Creative Ways Link Party #86 and Features

It's here! It's here! The week of Christmas is here! I'm beyond grateful that you are here too to celebrate the gift of creativity we've all been given. Welcome to the 86th Creative Ways Link Party! I hope you'll find some fun last-minute Christmas crafts, recipes and gifts to whip up, as well as great tips to get your new year off to a great start. Oh, and if I don't "see" you again before Christmas, I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating this holiday with those you hold most dear.

Before we see what you've been up to, let's check out some of my favorite posts from last week's party!

Still need to whip up some treats to take to holiday gatherings? These No Bake Nougat Bars by Simply Stacie look amazing!

I loved how Dining Delight put together this gorgeous Rustic Christmas Sideboard. Central to the decor is the beautiful Holy Bible and a cross... a reminder of the Reason for the season.

Sweet and Savory by Shinee brought this delicious Pesto Artichoke Dip to the party... I imagine you'd be the "hostess with the mostest" if you served some of this to your guests!

How adorable are these DIY Christmas Ornaments from A Blissful Nest? She has a sweet printable to go along with them if you wanted to give them to friends. I am sucker for those mini bottle brush trees!

Running Away? I'll Help You Pack shared these adorable Reindeer Cookies.... Can you spot what cookie cutter she used? So clever!

Because the heart and soul of Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus, I had to include this beautiful Christmas Nativity Collection by Home to Cottage. I love how she found a way to make Him the focus of her decorating on this antique cupboard.
