Creative Ways Link Party # 35 and Features

Welcome to the first Creative Ways Link Party of 2015! I'm so happy to see you here! Did you have a nice holiday? We enjoyed some sweet family time, baking cookies, working puzzles and visiting with my parents for a few days. Now, I am in New Year's resolutions mode... working hard to keep the house picked up and on top of the chores that need to be done, fitting in some exercise, and planning out a future for this little ol' blog. Fun stuff! I'm sure you've been busy as can be also. I can hardly wait to see what you've been working on.


Before we dive into the features from the last party (which was 2 weeks ago), I just thought I'd share a few posts that I put together over the break:


All right, enough about what I've been doing... let's see which of your posts stood out from the last party!

This Be Merry Outdoor Sign by One Mile Home Style has big impact for a small price tag and effort.   What a fabulous way to greet your winter visitors... or a good reminder as you cross the threshold of your own home! 

Raspberry Pecan Pinwheel Cookies by Luv a Bargain had my mouth watering. They look like they would just melt in your mouth!

You simply need to go over and see the Crochet Gifts 2014 by Over the Apple Tree. From hats and scarves to adorable critters like this one, Laura is a master with a crochet hook!

I was just introduced to this flavor combination this year. I'm pretty sure I'll be making up lots of batches of this Peppermint Pretzel Bark by Clover House for next year's Christmas treats.

This Christmas Clearance Placemat Pillow by My Thrift Store Addiction is so pretty. What a fabulous way to use up those treasures you find at the after-Christmas sales!

Oh, yes. I will be making some of these Andes Mint Cookies by Upstate Ramblings very soon. Such a classic flavor combination that can't be beat!

If you missed these wonderful posts, be sure to click through their links to check them out! What have you been working on this week? I can't wait to see!

I've started adding the features to my Creative Ways Link Party Features Board on Pinterest. Hoping that will bring your posts even more exposure! I hope you'll follow along! (The features from the last few parties are on there as well!)
