Welcome to Friendship Friday!

Welcome to Friendship Friday at Create With Joy – a week long blog party where we invite you to:

  • Share what’s unique about your blog and spotlight your favorite features!
  • Link your favorite posts, projects, giveaways and blog parties.
  • Chat with us in the comments – we’d love to get to know you!

You may share as many features as you like! Please include the Friendship Friday button on your blog and a link back to our site so that your readers can find us and join the fun!

(To grab the Friendship Friday button, simply right-click on the button – save it to your computer – then upload it on your post and link it back to our site.)

Friendship Friday is the place to make new friends, to grow rich relationships, to explore new blogs, and to expand your social networks! Who will you meet this week? Whoever it is, have fun connecting with one another – building friendships is what this community is all about!

We’re Doing A New Thing – Come Join Us!

Light And Manna Logo

Happy Friendship Friday, dear friends – I have missed you SO much! Sorry I did not post last month as planned. Life has been rather crazy here – every day, it feels like I’m being pulled in 20 different directions! I hope to get back to a more regular posting schedule soon – in the meantime, this party is open all month so you can stop by at any time to link your latest!

First Things First -Making God A Priority In Your Life - Cover

One reason I’ve been so busy is that my husband and I recently launched Light And Manna – an online ministry providing spiritual nourishment for your soul! I’d like to personally invite you to stop by, explore the site and join our community if it speaks to your heart. When you do, you’ll receive a complimentary copy of First Things First: Making God A Priority In Your Life. If you struggle to consistently meet with God and would like help creating a personal plan, this workbook is for you!

Another reason I’ve been MIA is because I’ve been creating new products and collaborating with other content creators to bring you some fabulous events where you’ll have the opportunity to make new friends and snag oodles of goodies! Our next two events are happening mid-August – watch for them and be the first to snag your personal invites!

What Are Your Favorite Friends Up To This Week?

As always, I wish I had the time and space to share more of your fabulous contributions – I always pull more than I can use – but this month, I wanted to share three fabulous projects that took my breath away!

Canvas Wall Art  - Blue Heron

Nicky at The House On Silverado showed us how we can create incredible Canvas Wall Art, even if we are first-timers! She chose a stunning blue heron for her project. If you’re looking for a fun crafty project to do this month, check out Nicky’s DIY Decopauge Canvas Wall Art Project For Beginners!

Macro Photography - Flower

Have you heard of Macro Photography? Artist and photographer Jeanne says it’s a way of seeing your photos in a new way – by viewing the close-up details, you can turn ordinary photos into something extraordinary! I encourage you to stop by to learn more about this and to see some additional examples of her stunning work!


It’s hard to keep up on all of the wedding and event trends if you aren’t actively planning one – but that’s where wedding expert Karen comes in! She always has something exciting to share like these gorgeous Bouqakes– a fusion of bouquets and cakes! Intrigued? Don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn more about this trend and to see more examples of this unique form of art!

Making new friends and deepening existing relationships is always a joy! Be sure to visit Nicky, Jeanne and Karen this month,, explore their fabulous blogs, leave them some comment love, and congratulate them for being our Friend Of The Week at Friendship Friday at Create With Joy!

Click The Join The Party Button To Link Up!

Friendship Friday is open for your viewing and linking pleasure all week. Be sure to say hello and introduce us to yourselves and your blog in the comments!

P.S. Friendship Friday is a weekly blog hop, but my family is currently in a season of transition. Until life settles down, I am leaving the party open for an extended period of time to ensure that you have a weekly place to share in the event that I am unable to host a new party in any given week. Please continue to join the fun each week and add your links to the latest party for the chance to be seen, visited and featured! Thanks for your grace and understanding!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
