A Sorority is Born

UPDATE! 1-29-2011


The Sorority has moved to


Bloggerette Sorority.


Please click on the above link


to take you to the new location


and join up!




Ok then - it's been decided!


A Sorority is born!
I'm so excited! 

And amazed! It seems all of you want this as much as I do. It's awesome that we all feel the same way about this wonderful world of blogging! The camaraderie we have developed between all of us speaks for itself.

And there are so many more Sisters to meet! 

What fun we shall all have! Parties and giveaways, tours and workshops, sharing creations and ideas - all of this is in store for all of us. From home decor to crafting, our days will be full of fun in the months ahead. I've received some AWESOME ideas for our new Sisterhood from all of you and I am really looking forward to bringing it all to fruition. 

Let's begin. To join  you must ~

1.) Become a follower ~ 
Now you know how I feel about this,  I only want you to follow me if you desire to but, it's been explained to me that this makes hosting future Sorority events much easier. And easier is good!


2.) Spread the word! 
Please post about this. Let the whole world know about our Sorority and let's share our excitement for this wonderful world of blogging. The more the merrier!

3.) Leave me a comment on this post. 


Please! In your comment - leave me an Email address and your blog name. 
You may send it to me in an Email if you wish.
 I will automatically add you to our Sorority Sister list.

4.) Grab our button ~ (located on my sidebar)
Each of us will post this button on our sidebar to show we are Sorority Sisters in the newly founded (ahem . . . drumroll please!)


"Bloggerette Sorority"



6/28/10
Rush is over - we had a marvelous time! 
But there will be another one in 
either 6 months or 1 year.

You can still join! 
Just the follow the directions above!

WELCOME!

  
** The rest of this post is the original.
Now everyone knows to be initiated into a Sorority - you must "Rush"

Your rushing preparation will take place between now and 

June 25th.

Then on that Friday ~ 
we will announce our Sisterhood!

To rush you must do the following:

 Take this picture . . .



and create something with it. 

A banner, a hanging, an ATC,
a piece of jewelry, a tag, a card . . . anything!
Print the picture and place it in a frame -
 it doesn't have to be fancy! 
Just use your imagination. The possibilities are endless.
You have inspiration all around you.
After all . . . that's what our blogs do - they inspire us.
This can be as simple or as elaborate as you like.

Then take a picture of your creation.
There are no rules.
Well - except one. 

You must be in the picture too. 

You can always take a self-portrait in a mirror.
Because we all want to see who are
"Sisters" are!

Then post your picture the day of our
Sorority party.

Friday - June 25, 2010


I have commissioned . . . the one ~ the only Karen Valentine of Valentine Design to create this beautiful button for all of us. Thank you Karen! You are awesome!


I am so looking forward to this! Exciting times ahead!


Thanks everyone!

Pedí fuerza, y el dios me dio dificultades para hacerme fuerte.

Pedí la sabiduría, y el dios me dio problemas para solucionar.

Pedí prosperidad, y el dios me dio el cerebro y el queso de cerdo al trabajo.

Pedí valor, y el dios me dio peligro para superar.

Pedí amor, y el dios me dio preocupó a gente para ayudar.

Pedí favores, y el dios me dio oportunidades.

No recibí nada que deseé, pero recibí todo ese I necesitado

No matter where you travel, may your family continue to be safe and happy, it's great to see there are still some good people walking this Planet, Regards Sean

I'd love to join! It seems we have a lot in common: crafting, camping (in our little Casita!), decoratin, being dishaholics, etc., etc., etc. I couldn't help noticing the Ovarian Cancer Awareness graphic on your post...my sister, Nancy, just passed away after a 6 year battle with ovarian cancer and my blog is a tribute to her and all of the creative things she and I loved doing together. Please, please, please add me to your list! My blog is My Sister's Cottage and my e-mail address is lawsonch@maine.rr.com. I've added your link to my blog. Best to you!

TMWW said...

Hi Karen! I know the sisterhood is currently taking a bit of hiatus until a new sister can take over, but I wanted to join as well! I've been reading your blog and some of the sisterhood posts and it seems like a truly wonderful idea!

I am currently a follower and I have my blog post up HERE.

I hope things calm down for you and you are able to really enjoy the holiday season!

Merry Christmas!
