Welcome to Eat Make Grow Thursday! My favorite day of the week where you share what you have been eating with your family, growing in your garden or making with all your creative impulses.Whichever blog that you choose to link up your post, it will show up on both sites! This blog hop is a way to share with many people posts about your domestic doings, whether that’s growing veggies, hosting parties, sewing, mixing up cleaning supplies, or trying out a new recipe. We want to learn about it.
This is our first hop! We are pretty excited.
Marigold from Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky!
Foy from Garden. Cook. Write. Repeat.
Meet Marigold! She's a mother, but not a mother to this child, that one's mine. She's got two bouncing boys of her own. She writes, crafts and photographs over at her blog Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky!.
Marigold throws her boys awesome birthday parties like this ping pong party and this Harry Potter party. Plus you'll find lots of tutorials and crafty ideas on her blog. She's the one who inspired me to do the "Summer of No Pants". I only wore skirts for a full summer and now they are a regular part of my wardrobe. In fact, I am wearing one right now.
Marigold and I go way back. Back to when our husbands were getting their masters in Savannah in 2005. We both had blogs. Not these blogs, we weren't as focused yet. I admired Marigold's excellent turkey stuffing and her quirky sense of style. She wears bright bold colors of lipstick effortlessly. Then came graduation and I helped her pack their apartment up and move. Then we moved. Seven years later we are in different states but our blogs have kept us connected.
Marigold and her family live in California. Recently they visited us in Indiana. Marigold and I got to plotting about some sort of joint blog venture. The fruit of the conversation is this spankin' new blog hop. It's a combination of Marigold's love of sewing, hosting and crafting with my passion for food and garden. We hope to discover lots of other bloggers with similar interest and learn about what you all are up to. We want to invite you into our blogging neighborhood. Come share with us!
We’re not big fans of rules so there are just two of them for this blog hop:
Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Eat Make Grow community by sending your readers to all of the other participant’s posts. We will feature two posts each week from the following week. We will only consider posts that have a link back.
No big corporation or business advertising or promotional posts. Let’s not dilute Eat Make Grow with junky posts. We don’t mind helping out the little home grown businesses of independent bloggers or handmade merchants (Etsy, etc.).
