Have you heard about the Outdoor Pledge?


Enjoying Whidbey Island, WA this summer

The Outdoor Pledge is a challenge from the outdoor outfitters at REI to help people get outdoors with their family and friends. As part of their ongoing efforts to inspire, educate, and outfit people for a lifetime of outdoor adventure, REI invited 10 BlogHer reviewers to take the Outdoor Pledge.

2nd Saturdayz in Snohomish this Weekend

2nd Saturdayz

Hello! I am a BIG fan of the 2nd Saturdayz Market Flea Market here in the Seattle area.

Promoters/Vendors Linda Morrison and Deb Bock have this crazy talent for creating and displaying vintage and up-cycled things. I have an immediate two-step reaction when I go to their flea market. It throws me into a swoon and then I quickly whip out my wallet. It's 2nd Saturdayz's one year anniversary this weekend and the ladies are celebrating in style. The show will be in Snohomish this Saturday May 14th. And I am darned excited! See you there…. 


You’re All Invited!

Hi Friends…  You are cordially invited to join Katie's Nesting Spot and Yesterday on Tuesday for "A Crafty Soiree."  This will be a super fun party where you can share your art, crafts, decor ideas, recipes– pretty much anything creative.  Here are the details:

What:: A Crafty Soiree

When: Thursdays

Where: Yesterday on Tuesday and Katie's Nesting Spot

What to Bring: BYOC (Bring Your Own Creativity)

The coolest part?  Add your link(s) to a party at either of the blogs and it shows up at both.  It's double the fun!  To help us get ready, we'd love it if you'd post one of our party buttons on your blog.



Katie and I will pick three random projects to feature each week.  And those folks will get this cute ribbon button to put on their blog.  Miss Katie created the button and all the graphics for this weekly get together. She's multi-talented as well as creative!

Hope to see you at the Soiree, starting next Thursday.  BIG Hug!  Malia
