A Round Tuit (55)

MOTIVATION and INSPIRATION are the key factors behind my Monday posts and opportunity to link up and encourage, motivate and inspire each other....with your very own ROUND TUIT
Tuits are very hard to come by, especially the round ones. For years people have been saying, "I'll do it as soon as I get a round tuit". Well now you can have one of your very own, and all those jobs that have needed doing will finally get done!

Thanks to everyone who linked up last week,  we did grow again - this time getting 111 links! 

 Here are my favourites from last week:

First of all, this adorable dino herd from The Paisley Cupcake:
Aren't they cute?  And it seems once you start making can't stop!!
For lots more fun ideas from some wonderful ladies- head on over to their blog at:

Next, another clothes upcycle (you know I love them!)  A tie skirt from Doodle Craft:
She's even done Mother's and Daughter's versions! How fabulous!!
For more brilliant and inspirational ideas go to:

Aren't they just gorgeous??
For more great ideas, head on over to:

And now for our
most clicked on link of the week...

I LOVE the back on this and am definitely going to try this one for myself!
Wobisobi has some awesome clothes upcycles, so go and check out her blog at:

I'll also be featuring another couple of great links on facebook too!! - I might start doing this through the week to spread out the fun a bit more!!
For all those featured- please do grab a 'featured on' button from my buttons page!

Then link up more of your fabulous projects!!!

Now it's your turn -  link up your posts - maybe it's a project you've completed that you're proud of - something you have wanted to get done for a while and need some extra motivation to get going on it - or you'd just like some of that fabulous encouragement, praise and motivation that bloggers are so good at spreading around.

Remember if it's a clothes upcycling project, you can also link to my long term linky on the clothes upcycling project page here:
There are now over 125 amazing projects linked up now - keep them coming!

Whatever the reason - grab your very own "Round Tuit" button (see sidebar), and link up.
Then head on over to some of the other links and praise, encourage and motivate.
I'll feature my favourite posts next week.
(by linking up here you're giving me permission to use photos from your linked post on my blog)

So come on, link up - tell your friends,  share the encouragement by visiting some other blogs and let's get this party started!  We're aiming for over 110 links this week!

And don't forget to enter the giveaway too!

One more thing before you go!  I'm almost at the end of  my one month challenge to focus on growing my blog.  On Thursday this month ends and we'll see if I achieved my goals!! I do hope you'll continue to read my blog and come on Thursday for my summation of the month - and look ahead to the next month's goals.  Everyone has been so generous in following along with my progress this month, and sharing their own blogging knowlege and tips too!
Please come back on Thursday where I hope we will all share what we've learnt this month -and look forward to more growth and creativeness!!!
