|Today is the final week that we will be linking to Amy at Love Made My Home for Five on Friday, from now on it will be hosted right here on the Fast Blog!|
|Five on Friday with Love Made My Home|
1) Five On Friday
Many of the blogs I follow and indeed many of the blogs that follow me come from the Five on Friday link up. I started joining in with Five on Friday when I first started out blogging and it really helped me connect with like minded people and grow as a new blogger. Amy has built and amazing community, full of positivity from people all over the world and all different walks of life. I am incredibly thankful that I have been able to be a part of it so far and feel completely blessed to be able to carry the torch for Amy from now on.

2) Christmas Card Swap
What a fantastic idea! We joined in this year and it was great fun to make a hand made card for someone and exciting to open the one they sent us and see the effort they had put in. I think it's great to connect with people in real life and get to know some of our blogland friends better. I hope I can talk Amy in to hosting it again this year or if it is too much hassle for Amy to do alone at the moment then perhaps she could help me to co-host it here as I think it is something we all loved taking part in.
3) Basildon Park
I for one have LOVED hearing about Basildon Park and getting to have a peek inside through Amy's photos, what a beautiful place. Some of the pictures of furnishings and decorations inside I think I would have totally missed if I had visited but Amy has made sure we all got a chance to see some of the hidden treasures inside this fantastic country house. From the crimson bedroom to the time that Downton Abbey filmed on site there has always been something interesting or fascinating from Basildon Park that Amy has shared with us
How could I forget the Podcast! For me it was the first time I got to put a face to the name behind Love Made My Home and I always love being able to see and hear the people I am friends with in Blogland. I think Amy has the most wonderful accent and she sounds exactly like I thought she would whilst teaching us all about the yarny things she loves. I have started trying to crochet and I must admit I am totally terrible at it so hopefully I will improve with time!
|Amy from Love Made My Home|
I just had to use the photo that we all know and love from Amy commenting on our blogs each week! They say a picture paints a thousand words and we can see from this one that Amy is always the lady behind the lens and even her camera strap is all about yarn!
Amy is such a lovely and genuine person, always full of kindness, friendliness and love no matter what life throws at her. The community that she has built with Five on Friday is something to be truly proud of and I will certainly miss her hosting the link up and I'm sure we'll all still be visiting her blog and keeping up with her :)
