AMAZING FEATURES week #43 & #44

Amaze me August

We have a lot of features this week, since I didn't do any features last week, again, sorry about that. So take a few moments to see my TOP 10 for the past two weeks. As usual I love seeing new people join the party, you know who you are :) Thank you so much, and I also want to thank everyone who is kind enough to add my button, or link back to my blog. Almost every single blog I visited, did this, so I just want you to know I APPRECIATE it so much. 

P.S. Sorry about the photobucket notices all over my blog today, first thing this morning I noticed it and immediately payed my dues, BUT it seems they still are updating, erghh. I wish they cold send an email or something before just cutting you off, that sucks!!

Thanks again to everyone who helps make this party awesome. Don't forget about my new party. Even if you link up here, you can always go there to link up as well. Especially if it's party related, I actually PREFER you join the party there first. I need all your help in spreading the word about this party, and soon I just know it will be an awesome resource for us all. 

Now check out these amazing features!!

Connie @ SALVAGE SAVVY created a really awesome organizational center. She made a bulletin board and chalkboard, all custom, and so pretty!

Marissa @ RAE GUN RAMBLINGS made me so happy with her pillows, they are just fantastic. I love the fabric, the colors, the simplicity and of course her wonderful tutorial. So awesome!!

Michelle @ DREAM HOME DIY turned a ugly brass lamp, into a hot pink beauty, and then did a switcheroo and repainted it navy, so now even the hubs is happy, he he. What a difference either way, way better than before.

Pattie @ ON HOLLYHOCK FARM made me drool like crazy over her mini moss garden. It is so adorable, and so pretty. If you have a little princess, how magical it would be to make this a fairy garden, oh my so sweet!!

Ami @ ALILILLY created another awesome paint chip banner. I mean seriously this is so awesome, and oh my gosh, how awesome that it's FREE, can't beat that!!

Erin @ HECK FRIDAYS made an awesome bird feeder, using up recycled items from her home. I LOVE this, so easy, so practical, and so GREEN!

Coley @ COLEYS CORNER redid her regular flip flops, to something really awesome, and as if adding a pretty ribbon and flower wasn't enough, she made everything interchangeable. How brilliant is that, so now she can switch the style everyday!!

Jaclyn @ J DESIGNS made her brother the most AWESOME cake ever, a Michael Jackson cake, oh my gosh, I love Michael, LOVE HIM, and this cake just made me super happy!!

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 :)
