.:Market Yourself Monday:.

Happy Sunday! Or Monday! Whenever you are reading this.

And I guess Happy April Fool’s Day – if there is such a thing. I don’t really get into it, and hate when I fall for silly pranks. I know, maybe I’m just a crab, but I’ve never been into it.

A significant April Fool’s Day memory that I have is when my dad was out of town on business (I think I was in 5th or 6th grade) and he called us on the phone. He told me there was a spider crawling on me, and I immediately dropped the phone and started freaking out (I have a ginormous fear of spiders). But yeah. He told me that. While on the phone. Duh, Sumo.

But April 1st does mark the start of April, and April is important because it is my birthday month. This year I’ll be turning 29. For the fourth time. What?

Anyway, time to see what you lovely folks have been up to. Let’s just refresh ourselves on how this works: tutorials, crafts, recipes, shops, giveaways – you can link it all! I know it’s not possible to put a text link or my button for all of those things, but if you can, pretty please link back!

And just because a post shouldn’t be without a picture, here’s my three little turkeys. We’re having jammie day today as we listen to our church leaders talk.


PS – Giveaway tomorrow! You’ll love it!

  11. Hello! I am no pro Sushi maker, but my tutorial will teach the at home chef how to make easy Sushi-sans raw fish. It's very healthy, cheap to make and so yummy. Hope you enjoy! Thanks for hosting the party once again. Have a great week!

  12. Thanks for hosting such a great party! I always love coming here for inspiration. Can I ask, how did you get so many to join your party? I am on my ninth week of hosting and finding it hard to grow. I've tried reaching out to five people a day but am not getting as many repeat submitters as I'd like. Any advice would be so appreciated!


    Happy Easter to you and your family! April is also a big month in our house too as both my girls have birthdays this month! Happy Birthday to you!
