NO RULES WEEKEND BLOG PARTY #216!



We are now a few days into 2017 and the decorations
are packed away, and the snow that we did have
has disappeared. I'm pretty sure we will get more 
snow this winter, and there's always something 
to celebrate in my family so the fun will continue.

Last January I followed the trend with choosing
a word of the year that would be my mantra. I
really had good intentions to let this word guide 
me, but that didn't turn out so well. 

I should have known this would happen as I have 
never been able to follow through with a New 
Year's resolution, so this year my intentions
will be to just try to do the best I can with
everything I do. 

Have you made a New Year's resolution or chosen
a word of the year? Leave me a comment and
share your thoughts on this!

   Now it's time to share what you've been up to below!

Are you ready to find some new blogs to 
read, and perhaps gain some new followers? 

Or maybe you'd like to grow your social networks, 
or make a sale or in your Etsy shop? 
Come join the fun :)

The party normally runs from Thursday mornings 
at 6 am US EST until 3 am US EST Monday. 

If you follow me in any way  please leave 
me a quick comment and I will follow 
you back as soon as I can :) 

If you'd like to display my party button on 
your blog, just click on the "My Buttons"  
tab on the right sidebar to access the code.

 Sharing helps direct more lovely 
bloggers to the party, which in turn means 
a chance of more traffic for all of us!

Let's party!

  7. I love the idea of picking a word as a resolution. I'm still thinking about which one. It might be...choice.
    Happy New Year!

    1. I do like the thought of choosing one word for the New Year. Now I'm second guessing myself about not choosing one. I'm undecided now lol. Happy New Year to you, and I'll be looking forward to seeing what word you choose if you decide to pick one :)

  10. I'm not usually any good at keeping new year's resolutions either. I thought about choosing a word for the year but figured I wouldn't keep with that either. I did try to set a few small goals and resolved for a few things NOT to do this year.

    1. You're the second one to chose "kindness" as a word and that is perfect! I think I will add that to my list along with "joy" which was mentioned by Shelbee above. Thank you for sharing each week Karren :)

  19. This comment is for Number 16 on your list - I can't leave a comment as I'm not any of those things that will let me leave a message. It's good to see you again Paula for a while back in 2016 I thought you had stopped Blogging.
