Creative Ways Link Party #115 and Features

Hello there! Happy Wednesday to you! Welcome to the 115th Creative Ways Link Party! Are you watching the days tick away on the calendar like I am? I can hardly believe we are over halfway through July! I feel like if I blink I may miss an entire month of my life! Anyway, I hope you are enjoying some lazy days of summer. Are you ready to see what your friends have been working on? I know we are ready to see what you've been doing lately.


But first, we have coffee... chocolate?... First we'll look at what tickled my fancy from last week's party ;-)


These DIY Gold Dipped Frames by White House Crafts really make a great statement! Love how that little "midas touch" made the artwork pop!


The Homespun Hydrangea shared these Simple and Delicious Zucchini Blossom Fritters in the sweetest way with her father-in-law as the star chef.


Noting Grace showed us how she Decorates With Glass and the special 25 cent find she brought home. Love her style and the fun accent pieces! 


This Grilled Fish with Asparagus Foil Packet by Julie's Lifestyle screams "fresh" to me! What a perfectly light and healthy summertime meal!


Kingsbury Brook Farm shared some wonderful insight into creating Farmhouse Style in simple, utilitarian ways. Loved this post!


I saved the No-Bake Twix Cookies for last so that I could linger over them a little longer. Truly drool-worthy post from Live Like You Are Rich! I cannot wait to make these!

    Creative Ways Link Party #114 and Features

    Hello again, friends! Happy to see you here at the 114th Creative Ways Link Party! If I'm honest, it's been a rough week for all of us. Trying to process and discuss the recent tragedies all over the country and closer to home in Dallas hurts my heart, and leaves me emotionally exhausted. I know I'm not alone. It almost seems petty to even have these parties. But then I am reminded how important it is see the beauty in life... to celebrate the gifts that God has given us and share that goodness with others. For that reason, I am excited to see what lovelies you'll share with us! I pray it will spur us on to love and good deeds!


    As usual, I like to show you some of my favorite links from the last party. Here they are:


    Let's start with this Easy Paper Plate Flamingo by How To This And That. What a fun craft for the kiddos to do this summer!


    Next up is this yummy Oven "Grilled" Romaine with Roasted Chicken Salad by Carrie Elle. This has my mouth watering!


    I'm loving the look of these Faux Metal Industrial Flower Pots by Love Create Celebrate. Such a great accent piece to make your plants pop!


    Sparkles In The Everyday shared this Best Homemade Guacamole with a Twist. I never thought of putting her secret ingredient into guacamole, but I'll for sure be trying it out!


    I really like this recycling project. We have loved starting plants from seeds in the past, but have never tried it this way. Ava's Alphabet shared a great tutorial with this post on how to Make Your Own Strawberry Box Greenhouse.


    And then there's dessert! My Sweet Mission always makes the most delicious desserts... these Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars are no exception!

      Creative Ways Link Party #113 and Features

      I'm baaaack! Are you ready for a party? I'm happy to be able to host this Creative Ways Link Party again after last week's water fiasco. The old laptop did not dry out properly... it's pretty much dead. Thankfully, hubby realized that it was time we replaced the old MacBook Pro. Ya know, since it was 8 years old, non-functioning and all. ;-) So, over the holiday weekend while everyone else was engaged in parades and barbecues, we made our way to the Apple Store. After much deliberation, we decided on the iMac... you lose the portability, but gain a whole lot more storage, processing speed, and other technical stuff. So far, I'm loving it! So, how was your July 4th holiday? I hope it was full of fun family and friend celebrations! Are you ready to show what you've been working on the last couple of weeks?


      I'm excited to see what you'll share at this party, but first would like to show you what posts piqued my interest from the last one:


      I Should Be Mopping The Floor shared this festive post on How to Build a Recycled Wood American Flag. I love the rustic touch on this classic Americana sign!


      I'm always looking for a refreshing twist on classic summertime beverages... this Southern Fruit Tea by The Country Chic Cottage looks like a keeper!


      This might seem like a diversion from some of the other features I generally pick, but I love the idea that Teach Mama had to do Summer booklists in her Best Books for Family Read-Alouds series. We just happened to have picked up her #5 book at the library before I even saw this post. I figured we could all use some good ideas to keep the kiddos reading books rather than screens over the Summer Break.


      I wish Lisa of Cooking with Curls was my personal chef. She brought another delicious recipe to the party... Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Bowls. Lots of flavor packed into that bowl!


      Seriously, how cute is this Shark Week Shirt by Dukes and Duchesses? What little boy wouldn't love to get his hands on this "jawsome" shirt? Love it!


      Last, but certainly not least, I had to feature this No Bake Samoa Cake by Don't Sweat The Recipe.  I love a delicious recipe in the Summer that doesn't require me turning on the oven.

        No Creative Ways Link Party this week.

        Hi Friends! I'm so sorry to tell you there won't be a party this week. We had a little mishap with the only functioning computer in the house. It seems that spilling water in the keyboard of a laptop is bad. 🤔 Who knew?
        Anyway, we've been longing for a new computer for quite a while. This might be the shove we needed to actually make it happen. Or, the old computer could dry out and we get a few more months out of it. We'll see what happens. In the meantime, I hope you all have a fabulous holiday weekend with family and friends as we celebrate our freedoms in the USA!

        Creative Ways Link Party #112

        Hi Friends! Happy to see you here at the Creative Ways Link Party! I've been spending the week volunteering at our church's VBS that is ministering to around 1500 kiddos, so I wasn't able to make it through last week's party to choose features. So sorry about that... I'll try to do double at next week's party. There's just not much energy left at the end of the day. I hope you're enjoying your summer. I look forward to seeing what you'll bring to the party!
