Best of Tickled Pink and your BLOG 2010...LINK IT UP!

Before I go further, I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who comes by each week to link up!  I have met some really amazing people this year and seen and read some amazing posts. I am so happy to be a part of this bloggyworld!

I have gotten a little - a lot - overwhelmed in these last few months, and I have not been the kind of blogger I want to be. I believe what makes blogs so unique and fun is the interaction...I have been remiss in my visits and comments and I apologize. I have read you in my Reader and visited intermittently but not regularly...so I thank those who keep coming back for their continued reading and support. {I still have not visited the links from 2 weeks ago...I will and I will post those this coming week.}

Over the next few weeks I will be finishing up a project and I am looking for some awesome guest bloggers...so let me know if you are interested and I will send you the guidelines...of course the content needs to be relevant.

Now....on to Tickled Pink!
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO A SPECIAL POST...JUST ADD THE BUTTON AND THE CORRECT URL OF YOUR FAVORITE POST!

Part 1 is BLOG Info
Part 2 is Causes
Part 3A is Cool Ideas
Part 3B is Inspiration

I have a confession...doing these linky's were way more difficult than I imagined. I do feel I bit off a little more than I could chew. I had a lot of unexpected circumstances pop up over the last few weeks and that threw me off a little bit too...ultimately what it came down to...Family is more important than the blog {I already knew that of course...but I do sometimes slip up}.

Even as I wrote up the 5 parts of these linky's I was remembering other posts and realizing that there was NO WAY I could recap it all! As I type this up I am remembering more and more. So, if I missed you...I am so sorry. I plan on going back and spotlighting some of the other posts in the early part of the year.

Also, I said I was going to do categories...too complicated. What I like about my blog and tickled pink is that it is a mix of all things that I love...so just link up with your favorite post of the year, the week, the month...whatever tickles you pink!
(be  kind...I keep finding tons of typos in my posts this week...too tired...too busy!)

PINK RULES
  1. Add the button...pick it up at the top of my blog!
  2. Link  up...whatever makes  your blog  fabulous. Family Friendly please. Guess what? You post does not have to be PINK!!  
  3. PLEASE LINK TO A POST URL, NOT YOUR MAIN URL****
  4. I reserve the right to remove posts that are offensive or do not  adhere  to the rules, without any discussion, at my discretion.
  5. Pretty please...add the Tickled Pink button to the post* {people need to know what the heck they are doing!}.
  6. Visit some peeps on the hop.
  7. *It would be great if you were a follower or subscriber {*wink*}
  8. By  linking here you are providing permission to feature your post {along  with a link to your blog/post}. Additionally, photos appearing here are  copyrighted and property of the respective blogs featured.

2010 ROCKED the Creativity! The Best of Tickled Pink! Part 5...WHEW!

Well, I am on he final roudnup and getting ready to post the linky. I originally intended to break this up into categories...but well, I will be honest I have ran out of time. I have spent time with family and friends rather than the computer this week! 
So, I am sorry, this is LONG!

The Antonio Treatment ran on HGTV after one of my favorite shows, Design Star. I LOVE this show! And, well, I love Antonio - yeah, I like a bad boy {didn't marry one though!}...I think he is dreamy {in a tattooed designing dude way}. He won me over with his Bright pink painted birds last season...
 {photo above from HGTV}

...and then he painted a room purple {I have a purple living room!}, and well, on his new show, let's just say I cannot wait for more of him...I mean his designs.
Check out this wall of reclaimed wood! I have watched this part of the show at least 4 times. You will be seeing this in my house, my garden, anywhere I can sneak it is. L-O-V-E! Sorry for the photo quality - I could not find one photo online, so I took photos of my TV - I felt so 13 again! Now I need to go record some songs from the radio and try to sing them.
