Exciting News at The Hearth and Soul Link Party

Welcome! I have exciting news! The Hearth and Soul Link Party is getting a bright new look!

Exciting News at The Hearth and Soul Link Party

Over the next week or so I’ll be rolling out new logos and branding for The Hearth and Soul Link Party. I’ve been working with Laura of Pixel Me Designs, and she has developed some great new branding I can’t wait to share with you!

To start with, we have a new Link Party Button, which I feel reflects the inclusive nature of Hearth and Soul much better. If you have been kind enough to display the Hearth and Soul Link Party button already, I hope you will consider changing to this new version of the button. And if you were hesitating to take this step, I hope you will be tempted by this pretty, new button! You can find the button code in the side bar on the right.

I’ll be rolling out the new artwork across Facebook and Twitter very soon!

At The Hearth and Soul Link Party, posts about anything that feeds your soul are welcome – from family, home, decorating, crafts and DIY to travel, organisation, book reviews, the arts and self improvement. And of course, food from the hearth to feed your soul is a real favourite here too!

Even more exciting news – last week was one of the best weeks ever on Hearth and Soul, with more links than ever! I’m so excited and encouraged by the variety and the quality of the posts you are all sharing. Thank you so much for your support, and especially for how you support each other, visiting and sharing one another’s posts.

I’m a bit behind this week on visiting and sharing from last week as we’ve had a lot going on in our personal life. It has included a wedding, our son’s upcoming move and two trips, one within in England and one to California, where I am right now. I hope you will bear with me as I catch up over the next couple days. I’m also looking forward to doing lots of sharing of the posts you bring to the party this week.

Last week was National Vegetarian Week in the UK. I shared a post about how my family and I have changed our eating habits, benefitting our health, our wallets, our waistlines and the environment!

Don’t miss An Occasional Vegetarian – a post about how my family and I eat less meat, deliciously!
