Creative Goodness at QuiltShopGal

~ Create ~ Share ~ Inspire ~ #CreativeGoodness ~

Welcome to another weekly #CreativeGoodness Linky Party.  I’m certainly enjoying all the sharing of inspirational projects.  Last week, there were many inspirational projects that I hope you have a chance to click thru to visit the blog post and sharing in Flickr, as you may be delighted to learn more.  Here is one sharing that caught my attention and could have been easily overlooked, if you didn’t click thru:

Mary (Quiltin’ Grandma Designs) shared an inspirational post to celebrate Easter, as well as a yummy recipe to make Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs.  And, she also shared insights on a new pattern she has designed “Through the Hourglass), which is a lovely design that looks like it would be fun and fast to make.

Mary has a fun blog where she shares oodles of tips and inspirational quilts, along with her own designs.  I hope you’ll click thru and visit her blog.

As always. our weekly #CreativeGoodness Linky Parties are open for any form of creativity that you want to share, so long as it is your own.  It is optional to share something for the theme of the month.   While not required, I do appreciate it when bloggers share a current post and encourage others to come share their creativity.  I also hope everyone will click thru and visit all of the entries, for more inspiration, as well as to check out the blogs that have shared, as they frequently have very creative blogs with oodles of #CreativeGoodness.

Monthly I randomly select five participants to receive “Surprise Prizes”, as my way of saying thank you for participating and sharing inspirational creativity, tips, and sometimes tutorials.  If you have received such a prize, it is up to you to decide if you want to disclose what that surprise was.  But maybe you’ll want to leave a comment on this post to share what you won.  Totally up to you.

Monthly “Optional” Themes:

– April: Pastels, Spring, Easter
– May: Blues, Greens, Creams, Flowers
– June: Whites, Brides,Weddings, Anniversaries, #KidfriendlyProjects,#SummerCamp
– July: Red, White and Blues (Patriotic), #KidfriendlyProjects, #SummerCamp
– August: Summer Colors, #KidfriendlyProjects, #SummerCamp
– September: Primatives, #FallGoodness
– October: Orange, Black, Purples
– November: Primatives, Browns and Blacks
– December: Holidays, Sweets, Blues, Silver, Reds, Greens, Whites, #GlitterGoodness

Guidelines:

1) Sharing is quite flexible and open to Bloggers and non-Bloggers.

2) Like non-Bloggers, Bloggers can share old things.  But, of course, I do appreciate those that take time to write new posts, as well as those that encourage others to come join these weekly parties.  As you can only share an old project one time, you’ll need to remember if you shared it previously.  Thus, sharing new blog posts is so much easier to know if you have previously shared (or not).  I do want to clarify, participants in other challenges (eg. 2015 FMQ Challenge) also have the option of sharing in these weekly #CreativeGoodness Linky Parties, as appropriate.

3) Non-bloggers can participate in weekly linky parties by using Flickr.com and uploading a photo of their projects to a Flickr group “CreativeGoodness.  They can upload as many photos as they want to share to this Flickr group, but they are only allowed to link 5 photos to the linky party (any weekly linky party). And, once they’ve lined a photo they can not share that link in future linky parties.  Links shared must also fit the weekly theme for the respective weekly linky party.

4) When you join one of these linky parties, you automatically give me approval to snag a picture from your post, whereby I can share it in a future post with a link on my blog to highlight your project.  To clarify, periodically I will showcase a participant and their entry to help increase awareness and inspire others.

5) Winners of “surprise prizes” will receive an email.  If they do not wish to claim their prize, or they do not claim it within 5 days, their prize goes back into the “pool” for a future drawing.  Due to my schedule, no prizes will be awarded for June-July-August, but we’ll have a larger prize pool in the Fall that will include participants who shared during the summer months.

6) A new linky party will be hosted on QuiltShopGal every Friday.  I hope you’ll come join the fun.

Email QuiltShopGal if you have questions at Darlene at quiltshopgal dot com.  Of course, I’d also like to hear any suggestions you may have too!
