Link Party Highlights #7

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a wonderful, restful weekend.

I’ve been seeing alot of blogs and they have pictures of SNOW!!! Oh, I’m soooo jealous!  I have to say though, that I wore a sweatshirt all day long today because our temperatures have dropped here in sunny California.  It was sunny, but cool enough to turn the heat on this morning.  I’m lovin’ it.

There were 92 link ups to #7 Party this week!  Might I add, that they were all amazing.  I can’t even begin to tell all of you how much I appreciate you linking up, sharing, and inspiring me and all of my followers.  THANK YOU!!!

I also want to remind you that I have another party going on…. Christmas Craft Tutorial.

You can click HERE to see the wonderful projects that have been linked up and all of them have tutorials so you can make them yourself.  I will be highlighting the 3 most viewed crafts that were linked up this past week on Thursday evening.

I’m also teaming up with a few other bloggers for yet ANOTHER link up party (which will be announced on Wednesday) and you definitely don’t want to miss out on this one!

Did I mention that I’m changing my name to “Party Queen”?  Boy, 3 parties goin’ on. I’m lovin’ it.

Let’s take a look at the highlights from this week.  These ladies made the daunting look totally do-able!

Heather from Common Place Beauty painted this gorgeous Vintage Cabinet with Annie Sloan’s Old White Chalk Paint.

Heather mentions in her post that this is her FIRST real furniture re-do. Can  you believe that? She used dark wax and everything! I can’t wait to see what the next re-do is going to look like.  Goodness Heather, I’m thinkin’ you got the hang of it!

Mary from The Decorative Paint Brush shared this amazing end table that she turned into a game table.
She built the design of it around a checkerboard.  Isn’t it amazing? I love it!  I’m a sucker for checks!
Okay, I’m just going to say it, “To paint this table like this is VERY DAUNTING to me!” BUT, I bet (thinking positive here) with some tape and a few stencils I might be able to pull some sort of design off.  Right? Right! But from the looks of it…I’m thinkin’ this baby is hand painted by Miss Mary and her decorative paintbrush :-).

When you’re out “blog stalkin” you need to stop by Housewives of Riverton.  Jenn decorated her daughter’s nursery and made covers for the switch plates and plug-ins…
Guess what she made them out of?  Scrapbook paper and Mod Podge! Great idea Jenn!

Need a great tutorial for an amazing Cornice Headboard?  Laura from Corner House Blog (and her hubby) made this lovely headboard for their master bedroom.

You have to head over to her blog.  You’ll be amazed at the transformation of their bedroom.

Marcy from the AntiqueChase shows us how we can spruce up our book bundles.  She says, “I was walking the house looking for more quick and easy stencil projects and spotted some bare naked books…”

Amazing what a stencil can do.  I can just see her walking around with a stencil in her hand…”Ok who’s next???” I bet her animals hid under the bed!
Jennifer from Jenn Diggs, definitely had Fall on her mind when she made this beautiful apple pie.
She made the top crust out of leaves with a little fall leaf cookie cutter from Target. What a GREAT idea.  So simple!

 

Now these next two ladies get the award for re-cycling to the MAX!!!  I’m naming them the RE-CYCLE QUEENS!!!

 

Missy from Lookie What I Did made a grocery bag keeper…
All she used was a leftover box, some burlap that she had and some Mod Podge.   Too cute!  I just had someone the other day(can’t remember who it was) tell me I needed to figure out a way to store extra plastic grocery bags….well whoever it was….this one’s for YOU!

 

Susanne from Avsusanne linked this up from the other side of the world (Norway).  The Internet just amazes me…. wait till you see this.
.Wanna guess as to what it’s made of????  A toilet paper roll!!!! Can you believe it??  She used a napkin and Mod Podged it onto the paper toilet roll, punched a hole for a tag and folded it a special way.  Wahhhla!!!  I’m lovin’ the puzzle piece too.

 

I hope you enjoyed these highlights and they INSPIRE YOU to turn all those daunting things into something do-able things so you can share at Project Queen’s next link party.  Are you ready for Link Party #8????

Let’s roll!

  4. Great features. Thanks for hosting. Have a grand day! Toodels, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  5. Thanks so much for the feature & the great compliments-But I’ll be honest, I do use stencils to draw out some of my things (then I hand paint them in) I can draw just about anything, but a straight line! LOL! So, I actually do have a checkerboard stencil I use to lay out the checkerboard. Then to do the harlequins, I just turn the stencil on its side (the circles in the middle of the diamonds hide the fact that they don’t line up). I also use A LOT of tape when I make stripes on my pieces. Those are just some of my secrets, lol! I bet you could do it 😀 Thanks again, though for the feature I really appreciate the love! -M

  6. Thanks so much for the feature!! I had to get a new laptop and had to rebuild all my favorites so I’m just getting back to say thanks :-)!!
