Welcome to Homemaker Mondays

Thanks so much for stopping by!

For the most recent Homemaker Monday, click HERE.

Welcome to...


...a different kind of carnival. Here are the rules:

1. Enter your screen name in "MckLinky" (this form will be posted at around 12:00 AM every Monday) followed by a three or four word description of your post in parenthesis, like so:

mom2my9 (blackberry smoothies)

Your post can be about anything having to do with homemaking. And it doesn't have to be a new post. Search your archives and share your know-how! You could consider topics like:

Cooking
Baking
Raising Kids
Gardening
Sewing
Decorating
Saving Money
Studying Scriptures
Crafts
Housekeeping
Food Storage
Organizing
...or anything else that has to do with making your home a better place. You can even share homemaking disasters, because we can all learn from your mistakes!

2. Enter the URL of the post you want to enter, NOT your home page, otherwise I will have to go through and fix it. I might get angry and you wouldn't like me when I'm angry! (jk) If you don't know how to enable individual post pages, just go to your dashboard, then SETTINGS, then ARCHIVING, then ENABLE POST PAGES.

3. Please leave a comment and add my button to your post. You don't have to, but it's just polite to do so! :)





Grab the code!


One last thing. If you'll notice my graphic...


...you'll see the words "yours, mine, and ours". This means that each week I will feature my favorite submission from the previous week- "YOURS", then I will post my homemaking tip - "MINE", and finally I will post "Mr. Linky" and we will all enter our posts - "OURS"! If your post gets featured, you can put this button on your sidebar if you like...


Grab the code below...


So, I hope to see you each and every Monday! Let's get together and enrich one another's lives!

Hi Trivita! Thank you so much for inquiring about Homemaker Monday! I encourage you to write a post, then enter the permalink post title into my Mr. Linky posted each Monday on my home page. Or, if you prefer, you can just post a tip in the comment section, whatever you prefer. Also, please feel free to use an archived post. It's all the same to me. Thanks for your visit today and I hope you have a great day!

I would love to receive your posts via email. However, I got the following message when I tried. :-(
"The feed does not have subscriptions by email enabled."
