Fun Stuff Fridays (#5)

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 andย 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 230 submissions last week and we couldn’t believe it! To say we were left speechless with awe is an understatement. It took us a while to go through each one and narrow it down to our top three. 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!

Our joint favorite pick was the Egg Carton Tree submitted by JDaniels4’s Mom. So simple, so cute, so easy–why didn’t we think of that?!? This is on our “to do” list for next year for sure! Recycling at its finest =) Tee hee hee.

Jamie’s number one pick was I Love You Because submitted by A Content Housewife. This is perfect for your hubby (but also your kids!) to wake up to in the mornings!ย  Write a message to your kids every morning. What a wonderful idea and great boost to the day.

Lindsi’s favorite pick from this past week was Rudolph Melted Crayon Antlers submitted by Rockabye Butterfly.ย  I love the way this turned out! I’ve seen melted crayon art before but THIS is a GREAT new spin on it! What a creative and fantastic idea.
