Sharing Saturday 15-48

Thank you to everyone who shared with us last week!! Even with the issues I had with Linky Tools last weekend, there were many amazing ideas shared. I had trouble choosing between them for features!!

The features for this week include Christmas, Holidays and Parenting and Gift Advice.

From Your Hostess

Now for This Week's Party 

A Few Simple Guidelines: 

1)  Link any kid-friendly, child-centered post. Please no etsy shops or giveaways, etc.  Remember to link to your actual post and not to your blog home page. If you have a general adult-made craft you should share at Crafty Weekends!!

2) Post the Sharing Saturday button on your sidebar or somewhere on your blog to help spread the word.
