Tulips and daffodils and hyacinth and forsythia. Bluebells and pansies and lilies and dogwoods. Spring offers a bounty of beautiful buds, blooms and blossoms. And I love them all. If I could turn my house into a flower market, I would… There were so many wonderful ideas for using ┬áspring flowers linked up to The […]

Back in my newspaper reporting days, I was always on the hunt for a Scoop, a knock-your-socks-off story. Today, I have two scoops to share! This week, I’m joining 24 other bloggers to share ideas for how we keep your homes cozy in the wintertime. I’ll be sharing my cozy project on Friday, but the […]

Do you want the good news first? Or the bad news? I’ve always thought that’s a pretty unfair question. Knowing there’s bad news to come tempers any joy at the good news. So, I’m going to tell you straight away that my cohosts and I are discontinuing the Home{work} Wednesday party after sharing last week’s […]

Happy October! I blinked and September was over. I was thinking of taking a nap today, but I’m afraid if I do, I will wake up and it will be Christmas! Today for Home{work} Wednesday, I’m doing something a little bit different with the features. Instead of a separate post for the Top 3, my […]

Welcome to the weekly link party that celebrates homework and housework and all things creative.

There’s the real kind of homework (Who knew first grade would be so demanding?) plus housework, plus crafting homework, plus party homework for my son’s 7th birthday party plus packing homework as I prepare to leave Wednesday for a quick blog-related trip to New York. […]

I have a special surprise for you this week, in addition to the Top 3 projects from last week’s Home{work} Wednesday party. I promised you a giveaway when I hit two big social networking milestones. Well, I made it to 12,000 Pinterest followers and 3,000 Facebook followers, so I’m true to my word. (If you’re […]

This is one of my favorite times of the week. I love that so many of you drop in each week at our little spot on the Internet to party with us at Home{work} Wednesday. I know that link parties aren’t just all fun and games; they take time. I’m so appreciative of all of […]

It’s always fun to see which links generated the most clicks at our weekly Home{work} Wednesday party. Trend forecasters should take note of what bloggers and blog readers are interested in because it’s spot on trend.
