Friendship Friday – Spring Forward

Friendship Friday

Welcome to Friendship Friday!

Friendship Friday at Create With Joy is a week-long event where you can:

  • Share what’s unique about you and your blog!
  • Foster friendships with other bloggers!
  • Expand your social media networks!

During your visit, please take a moment to explore Create With Joy and join my creative community through the Blogging and Social Media Icons on my sidebar!

What Makes Friendship Friday Unique?

Friendship Friday is designed so that you can participate in the way that best suits your style!

1. Need fresh ideas to blog about? Interested in what other bloggers think about various topics?

Each week, I’ll provide a Theme and Questions to ignite your creativity. You are cordially invited to share your thoughts in a themed Friendship Friday post or to answer the questions in the comments!

2. Want to share your creative talents or highlight a post from the past? Feel free to spotlight your favorite projects and essays!

Whichever option you choose, please add the Friendship Friday button to your post/blog and share this event on your social media sites so that others can join the fun!

This Week’s Theme Is Spring Forward!

This weekend, most Americans and Canadians will be losing an hour’s sleep as they “spring forward” into Daylight Savings Time – where they will be joined by their friends in the UK and Europe at the end of the month!

As the days begin to grow longer and brighter:

  • How will you celebrate spring?
  • Do you plan on spending more time outdoors, being more active?

Please share your answers with us at this week’s Friendship Friday party!

P.S. Animal lovers, don’t forget to enter the Pukka’s Promise Giveaway – I’ll be picking a winner this weekend!

Have Fun!

Have fun connecting with one another – building friendships is what this community is all about!

For more opportunities to create and connect, join us for Inspire Me Monday and Wordless Wednesday!

Great Tools, Great Service

    Thanks for hosting! I love that the days are getting longer. We get rain off & on right now, but when it clears it’s a beautiful time of year! I love getting outdoors more & love to get on the go more. I also have a passion for photographing nature & flowers. It’ s the perfect time of year to do that. I share more of my photography on my art site you can find that at
    Happy soon to be spring! Theresa 😉

  6. So hard to believe spring is almost here! I’m barely used to it being 2013 already! Thanks for hosting & God bless!

  7. Hi Ramona!
    I guess I celebrate Spring most by enjoying listening to the birds again and smelling the promise of growth and picking Forsythia to force and doing a bit of Spring decorating in my house. Spring…what a delightful time of year!!
    May your weekend be Extraordinary!

      Thank you Diane – for the past few weeks I have been enjoying the extraordinary sight of a family of 5 ducks who are currently nesting near my home – it brightens my day!

      Have a beautiful weekend!

    I started celebrating Spring (even though we got 8 inches of snow on Tuesday and the high today was 32!) by putting my Easter decorations around the house as I dusted and took down the knick-knacks I had up last week. These will stay up through Easter (and beyond as we will be away over Easter.)

    Thanks again for hosting!

    Hello and thanks for the reminder of “springing forward”. Here in Hawaii, we don’t change our time, but it’s good to know when we try to call our friends and family on the Mainland. Thanks for hosting! Lori

  13. Elizabeth says:

    We celebrate by simply spending more time outdoors before the pollen season hits!

  14. jessica says:

    Hi, just visiting from the hop. I love those cats.

  17. Is it weird that I actually hate SPRINGING FORWARD! lol. I love when the nights get darker earlier, I think I may be the only one! I think I like this because it gets me excited for the holidays! 🙂

    Thanks for hosting!

    I’m so excited for spring to here. We have had a dark winter and I’m in desperate need of some sunshine. I can’t wait to be able to open my windows.

    Have a lovely weekend!

  19. Lisa says:

    Thanks for hosting! My favorite part of spring will be finally being able to start our garden! 🙂 My children also love when we grow and release butterflies. 🙂

  21. Loy says:

    Thanks for hosting! While I hate to lose an hour of sleep, I’m really happy to see the return of warm sunshine! Next weekend we’re hoping to celebrate St. Pat’s day with some corned beef and green cake! Happy Weekend!

  22. I’m just hoping that spring isn’t hot and humid like it was last year since we had an unusually mild winter again – we need to get our yard cleaned up and the house ready for selling since we’ll be moving back to Washington State sometime this summer. 🙂

    Thanks again for hosting – have a great weekend! 🙂

    Hi Ramona, I have started to hike, haven’t jumped into the garden yet, but it is still cold. I love to spend more time on hikes and parks when I can. Thanks for linking at Thursday Two Questions. Have a wonderful week.
