Link Party Highlights #31 – “Turning the Daunting Into the Do-Able”

 Hello everyone! I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend.

I’m in Sacramento this week helping my step-daughter (Tracie) prepare to move to Fresno.  She has her hands full with 4 active boys.  I love being here with all of them.  Being a grandparent IS THE BEST!

You all have been busy with some amazing projects!!  Oh my goodness!!! I really enjoyed going through them all this week.   I have  a “bookmark” on my computer with “Crafts to Make” and “Recipes to Try”.  It’s beginning to be a very long list.  I also have the same categories on Pinterest!  I better get busy :-).

Here are some amazing projects that I’m highlighting this evening.

Daena from Bad Rabbit  Vintage turned an ugly duckling cabinet into a beautiful swan.

She did an amazing job – complete with harlequins and fleur de lis’.
I’m in with this beautiful swan.

 I’m lovin’ this adorable Upcycled Clipboard that Melanie from Artzy Creations made.

So darn cute!
Wouldn’t this be a GREAT teacher appreciation gift?

Stephanie from Lady With the Red Rocker describes this Chocolate Oreo-Cream Cake as SINFUL.

Definitely looks sinful to me.
Don’t you agree???

 Remember Bethany from Pitter and Glink’s adorable lamp that I highlighted last week? This week, Bethany revealed her new craft room!

She used lots of  happy, crisp, and fresh colors.
Head over to her blog to see the rest of it!
Yes, I have craft room envy :-).

 Carri from Simply Done Wright  made such a cute mosaic heart on a brick.  Guess what this is going to be?

A door stop!
She has a great tutorial on her blog.
I’m pinning this one… yup, my “crafts to make list” is growing!

M.L. from House of Whimsey made this Vintage Enamel  Floral Pin Bouquet. 

I think these are amazing.
Would you be brave enough to carry a bouquet like this
instead of fresh flowers?
I would!

Jody from Meaningful Mama made this scrumptious Chocolate Mousse Cake from Martha Stewart’s recipe box.

Jody says that these beautiful desserts are very time consuming,
but what a fabulous dessert to make for entertaining.
You’ll look like Martha Stewart yourself!

Maysem from Ode To Inspiration made these amazing Knock-off Anthropology Vases.

She has a very easy to follow tutorial on her blog.
Great job, Maysem!

Cyndi from The Decorating Chica “stole” these  Stenciled Frames.  I cracked up when I read that she is a thief!

Because apparently I am too :-).
She is an “idea” stealer… aren’t we all?
You are not alone Cyndi!

Marilyn from 4 You With Love made these summery Pink Lemonade Cupcakes.

This would be a perfect snack for those end of the year parties.

Lorrie from Finding Secret Treasure made a Room With A View.

She used a Cutting Edge Stencil and an old window.
Fabulous view!
What a great idea for a bathroom without a window.

If you were featured, I’d love it if you grabbed a “feature” button and pasted it on your blog.

You can find the HTML Code in the right hand side column.

Thank you everyone for joining the party this past week.
