14 days of Valentine’s Fun Stuff Fridays (#9)

Remember when Linkys were all the rage in blogging? They were a great way to find and get to know other bloggers before social media and Pinterest became mainstream. It didn’t hurt that they brought a ton of traffic to your site too. Lindsi and I started our Fun Stuff Fridays linky back in 2011. We kept it going for 20 weeks before it fizzled out (or we got sick of doing it, I’m not sure which happened).

It is now soon to be 2017 and at lot of the links in those linkies no longer exist. Plus, I’ve let my link up subscription lapse so you can’t get to them anyway. Instead of deleting the Fun Stuff Fridays posts, however, I have decided to clean them up and make sure our featured links are still valid. After all, on a rare occasion I get traffic from one of these old posts. The linky may be gone but the featured posts are still valid as of December 2016…

Welcome to day 3 of Toys In The Dryer 14 Days of Valentines!

Welcome to Fun Stuff Fridays. Can’t wait to see your amazing submissions this week! Feel free to submit as many ideas as you want over that time. And remember- spread the word!

Our joint favorite pick was the Valentine’s Wreath submitted by School House Scraps. This is one of those “duh, why didn’t I think to do something cute like this?” posts.  Absolutely adorable AND super easy.  Cheap doesn’t hurt either! We added this to our Pinterest board for inspiration! (School House Scraps no longer exists)

Jamie’s favorite pick from this past week was the Chocolate Covered Fluffernutter Hearts submitted by Homegrown Beanes. As her post says, “Do you ever have one of those days where you just need a little pick me up?”  Um…these would definitely pick me and the rest of my family up!  All I can say is, “YUM”!

Lindsi’s favorite pick from this past week was Scratch- Off Valentines Countdown submitted by Destination Craft. I never knew you could make your own scratch-offs and I am so excited to see this! This will be something to “keep in my back pocket” for future use. My kids would love this!
