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.
