Saturday Sharefest: November 10th

I can’t believe it is Saturday already! There are still so many things on my to do list. One of things on my list is to take a few moments and visit some of the wonderful posts I have missed this week.

  1. Here is my post it is not from Last week but it has been pretty popular and I thought you ladies might like to see it.

    How To Live A Drama Free Life- Add Something Positive To Your Life

  2. SO I have been out of the blogging world for some time and literally, this is the week I am reconnecting with all of the groups I was once involved with. So my focus has changed some but the passion for writing and teaching is still there. My blog is still wet behind the ears, and dare I say “virgin-esque” so be gentle, lol Its been a 3 year break for me.

  3. I too missed Saturday, but this was my favorite post in a while. Tis the season, ladies!

  4. I missed Saturday, but here’s my Sunday share! My fiance is deployed to Afghanistan, and much of what I write about deals with the care packages I send him. This was my care package for this week (and I’m super in love with it):

  5. My favourite and most informative post for this week was definitely this one:


  6. Sad I missed the Sharefest…

    Crazy week nursing my broken foot and traveling to Boston but I wrote a reminder to us all that sometimes something as simple as pie can put a smile back on our face. And if you’re preparing for Thanksgiving and are still harboring a fear of pie dough as I did, I reran my post w Top Tips for the Dough-a-Phobic

    Happy Weekend Everyone!

  17. We’ve had the flu, so I’m trying to catch up. I have 3 giveaways right now. So drop by and register to win a great set of books!

  18. I’m starting a private Facebook group challenge tomorrow, 11/11, for all my girls who want to stay sane and slim during the holidays. It’s the Quest for Thinner Peace 7-Week Holiday Challenge. Just a great place to share, get support and accountability. We’ve got a great group of interactive women, many bloggers, busy moms, etc and would love to have you join us! It is totally free and not just about weight, but about keeping your boundaries, fitting in me time, and other holiday struggles we all share.

  33. I’m not very good at Twitter so, hopefully I can figure this out! This week I sounded off on Autism which I almost never do. My recent findings should be screamed from every roof top in America. Doctors are not always right and Mother’s intuition goes a long way.

What I could really use is some repins of a tutorial I made, I’m in a contest and the one with the most pins which a ticket to Alt Summit and a chance to teach a jewelry making design camp at the conference. I’m DYING to teach, it would mean so much to me if you guys would repin it, here is the link:
