You must be curious as you clicked on today’s post!
First of all, Natasha and I would like to personally thank everyone who supports our parties each week!
I do hope everyone has as much fun as Natasha and I do!
This week’s party is heading towards 400 submissions!!!
The B-U-Z-Z of E-X-C-I-T-E-M-E-N-T is electrifying!
People coming to our parties have shared they enjoy seeing what other bloggers share whether a tutorial to learn something new, a DIY project that is fun “for children of all ages,” and/or someone’s favorite recipe sharing a story or two behind the foods; like my Honorary Royal Title extended to me while in Egpyt via Are You Curious About Egyptian Cuisine?
How about how romance was in the air this week in creating Joanna’s Romantic Eggplant Stuffed Cannelloni for my good friend Viktor who got into a bit of strife with United States Customs?
It is in the “sharing and caring” I believe that makes people happy about Pay It Forward posts!
Let’s face it, who amongst us doesn’t like to read other people’s comments on our post?
Who doesn’t enjoy when people LIKE them on Facebook, FOLLOW them on Twitter and Google + and comment and share on all of those too?
Who doesn’t think a Random Act of Kindness in Pay It Forward posts would brighten any person’s day?
Are you curious which submissions caught my eye from last week?
Of course you are!
Not in any order (as you know by now I don’t play favorites), I’d like to introduce you all to the above blogs that are featured by What’s On The List; all will be contacted personally and all can proudly share my “You’ve Been Featured” on What’s On The List badge on their blog should they wish to!
Today, I decided to share these blogs as after all, food, eating and Pay It Forward experiences like real life, is “all about fun!”
Starting with the top left, Dan from Platter Talk‘s Pumpkin and Chocolate Cheese Bars “jumped” out at me!
Tis the season to be pumpkin’ed eh?
I loved the story behind “those who were making jack-o-lanterns” and how there was and still is “pumpkins all over the place!”; a good read in addition to Dan’s “first bonafide recipe creations.”
HOW scary and fun is Shamene from Say it with Cake‘s Halloween Cake with Meringue Ghosts?
I like how Shamene shared she “wanted to make them green so I could look like the cake got slimed.”
I think the coloring in great and initially I thought the meringue ghosts glowed in the dark; perhaps they do, but it will be Shamene’s secret to reveal!
I must admit I am fascinated with anything henna too and have not had to courage to try it, but when I say Khadija from Creative Khadija‘s Halloween Pumpkin with Henna, I loved it too; especially how she “tried over a fresh pumpkin” her mom was about to cook and how after designing and photographing, she washed it and returned it to her mom to make for lunch!
HOW could I not like Carisa’s Something Special – Fall Tree Craft as inspired by The Ramblings of a Crazy Woman‘s Paper Towel Roll Fall Trees as appears on Stephanie from Spaceships and Laserbeams’ 14 Fall Party Craft Ideas for Kids?
I think almost every child growing up in the States makes something similar in kindergarten; I know I did and my parents saved it their whole lifetime; it made them smile too!
Kat from Home. Made. Interest‘s Something Wicked Halloween Printables SO spoke to me as Princess Svelana (of Are You Curious About The Treasure Of The Food Princess fame) and I used to pretend we were witches (good ones); ones who could cast spells on people who were not as good as we were!
Thanks Kat for making me smile and happy walking down Halloween Memory Lane!
Who amongst us has not been affected by cancer in some way?
I have survived cancer TWICE and KNOW that is NOT the way I am going to go!
But I do understand the reality is bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people; cancer is the “unluck” of the draw of life’s lottery!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and when I saw Michele from Sew Sweet Vintage‘s Pink Ribbon pillowcases which are available for purchase via here, I could not help but to include this in my featured post!
100% of the purchase price will be donated by Sew Sweet Vintage to a charity of your choice; Ships within the US only.
I thought Marti’s from Magna Artistic’s Photos sharing her Monday Motivation, Photo Courtesy of Silly Luv, was the perfect quote to share!
Last, but certainly not least is Mary from Bunny’s Warm Oven‘s Cream Cheese Apple Cake.
After “meeting and greeting” 370+ submissions from last week’s party, FANG was HUNGRY and this looked “yummy” and I can almost smell it now…YOU?
I hope I have made you happy viewing my Pay it Forward post today!
If you could pick just ONE of these, which one would YOU pick and why?
It’s all in good fun!
It “may” make you appreciate how difficult it is each week to pick “a few” of the many wonderful submissions who support our Say G’day Party!
