Beth from A to Z had mentioned using up hers and told me what to do if/when it happened to me. I opted to just pay the $5 and do quick uploads. I don't have time to upload photos online/copy htmls, etc. It only took me about 5 minutes to pay and I was able to start uploading right away. :)

I would love to be featured! I have 2 blogs. A craft blog: www.craftsforarainyday.blogspot.com and a recipe/cooking blog: www.readit-and-eat.blogspot.com

Those boys are so cute! I love when I hear the kids talking to each other and they don't know I'm listening!

That is a great idea for Fridays and a fun way to check out new blogs! I would love to join in and meet some new blogs too ;-)

I had to pay the $5 awhile ago...I didn't understand what else to do and I thought it was worth that price than trying to figure out what else to do!

Can't wait to see your newest makeover!

Cant wait to see that table. I would love to do a cleanse. Let me know how it goes again.

Trisha said...

I love the feature idea! I wouldn't mind being featured either. I have found some of my favorite blogs this way.
I understand you not doing baseball this season! My girls did softball & this year they (thankfully) decided they didn't want to. I was so relived! No more late nights & early Saturday mornings. They are doing dance & art classes after school. So much easier to handle :)

Lea said...

Sounds like a fun feature! And, good for you for getting your kids involved in a sport that is not so all consuming and that they can play all of their lives. Our son played golf and our daughter played tennis and it worked beautiful with our family.

Stopping by from MM and so enjoyed the visit! Blessings to you!

Foursons said...

What is the limit for photo storage? Now I'm worried. :(

I have heard someone else you Friend Feature Friday but I don't remember where. It just sounds really familiar.

I'm a bit jealous of no late nights on the ball field. Our first practice is tonight. *sigh*

Dee said...

no kidding? Ran out of storage space...I wonder how much longer til I'll be there. And who is the $5/month through? Blogger?

Kristie said...

What a great idea for your fridays :)
I would love to participate :)

Darcie said...

Yes...that is how God made us...red lips and all. Too cute!

I have heard of others that have ran out of space with their pictures too. I wouldn't even have a clue if I am getting close or not.

What a great idea to feature other bloggers. Helps people connect even more.

Kelli said...

I love the Friday title...how fun. I wish I had something to offer you. I have heard about running out of space...I wonder when that will happen to me. Tennis sounds like a lot of fun. I need to get my kids enrolled in something. I hope you're off to a great week and good luck with your cleanse.

oh, tennis lessons... what fun! the friday feature sounds adorable. you and your cleanses... they make me feel guilty. ha! i should do a cleanse. go you! you rock!!!

laxsupermom said...

The new feature series sounds like fun, and I'd love for my blog to be a part of it as well.

Tennis lessons sound like a lot of fun for your kids. WD tried baseball, but was the kid turning cartwheels in the outfield, went to tennis camp, enjoyed it, but not enough to stick with lessons, and finally found lacrosse. It's constant running(good for ADHD kids) and the aggressive nature of the sport is perfect for him. He does still play tennis occasionally and has been a ball boy for the last couple of years for the local Challenger touornament.
