Tickled Pink No. 26

504 Main
A craft...a recipe...a tip...a party...a short story...a  poem...
a  fashion find...a  favorite product...your favorite  post...
whatever makes  your blog  fabulous!
That is what Tickled Pink is all about!
{and it does not have to be PINK}
*************************
I am Tickled Pink because...
Well...before I go any further, let me tell you this Tickled Pink is a little different. I REALLY, REALLY stink at time management...in fact you could say my time management skills are WONKY...and I have been SWAMPED since our little Disney Experience...so I am not doing a featured blogger (or three) this week...I like to take the time to really do a good job with my featured bloggers and I just do not have it this week or visit very many blogs....
BUT next week...watch out!
So, here is the scoop on the visits and comments:
{all subject to change of course!}
**If you commented AND linked up, I tried to visit and comment back.**
**If you linked and did NOT comment,
I visited but may or may not have left a comment...**
HOWEVER...
Just because I did not comment, does NOT mean you won't/can't be featured...
but it is one way to help me "get the job done."
I need to prioritize...I need to exercise...
I need to glitter pumpkins with kids!
*****************
See this fabulous craft kit from Makia Creations?
I just received one in the mail today.
I cannot wait to make it and show you!
Everything comes with it!
You can win 3 (or 1 style) for you and a
couple friends to have a craft night...Sound fun?
Well...GO ENTER the GIVEAWAY!

New Taylor Swift CD on Monday!!!!!
Yes..I am a dork but I love her and maybe it means
the Camp Rock 2 soundtrack can get a little rest!

I hope everyone enjoyed the lovely ladies who were
hanging out here last week while I was at Disneyland!

Willoughby wrote a beautiful post about tolerance and bullying and acceptance. It was powerful and well written and sad at the same time.
I really try to teach my children to appreciate others differences and opinions and to accept that every one is entitled to their own opinions (yes, even those we do not agree with!). Willoughby address the issue with sensitivity and class {she is awesome!}

A couple of weeks ago, Saving Money and Living Life asked me to guest post with my Blogiquette post from awhile back. Well, I updated it a little - it needed it...and it probably needs some more - this is a work in progress you know! But man oh man I see so many subject to explore (and perhaps I need to brush up on them again!). So, I will be doing some blogiquette posts over the next few weeks and would love to hear from you

  3. What a brilliant post Holly! This was so jam-packed with excellent stuff I don't know where to start! I think I might go and check out one of last week's features regarding how we can keep readers after linking up. Thanks so much for that!

    Thanks also for having me. After I have read this I am going to research how to send you High Resolution pictures...I am really on a steep learning curve when it comes to blogging! I wouldn't have it any other way though!

    Best wishes always,
    Natasha.
