Best of the Weekend {Week 34}

Happy New Year everyone!! I'm so excited to be ringing in 2014 with my newest Best of the Weekend linky party with 3 other amazing bloggers. 

When you link up to Best of the Weekend, your posts will be seen on all four of our blogs. Have you seen our party board on Pinterest? We are pinning as many of your your fantastic projects and recipes as possible, plus tweeting and sharing on Facebook for lots of added exposure. 

Claire, Lisa, Cindy and I will each feature the most clicked link and our favorites, so be sure to stop by all of our blogs to see if you were featured!

To start the year off, we are each featuring some of our favorites from past parties.

We can’t wait to see what you have been working on!
Please be sure to read through these easy GUIDELINES before linking up.  Thanks in advance for being awesome like that :
  • Please follow the four party hosts in some capacity {Blog, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, G+, email}. We all have cute little buttons to make it easy for you. Then leave a comment and let us know how you’re following us, so we can follow you back!
  • We would appreciate it, if you would add a link back or add our party button to your party page. The more exposure our party gets, the more people that see your wonderful links!
  • Link up to Three posts but please make sure it’s YOUR work and No giveaways, link parties, or anything you are selling . PLEASE link the ACTUAL blog post link to your recipe/project! Not your homepage or a third party site.
  • Please note – By linking up to Best of the Weekend, you are giving us permission to re-post your links/photos on pinterest, facebook, google+, and twitter!
  • Lastly, please take a second and click on two or three links right before you, and say something nice. It only takes a second to encourage someone else and I think we ALL know how great it is to get a sweet comment on something we worked on.
That’s it. Easy, right? Let’s celebrate 2014 and party!
