Share It Sunday {40}

Welcome to the 40th Share it Sunday!


This is a milestone for us and to celebrate it, we have added a new twist for this week!  We want you, our readers, to vote for your favorite links in this week’s party!

Let me first share a special giveaway I’m hosting for my readers!

It’s that time of year…back to school.  Many of us are out shopping for back to school supplies for our kiddos and the supply lists are long.  Personally, I don’t remember buying so much stuff when I was in school.   :-)   To help out, several blogs collaborated and are offering a PayPal Cash Giveaway!!  You have 60+ chances to win one of 3- $2oo prizes!!!!  Go to this post to enter: Back to School $600 Giveaway!  You just need to leave a comment for 1 chance to win.  If you like or follow any of the bloggers, then you increase the number of chances to win.  Easy.  Good luck!!

OK, I know you are all dying to see the posts with the most votes!!  Actually, if you want to click over to the Share It Sunday 39 post, you will now see the links listed in order by vote!  Isn’t that cool?

There are 2 links sharing the top spot, with 3 votes each:

Kathy at Smile for No Reason shared a post on how to make a lightbox.   I LOVE this one, as I am always looking for a way to make my photography better.  And I can see that, even for non-bloggers, this would be a great idea.  Maybe you want to list something on eBay or Craigslist… this would make those photos so much better!

Smile For No Reason - Light Tent

The other post with 3 votes belongs to Kristi from Making it in the Mountains! She shows us how she re-did her kitchen table.  It is FABULOUS!  She did such a great job refinishing the tabletop and then took some Annie Sloan chalk paint to the base.  This is her gorgeous result:

All right! It’s your turn to show us what you’ve got.

Bring your BEST and let’s see who gets the top votes this week!!!!

Just a quick reminder…

Share It Sunday goes live on Saturday at 8pm CST and the link stays open until Tuesday at midnight.  Please share your best home decor, DIY, craft, recipe or inspiring idea.

The party is hosted by three bloggers, which means your links are seen by three times as many people.  Show some host love by stopping by our blog, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter and Google+ pages to like, follow, pin, etc. We will do the same for you too.  And we do!

  1. Thank you so much for hosting, I was excited to share my pavlova recipe! I would LOVE to participate in a giveaway sometime, should you decide to to another one! I am struggling getting FB, G+ and Twitter followers, even thought I use social media a lot! Please think of me in the future! Thanks!

    • Hi Chloe. Thanks for sharing your pavlova recipe with everyone! And I totally get the struggle to grow social media. I just keep telling myself…”one step at a time and don’t get sucked into the comparison vortex – so easy for me to do”. I’ll keep you in mind when I see another good giveaway, too.

  2. All of the features this week are so awesome. Thanks for hosting!
