Creative Ways Link Party #12 and Features

It's Wednesday again! Do you have your party hats on? I certainly do! I am ready to see what you've been up to all week. I absolutely love looking through all the links you bring to the Creative Ways Link Party. Thank you for sharing with us each week!
Before last week's party, I was listening to my daughter practice her lines and her solo for our church's Musicamp production of Dr. Newheart's Neck-up Check-up. She played Dr. Newheart, a pediatrician, and did a fabulous job. I am so proud of that girl! She auditioned for a part with less lines, but was asked to take the lead role. As nervous as she was, she mustered the courage, worked hard, prayed a lot, and performed her little heart out. 
At one point in the week, she broke down and didn't feel like she could do it. After some more praying and good night's sleep, she was right on track and never looked back. She's still experiencing a little sadness that it's all over. It will be fun to see what's next for her. Speaking of fun...want to see what caught my eye from last week's party? Here are the features:

Clockwise from Top Left
Cheeseburgers with Crunchy Onions and Horseradish Sauce by A Mind "Full" Mom
(I dreamt about these burgers last night...I love the addition of the horseradish sauce!)
Fire Pit Swing Set by Mother's Home
(If I had a lake house, or just a big backyard, I would totally do this!)
Cornbread with Whipped Maple Pecan Butter by Chocolate With Grace
(I love cornbread...I can only imagine this maple pecan butter would take it over the top. Yum!)
Lake House Boat Oar Address Sign by Refresh Living
(I wish I had an old shed to go to for treasures! What a clever way to direct people to your house!)
Banoffee Sandwich Cookies by Annie's Noms
(I have a special love relationship with Banoffee...Love how Annie's Noms made it portable.)
DIY Faux Coral Glass Candleholder by Purple Hues and Me
(What a great DIY project to add a little seaside whimsy to your decor!)

    1. Prayer really does work. :) So glad your daughter had a great week and did so well as the lead. What a sweet, special memory for her summer. Thanks Nici for the party. Best wishes for an extraordinary week!

    2. Thanks for hosting and featuring my cornbread with maple butter. I love seeing what everyone is up too!

    3. What a darling photo of your daughter. That's pretty great when you apply for a lesser role and get the lead.

      Thanks so much for hosting.

    4. Your daughter looks adorable playing her part! I am glad that it was a great experience and stretched her in ways that she didn't think she could do. It's a wonderful life lesson to learn that we are capable of more than we think or know & that God is faithful to lead us if we trust in Him! :o)
