New Year/New Name – Best of the Month – January 2020

Happy New Year and welcome to the January Best of the Month link party!  Yes, it’s a new year and our party has a new name.  From now on, instead of a weekly party (Best of the Weekend), our link party – Best of the Month will open on the first Friday of the month and will close on the last day of the month.

Just like before, we invite you to link up your creative posts which may include home decor, DIY, crafts, recipes, tips and more!

Let’s get started…
