See it Here! Photographic Evidence of the Retro Party Aftermath

It was all a blur.

There were words, brilliant words. And phrases. Phrases and ideas and images all thrown and mixed together like the punch I drank once in college. Intoxicating enough to deliver a buzz, but without the hangover.

I asked and you delivered. Monday’s party is proof that the WP community is the best! I didn’t find any broken furniture, people went home in their own clothes, and you left the place even better than you found it.

In case you’re popping in for the first time this week, I hosted a blog link party on Monday where writers shared their retro posts as well as those of their friends.

Wanna know who won the drawing? Of course, you do! I wanted an excuse to pull out my neglected camera, so I photo documented the results of the drawing. I also played with abstract editing, so don’t think it’s your eyes. (I hope Ray doesn’t see this) It’s amateurish at best, but fun!

The readers and writers (two pages worth!)

The moment you realize, “It is my circus, and these are my monkeys!”

Drum roll, please…

Congratulations! See it Here! Photographic Evidence of the Retro Party Aftermath!

Congratulations to Kristen from Bye Bye Beer!! Kristen took the time to not only submit one of her early pieces, but also two of her bloggy buds. Kristen will receive a gift card from Etsy – my favorite new obsession!

Post-publication edit: Well friends, I just heard from Kristen. She told me that a little birdie actually linked her posts and that little birdie did so in stealth. Kristen opted to send her gift certificate to that little birdie. Congratulations to Josie at A Miracle is Around the Corner! More evidence that we are so good at taking care of and supporting each other. Thank you, ladies. xo

  1. Oh my gosh…feel like I missed out. Sorry, Michelle, been planning my kid’s birthday party and so much on my mind. My loss for sure. But some great posts here nonetheless. I know some of these bloggers and must get to know the rest!

    1. You NEVER miss out if you choose being with your kiddos over being in cyber space. I’ve been busy this week, too. I completely missed my Monday Morning Marissa fix 😦 Trying again next week. Happy birthday to your kiddo – Halloween baby?


      1. OMG…I’m such a doofus. Did you not get my telepathic message?!
        Yep. In my head I said “YOU are awesome” …funny how the shiny objects actually kept me away for the keyboard when I was thinking of it. Love you C/K 🙂

  2. Awesome party, still wearing the lampshade on my head but will just leave it on for Halloween. Thank you for hosting and for the feelings of warmth and connectedness.

    P.s. The punch thing…I once spiked my late great-aunt’s beloved punch recipe for an around-the-world dorm party in college. Don’t remember much about that night, but still make the punch, which is much better without the booze.

  3. I was still recovering from your blast to the past party when the Halloween spirit overtook me and I did the Monster Meet and Greet Mash on my blog and well, needless to say, this week has, indeed, been a blur! 😉
    Thanks again for the awesome party, here’s your lampshade back, and thanks for the shout-out (feeling spoiled…please continue). 😉
    Hope this weekend treats you well. 🙂

    1. LOL! I totally get it. Totally!
      Hubs says that I’m an introvert with a social side. Those bursts typically last long enough to publish, and then a disappearing act for several days after. Thank you for popping into today, though. I love seeing you here 🙂

    1. Bahahaha! I know, Handsome. I am so sorry. My guest post series starts Monday (officially). I travel all this week and then 12 out of the next 15 days after that. It’s my goal to conjure your questions and send during that time. Thank you for your patience, my friend. I haven’t even had time to get to my hairdresser – I’m needing a serious dose of brunette from a bottle (bazinga!)


    1. LOL! You wouldn’t say that if you saw my cursive. Too many years writing in hospital charts has produced horrible penmanship. I know that no one will ever worry about what’s written in my diaries because they are not legible…at all!
