Keep Calm and Link Up #16

Welcome back to Keep Calm & Link Up!


Happy Thanksgiving!!

Last week’s party definitely topped the one before! Thank you all so much for taking the time to stop by each weekend!! We expect that many of you will be taking the time to enjoy friends and family this Thanksgiving evening and the rest of the weekend. Hopefully, when you have a moment, you’ll be able to link up.
Before we talk about our fabulous features for the week, we wanted to remind all you participating in the Handmade Holiday Ornament Exchange, that you should have received an email last weekend informing you of your partner! We will have a link party opening soon to share all of your handmade goodness, so make sure to take plenty of pictures! You are welcome to share both your creation and the ornament you receive. Remember, to ensure that everyone gets an ornament before Christmas, please plan to have your gift postmarked no later than Wednesday, December 5th!
Now on to our awesome features from last week…
