Patricia @ IN THE MOM ZONE made some yummy coconut banana bread, it sounds so good, and she gave a wonderful tip on toasting coconut.

Sandy @ ORGANIZING WITH SANDY Showed us how to make a really cool weekly calendar. I love the idea for this, and it just might work for us too.

Magda @ MAGDA MAGDA showed us the tutorial on how she made this fantastic EXUBERANCE necklace, scarf. I love the little bells on the ends, how fun!

Erin @ MAKING MEMORIES WITH YOUR KIDS made some really cute, adorable garden carrot patches, completely edible of course, he he.

Tara @ FABULOUSLY CRAFTY Made some really adorable burlap pillows, and embellished them with some pretty fabric ruffles. They look stunning on her front porch bench.

Tiffany @ IT'S A COWGIRL THING gave me such inspiration with her post on her warrior dash. Running about 5k, and going through 12 obstacle courses, one of which included playing in a ton of mud. She said when she started training she could barely run 1/2 mile, and now can run 4 1/2, WOW, I LOVE HER. So happy she shared this with us!!!

Dacia @ A CREATIVE MAMA made a totally cute, very practical, and perfect teacher appreciation gift. One that I could use too, it's so cute.

Paula @ WELCOMING SPIRIT had a FABULOUS idea. She worked AROUND her ugly thermostat, and created an amazing faux bulletin board. It is so brilliant, I can't believe I never thought of it.

Meridith @ WELCOME TO HEARDMONT showed us how her and her talented hubby Stephen transformed their bathroom, from the ground up, on a VERY small budget, with a complete tutorial every step of the way. I LOVE this bathroom, it's just beautiful.

Aimee @ JUST KIDDING AROUND ATLANTA showed us how to make a really cute, and totally awesome sunflower fort, hut, play tent for the kiddos. I love this idea so much, but wonder if I'm too late to get started???

Stacy @ EMBRACING CHANGE revealed her beautiful antique dresser. It truly looks incredible, she did a FANTASTIC job on it.

Christina @ IT'S A KEEPER showed us a really yummy looking chicken casserole. King Ranch to be exact, hmm, if it's fit for a king, I guess we should love it too.

Shelley @ ARMY WIFE QUILTER made her precious daughter a skirt from some of her daddies ACU uniform. How cute is this? Shelley has made several cool pieces from this ACU material, make sure to go check our her other creations.

Lisa @ THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS is a regular here at my party, always sharing some totally yummy, usually healthy (ER) type of delicious food. This spinach and artichoke pasta is no exception. It looks so good!

Kassi @ TRULY LOVELY is one creative gal. While looking at a HUGE pile of old ropes from her cowboy fiance, she saw all kinds of inspiration for craftiness. For this project she created a beautiful rope vase, and I don't think it could have turned out any LOVELIER, don't you agree?

Michelle @ DREAM HOME DIY told her hubby she wanted new paint in this room, he said OK, and look what they created. I mean seriously, I adore this archway, and check out those lovely stripes. It's so awesome, and I'd love to have such an awesome arch in my home... sigh.

Lauren @ WEST FURNITURE REVIVAL has literally been running out of places to put new pieces. Does this stop the super talented diy chick. Heck no, my gal gets an ugly wall clock, and turns it into another incredible creation. I especially LOVE that I could actually see myself doing this, because it's on a smaller scale than redoing a whole dresser. PLEASE do more of this girl, me likey!

Chameleon girls @ THE CHAMELEON GIRLS made a very cool lamp using a stack of old books. How fabulous is this idea. I love it. I also love that mom and daughter work together creating crafts on this newly discovered blog, how fun!!

Steph @ JUST THOUGHT I'D SHARE made a little $5.00 valance for her kitchen. The best part, done in less than 20 minutes, and it's NO SEW, how awesome is that? Oh wait, I think she did have to sew the top part, but oh well, go see the tutorial to see how she did the rest with no sewing, he he.

Pretty girl @ LIFE WITH THE ELLWOODS made an AWESOME, totally AWESOME mason jar chandelier. I am in love with this, not because I've never seen mason jars as lights, but this just looks so darn cool to me. I love it, love everything about it, and love the heck out of this cute adorable couple, who share their diy projects on their blog. Make sure to stop by and say HI, tell them Bella sent you, :)

My photo
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
