For those of you who have been looking for them, I wanted to explain our current link-party hiatus.
The first part is my fault: Fred and I took the boys up the East Coast on vacation for two weeks, and I spent my time climbing monuments and eating lobster instead of blogging. (Where are my priorities?!)
But now that I’m back, Jocie and I are focusing our energy on promoting our Before and After Series in place of the link parties for the summer. If you haven’t already read our intro post to that series, please check it out!
This is our 5th year running the contests, and we’ve added a little twist. We’re sponsoring the series in cooperation with over a dozen other bloggers this summer! They’ll be hosting on their own sites, so you can meet them all as the series progresses!
How it Works: Submit your project stories (as many entries as you’d like!) to firstname.lastname@example.org with pictures of the “before” and then the “after,” and you could win a $50 gift card to your favorite home improvement or hobby & crafting store, AND we’ll make a $100 donation to Habitat for Humanity in your name, if you’re selected as a week’s winner.
The series runs every week, so there are many chances to win; and there will be a grand prize at the end of the summer for the “best of the best” winner again this year.
It’s a great way to “give back” while you share your best work, so please email us your Before-and-Afters all summer long!
I’m excited to join in the fun *and* that it goes all summer long. Right now we’re busy with the during stages of a few projects. I am taking pictures along the way though.
That’s what we like to hear!
