Inspire Me Wednesday Link Party {Issue 57}

As I write this, a holiday movie is playing, and I’m enjoying the fact that we have about 5-6 inches of snow outside. Yes, in Arkansas, we have almost half a foot of snow, and we may have more by the time it’s all said and done. This issue of Inspire Me Wednesday is full of wonderful features, including inspiration for the holiday season. Be sure to read through, enjoy the features, and then link up your own posts at the bottom.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….

This $4 craft from Robyn’s View will have you making a quick trip to Dollar Tree. Aren’t these Gleeful Glitter Trees just so gorgeous? Dollar Tree DIY Gleeful Glitter Trees from Robyn's View

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.

      Tonya, it is delicious. I just happened to have potato soup on our menu, and this soup was shared in the party. Couldn’t resist trying a new recipe.:)
