You're invited to link-up, share, inspire and be inspired -- A Little Birdie Told Me No. 25

 
"Yes, to be a good parent, you have to sacrifice, but this is not a requirement of parenting, it is a requirement of being good at something." 
~Robert Brault

It's been one crackerjack of a week, friends.  It's been challenging, exciting, satisfying, exhilarating, and joyful; riddled with moments of self doubt, humility, and loaded with new lessons, obstacles and triumphs.  There's been little time to spend here in my creative haven, Rook No. 17, or visiting those that inspire me most out in the blogosphere as I've focused my heart, soul and energies on the two cakes that were ultimately delivered to a wedding last Saturday.

To see more photos and to watch a 5 minute slideshow of how the firetruck cake was made, visit here:

 If you're a regular participant in the weekly creative sharefest, "A Little Birdie Told Me..." (thank you), you'll know that I pride myself in visiting everyone's links, reading & enjoying their posts, and leaving a genuine and thoughtful  comment.  It's important to me.

But here we are on Tuesday morning and I haven't visited a single link.  I don't want to rush through everyone's posts -- that's not my style.  

So, here's what I'm going to do:
I'm going to take my sweet time this afternoon, enjoying everyone's creativity.
Tomorrow, I'll post some features.

In the meantime, please link up your new posts below.  
"A Little Birdie Told Me..." has been gaining great momentum over the past few weeks, and it would be a shame to throw a blanket on the creative furor now.

------------------------------------------------

Just 4 SIMPLE GUIDELINES

1)  JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE NICE -- COMMENT AND FOLLOW

2)  LINK-UP -- Link-up the URL of a specific post -- craft, recipe, DIY project, or anything else you'd like to show-off.  This is not  a place to advertise merchandise you are selling.  If you're interested in promoting your business with Rook No. 17, please visit the "Advertising" section.

3)  POST THE BUTTON OR A LINK-- Grab the code for the button (below) and paste it into your sidebar or the body of your post.

4)  VISIT the 2 LINKS AFTER YOURS --  Linky parties only work if we all do our part to support and encourage one another.

HOW TO:

2) right-mouse click and "Select All", 
3) right-mouse click and select Copy. 
4) Paste the code into your sidebar or post.
