Saturday Sharefest: January 5

I hope that your first week in the new year was a wonderful one! I feel like I’m still pushing through that holiday fog, but I guess that’s normal, right?

Did any of you fabulous SITStahs make a resolution this year? Or how about choose a word to live by in 2013? I’d love to hear what they are!


How about some highlights from our last Sharefest?

Have you ever heard of a cat murderer? Well, over at Looking for luck, love, and… her cat commits the crime.

Britton from My Big Beautiful Life gave us a fun tutorial on how to make an edible craft with your little ones.

Did you add ‘read more’ to your list of resolutions for 2013? If so you’ll want to head over to see Kim at Coffee Pot Chronicles, where she is holding a Project 36. Sounds like fun!

Now it’s your turn!

Share your favorite post from the past week. Make sure to visit the two posts above you & leave some comment love as well.

And don’t forget our #SITSSharefest Twitter Party happening at 10:00 AM EST / 7:00 AM PST on Saturday. It’s a great way to get one of your posts some extra love on Twitter!

Happy sharing and have a wonderful weekend!

    I said I would post some of my art on the blog, and got a good response to that, so here it is.
    I’m considering selling art by my Mom and family and would like to know if I should do it from a blog page or from Facebook. Does anyone know which is the best way to do this kind of thing?

    I like all my post of the week but I really enjoyed sharing my vision board i created for 2013

  3. says

    Thank you!

    Happy 2013 to all!! I did not – as usual – make a New Years Resolution. I always have a hard time sticking to them so I just set myself little goals every couple of month. My favorite post incorporates a song my DH wrote about our DD’s fight to survive when she was an infant in the PICU with E.Coli Mengengits. He wrote this beautiful song, and it brings tears to my eyes listening to it. Thank you for reading and listening/watching the song!
    P.S.: please spread the word on newbornscreening. It saved the life of our baby :)

    excerpt of my commentary on movie Django Unchained – …I like to imagine taking color and race out of the equation and instead put in robots or an alien race who truly live to serve, to do the manual labor. Then, I could picture myself with a pretty sweet life of sipping mint juleps on a colonnade porch, attending balls in fancy gowns, sleeping in the afternoon heat and entertaining suitors in the parlor..

    This is my first Saturday Sharefest!! My favorite post from this past week was my 2013 resolutions, #1 being to “Create time without technology.”

  7. says

    I sort of made a resolution, but I never stick to them. I’m taking a cautious wait and see approach.

  8. says

    I don’t really have any new years resolutions … hope everyone had a Happy New Year though :)

  9. says

    Hoping I can still join the sharefest today girls! Here is my New Year Resolution… perhaps it may nudge you to take a look at how you spend your time too!! :)

    My favorite post of the week was rounding up my Project 52 or last week. Looking back at how much my son has grown up. sniff sniff.

    Good afternoon ladies! With all the rush from the holidays, it’s been awhile since I’ve stopped by to say hi! I can’t wait to start reading some new posts.

    My favorite post of the week was about introducing my dog to Pinterest. Sounds silly, but it makes sense when you read it. Have a great Saturday!

  12. says

    This week I’m happy to share software for charting your own pattern! The options are limited so I’m pleased to offer 2 options!

    Happy new year! If there’s a word I want to live by this year…. hmm. It might be “gratitude.” I’ve been counting my blessings a lot, lately. This year I’m going to have a “gratitude jar” that my boyfriend and I will put notes in throughout the year, about things we are thankful for, happy about, things that made us laugh, etc. Next new year’s eve we’ll open the jar and read them all.

    The post I’m linking to this week is my Year in Review. It’s related to the gratitude theme… I really wanted to do a “looking back at 2012″ post to thank everyone who participated with me in making my blog possible for the past year.

      What a great way to start a new year by being thankful and having gratitude for what you already have or have experienced. Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Kate! I also have a jar like that. I call it the Blessings Jar. I’m looking forward to reading your Year in Review – it’s so interesting to see where we’ve all been this past year.

    Hi SITS girls!! How’s your new years going? I’m ready to get back to the swing of things & start project life. How about you?

  15. says

    Happy New Year, ladies! Hope your 2013 is filled with lots of laughter, chocolate chip cookies and impromptu dance parties. 😉 Here’s a post I wrote about the coming year. *Rolls up sleeves.* Bring. It.

    My last post was what my biggest lesson was in 2012 and featured a few tips on how I took control of my happiness, hopefully it can help a few others to start living their best life

    It’s cold and wet here in Austin and we’re all going a little stir crazy. Even the dog.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    I have two favorite posts from this week. One is a new recipe for a trend I am trying to start – BBQ in winter. The other is HUGE news we bought a house and will be totally remodeling the kitchen all on our own! so excited

      I like how you think! BBQ sounds super yummy….now if I can just convince my hubby to stand outside in the freezing temps to grill some up for me!
