Last-Minute Christmas Ideas + HM #263

Well, my friends, after more than six years of hosting the Home Matters Linky Party, I am passing the torch. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you and seeing all the amazing things that have been shared over the years.  Although I am moving on, the PARTY WILL CONTINUE with Donna from Modern on Monticello as your Host. Keep creating and sharing your blogs with Home Matters.

As for me, life has changed over this past year. My writing (novels) is taking off, and I need to focus more on that at this time. My story, The Sozzled Flapper (A Lilia Loverly Mystery), was an Award Winner in the 88th Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition. I write Cozy Mysteries under the pen name, Abigail Leigh Reed. If you’d like to follow my journey, please connect with my author social media accounts:

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

TODAY, the gals of Home Matters are bringing you some fantastic and easy ideas for Last-Minute Christmas. Hop around and enjoy!

Home Matters Linky Party Guidelines:

We are thrilled that you came by to link up today! Here are a few rules that hosts and co-hosts of the Home Matters Party follow, and we ask that you follow them, as well.

  1. Please link up no more than THREE posts each week–try to make sure that they are new links that you have not shared here previously. (Exception: Holiday/Seasonal specific posts may be shared once per year.)
  1. Please take some time to poke around and visit some of the other links.
  1. Please take some time to check out your hosts and co-hosts on social media.
  1. We appreciate the variety of blogs on the www; however, the Home Matters Party is for links on matters of the HOME. Please link accordingly.
  1. We ask that you do not add other Linky Parties, Blog Hops, or Giveaways–unless you begin the party with a new project, recipe or post.
  1. On the same note, please do not add links of an extremist, political or strong controversial nature. (The hosts and co-hosts read each and every blog post linked and will contact you directly if you have linked something that does not fit into the realm of the party.)

With your help, we can continue to grow the Home Matters Party! Thank you!
