Country Fair Blog Party: December 2015

I know this post was supposed to go out on the 1st but I have been gone for a couple of days and without internet, so here is the first Friday of the month edition of the Country Fair Blog Party!  Before I share the link-up for this month's Blog Hop, here are my three Blue Ribbon Winners from November's County Fair Blog Party:

Country Fair Blog Party Blue Ribbon Winner My Other More Exciting Self's Mexican Turkey Corn Chowder
Each month I fall in love with so many recipes that are linked up on the Blog Party and November wasn't any different.  I can't wait to try Lara of My Other More Exciting Self's Mexican Turkey Corn Chowder.  This will be a perfect soup to keep in my arsenal of warm-up meals this winter.  I love trying new soup recipes!

Country Fair Blog Party Blue Ribbon Winner Giftie Etcetera's 7 Smart Ways to Attract Readers to Old Blog Posts
I've been using Giftie Etcetera's 7 Smart Ways to Attract Readers to Old Blog Posts to heart since reading it last month.  She gives a lot of great ideas on how to reintroduce old blog posts and I have been utilizing some of her suggestions this holiday season with my weekly Holiday Check Lists.  This is a great read for all bloggers!

Country Fair Blog Party Blue Ribbon Winner My Husband Has Too Many Hobbies's Silver & Gold Clothespin Stars
My final Blue Ribbon Winner from November is a great craft for all ages to do this month.  Laurie of My Husband Has Too Many Hobbies's Silver & Gold Clothespin Stars is a fun and festive ornament craft I'm planning on doing with my kids.  This is an inexpensive and easy craft to do on a snow day or a lazy Sunday soon!

Link up to the December Country Fair Blog Party
I can't wait to see what great posts get linked up to this month's Country Fair Blog Party.  Country Fairs are all about food, family, friends, farming, animals, arts and crafts, canning, baking and more.  And that is what our our blog hop is all about too.  Feel free to join our Country Fair by linking up to 3 of your posts.  This blog hop is a great opportunity to check out new blogs, and if you blog yourself, have your posts reach a new audience.  Be sure to visit some other party goers and let them know you are stopping by through the Country Fair Blog Party.
