Creative Ways Link Party #94 and Features

Well, hello there! Hope your week is off to a great start! I feel like I'm behind, since we took off school on Monday for President's Day. The kids and I drove across the Metroplex to see one of my oldest friends and her kiddos. With busy schedules and the distance, we only get to see each other a few times a year. This visit was especially fun since I got to see her parents also. (They were my 2nd parents during the teen years). They popped over for a few minutes, so we were able to catch up and give out some long overdue hugs. It was such a sweet reunion. Anyway, that's been the highlight of my week so far... besides this party, of course ;-) Speaking of parties, are you ready to share what you've been working on here at the Creative Ways Link Party? I'm sure ready to see what you have been up to!

Here were some of my favorite posts from the last party:

First of all, some of you may not know this, but arranging flowers is not in my skill set. I struggle with it every time I get fresh flowers. I did not receive this gene from my mother, who is a beautiful novice florist. However, Boxwood Avenue shared some great tips on How to Turn Grocery Store Flowers into Beautiful Arrangements. I think I will buy myself some flowers this week to try these pointers!

These Grilled Blackened Chicken Tacos from All She Cooks look like a delicious weeknight dinner, especially when you are rushed for time. 

Simply Beautiful by Angela shared this Dark Hallway Makeover on a Budget. It really is a beautiful transformation! I can't wait to see how she did the board and batten.

These Chipotle Jicama Fries by Morsels of Life are making my mouth water! I need to try these, for sure!

I adore this French Knot Wreath Pillow that Home to Cottage shared in her tutorial. I've never mastered the French Knot, but I intend to try it again!

The Country Chic Cottage delighted us with this Applesauce Banana Cake Recipe. Looks like the perfect snack, dessert, or breakfast ;-)

I need some of these DIY Farmhouse Tea Towels by Making It In The Mountains in my life. They are so pretty... and functional!
