Making Monday [#18]

Welcome to this week’s Making Monday link party.

We’re so excited to see what you’ve been up to this week.

I hope your Christmas season is wonderful and that you’re making cherished memories with your loved ones.

The party where you can find fun new creative ideas and tasty recipes shared by amazingly talented people.
Every Monday bloggers stop by to link up their posts and share with all you party goers.
By joining in {both bloggers and non-bloggers} you will discover new blogs,
be inspired to make something new, try a yummy new recipe, and most importantly make new friends!

This party is hosted by Gracie and me, and your projects will be shared on both of our blogs.
We love that you’re here and we love featuring you on our social media so be sure to follow us so you can see if your post gets shared!

We also pin to our Making Monday pinterest board and we’d love to have you follow along!
This is a place you can find projects from all the previous parties, too, so it is like a party every day!

This is what your hostesses have been up to lately:

      You’re welcome, Leigh Anne. I actually just made your coffee cake over the weekend and we loved it. I used some of my homemade strawberry jam instead of raspberry.
