Whimsy Wednesdays 26

August 28, 2012 by Jenny Melrose

It’s Whimsy Wednesday!


I received a huge surprise at the end of the week last week, I’m back to being a working mama this week.  I’m working on curriculum writing for the district, which is tons of fun so I definitely need a little inspiration ladies.  The best part is that this week is a double whammy because the Bloglovin Blog Hop is Thursday at 6pm EST.  So excited!  I’m also getting all my sponsors squared away for September.  If you have a shop or blog that could use some more exposure, I’d love to have you!

Let’s check out some of the amazing posts that were linked up last week.  We had over 270 posts shared!

Rachel from The Random Writing of Rachel captured our hearts with her Old Window to Picture Frame.  Absolutely gorgeous!

I fell in love with this Vintage Bookshelf shared by Kimberly from A Night Owl.  I’m dying to see how it was used in a Book Worm Birthday Party.

Kelly from Live Laugh Rowe gave us the lowdown on Social Media in the second part of her series, The Numbers Game in Blogging.  If you haven’t read the first part make sure you go back and do.  Kelly is sharing a wealth of knowledge.

Bonny from The Domesticated Princess made this reading specialist grin ear from ear when I read her Dessert Sushi.  I love it when connections are made with a wonderful children’s story and food!

I was so excited to see this gorgeous Pink Girly 1st Birthday done on a budget through diy projects.  I was even more thrilled when I realized it was Laurel from A Bubbly Life that wrote it.  We had breakfast together at BlogHer on the first day.  Love her!

Gina from East Coast Mommy is a lady after my heart.  She created DIY Teacher Flower Pens.  They are gorgeous and so simple to make.  You have to check out her tutorial.

Since this is the last week of Summer, I thought it was only fair to end with one last inspiration for labor day.  Fifi from About Blogging Time walked us through making Lime Snow Cone Syrup.  Yum!

If you were featured, please feel free to grab a button from my sidebar.  I am super excited that you all stopped by to share your whimsies with little ‘ol me.
