the weekender 1


Christmas is now just three weeks away (that’s 21 days or 504 hours) – eek, Christmas is coming! I love December, it’s my favourite month of the year – it’s the time of advent calendars, Christmas shopping and lots of yummy food.


As the big day is getting so close, Lorey and I decided that this week, the theme for the link up would be ‘Christmas Cheer’. We’d love to know what Christmas cheer means to you and your family, and how you like to prepare for the festivities.

A Little About the Weekender

The Weekender is an awesome Themed Link Party! It runs from Friday to Sunday, with the week’s theme being announced at the Party’s opening on Friday! The theme will always be somewhat broad so you can bring your own interpretation to the table, feel free to think outside of the box!

Have an idea for a new theme? Sock it to us! You can reach Lorey at and Beth at! We hope to hear from you!
