By Golly! I think I will!

Did the big blue green paint chip below draw you in?  I bet so!  But....if your thinking I'm going to paint my den this color you'd be wrong.  Gotcha!

The picture above is merely symbolic.  It represents (one) issue I have been struggling with for some time, a new paint color for the den.  I really want a change in my den and have ideas but am still unresolved on a few things.  

If you have stopped by here at all in the last week you may have seen me mention a linky party idea HERE that I had about offering up our decorating dilemmas.  Well, to make a long story short, I'm going to do it.  I'm going to host it!  I am going to put myself out there and take a risk!

Because I'd rather avoid more risks like choosing the wrong color and having to redo it.

Let me also be a bit blunt here, I had very, very little feedback on this and most intelligent people would assume that meant there is no interest in this idea. Maybe, but I think differently!  I still think  and believe whole heartily that this a great idea.    I think there are many of us who would like to get more specific feedback about our decorating issues rather then relying on our own posts and our own immediate group of followers.  Some of us (case in point,like me) don't even have a large group of followers to successfully get the feedback we need.  So a linky party that specifically address's those issues could definitely provide that!

It's no secret that a linky party can grow your blog.  If you are a long time follower you all know how I've had my struggles with linky parties.  I have not decided to host this linky party just to grow my blog but because I truly believe in the concept of the party I want to host.  You should know that hosting a linky party also costs money so it is not something I would enter into lightly.  Although, if this party takes off and helps to grow my blog that's great because that means you who link up your dilemmas will also benefit too, right?

Gotta love Cheez-its!

I am still working full time in retail with hours that change every week.  I work 8 hours a day and sometimes two of those shift are nights as well as weekends.  I tend to have Sundays off and usually one other day during the week.   That extra day off changes each week which is why I am writing this today as I am off.   I am begging for a little advice and help from you. I would love any input from those of you who host a linky party AND anyone reading this who thinks they would participate from time to time.  Remember this party is for us to link up our decorating dilemmas and receive advice from our online decor friends.  Big and Small projects, inside and outside!  

   1. I think this party would be best suited for every other week.  Would you agree?
   2. Which day do you think would be good for this?
   3. What should I be prepared for?  LOL!
   4. Would you like to vote on a name for this party?
   5. Do you think I should create a button?  Any volunteers to do this for me?  Please!
   6. Do you think I am crazy to do this?
   7. Would you be will to help promote this party so that those who attend can get the feedback 
        they are hoping for?  Purrty Please Yall!!!

Well, okay, I stop jabbering away now so you can reply.  I know your out there and I do want to hear from you.  Come on, help out a sista out!
