Friday Favorites – Week 254 – Featuring Valentine Crafts + Still Taking Apps for Linky Co-hosts and Contributors

friday favorites

Hey everyone!  Welcome to another fun week of Friday Favorites!  Unbelievably Valentine’s Day is just over a week away, so today I’m featuring a few craft ideas for the occasion.  Hope you like them!

Also, I’m still taking applications for linky party co-hosts and blog contributors.  If you’ve already applied, thank you! I’ll be in touch shortly!  If not, please do apply.  You can Apply Here.  And just in case you are unsure about applying, let me just give you a quick run down on the requirements.  First off, you don’t have to have a certain number of followers or subscribers to apply, and even if your blog has only been around for a short time, that’s okay too!

A few people asked about the work required to be a party co-host.  So here’s a quick rundown: As linky party co-host, you would be required to host a shared linky party on your site.  Apart from including the linky code I send you each week, you would need to include the party banner and co-host information supplied to you.  And then each week you would just go through the posts, just like I do, and pick a few to feature on your site (photos and links included) and also pin your selections to my Friday Favorites pinterest board.  Finally you would just need to promote your party post on your social media sites.  And that’s it!  It doesn’t really require a lot of your time each week; however, I am looking for people who will be committed to posting.
