Fun New Series!

By Kate Riley March 7, 2011

Greetings all, happy Monday, I’m just putting the finishing touches on the boy’s room, then I need to snap some photos.  I can’t wait to show it to you!  It’s all finished just in time for his 5th Birthday (which is today, hooray)!  

Meanwhile, I thought it would be so fun to have a series of link parties throughout the spring and summer with topics for discussion.  These will be specific subjects, and I hope you’ll join me in a party or two.  I’m calling each of them a ‘Fair Weather Forum’ because they are all related to topics specific to these seasons.  Consider this your invitation to link up your best tips or latest project on the topic of the day.fair weather label

These ten link parties will take place on Mondays twice a month.

Here is the schedule of topics:

March 28th:  Spring Decorating & Cleaning

April 11th:  Easter Ideas

April 25th:  All Things Paint!

May 16th:   Outdoor Décor & Entertaining

May 30th:   Garage & Yard Sales

June 13th:   Summer Activities (Favorites & With Kids)

June 27th:  Fourth of July Ideas

July 11th:  Favorite Vacation Spots

July 25th:  Gardening

August 15th:  BBQs and Picnics


I’ll be writing up a post on the topic on the scheduled day of the forum, or featuring a new project.   I hope you’ll join in on the fun, and link up with your ideas, plus see what others have to say on the topic.  It should be a great sharing and learning experience.  

Mark your calendars, see you there!

  1. Sounds great! Thanks so much for doing this! Can’t wait to see all the inspiration. :)

  2. Great series! I’ve been meaning to get in on one of these and you have such great topics! I’m in!

  3. My son’s 5th birthday was Thursday the 3rd! I haven’t started his room redo, looking forward to seeing yours :)

  4. Awesome! I love having the schedule so I can have a couple of things ready to share. Thanks, Kate– brilliant idea!

  5. Love this idea! Can’t wait to participate. I’m totally ready for spring to be here, and I’m beyond thrilled that it’s RAINING today instead of SNOWING! Yay!

  6. Oooh, I love it! Can’t wait to link up to a few. And wow, what an effect just seeing those dates has on the psyche. Words like “April,” “May,” and “June” put a smile on my face … thank you!

  7. Fun series…..and your little guys room came out GREAT !!!!

    All the best,
    Kathy :)

  8. Fun idea! I’ll definitely be linking up. One question: does anyone know of a forum for discussions for bloggers? I always have so many little questions that’d love to throw out to blog land. Mine today: how do you all keep track of link parties, which days are which blogs, which blogs are themed parties adn which are not, etc.! Do you have a calendar system that is easy and works? And is there a yahoo group or the like for bloggers to chat with one-another??

  9. Awesome! Kate, can you please be specific on the time that you’ll open these linky parties? It helps us keep tabs of our schedule, plus we don’t have to keep checking if it’s open or not. Thank you.
