Creative Ways Link Party #104 and Features

Happy Wednesday to you! Welcome to the 104th Creative Ways Link Party! I'm so glad you've stopped by for a dose of inspiration! Whether you're here to share or to just to see what your favorite bloggers have been up to, we are thrilled to see you!


Today's features have a bit of a Mother's Day theme to them... as in they are all items you could make for gifts or even share with your loved ones as a hint ;-) Enjoy!


Five Marigolds showed us how to make this adorable Reversible Upcycled Kitchen Sign. What a perfectly whimsical accent for the most used room in our home!


This functional and sweet Fabric Drawstring Basket by Gluesticks would make a wonderful gift for new moms... or old moms... I'd love to have one myself! That fabric is too cute!


Here's a great up-cycle project to make for Mom... DIY Bird Feeders... Heart Handmade UK shared several different ones in her post. Lots to choose from!


Sadie Seasongoods brought this beautiful Quilt in a Window to the party. What a fabulous way to recycle those old windows and tattered quilts! I love this so much!


The Homespun Hydrangea showed us how to make this beautiful DIY Vertical Succulent Garden Wall Hanging. How fun is that?!?!


In case you needed a little inspiration to set a table for Mother's Day, Dining Delight shared this tutorial for How to Set a Pretty Spring Tablescape. She is a wealth of inspiration!

Okay, you should be ready to bless the socks off of the mothers in your life! Thanks to everyone who contributed to the party!

    Creative Ways Link Party #103 and Features

    Well, hello there! I'm so happy to see you here at the 103rd Creative Ways Link Party! I am back in town from hanging out with my parents while my dad had his neck surgery and started the recovery process. I'm so very thankful that the surgery went well and that it seems to have been successful in eliminating a lot of his nerve pain. As much as I love spending time with them (and I really do), it is always good to get home and back into the swing of things.


    Speaking of getting back into the swing of things, I was finally able to spend time going through 
    your posts to pick out features from last week's party. Yay! I loved seeing familiar bloggers sharing and some new faces too! Here were the links that caught my eye...


    Simple Decorating Tips shared lots of Creative Planter Ideas. These would be fun Mother's Day gifts!


    Be still my heart! This Banoffee Ice Cream Tart by Mia Bella Passions looks amazing! I love all the flavors going on with this... I'm imagining myself having a slice of it with a cup of coffee... Won't you join me? 


    She Holds Dearly showed us How to Slipcover a Recliner. I love how she transformed her hand-me-down chairs into these beauties!


    I am a sucker for fresh baked English muffins slathered with butter... I can only imagine this English Muffin Bread by Little House Living is divine.


    I drool over just about everything that Cooking on the Front Burners brings to the parties. This Mexican Quinoa Skillet Dinner looks easy and delicious... not to mention healthy!


    Finally, Happier Than a Pig in Mud shared this adorable recycling craft... Recycled K-Cup and Popsicle Stick Bird Feeder. It kills me to throw all those used K-Cups away! This would be a wonderful rainy day or Earth Day activity to do with the kiddos.

      Creative Ways Link Party #102

      Hi Friends! It's time for another Creative Ways Link Party! Sorry, but there are no features again this week... I'm in Lubbock with my parents and had a weekend full of soccer and baseball games in addition to our usual Sunday church commitments.  My dad had neck surgery this week, so I went out to Lubbock to be moral support for both him and my mom. I'm still hanging out with them, but I'm looking forward to checking out what you bring to the party! Keep the inspiration coming!

          Food for the Soul ~ Psalm 1:1-2

          Hi Friends. I'm not sure if you noticed, but I pretty much took off all of March with blogging. Oh, I was able to continue to do the weekly Creative Ways Link Parties, because you all do most of the work on those. ;-)  Of all the posts I missed doing... recipes, crafts, tips... my Sunday Food for the Soul posts were the ones I most hated to let slip. Unfortunately, with illness, company at my house, a trip to Arizona, and a trip to Round Top, I was just not able to put any time towards Posed Perfection or the posts. But, I am happy to be back here with you today, sharing a precious gem from the Bible, Psalm 1:1-2.


          The kids and I memorized the first several verses of Psalm 1 back in January. These particular verses point to the progression of sin in our lives from nonchalantly walking with sinners, to standing with them and their causes, to finally sitting in their places... nice and comfy. It's an ugly thing to witness, let alone experience it ourselves. I love that the antidote and even the preventative to this is spending time in God's Word, meditating on it. May your heart be encouraged this week by the reading of His Word, and the joy that comes from knowing Jesus!
