Home Matters Linky Party #33

Welcome to the weekly Home Matters Linky Party. A great place to come, share your blog posts, and make new friends.

This is Home Matters Party #3 for me.  Which means I will be sharing just one more Home Matters Party with you.  And two weeks left of April means that there are just three weeks left until Mother’s Day!  Don’t worry, I have some fabulous Mother’s Day Gift ideas to share on Monday.  Now, on to the party…

Home Matters Linky Party Guidelines:

We are thrilled that you came by to link up today! Here are a few rules that hosts and co-hosts of the Home Matters Party follow, and we ask that you follow them, as well.

            1. Please link up no more than THREE posts each week–try to make sure that they are new links that you have not shared here previously. (Exception: Holiday/Seasonal specific posts may be shared once per year.)




            1. Please take some time to poke around and visit some of the other links.




            1. Please take some time to check out your hosts and co-hosts on social media.




            1. We appreciate the variety of blogs on the www; however, the Home Matters Party is for links on matters of the HOME. Please link accordingly.




            1. We ask that you do not add other Linky Parties, Blog Hops, or Giveaways–unless you begin the party with a new project, recipe or post.




            1. On the same note, please do not add links of an extremist, political or strong controversial nature. (The hosts and co-hosts read each and every blog post linked, and will contact you directly if you have linked something that does not fit into the realm of the party.)


With your help, we can continue to grow the Home Matters Party! Thank you!   [Tweet “LINK UP your blog posts at the #HomeMattersParty – The Door is OPEN! #Linky #Blogging”] By joining the Home Matters Linky Party you are giving permission for all hosts and co-hosts to use and share any part of your post, including pictures, for party promotion, as featured posts, in party photo collages, on blogs and across social media, etc. All credits will be given to the original source.
