Aloha, Ohana Mama! Your friendly neighborhood busy bee is back, ready to buzz the latest and greatest of what’s going on in the blogosphere!
BLOGS THAT MAKE ME LAUGH: I feel like Frogs In My Formula is a well-known blog secret. Everyone knew about it … but me. But I started reading the trials and tribulations of a mom living in the middle of nowhere and she’s just witty, sharp and … you have to read this post – especially if you are blogger who likes to review items. Can we say TOTAL WISHFUL THINKING! But it just might (BMW) work.
WORDLESS WEDNESDAYS: So many of us are now participating in Wordless Wednesdays. I noticed that those with the Mr. Linky Widget seem to get more comments. Mr. Linky is free and not hard to install. To get the Mr. Linky to appear on your page choose the Original Auto Linkies option. You do have to add code to your html – but only one time. After that it is simply adding the widget code to your post. So, get your Mr. Linky and get those comments you’ve been missing! It’s also a great way to easily find new blogs.
READY FOR THE HOLIDAYS?
I recently came across Stamping Everything and stopped in my tracks when I saw her gorgeous gift tags she made – so much cuter than store bought! So I stopped by again to see what else she had in store for her readers and was NOT DISAPPOINTED! Check out this Season to Sparkle Card Kit and her Christmas Cards! All available on Ebay for a limited time!
BLOG REDESIGN! Okay, I just totally have to brag just ONE MORE TIME about my new look at the Mom Buzz. Thank you, Rachel, from Blog Candy Designs. It is very modern and perfectly complements my blog buzz. Rachel also recently updated PB and Lullabies in a scrapbook style. Her range is amazing! Love your new look, Leigh!
Toni at It Is Naptime has a new look, too, courtesy of Diana at Custom Blog Designs. She went from the oft-used Minima Blogger template to a scrapbook style. It is GORGEOUS! Stop by and let her know you love her new blog design!
READY FOR THANKSGIVING?
No Time For Flashcards has an array of Thanksgiving crafts you can do with your kids. And they are always tied in with a wonderful story and a song if you are lucky!I love the foam turkey project and so will you! It is a spin on the traditional “hand tracing” children usually do!
Happy Thanksgiving is another blog to keep an eye on these next few weeks. There are coloring pages, crafts, the history of Thanksgiving and a lot more!
