focus52 link up! February 6 to 12

Week six has been all about the ‘Love, baby’! L-O-V-E!  …are you feeling it? heh. Even if you’re (shudder) anti-Valentine’s Day, I hope you had a chance to get out this week and capture love in your projects, in whatever way you might interpret it.

(minds out of the gutter, people)

Me? I’ve been having a creative blast. The first time, truthfully, since I ended my 365 project. It’s the colors, I think. Vibrant reds, fun pinks. They woke me up :)

And I had fun creating the week6 freebie. It feels good to sit and make something that I want to make, rather than something I have to make, you know? I’ve been wanting to try my hand at subway art for awhile now, so this was fun for me.

I printed mine out in a 5×7 size, put it in a white frame I already had from the dollar store ($1! you can’t beat that!) and I totally love it. Cute decor for cheap makes me happy.

I’m thinking I might just have to make something similar for the next holiday.

Wait, that’s Easter. hmmm … not sure if I can come up with that many Easter phrases. Maybe.

You have until the end of our week6 to download the freebie if you’d like to have it. And if you do, or already have, I’d love to see what you’ve done with it! This one ended up in my daughter’s room and looks totally cute in there.


So how about you guys? Show me what you’ve been up to!

Link up below. (links must be to the URL of your actual work, not just to the site it’s posted in). Please don’t link and run – try to find some time to visit at least a few of your fellow 52’ers.

And don’t forget to add your work to the flickr pool :)

That’s it! Show me what’cha got. Show me some love!

Baby :)


NOTE: Linky tools will be doing some scheduled maintenance on Sunday at 1am CST (late Saturday night) and are expecting to be down for an hour or two, at which time the linky list below will not be visible. If you are here and there is no linky list showing, please try again in a little while. The down time will not affect any links already posted, so no worries.
UPDATE: Everything is working. We’re just waiting on the older thumbnails to repopulate. You can go ahead and link up as newer links are working fine.

UPDATE#2: (Monday PM)  and now it seems to be down again. So sorry guys. Try again in a little bit if the list isn’t here. I’m not sure what’s going on with the linky site update, but obviously they’ve run into problems.


EDIT:  Unfortunately, the link list for this post had to be removed due to numerous database errors on the part of LinkyTools. Although it was promised that links would remain, as you can see, they most definitely did not. Even after numerous (friendly!) emails to the owner, Brent Riggs, the issue was not corrected.  I’m sad that our member links for this post have been lost.

I have since moved the focus52 linking service to InLinkz and couldn’t be happier with the friendly customer service and ease of use. If you’re looking for a linking tool, I highly recommend them

    Yay! I actually finished early this week! I’m still going to this weekend to post something more romantic than me and my dog, even tho Sparky is a huge love in my life. :)

    Love your week 6 freebie, Jan. Looks so cool with that vase of flowers. Also, the pics of your daughter were so beautiful.

    that looks so great in the white frame with the flowers. I am going to download that art. Thanks so much!

    You know what? The more I look at the art in the frame, the more I like that style. In fact, I like it so much that I think I’ll buy myself a nice white frame, and maybe even create some seasonal “mini-posters” to rotate into it each month!

      I figured a visual was needed.
      Glad it helped! :)

    The linky never came back (even though the update says it’s there…I see no linky link). Here’s my post for this week:
