We’d like to take a moment to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

This will be the last party for 2014, as we will be taking a two-week break to celebrate with our families. But, we will be back and raring to party on January 9th, with a fresh new look and rejuvenated enthusiasm.

So enjoy the party, and let’s make this the biggest and best Home Matters Linky Party of 2014.
