October Is Here!

Monday, October 1, 2012


October is usually one of our busiest months.  So it is time for me to take a deep breath and plan away!

This week is going to be extremely busy, and I want to let my followers know what to expect this week  at Art @ Home.

1.   I am making the time to decorate for autumn this week.  I haven't done much (yet).


2.   This week we are celebrating Banned Books Week.  Please blog about your favorite banned book and link up this Friday, October 5th.  You can read my original post about it here.


3.   I will be hosting My Happy List for the entire month of October for Mamarazzi. I hope you will join me every Tuesday morning this month! Please help me support this inspirational link party.


4.   Le Mysterieux Carnival  is this Saturday, October 6th.  I can't wait! Are you participating?

Le Mysterieux Carnival Blog Party

After My Happy List tomorrow, I will be taking a brief blog break while I prepare for my Banned Books Week Celebration and Le Mysterieux Carnival.  I will not be posting, but I will be visiting you guys!

Until next time...
