Ultimate Blog Party 2011!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

It’s time to get your party on at the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by the lovely ladies of 5 Minutes for Mom.  This is my 4th year to “attend” the UBP (my how time flies!), and it’s always great fun for one and all!  If you’re new to blogging or unfamiliar with the party, go check it out!

If you’re visiting from the UBP, welcome to Simply Sweet Home!  My name is Jerri, and I’ve been blogging here for three and half years.  The goal of my blog is to share recipes, ideas, and products that can help make your home a simply sweet home!
If you become a follower of Simply Sweet Home, here’s what you can expect each week:

Monday – Weekly Recipes
Tuesday – Giveaways
Wednesday – Craft Project / Home Decor / Jewelry / Misc.
Thursday/Friday – Friday Favorites Linky Party
Weekend – Product Reviews and Sponsor Spotlights


Friday Favorites Party
I’d love for you to come back and join in my weekly linky party!  I’ve been hosting Friday Favorites for 57 weeks, and each week we have 100+ posts linked up.  You can link up recipes, project, tips, etc.—-basically anything you consider to be your favorite post for the week.  And each week I feature 5 of my favorite ideas from the previous week!
