Friend Friday – 11/11/11

I thought it would be appropriate to mention on Friend Friday that one of my blogging friends has featured my blog this week. 
She’s got a fantastic blog hop happening over there, so hop on over and link up to Suzy’s site!
Thanks Suzy! That was fun.

Friend Friday – Plus a Transformation

It’s great to be back to the blog. A vacation from blogging is good every now and then. A few weeks ago on Friend Friday, Amber from The Gypsie Trunk posted a sweet project that I just have to share. She made a clever coffee table from pallets.
Isn’t that just plain cool? Love it!
Now if you want to know how Amber made this coffee table, you’re going to have to hop over to her post at The Gypsie Trunk for the tutorial. Thanks for the inspiration, Amber.
Do you have a project you’d love to share? Then link up with the Simply Linked tool below. Just be sure you link to a specific blog post and not to your home page. (Go to the page you want to show off and copy the URL from the top of your browser).
If I feature one of your projects on the blog in the future, feel free to grab the button in the sidebar.

Friend Friday – Link Your Blog

Happy Fall!

It’s Friend Friday and it’s your turn to show us what you’ve been up to on your blog. Have you made fall projects, read a great book, did a homemaking project we’d love to see? Then link up with the Simply Linked tool below. It really is that simple. Just find you latest favorite post from your website, copy the html address that you see in the top or your browser window and paste it into the link tool.

Just be sure the link goes to a specific blog page not to the home page of your website. Links that point to a home page will be removed. If you’d like to create a link on your website back to Trash to Treasure Decorating, I’ll leave that up to you. I don’t require it.
Thanks for being a Trash to Treasure friend!

Back to School- Friend Friday

I’ts been a while since we had a Friend Friday. It’s back to school time and kids are making new friends, so let’s make some new friends of our own. Some of you are off camping and enjoying the last weekend of summer. Others are enjoying a break from work. If you have some play time on the computer, why not leave a link to your blog using the Simply Linked tool below and show us your latest favorite post?

My specific requests are simple. Just one, actually. Be sure to link directly to a post, not to the home page of your blog. That means you need to open a post and copy the URL from the top of your browser page. I have to remove links that go only to your home page and not to a specific post because we can’t figure out what you were trying to show us.
If you decide to create a link to my blog from your page, that’s great, but I don’t require it.
Happy Labor Day! Enjoy those late-summer garage sales and I hope you find some trash you can turn to treasure.

Friend Friday- Do You Have Spring Fever?

Yesterday, it was cold enough to have snow flurries where I live, although I’m thankful the snow didn’t collect. Today it’s going to be in the 60’s. Isn’t that a crazy turn-around? I have Spring Fever! I’m opening the windows whenever I can, even if it means I have to wear a sweater. 
I’m indoors today working on some writing projects, but I’m hoping someone out there is enjoying the spring weather. I’m also thinking of all of the people in the states affected by tornadoes this week. What a tragedy! My prayers go out to all of those who have lost homes and loved ones. 
For Friend Friday, this week, I can’t wait to see your spring projects and recent blog posts. Link up below and share your blog or website with us. You never know! I might feature your blog or your project on a Transformation Tuesday in the future.

Friend Friday – Leave a Link

Thanks for the Friend Friday responses last week. I had a blast teaching my class on blogging and showing them all the fun tools like Simply Linked. I took a few photos while I was away speaking at the conference. We had a faculty dinner at a restaurant that had some cool stuff hanging on the wall. All I had with me was my iPod, so the pictures aren’t quite as good.

 What did you blog about this week? Leave a link below for Friend Friday.

Friend Friday

Today and tomorrow, I’m teaching about blogging at a writer’s conference in Iowa. And I’ll be referring to live examples on my blog all weekend long. That means, I’ll be showing them how the Simply Linked tool works too.
So, for friend Friday, I’m asking you to link up below with your favorite recent post from your blog. Show us what you made, your inspiring and witty words, or your hilarious photos.  Let’s see how many T2T friends are out there!

Friend Friday

It’s Friend Friday and I hope you had a great week. It’s also my day to add a hodgepodge of notes…
Once again, you have an opportunity to link up your blog. We live and learn by our mistakes, and trial and error. And, I discovered with me last Friend Friday, that when you ask for friendly spam, you get a HEAP of unfriendly spam. Sigh. So, I’m trying a new link tool called Simply Linked. Just make sure you link to a specific post and not just the general domain name of your blog. There are no rules, other than that I request no spam, meaning pure advertisements for products or links to items you have for sale on etsy. Other than that, I’d love to see your blog for inspiration, humor, craft projects, and of course your fab trash to treasure projects!
I’ve also made a change to comments for the blog. I can no longer allow anonymous comments due to a high volume of spam. So, you’ll just need to make sure you use your free Google ID, or one of the other sources listed when you comment. Thanks for understanding!
If you’re a swagbucks saver, watch for a special code that I’ll be posting in next week’s Friend Friday post. If you haven’t signed up yet, I’ll have a little incentive for you in that post too!
Search & Win
Well, that’s about all folks! Have a fabulous weekend. Don’t forget your link below.
