Next year's Celebrate Oz.............

I had a blast. Thank you to all the participants, the visitors and to all of you who encouraged, got the word out and made this so very much fun. Could not have been better. All the right people blogged about all the right things and we have shared our love of L. Frank Baum's creative beginnings that have blossomed into so many different views of Oz and the characters therein.

Yesterday was the best.

I am going to leave the participants list up for 5 more days so that all of you will be able to visit all of the blogs.

I'm already thinking ahead to Celebrate Oz 2013. I know, I know, and the answer is yes, I am quite outsane thank you. Only I've gotta do some networking and playing and have a strategy to get even more folks to participate and come have input, and fun. If you have any ideas....shoot them to me in an email.

We will be back on the spring schedule, The Wizard willing and the creek don't rise. As a matter of fact, there is a new Disney movie called Oz the Great and Powerful which will be coming out in March 2013. Here is the link, so that you can go and see for yourself.

Once again congratulations to all the wonderful ones who graced us with  your talent, views, writings, makings and fun times.


  1. Great blog party, Oma Linda! And thanks for leaving the link list up a while longer -- I've only made it to about half the blogs so far. Will do the rest this weekend.

  10. This was one of the best blog parties yet and I had a great time seeing how all of these fun-tastic party people celebrated Oz. Thank you for hosting this fun event and count me in for next year. I've got more Oz related things to share. :0}

  11. I am sad that I was not able to participate and look forward to joining in 2013.
    Maybe you can do a mini hop around the time of the movie debut just to get people excited for a summer larger hop.
    Possibly also having a facebook event in March? I have no idea how those things work but I have attended several.


I love to hear from you. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
