A Little Birdie Told Me... is BACK!

After taking a week to
rest, recharge and reconnect,
our little party is back!


Welcome to
"A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday No. 74!
If you're here to share a craft, recipe or project post,
you'll find the linky and the specifics on how to 
join the party after the features below.


While on hiatus I rounded up some
great giveaways for June.
Stay tuned for...

A copy of the brand new book:
Mod Podge Rocks!

Trudeau Stress Less Kitchen Tools


This certainly isn't the biggest party on the block.
But big isn't really the point here.
It's about being real, genuine, and connected.
Community vs. lipservice
Fly bys are welcome
But regulars keep the community strong.
true-blue friends
 Thank you for sharing the creative threads from your life and weaving them in to our humble nest!


Link-up and Inspire!


1)  FOLLOW Rook No. 17 with GFC or Linky Followers

2)  LINK-UP -- Link-up the URL of a specific post -- all forms of creativity are welcome.

3)  POST THE BUTTON OR A LINK-- Copy the code for the button (below) and paste it into your sidebar or the body of your post.

5) COMMENT (optional) -- As this party grows, it becomes increasingly difficult to visit each and every link without neglecting my family for an entire day (or two).  So, here's my promise to you -- Leave a comment and I will guarantee a visit and a thoughtful, genuine comment back.

Link up items you have for sale, Etsy shops, or links to your own linky party.  If you have something for sale, please refer to the "Advertise" section.


Visit ONE other link and leave them a comment.
