SNICKERDOODLE CREATE BAKE MAKE LINK PARTY AND SUMMER FEATURES



Hi everyone! I hope you're having a wonderful Saturday. My mom, Donna, was previously hosting this party, but it's now me - Staci! Bear with me as I learn how to put all this together. I'm a mom of 2 kids who are a year and a half apart, and I wouldn't be surprised if I miss something with all the distractions that arise. I'm looking forward to co-hosting with all these other wonderful ladies, and seeing all the amazing things people come up with and write on their blogs!

SNICKERDOODLE CREATE BAKE MAKE LINK PARTY AND SUMMER FEATURES

Hello and happy July!  Hope you are having a safe and relaxing summer.
We have a lot of fires burning in our area of Northern Nevada--grateful for the firefighters who risk their own lives to protect life and property.  Sadly, livestock and wild creatures have been lost in these fires but thankfully no human life thus far.  PLEASE REMIND ALL TO BE CAREFUL WITH CAMPFIRES, MATCHES, AND FIREWORKS.  Authorities believe that illegal fireworks began the largest fire about 48 miles from where I live--it's up to almost 92,000 acres so far :(.
Onto happier things.  Snickerdoodle Link Party will continue on our blog but Staci will be hosting the party for us, not me.  There will be some other new hosts as well so be watching for new faces! 

Please follow your hosts on one or more Social Media Platforms.
