Wonderful features! My heart goes out to those in CT. Both of the books you highlight look great – wonder if they have one for cats?
The Connolly’s WILL be writing one for cats and I am definitely looking forward to it!
Thank you for featuring my paper trees. What a lovely surprise it was to come over and see it. Thank you, I’m honored. I also want to thank you for hosting this party as well. Enjoying it. Happy and Safe Holidays.
Your project was fabulous Dalia – tnanks for sharing it with us!
I’m glad I could surprise you… usually I leave little love notes letting everyone know they’ve been featured but due to the holidays, there just isn’t time for everything! 🙂
As the holidays approach – I want to wish you a very merry holiday! I truly enjoy seeing all the creativity here every week!
Thanks Carolyn – you too! Thank you for all of your fabulous contributions this year!
Thanks for the party! The dog book looks interesting. A good gift for a relative of mine!
Awesome! Be sure to order it before the 24th to take advantage of the discount on the author’s website! 🙂

You’re welcome Jerri – have a wonderful week!
You blessed my heart, sweet friend! May the Lord be glorified.
Thanks again for hosting the Inspire Me Monday hop! I see there is quite a wide variety of creative posts that have been linked up. Thanks also for including the verse in Rev. for the children who have gone to be with the Lord. They are now safe and away from the pain that those who are left behind are having to go through. The people of CT and the friends and family who live further away are in our prayers.
Thanks for “If I should die before my dog.” Thought-provoking idea, and it should work well for me, a dog lover.
Thank you for hosting every week ! Hope you have a lovely day 🙂
Thanks for hosting. Have a great week! Lots of baking & Christmas crafting for the holiday season is going on. I hope this finds you enjoying & finding time for the same.
So enjoyed my trip through your features. I hope you have a Meaningful Christmas as you celebrate our Savior’s birth!
Thanks Pamela – you too!
I enjoyed Jolene’s essay. I’ve been keeping Christmas very simple since the 90’s, but it’s not always easy. The temptation to do more than we can afford or have time for is always there. Anyway, it’s good to have reminders like Jolene’s to keep our focus on the Lord and our relationship with Him.
Thanks you so much for featuring my post ‘Dreaming of a Green Christmas”. I am truly honoured. Thank you! Rebecca x
How wonderful to see that you’ve featured my croissant recipe! Thanks so much and Happy Christmas to you all!
Thanks for the lovely features & for hosting, & God bless!
Thank you greatly for hosting each week. I hope you’re enjoying the holiday season!
Today I shared two recipes: a hearty minestrone soup for those cold winter nights, plus a strawberry apple butter that will make you wish for spring!
My prays are with the Families In Newton Connecticut today.
Thanks so much for hosting!
