I have been waiting for today for such a long time now! The launch of Think & Make Thursdays is officially here! A great group of bloggers and I have teamed up to bring you a fun link party where you can share your amazing projects and creations with others AND browse around to find other people to connect with. So without further ado, let’s get this party started!
Welcome to Think and Make Thursday, a brand new link party designed to share Bright Ideas for the home with you each week! For those of you who aren’t bloggers or who may be new to the link party concept, link parties are a great way for you to find hundreds of different ideas for the home all in one place. At link parties, bloggers share their latest and greatest DIY projects, home improvement projects, crafts, recipes, kids stuff and home-related tips. Simply scroll to the bottom of this post and you’ll find great ideas in all of these areas!
Bloggers, we’re so glad you’re here and can’t wait to be inspired by your Bright Ideas! Think and Make Thursday will open at 6 AM ET every Thursday for you to share what you’ve been working on with a chance to be featured the following week. When you link up at Think and Make Thursday, your Bright Ideas will be seen across 7 fabulous blogs:
Every week, the seven of us will be choosing our favorite Bright Ideas from the party to share on our own blogs the following week, giving you an even better chance of being featured! Since this is a brand new party, we thought we’d kick things off by introducing ourselves and featuring one Bright Idea from each of the hosts. If you love any of the Bright Ideas we feature, please click through the link to pin from the original source, not from Think and Make Thursday.
