Fun Stuff Fridays (#11)

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 Fun Stuff Fridays. We had over 300 submissions last week! WAY TO GO! You might wonder if we look at them all….and the answer is YES! We DO go through every sing one and check them out. We figure if you take the time to submit then we can take the time to visit! We love seeing what our readers have been up to and cannot wait to share some of our favorites! We wish we could feature all of them! 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!

One thing we’ve added is something that we hope you will like. We’ve been pinning each weeks featured picks into their very own Pintrest board! We hope it brings you loads of linky love….you’ve earned it! You can find our Featured Pintrest Board HERE!

Our joint favorite pick was the Quiet Time Bags submitted by My Oatmeal Kisses. We love anything having to do with quiet time! We love that you chose to hang them in the closet for easy access! Snaps to you! We’ve been inspired to create our own!

Jamie’s number one pick was Paper Airplane Target submitted by Repeat Crafter Me.  Super cute, super easy, and super fun! My girls like paper airplanes but usually we just throw them around the house. It would be fun to have something to aim at. If you don’t have a staircase to throw from you could stand on a chair and throw from a distance. You could even take this idea outside on a warmer day!

Lindsi’s number one pick was 3 day potty training submitted by Lifestyles of the Stay-at Home Mom. If I am being honest, and I am, I have a nearly 4 year old son who hasn’t had one success on the potty and I feel like we are never going to get there. These tips, tricks, and steps are something I am going to go ahead and try. Here’s hoping and crossing my fingers and toes!
