May 2020 – Best of the Month Party

Welcome to the May Best of the Month link party!  

Well, we made it through the month of April.  As we continue to take comfort in our homes, let’s try to motivate each other with our creativity.

As always, at this link party we invite you to link up your creative posts which may include home decor, DIY, crafts, recipes, tips and more!

Let’s get started…

Best of the Month blog party

 

Each month, when you link up to Best of the Month, your link will appear on both our blogs.

Let’s meet your hosts…

Before we begin this month’s party, let’s take a look back at our last party…

Every month, we share the most popular post from the previous party on both of our blogs.  In addition, each hostess picks a few favorites to share.  Be sure to check out each of our blogs to see all the features!

Also, remember to stop by our Best of the Month Link Party Features  where we pin the features each month!

Each month, I also share the features on my Instagram stories…so be sure to follow along!

 

TO GET US STARTED, THIS IS WHAT I SHARED ON MY BLOG RECENTLY:

It seems like a million years ago when we celebrated Easter at the beginning of April.  In my attempt to decorate a little, I decoupaged some plastic Easter eggs…

And since we haven’t been going out much, I challenged myself to make some easy DIY napkin rings with things around the house…
