Sharing is caring!

‘Tis the season! Can you believe Christmas is right around the corner? Where did the year go?

As the year comes to an end, we also will be ending our #FoodieFriDIY party. We had a good run! 123 weeks…over 2 years! It has been fun getting to know you all. I feel like I made lots of new friends through our party…thank you all for being part of this with us!

We had actually planned to go to the end of the year, but with me having surgery at the beginning of the week next week, we decided to go ahead and end a few weeks early. I hope you will link up anyway this week…I’ll be sharing some of the links you share over the next few weeks on my social accounts.

I do have some great new recipes scheduled on the blog and you’ll even see a few guest recipes over the next few weeks, so I hope you will stop by and visit while I’m out! 🙂

Before we get started, I want to share with you a couple of my newer recipes that would be lovely as either a hostess gift or for a holiday cookie exchange!

Now let’s talk about our features! Since this is our last week and Christmas is only a few short weeks away, I’m sharing some of my favorites for the holidays.

Ready for the party?

We’re not really a rules-type party. But here’s what we do ask. 

1. Link up your favorite recipes and projects from your own blog. Roundups are fine as long as they include links to the recipes or DIY projects. Please DO NOT link a post without a recipe, project, craft, or tutorial.

2. It’s not a requirement of course, but if you can, try to visit another link or two and leave a thoughtful comment. Give someone a shout out on social media. Use the hashtag #FoodieFriDIY…we’re trying to grow a community for all of us, and it’s always nice to make new friends.

3. We’d love it if you’d follow us on Pinterest.

Don’t forget after you get done linking up to drop by my Facebook page and share your favorite recipes or DIY project that you have linked up. I will try my best to show your post some extra love…please be sure to share either the link or the number in the link up so it’s easy for me to find it!

Let’s get this party started!
