Grow Your Blog Party 2015

Grow Your Blog 2015

Welcome To Grow Your Blog Party 2015!

Welcome to Grow Your Blog – an event created by Vicki Boster at 2 Bags Full to help creative bloggers grow their blogging community!

I am a second-year participant and I’m delighted you’ve stopped by!

Thank you for the opportunity to tell you a little about myself and my blog. If this sounds like a place where you would feel at home, I’d love to invite you to join our wonderful community of creative individuals.

The Story Behind Create With Joy

Create With Joy

My name is Ramona and I’m the founder of Create With Joy – an inspirational blog that celebrates creativity in all its facets! We provide our readers with ongoing opportunities to connect – to make new friends, to meet kindred spirits, and to be a part of a creative community. We love learning what inspires you and discovering what you’re passionate about!

Here are a few things I am passionate about and some of the things you’ll discover as you explore my blog!

Arts & Crafts

God Is Our Refuge And Strength Card

I love creating beautiful things. I enjoy Art and Crafts of all types, but Paper Crafting is my passion. I’ve created DIY Craft and Tutorial projects for several major brands and Design Teams and won a number of design challenges since starting this blog.

Please join me each week as I share my latest creations and the inspiration behind them at Create With Joy!

Scrumptious Recipes


Do you enjoy creating and sharing great meals with your loved ones? Do you love testing new recipes and learning new techniques?

Whether you’re looking for something healthy, comforting or decadent – if you’re looking for delicious food – my husband and I would love to share our favorite recipes and culinary tips with you!

Together, we’ve created recipes for several brands and even won a few cooking contests – but nothing brings us more joy than the smiles and complements we receive from those we serve in love!

Be sure to check out our latest recipes!

Inspiring Books

Dancing On The Head Of A Pen

Are you a reader in search of an inspiring book? Are you an author in search of an authentic review? I love to read, review and host giveaways of inspirational books for readers of all ages!

I review books for numerous publishers, publicists, book tour companies and independent authors.

I’m also a Brand Ambassador for Chicken Soup For The Soul!

This year, I’ve launched a NEW community just for book lovers called the Book Nook at Create With Joy! I invite you to join us and to check out our latest Book Reviews!

Fabulous Felines

Magellan - National Answer Your Cat's Question Day

I love animals of all kinds – but my Maine Coons are an indispensable part of my family. They enrich my life in ways I cannot begin to measure and  form an integral part of my blog!

They bring joy to everyone they meet. Frequently, my readers share that they stop by each week with their children just to get their feline fix!

My cats educate readers on important issues regarding feline health – share public service announcements – represent major cat brands – and even make guest appearances on esteemed blogs such as Guideposts!

But – most importantly – my cats are my friends – my family – my constant companions. I love them deeply and cannot imagine a world without them!

Grow Your Blog Through Our Creative Communities

Connecting with creative bloggers and building community is a vital part of our mission at Create With Joy.

Each week, I offer several opportunities for you to gather with other kindred spirits – to share your creativity – and to inspire one another!

If these things resonate with you, I cordially invite you to join us for:

Inspire Me Monday – Nurture Your Creative Spirit

Inspire Me Monday at Create With Joy

Wordless Wednesday at Create With Joy

Wordless Wednesday is a place to make memories and share memories through creative photography. It’s also a place to share your special stories. Don’t let the name throw you. You’re welcome to join us whether you’re wordless or wordy!

All family friendly photos are welcome – but we’re especially excited when pet lovers join us, since our Wordless Wednesday party is the place where our cats hang out!
