A Great Idea for Helping Google Reader Followers

I saw this post the other day from Attempting Aloha and I thought it was a great idea to include a link back to your blog at the end of posts to make it easier for people to click over if they want to.

I figured it can't hurt, and it saves you the trouble of having to scroll back up through your reader to find the title of the post you want and click on it.  We'll see if it's helpful.  I know I'll be watching for it on other blogs now!

(Also, what do you think of the wording I used at the bottom?  Does it seem like I'm begging for comments?  Would you rather just see the blog name hyperlinked?) 

And now for something completely different!
Have you seen this idea floating around on Pinterest?

It's a wedding invitation that's been cut into strips and curled up in an ornament to give back to the couple for their first Christmas.  I thought it looked so cute that I had to do the same for my brother and his wife.  Plus, their invitation had such great colors.  

It won't really be a surprise I guess if they see it here first, but it's not like I came up with the idea either.  Maybe they'll end up getting several of these and get to decorate their whole first Christmas tree with them!

Anyway, I discovered that shiny ornaments are so hard to photograph when you don't know what you're doing (and I don't) but here are a couple of the decent shots I got.

Plus I added their initial and the year in vinyl.  Hopefully they like it--or 10 of them!

  1. Totally cool idea. Got to try it for Christmas

  2. This a great idea! Such a good way to incorprate the wedding. You are just busting out ideas you find on Pinterest, aren't you! I love it!

    You were featured last week do you can grab a button and I would love to have you link up again! It's up today!

  3. I think your link at the bottom should go to the specific post, not just to the main blog page. At the main blog, it's still another click before one can comment.

  4. Great idea! And no I don't think you are begging for comments. I am new to your blog, you came and checked my topiaries out. I am going to have to take a look AND I have a question. If you come here and craft will it rain? I live in Texas and most of the state is in drought conditions, I may have found the key! :)

  5. Great interpretation! I stumbled this!

  6. I am sure they will love it, it turned out very pretty!

    Glad to have found your blog through Ma Nouvelle Mode's link party :)

  7. What a great idea! I still have leftover invitations, I want to do this for our own tree!!

    I would love to have you drop by Happy Hour Projects and link up at Freestyle Friday - the linky is open all weekend!


  8. I want to try this too!!!


  9. LOVE THIS! where did you get the glass fillable ornament?

  10. Anonymous--I picked it up at Michaels. I've seen the glass ones in packs and single plastic ones.

  11. Great idea! I'm sure the couple would love it!
