Hey mamas! Sorry for the delay, but I am getting back in the swing of things here. I appreciate all the well-wishes you left about my surgery last week, and I am happy to report, I’m healing well and trying to play some catch-up! I’m less happy to report that I’m back to work today, but hey – we do what we have to do, am I right? :)
I cannot believe the amazing turnout in the last 2 weeks. I had over 250 links between the two weeks to go through. Don’t get me wrong – the only tough job is just picking a few to highlight, I love, LOVE seeing all this fabulous creativity collected all in one place.
First, some viewers’ choices:
Sky at Capital B shared a tutorial for these simple and bright matchbook-style notepads. Apparently, notepads are very popular, as the second-most-viewed link from last week’s party was Carlee from Ladybird Ln.’s Back-to-School Locker Magnets which also have a handy stash of post-it notes.
This week, the top clicks were for Lauryn’s zig-zag twist hair tutorial over at love notes by lauryn:
And Rachel’s beautiful embroidered art for her daughter’s nursery! You can find her at Lines Across My Face. And get this – she confesses that she has never really done embroidery before, so don’t be intimidated by the beauty of this project, she shows us even a beginner can do it. :)
Now for some of my faves! Mary at Sweetwater Style shared her tips for saving money on wedding flowers DIY-style. I did my own bouquets with fresh flowers for my wedding too, and I couldn’t agree more – if you are a flexible bride (as Mary points out as well), you can do this with beautiful results for a fraction of the cost!
Another link I was really intrigued by was one that Jenilyn over at Grits and Giggles shares with us, a tutorial on distressed art. If you missed this, check it out!
I love the eye-candy necklace that Terri at A Creative Princess made from candy-themed magnets scored from the dollar section! This one is simple, innovative, and easy on the budget – a great project for a kid (or just a kid-at-heart)!
How can you not smile at this one? I had so much fun reading this post by Mom E and the Joyful Three – she shared their car-themed family fun night.
