Our Grand and Long Awaited Cinderella Party/Blogathon Link-Up and Giveaway Winners!


Here we are at the end of our wonderful week! And first and foremost, an enormous thank you to each one of you for all your contagious joy and excitement. Your participation truly made it such a sparkly, entirely incredible, epic occasion. Thank you all so much!!!  I'm so happy to have so many fellow Cinderella loving friends. You're all amazing. :)


This post has taken me a while to finish off as there are so many links! I've tried hard to make sure everything is accurate and links through properly, but let me know if I've missed anything and it'd also be great if you could test your link/s, etc. (just so we make sure no one gets lost). I've also included a few earlier posts/reviews that were linked in the comments. 

*drumroll* And now for our links themselves!

*And now a deep breath* Wow, what a week this has been!! I have a growing feeling it's going to be super hard to come down off this marvelous time... so I'm very purposefully concentrating on the coming pleasure of soon visiting all your wonderful posts (that I haven't been able to read properly yet) and also rewatching Some of My Very Favorites. ;)

Many blessings to you all, dear friends!!


How are you all doing wrapping up the party? Shall we stand by each other and keep smiles going round in this next week? :)

  1. Wow! What a fun week! Thanks for putting all of this together, Heidi! It was such a blast! And I am in awe, because it seems like this sort of monumental party would take a ton of effort and you made it look easy.

    I'm wrapping up the party by diving into another week-long endeavor with the release of my newest book on Monday... so no deep sigh for me just yet!

    Thanks again for hosting this, it was really fun learning about Cinderella stories I've never heard of and smiling nostalgically over ones I've loved forever and seeing that others love them too! :)
