Great news....fun news....truly happy news!
I've been keeping this one under my hat [a rather large sombrero actually] for some time now and am fairly fit to burst with excitement. I've been in cahoots with a the most gorgeous lady, working on a special project and it's finally time to spill the beans.....yippee!
Many of you know the wonderful Laura of 'Happy Homemaker UK' fame....a 'sparkler' right?
If you haven't had the pleasure of visiting Laura yet I suggest you scoot on over after you've finished here and tap on her brand new front door for nice long visit.
She's just relocated to the most fabulous neighbourhood in the English countryside and I'm certain you would be a welcome distraction from the endless round of 'packing & rearranging' that follows a house move.
Once you've spent even the shortest time at her place you'll come to see why so many people pop in on a regular basis. Laura has created a truly wonderful space in Blogland which is always a delight to visit, particularly when there's a special event happening in the UK, such as the Royal wedding or the upcoming Olympic Games.
If you're thinking of visiting the UK [or perhaps a UK resident looking for inspiration for a little adventure] and would like some terrific insider tips, you really can't go past her "Do & See' segment.
This is jam-packed with up-to-the-minute tips and great tours, where Laura puts her own special stamp on each place she visits....believe me you're going to need to put aside some time for this as there's MUCH to see!
"But what about the news and the cahoots?" I hear you ask.
Well the other project that Laura is famous for is her 'Post Of The Month Club' which has been a favourite linky of mine since she started it last year.
Laura had the genius idea of creating a space where we could showcase our favourite post written in the previous month, then share it forward with what has become a truly amazing group of Bloggers.
In her own words:
"You've already done the hardest part of writing a really awesome post.
This is a great way to meet other bloggers and introduce your best work."
I know many Gifters already join in with this and that it's how I originally met some of you - great fun!
So here's where I share the most amazing news.....truly I'm most excited!
Laura has decided that the time has come to 'simplify her life and live more in the present' and is handing the baton for hosting 'Post Of The Month Club' onto me - wowsers!
So each month from now on, I'll be encouraging you to scroll through your posts and pluck out the one that you think truly sings then simply add it to the bloghop. How easy is that?
The end of the month is drawing near so keep your peepers peeled for the first linky coming up in the next couple of days. You'll be able to pop my newly minted button onto each post and in your sidebar to alert your own readers to the fact that you write for 'Post Of The Month Club' and I've no doubt that in doing so you're going to make some new friends too...
I'm so looking forward to this new adventure and can't thank Laura enough for the opportunity.
The sombrero has been popped back on the hat rack and I'm polishing my reading glasses and warming up the digits in anticipation of both reading and responding to all of your fantabulous posts.
In the meantime, scoot on over to share a cup of excellent English tea or a flute of bubbles [depending on the time of day & your predeliction] with Ms Laura who is always up for a chat...as you may well know!
