Valentines, Chocolate, and Blog Stuff

Oh, my!
Our 2nd What to Do Weekend Party was so FABULOUS and YOU made it fabulous!
Valentines, Chocolate, and Blog Stuff

JP from Sweet Inspirations has this most wonderful, rusted heart wreath!

Penny, from Penny’s Vintage Home has the most romantic mantel I’ve ever seen!

Rena at Jewelry Making Journal shows how to make this heart ring. It’s an amazing tutorial!

Cheryl at Sew Can Do has a great tutorial for lip balm which would be a terrific little Valentine’s gift (for girls).

Ya Gotta Have a Hobby made some of her own candy hearts. Amazing. She made a candy heart for her husband “One Hand – One Heart” a song from West Side Story. It was her wedding song. How sweet a story is that?

Brenda, at Chatting Over Chocolate, gives us Tigger Tails (we all know Tigger from Winnie the Pooh, right?). Even her name has the word “chocolate” in it. Nice.

Wanda, at Memories by the Mile, made a wonderful chocolate cake – a heart attack (because it has hearts on it).

Linda, at With a Blast, has made a seriously sweet, Valentiney dessert here. Wow.

Because we had several links for bloggers I thought I’d include some of them for those of us (I’m talking about ME here) who could use a little extra blog help. :)

Kim, at 2 Just B You, has a post about No Reply bloggers. Good stuff here.

Barb, at Second Chance to Dream, has some blogging printables for us.

Diana, at Diana Rambles, talks about how bad Captcha is (don’t I know it) – hope mine is finally off. I kept turning it off and it kept turning back on but I think it’s off now. Thanks, Diana.

One last, very useful, article, actually an E-Book by Court at Blog Builders had to be included. I think it was for sale at one point but is now open for all. I read the whole thing. I’m very interested in SEO (Search Engine Optimization) because it helps search engines to categorize your posts and make them more available to people around the world when they do a search online.

What to do Weekends was an amazing party. Did I mention it’s exciting to have bloggers come and link up to MY BLOG?
Thanks, Everyone, for linking up and have a great week!!

Hi there and WELCOME! So happy that you came by to visit.
I'm Linda. Though my sister and I started this blog, right now I’m the blogger person. We have a super creative family (my nephew even makes cabin furniture) and I try to log it all right here on Two Succulent Sisters.
I’m so looking forward to having you join me on my quest to learn new things and would love to have you join our community by subscribing via email or RSS feed.

  1. Wow, thanks so much for featuring my Conversation Hearts! :)

  2. I'm pretty new to this blog but I'm finding so much inspiration and education. I don't have a blog yet but someday before I'm too old to be able to see I hope to have one.
    I found blogs about a year or so ago and I've never been so stimulated or creative. It's like I can't get enough. I'm up til all hours reading the blogs,leaving comments, saving projects, printing out projects. It's like a free world of teaching. I find it so incredible that there are so many people out there so generous with their ideas, helpful.
    There are hardly enough hours in the days/nights any more to do all I want to do. It's because of exceptional blogs like this one. Thanks for being here and sharing all your knowledge. Happy Week

  3. Thank you so much for the feature! Have a great day :-)

  4. Linda, I am so honored that you chose my Rusty Heart Wreath to be among your choices to highlight from last weekends great party. I am looking forward to the next party...I have LOTS in store!
    Would love to grab a button for my sidebar, if you can tell me where to get it!

  5. good information and wonderful creations and goodies, thanks for sharing!!!!

  6. WOW...Thank you for the feature! The link isn't working, my link takes you to Tigger Tails. But aren't they fun, who doesn't love Tigger! :-)
    Wanda Ann @ Memories by the Mile

  7. Thanks so much for the feature on my DIY Lip Balm!

  8. So much great content on your blog posts! That rusted heart wreath at the top is absolutely beautiful. =0)
    And I thank you SO much for featuring my post about No-Reply Bloggers! The feature right below, about captcha, is also helpful (I turned that thing off right when it first appeared - LOL).

    Now following via networkedblogs.
    If you have GFC, I'll follow that way as well.

    1. PS - Gotta check out the DIY lip balm, and the tigger tails are TOO cute!


So happy you came to visit today. Everyone is so busy but if you would like to leave a note for me, I would love it!!
