Creative Ways Link Party #19 and Features

Hi Friends! Did you have a good week? We made it through our first week of school and are plowing through this full week's schedule too. I'm still trying to get a handle on balancing homeschooling, keeping up the house, and sharing any of my creative endeavors with you. It's a juggling act for sure! Thanks for inspiring me each week at this Creative Ways Link Party!

Are you ready to see this week's features? But where is that cool jigsaw collage you normally do with all the features, Nici? I'm glad you asked. Well, even if you didn't ask, I'm going to tell you ;-)

I really had a hard time choosing features this usual. But this week was especially difficult. I just couldn't seem to narrow it down to 6 features like I normally do. So, today, you'll be getting the bigger pictures of all 10 features! Let me know how you like this format. I know it will make the party post longer, but maybe you like seeing the bigger pictures? Would you like the features broken out into a separate post? Let me know, I'm all ears! Anyway, without further ado, I bring you this week's Creative Ways Features...starting with the DIY projects and ending with the food...just to get you hungry ;-)

This one truly amazes me! It makes me want to cover up my real fireplace with a wall of birch rings. 

Oh Deer! String Art by Curly Crafty Mom
This was the last one to the party, but certainly made an impact on me. I love the "oh deer" caption!

DIY Burlap Purple Cone Flowers by Purple Hues and Me
When I first clicked on this link, I thought they were real! Love the bright color of these!

Such a great way to use up what you have! She made this adorable piece with items she had on hand!

I love a good repurpose, and this project is one that any of us could do. She makes it look so effortless, yet the result is cottage-industrial-chic!

Rustic Rag Banner by Home Made Interest
Is this not the sweetest thing? She made it for a rustic wedding's decor, but I could see it hung up in any room of my house!

Corn Chowder by Three Kids and a Fish
This chowder has me yearning for the cooler weather...just so I can eat soup again. 

Bacon Ranch Potato Salad by Love Bakes Good Cakes
This ain't your momma's potato salad! Love how this version is kicked up a notch with Ranch and bacon!

I could go for some of this cake for breakfast! Beautiful presentation and looks delicious too!

Caramel Apple Layer Cake by Say It With Cake
Last, but not least, this cake ushers us into the fall season, bringing to mind harvest festivals and cozy evenings with friends. 

Can you see why I had such a hard time narrowing down to just 6 features? I've said it before and I'll say it again. I am truly honored that you all spend part of your week linking up here at the Creative Ways Link Party. Your creativity in the kitchen and around the home inspires me! Thank you for making this party such a fun place each week!
