Those Creative Highs

I am flat out of steam.

Here is my favorite creative high from you all last week.

I just love these embroidered family hand prints at The Mother Lode.

The Rules:

1. Link to your specific post, not the main page of your blog. Link to something you made that shows off your creative genius; something that gave you a creative high kind of like the endorphin rush that runners talk about. It can be an old post or a new post but it needs to be something you made.

2. Give your entry a descriptive title.

3. Use my button to link back to the party or add a text link in your post.

4. I can't accept links to etsy shops or online stores but I will accept parties and give-a-ways.

5. By entering your link, you are giving me permission to use any part of your post including pictures in a spotlight at Those Northern Skies (appropriate credit and links will be given to you and your blog of course).

The Prizes:

1. Every Friday at the next party, I will highlight my favorite posts from the previous week.

2. My favorite entrant of the week will win an advertisement in my sidebar free of
charge for one month (four weeks). If you do not have a shop, I can put your blog button up or if you would rather I can put up a button for your favorite charity.

3. In addition, for those who make a project inspired by one of my projects or one of my tutorials, I will pick one winner a month and they will get to keep an advertisement in my sidebar for two months. Plus all inspired entrants will be part of a featured post at the end of the month.


  1. I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for hosting this link party each week AND for stopping by to check out all the submissions. That must take a lot of time and I just wanted you to know that I appreciate it! Have a nice weekend.

  2. i love the embroidered hands, so glad you picked that.

  3. Poor dear, I'm sorry you're out of steam! Here's hoping you will recharge soon and be back to your energy bunny self. You deserve all the time off you can finagle!

  4. Wow, I love the embroidered family handprints! I am SO DOING THIS! LOVE it! I have seen similar ones - but nothing as pretty and lovely as this!

    I have to ask - I joined your party and put your button on my blog. But not on the post but on my sidebar with the other partybuttons. Is that alright?

  6. Hope you get your steam back!!! I know feeling.

  7. Hey Melissa! I thought I would swing by for the party and link up! I am home now from Savannah and blogging again :) I linked up twice when I realized you didn't mind to have people add their parties ... Thanks for that, it really helps to build visits and helps with making friends! Hope you are well and come by and link up to my party if you get a chance! Until next visit :) Anna @ Moon River
