Oh my gosh.. I cannot believe that another year has gone by and we are ready to amp up for another great Where Bloggers Create party!
I have already had several of you email me asking when it will be, so here it is...
This years event begins on July 12th!
Last year we saw such a wonderful variety of studios from ladies all over the world. We had scrapbookers and fiber artists, jewelry designers and painters, mixed media artists and paper crafters.
We saw as many different kinds of artists and crafters as you can imagine and the amazing studio spaces that they create in.
I look forward to this event every year. Friends are made, ideas are garnered, and we are all inspired!!! Every year I am blown away by your creativity, ingenuity and passion for what you do.
I hope you all will join me again this year regardless of whether your studio has changed much since last year or not. Remember, it has been a year since we last visited your space so it will seem brand new once again!! If you have never participated, I encourage you to join in on the fun. We want to see where you create the lovely works of art that make your heart sing!!
I am going to try something new this year. If it doesn't go smoothly or you guys decide you like it better the old way, I'll go back to that next year. In all the previous years I have had you all leave a comment or send me an email to sign up and your blogs were listed on my sidebar. For this year though, we are going to try a link party. The main reason for this is that every year there were so many bloggers who signed up and then forgot (or were unable) to do their post.
With a link party, everyone does their post first and then comes over here to link up. You do not need to contact me to let me know you are going to be participating. (although I would love to know that you will be) Just come on over on the 12th and add your blog post to the list.
If you are unsure of how to participate in a link party, click here for full instructions. (It's really easy)
So the rules are as follows... (It's a short list, I promise)
1. On or around July 11th do a new blog post that shows off your creative playground. Please do not fear that it is not good enough. There is always a wide variety of creative spaces to be found during the party and yours will be loved and appreciated by all of us.
2. On July 12th, come over here and link up your post. (again if you need help, the instructions can be found here)
3. Please do not link up if you are just trying to advertise something or if you are not sharing a place where you create beauty of some kind. I will remove any blog or website that does not comply with this. :)
4. If you plan to participate PLEASE grab the code under the button for the event and put it on your blog. (It's in the top right sidebar.) If you would do a short blog post to let your readers know you will be participating that would be wonderful. The more bloggers that know about the event, the more participants we will have and the more inspiration you will have!
If you want to visit last years attendees, click here for the entire list. It will be available until this years party starts, and I will again begin linking the new posts.
Don't forget, it doesn’t matter if your space is big or small, it’s yours and that makes it special!!!
I hope to see lots and lots of you on the July 12th!!!
PS... (If anyone wants to get a pretty new look from Valentine Design for their blog before the event....there's still time! I am offering a 15% discount for anyone who is joining the party. Shoot me an email and I'll get you on the list!)
