Inspire Me Wednesday {Issue 56}

The Christmas season has begun in earnest. Are you ready? Maybe this issue of Inspire Me Wednesday will shed a bit of inspiration on the holidays for you. Can not wait to see all of the creativity you all have to offer this holiday season. I so appreciate all of you who link up each and every week. Be sure to check out our features this week, and then share your links in the linky below. Happy holidays!Inspire Me Wednesday with MamaBuzz Linky Photo

The Inspire Me Wednesday linky is a place for you to share your crafts/DIY projects, your recipes/foodie posts, and the beautiful, interesting places you’ve traveled or visited. Every Wednesday you’re invited to link up your posts. Then the following week, I’ll gather 3-5, sometimes more, of your posts and feature them, along with the linky! (By linking up, you’re giving me permission to feature a photo from your post in next week’s edition of Inspire Me Wednesday here on, hopefully sending some readers over your way.) If pinning, please go directly to each featured blogger’s post and pin from there, in order to give them the proper credit and recognition. Without further adieu, here are this week’s features; get ready to be inspired….

Now it’s your turn to link up your latest projects (whether crafts, DIY, food) or your latest travel adventure. Please only submit posts/photos that belong to you and are your own, or that you have permission to share. Absolutely nothing is needed in return, but be sure to visit 1 or 2 of the other posts linked up, and grab a Pin, leave a comment, share a tweet or Stumble, etc. (Please note that while I really do make an effort to get to all of your posts to comment or share, it sometimes proves to be difficult, time wise. I’m so grateful to see you linking up each and every week, though. It’s exciting to share ideas and be inspired by your creativity.) Blogging is all about sharing and inspiration, hence Inspire Me Wednesday.

      Lisa, you’re welcome! I haven’t found many travel link parties, and travel is such a passion, I can’t imagine not including it.:) It’s so fun too to read all the travel posts and find new destinations to visit. Thank you for sharing every week.

    I would really like to be at that resort right now. All the Christmas preparations can get exhausting and I am ready for a vacation in a warm climate!
