The Dedicated House

Now, onto this week's party!

Here are a few guidelines to follow:

1. Link up anything Family friendly...DIY, decor, crafts, recipes, gardening, shopping finds, sewing, inspirational stories, and beautiful photography. 

2.  If you are participating in Make it Pretty Monday, be sure to link up your "permalink" post and not your general blog address. 

3.  No etsy shops and giveaways.  I might have a separate party for those when I see how well this one goes. 

4.  Please grab my button below, or have a link back to my blog so everyone can enjoy the party! No Link Back, No Feature.  Boo!

5.  Please become a follower of The Dedicated House via Google Friend Connect or Linky Followers.


Wishing all a grand day!  Remember to be kind one and pop back in later this week for a visit.
