Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

  9. Thanks for the party!!

  10. LuAnn Braley says:

    I don’t see the linky thingamabob? (It’s been one of those days.) Could I pick your brain as to “Migrating from Blogger to a self-hosted WordPress blog for Dummies”? DH got me a domain with our tax return but I’m entirely at a loss. Any words of wisdom?

    • Hi LuAnn,

      For some unknown reason, the linky (which was working fine when the party opened) disappeared briefly but now it is hopefully back –
      I just replaced the code – so please try linking again and if you (or anyone else) has problems, please let me know!

      Also, congrats on your domain – please e-mail me privately with your questions – you should have my e-mail but if not,
      look for the envie on my sidebar! 🙂

  11. Bev says:

    So much creativity! Thanks for sharing all those lovely projects!

  12. Hi Everyone,

    Sorry if you’ve had any troubles linking up today – for reasons unknown, the linky party went fine for the 1st 59 guests, then the code disappeared for reasons I have yet to determine!

    I’ve written to Inlinkz and am waiting for a response. In the meantime, I’ve replaced my normal linking code with a newer code so as to keep things running as best as possible!

    Please let me know how this works for you. From what I can tell so far, it looks like you will have to page through to see all of the links and it may take a few extra seconds to generate initially. I apologize for this inconvenience. But, I believe it also gives you better linking control over your photos. So, if you have any thoughts about the old code vs new, please let me know.

    Otherwise, have a fabulous week – have fun visiting everyone and being inspired – and, as always, thanks for sharing your creativity with us!

  13. Update On The “Disappearing Linky”:

    I just heard back from Aris at Inlinkz: thank you so much for your assistance and prompt response!

    The reason that the original linky “disappeared” for a brief period of time was that one of the links had some unintentional bad html code in it, which threw of the subsequent rendering. He fixed it – I”ve now put the original party code back in so that everything will appear the way it usually does – so party on, everyone!

  14. Thanks for hosting again this week!

    Today I shared Preparing Beef Heart and Heart Kebobs Recipe. I originally made this recipe after we butchered our first steer but now I purchase beef heart from a grass fed beef farmer locally – it is just that good!

    Have a great week!

  15. xmasdolly says:

    Wow, so much to be inspired by. That chocolate skillet cake only inspires me to feel the pounds I just gained by looking at it, but what always inspires me is my music. I was raised around it, and I still enjoy it so.

  16. Thanks so much for the email reminder to link up! Hope you’ve had a great weekend.

    I’m hosting my Homemaking Linkup Weekend and would love to have you join, if you’d like!

    Have a great day!
    Mrs. Sarah Coller

    Hey Ramona,
    That prayer at the top of your Inspiration this week is just what I needed to read this morning, so thank you for that…. allowed me to take a deep breath and release the tension and anxiety that was building already … Mondays! lol…

  30. Carissa says:

    thanks for hosting! have a great week!

  31. Well I didn’t think I’d be able to link up since I didn’t have any recipes or DIY crafts to claim but I linked up my Read-a-thon because I’ve been inspired to read a lot this week! Already got through the 3 books I wanted to, but still need to write the reviews. Look forward to checking out these other talented bloggers. I have my eye on that buffalo dip and snickers cake! Thanks for hosting.

  32. Thanks so much for featuring our Scrapbook paper frames and for hosting such a great party each week!

  33. Michelle says:

    Hi Ramona! Thanks for a great link up this week!!! Many blessings to you and your husband as you celebrate 15 years this week! That is definitely an inspiration to me!!!
    I’m working on my post but this week I was inspired by a letter to me my son wrote but never gave to me. I found it at just the right time to speak to my spirit and reassure my heart on some parenting/discipline decisions I’d made.

  34. Lisa says:

    Thanks for hosting! I enjoy participating each week. I am sharing the recipe for “Cocoa Crackles” this week. They were SO delicious! 🙂

  35. Pamela says:

    What a blessing I received from you! Thank you for highlighting my blog post. A special honor I will tuck away in the memory box of my heart! I hope you receive a 10-fold blessing.
