Look at Me Party & Incentive

Thursday, April 8, 2010

So when I started the Spring has Sprung Party, I planned on it just being temporary...hence the Spring name. But I have enjoyed seeing all of your projects linked up so much, that I don't want to stop!!! And since Spring will eventually end...I changed the link party name to "Look at me, I'm so Crafty!" So still the same fun party, just a NEW name! And like many other bloggers, since I am such a visual person, I am trying out the new party with the thumbnail pics. Let me know what you think.

Party "rules"
Write a post...really anything pretty much goes. Then link up your specific post not your main blog url. Snag a button and get the word out about 'Look at me, I'm so Crafty!' at Fun to Craft by putting it in your post. That way people know where you are partying! And for more familiarity, I am leaving the button pretty much the same. Maybe after we get going, I will change it up!

You can share your fabulous ideas with others all over the web and go check out some other fabulous bloggers and get some great ideas yourself! Oh, and be sure to come back here the next week to see if your idea has been featured!

Make sure you visit some of the other great crafters too and give them some comment love. It always makes it worth your blogging efforts when people stop by and tell you how much they love you!!

NOW for the incentive...I have been SO excited to see how my little craft blog has really started to grow out in the blog world. I am no celebrity like some of you big bloggers out there but I still have a great following. I literally jump up and down with each new follower!! After a lot of thought, I have decided to add blog sponsors to my blog. Mainly, because I know how hard it is to get the word out about your blog or business. And to honor those of you who support me, (isn't it all about, you scratch my back and I scratch yours??) I will be giving away a FREE month of ad space for one of you that link up to my "new" party, 'Look at me, I'm so Crafty!' There is not a limit as to how many posts you can link up either. Random.org will choose a winner at the end of the party (Wed, April 14th at 7pm CST) and I will use your button (or another ad if you prefer) supplied by you to help advertise your blog for 30 days. I know how hard it can be to get the word out so I thought this might be fun for anyone, but especially the "newbies." So link up your creative blog posts and become a follower of my blog so you don't miss out on who wins!! It could be you! Oh, and if you want to blog about this to help me get the word out, I will give away TWO spaces if we have more than 150 ideas linked up!! Looking forward to all of the crafty ideas!

And after a crafting mishap this week, I now have some more fun projects to share with you too. Hopefully I can get them up this weekend. Thanks for coming by Fun to Craft and helping to inspire me!
