A Few Of My Favorite: Tutorials (2010)

Well, 2010 is almost over, and boy was it a busy year! Kevin’s actually not off the hook quite yet. He’s gotta work ’til after midnight tonight…

(He’s a rock n’ roller, and rock n’ rollers almost¬†always work on New Years Eve)

So while he’s out doin’ his thing, I’ll be quietly ringin’ in the new year here at home, Layla-style. Snuggled in bed, with my laptop- lookin’ through all those lovely links you left for us yesterday! And I must say, I’m very excited about spending New Years Eve with you!

And, hey, thank you for making 2010 so much fun too. We’ve had the best time blogging about every little thing throughout this past year, but “meeting” and sharing some of the days our lives here with you made it even more super-cali-fradge. We’re sending a big ol’ round of virtual bear hugs and butterfly kisses your way today!

Now onto today’s “A Few of my Favorites”! This one’s all about Tutorial posts. Here are a few of my favs from 2010…

Do you have a favorite tutorial post on your blog you’d like to share? If so, we’d love for you to link it up!

Here’s how you do it:

– Scroll down ’til you see the little blue “add your link” button. Click it, and follow the steps from there to add your link and a small photo. (Make sure to create a descriptive name for your link, like “Pottery Barn Lampshade” or “Mason Jar Lights”. This will make it easier for folks to browse.)

– Also, be sure to link to your specific tutorial post, not the main page of your blog.

– Here’s a button to add to your blog post if you’d like to invite readers over to our party!

    Layla — my hubby was a professional musician for years…so I’m familiar with your New Year’s Eve! :) Now that he’s hung up his guitar (kinda), we love staying home together. LOVE your blog and all you two are accomplishing. Can’t wait to follow along in 2011!
