Grow.Swap.Share Features!

I can’t even  begin to tell you how excited I am with the Grow.Swap.Share blog swap.  Things went so well I think we’ll definitely have to do one again.  There’s tons of stuff going on next month – oh just you WAIT!  Y’all don’t even know.  It’s all I can do to spill my guts!!  I’m thinking maybe doing Grow.Swap.Share. every 6 months.  Thoughts?  I’d love to hear feed back from the bloggers who participated and anyone who missed this round, but plans to join in next time.


And speaking of all the amazing bloggers that joined in this time, below you can find all the Grow.Swap.Share posts.  You know, if case you happened to miss any of them.  😉

First up, my faithful co-host, Carrie from My Favorite Finds
Carrie shared her Countdown to Disney board here at White Lights on Wednesday.

I’ve never put bran flakes in my meatloaf before, and now I’m super curious.
I adore Lena too much not to try this yummy sounding recipe.

Jos from Sew, Cook, Laugh, and Live shared her Coloured Paper Doily Pom Poms at Miss Information.


These pom poms are so happy.  I want to make a bunch and hang them from our patio roof.  I’ll just have to trump Mike about the colors.
