Dishing It & Digging It Link Party #260

Hello friends, Christine has decided to end the Dishing It & Digging it Link Party. I am willing to host  a link party  all by myself, so if you are game and want to continue sharing your awesome posts, leave me a comment on your thoughts. If some of you are interested, I would keep the Sunday day and time.
I would call it - Love your Creativity

July 1, I set a pretty table in front of our waterfall.

I held a fabulous  "Hello Gorgeous"party for some gal pals on Friday, so I shall be sharing some photos this week.

Your host this week is:

Hello everyone! Hot and sweltering describes our week here and jam packed. Every time I turn around real life just keeps interjecting and I have not had time to blog even when I wanted too. My Internet Router broke and talk about feeling like we live in the dark ages with no internet and relying strictly on my cell phone!

I also have an announcement. This year seems to be the year of change for me and one of the changes I am making is just getting back to basics. So I am sorry to tell you that we will no longer be doing the Dishing It & Digging It Link Party. Lately it just seems like work and that is not why I started it and what I want it to feel like either. 

So....this link party will be the last one.  I hope you continue to visit.

Let's talk Features from last week's party.

About Linda @ Life and Linda

Hello, welcome to LifeandLinda. I am from Northern California. I enjoy blogging, Designing Blogs, Decorating, cooking, entertaining, gardening and clogging. I hope you enjoy your visit.


  1. Hi Linda! So sad that the dishing & digging it is ending. I certainly can understand, however. Unfortunately, my subject matter would not be so conducive to decorating etc. This week I've brought a serious subject, "Hidden Chemical Exposures", identifying them & ways to reduce them. Hope you have a wonderful week & thank you for hosting.

  2. Oh Linda so sad to hear the party is at an end! It was one of the very first I ever participated in and to bee featured. I do so understand the amount of time and effort it takes. Not sure non bloggers can appreciate the amount of work it takes to create just one post. I might bee slow, but on average, it takes about 8 hours for me to create a post with photo editing, etc. Will continue to look forward to your latest.

  3. Linda, I hate to see that Dishing It Digging It is ending. I have so enjoyed coming here each week and seeing what everyone is up to, whether or not I have a post of my own to share. I don't know how many talented bloggers I've discovered through your party. I think it would be very exciting if you'd continue hosting a party, so count me in!

  4. I've always loved joining the Dishing It and Digging It Link Party and hate to see it go, but Love Your Creativity Link Party sounds fabulous and I'll be there, for sure!

  5. I'm sorry to see Dishing It and Digging will no longer be a party, but count me in to join your Love Your Creativity party, Linda. Thank you for hosting and I'll be there next week.

  6. Sorry to hear that Christine is bowing out of hosting the party but I do understand the time it takes to do so. I appreciate the fact that you are willing to continue with the party and renaming it. I will be here every week with something to link up should you chose to keep going! I believe that Link Parties are a way to get exposure even if you do not blog for monetary profit and a way to meet new people and see some amazing creativity so I applaud you for being willing to continue!!

  7. I am sorry to hear about this party ending but I do understand. I think it would be really nice if you start a new link party Linda and I would love to share there!
    Hope you have a nice week.
    Hugs, Julie

  8. Oh I'm in this situation also, about not knowing if to continue blogging, no less to continue hosting a weekly party, which I'm sure takes time and effort. You will be missed and I want to thank you for having me posting all these years, at one of the best parties in blogland.
    God bless you.

  9. Linda, I must have missed the notice of the party closing. I am sorry to hear that but it must be a lot of work for all you ladies and we all appreciate it so much. Hope everyone had a happy 4th..Judy

  10. Thanks so much for hosting! I’m linking up with Grandbabies or Grandchildren – What Do You Call Yours? Also my Canvas Factory Review and Giveaway (be sure to enter, ends July 30). And I’d like to invite you over to my Short Story Prompt Link Party 7 (no story is too short, join us for fun and creativity, ends July 12), and my UNLIMITED Monthly Link Party 2 (open for 25 days, come and link up with us, ends July 26). I'll see you on Sunday at your new party, thanks for the invite!!

  11. Thanks for another lovely party, Linda.

  12. Of course I will join your new party, Linda. Thank you for taking the torch.
