There is an old adage that says no one except a wet baby likes change.  None-the-less, change is in the air here at An Extraordinary Day.

I have had the privilege of co-hosting the Project Inspire{d} Link Party for the past 8 months.  It’s been wonderful meeting and getting to you.  I’m amazed each week at all the talent you bring to the party.  And frankly, each week I have found it so difficult to choose just a few projects to feature as you all have truly extraordinary ideas!

This is my last week as co-hostess of Project Inspire{d}.

I’m going to miss partying with you. But, I do hope you will continue to pop over to An Extraordinary Day and leave your warm remarks from time to time.

This week, I am sharing features from last week’s party.  However, if you’d like to link up your posts, you’ll need to visit one of my co-hosts to do that.

Speaking of co-hosts.  Thank you…Mary Beth, Malia, and Stephanie for allowing me this wonderful opportunity.  I’ve so enjoyed getting to know you and collaborating with you each week.  I wish each of you much success as well as continual growth of Project Inspire{d}.  Big hugs to you all!
