Fridays Unfolded: A Party!

So I'm starting something new this week.

I am not a big participator in link parties or online communities. My time is limited and I am always hesitant to spend a lot of it online.  But a favorite blogger of mine, Alison, threw out an idea on Twitter that actually found me intrigued.

Every week, she hosts a link party entitled Fridays Unfolded.  It is unique from the others I've seen in that the only requirement to post is that it be something that unfolded for YOU this week.  What did you create?  What did you learn?  What would you like to share with the world?   There are no boundaries or limits, just inspiration laced with beauty.

Alison, being a creative writer, decorator, cook, and homeschool rockstar, endeavors to admonish you that your week, your life, is worth writing about AND worth reading.

Her idea, with regard to this link party, is simple.  One party.  Six bloggers.  SIX!  She invited me to participate and I agreed to help her encourage women everywhere to unfold their mess, their beauty, their life, love, photos, and inspiration to the world.

So will you join us?

A few guidelines:

  • follow your hostesses in some way 

  • link up as many posts as you like-recipes, decorating, faith, kids, homeschooling, humor, giveaways…whatever unfolded for you lately
  • grab the button and post it or linked text somewhere on your blog
  • visit a few links (it’s a party, people!)
  • pin only from the original posts
  • by joining Fridays Unfolded you are giving us permission to post a linked photo from your shared post
  • try to use nice, big photos in your posts. 
I had the privilege of reading through the last Fridays Unfolded party and choosing some of my favorites.

A few features for you:

I love apple desserts, and this looked absolutely fabulous. I can't wait to to try these cookies from Elizabeth at Just Following Jesus.

This thrift store crate makeover from Bonnie at Our Secondhand House is cute as a button.  I see these crates at shops frequently and may pick one up next time.

I want to go to Rome myself someday and this synopsis of a day in the life of a traveler was fascinating to read. Beyond that, the pictures are breathtaking.  It also reminds me of a really funny story in a book I read this summer that, as an aside, is well worth reading.  

So that's it!  Let me know if you have any technical difficulties following any links or hostesses.  

Now it's your turn.  What unfolded for you this week?
