Creative Ways Link Party #33 and Features

Oh, my word! Can you believe Christmas is just a week away? It floors me how fast 2014 has come and gone. Well, I know you are all busy finishing up the preparations for the big day, so I'll keep this intro to the Creative Ways Link Party short and sweet. By the way, let's start the party a day early next week, shall we? Next week's party will start on Tuesday at 8pm central. 

As usual, there were a ton of great linkups from the last party. From beautiful to delicious, whimsical to rustic, here were some of the ones that put a little holly in my heart ;-) ( In no particular order... they are all awesome!)

Isn't this 2014 Christmas Mantel by Our Home Away From Home just gorgeous? I love all the sparkly green touches!

Love Bakes Good Cakes brought this gorgeous Raspberry Fool to the party. What a deliciously light and flavorful Christmas dessert!

BrePurposed rose to the challenge with this gorgeous, festive Christmas Marquee Sign! You have to see how she made this showpiece! 

I need to try some of this Skinnier {Eggless} Eggnog by The Kitchen Is My Playground. I've always been a little apprehensive about the raw eggs in real eggnog too. This sounds like a delicious alternative!

So Much to Make whipped up these festive Glittered Origami Christmas Trees. This might be a fun craft for my tweens to work on!

The Crafting Foodie brought this decadent spin on an old-fashioned favorite! This Oatmeal Cookie Layer Cake with Cinnamon Frosting and Dark Chocolate Ganache almost brings tears to my eyes it sounds so amazing!

This Reindeer Parking Sign by the DIY Dreamer is a charming outdoor decoration that sounds pretty simple to make too!

These adorable Dipped Oreo Reindeer Cookies by The Mandatory Mooch made me smile! So clever and yummy!

Are those awesome or what? Thanks so much to everyone who participated!
