Fun Stuff Fridays #6

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!  It takes us a while to go through each entry 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 DIY Fort Kit submitted by Happy Little Messes. If we’re being completely honest this fort kit is great for kids…..and MOMS!!! Jamie’s girls love forts and so do Lindsi’s kids, we’re adding this to our “to do in 2012” list for sure. (Link no longer exists)

Jamie’s number one pick was New Year’s Interview with the Kiddos submitted by Keeping it Plain and Simple. Such a cute, fun, great and creative way to create a keepsake for you and your kids through out the years.

Lindsi’s favorite pick from this past week was Valentines Pillow Boxes submitted by Bellaraevintage.  What an adorable way to present a Valentine to your sweetie! My kids would give me the thumbs up for sure if I put these together for them. (Link no longer exists)
