Welcome to our VERY FIRST LINK UP PARTY of 2013!

January 2013 020
I cant tell you how excited I am to have this link up every Wednesday, and see what you have been doing and sharing over on your blog! Each week I will be featuring the blog that received the most hits from the previous week, and the link up will be open until Saturday after the link up.
Entering your link is super easy, just click on the widget, and enter your URL link. It may take a little while to appear, but it will, just check back in a little bit!
The Welcoming Wednesday Link Party is open to anyone who is sharing posts from their blog in the following categories:
DIY: what crazy creations are you concocting over on your homepage this week?
Faith-based: Do you have a word of encouragement, life lesson, or heart speak to share with readers? ( please note, this is a Christan faith based blog, and this is the genre I am looking for..)
Family-based: growing and raising a family is important stuff, and we want  you to share your latest!
Herbs: Are you growing them? using them? Learning about them? Share with us!
Gardening: if you love the dirt, then this link up is for you!
Frugal ideas: We can ALL use more ideas on how to save money, time, and to reuse, recycle, upcycle, or retrain our brains to put more money in our pockets!
Canning or preserving: Got a recipe? Want to crow about your latest accomplishment? Dare to share your failures? We are right here waiting for it!Homesteading: We want to live vicariously through your efforts, so please give us updates on your homestead and all its accomplishments:Preparedness: I am a firm believer in being prepared as much as you can be and not relying on someone to swoop in and save you, so posts dealing with this are welcome!
Please no giveaways or affiliate links without prior permission. Our rules are super simple:
PG rated.
Nothing vulgar or crass will be tolerated.
In fact, a single verse comes to mind when I am looking for the heart of posts to be shared on this link up: “Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things!” (Philippians 4:8)
Be sure to link back here to the Welcoming House post so your readers can see all the wonderful posts from the Welcoming House community! You can find the code for my  button right over there on the right side, just edit your post, go to HTML, add the script at the bottom of your post and click update.
Ready, set, go!
Many blessings to you and yours,
