• Introducing Inspired Design Link Party

    Hi there!

    I am so excited to share a joint venture that is happening between some of my blog friends and me. We are going to be hosting a link party on our blogs each Thursday.

    Inspirted Design Link Party

    Now before you ask, I’ll tell you what this means for you!

    IF YOU ARE NOT A BLOGGER–you are in for a treat! This post each week will have some wonderful content all in one place. It will be like pinterest, except all links will be new. You won’t find a gorgeous photo and realize that link is no longer available because it was posted in 2011 (don’t you hate it when that happens!)

    IF YOU ARE A BLOGGER–you are also in for a treat! You can link up your latest creation to the party each week and we will choose our favorite 3-5 and showcase them across all of our blogs (and social media outlets) the following week. That means lots of exposure for ‘your inspired design’.

    The ladies that are working hard to bring this party to you are all talented in their own right and I hope that you will visit and follow their blogs and other social outlets. Let me introduce them to you and then we can all be great friends!
