Upcycles {M&MJ Link Party #122}

Welcome to Moonlight & Mason Jars!Moonlight & Mason Jars / M&MJ Hosts Graphic

Hi, friends! How was your Labor Day weekend? Aside from nearly melting in the heat, we had a rather eventful past week. First, we unexpectedly inherited a kitten that a stray mama cat abandoned near my in-laws’ house. And then, two months after moving out of our home, last weekend finally marked the big move into our next house! The renovations took longer than expected, and boy were we ready to be back in our own home again. Of course, when I went to schedule my Monday blog post just before the movers came and the chaos began, I discovered that there were some major issues with my blog. My wonderful tech support gal worked all day to get everything fixed, but when I got out my computer to hit ‘publish’ late Sunday night, I realized that I left my computer cord at my mom’s house and my laptop was dead. I logged onto my hubby’s computer only to find that the draft of my post had disappeared in the process of getting my site back up and running. So despite my best efforts, there was no recipe post at the beginning of this week…sorry! Then on Monday, my blog e-mail account got hacked and I started getting angry/cursing e-mails from people who thought I was sending them spam. Fun! πŸ˜› Anyway, the good news is that we are all moved in! Now to get started on unpacking those 235 boxes…

Moonlight & Mason Jars is a weekly party where bloggers are invited to link up some of their latest recipes, crafts, DIY projects, and seasonal fun (to be simultaneously seen on FIVE BLOGS)…and readers get to check out all of that talent in one place! That makes this a great place to find great new ideas and inspiration. The party goes live at 10:00 p.m. CST every Tuesday night and is open through the week for your link-up (or link-browsing) convenience. πŸ™‚ Thank you again for stopping by…it’s time to party! Moonlight & Mason Jars Link Party ~ goes live every Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. CST | FiveHeartHome.com

  1. Hi, Samantha ~ That stinks about your site and your email. I’m so sorry! Hopefully, getting into your new house and starting to unpack will help calm things down! I absolutely love this week’s features. I’m having trouble even picking a favorite! Thanks for hosting each week! I’m sending your lots of calm and peaceful vibes! :0)

  2. Why can’t moving be easier? I finally gave up on unpacking…I needed a break!! πŸ˜‰ I hope all goes well in your new home and the unpacking goes smoothly!!

  3. Oh my goodness Samantha – that is terrible! I’m so happy things got fixed but that certainly makes it so hard on top of the stress of moving. Hope you can wade through the boxes & start getting back to a better normal.
