Lessons Learned: My Favorite Projects {March 23rd}

We had some unbelievable linkups this past week and I’m so excited to share my favorites! It was so hard to narrow it down to just a few to feature, but these peeps have totally inspired me and make me want to get out my paint brush (or sewing machine, oven mitt, and anything else crafty)!

My girl Taryn over at Design, Dining + Diapers created this adorable Tea Stained Coffee Filter Wreath {and made it to Round 4 over at Today’s Creative Endeavor with this fabulous project!}. Love the vintage feel of this, don’t you?

LOVE this China Cabinet Makeover from Days of Chalk and Chocolate! Jenny said the project isn’t quite complete, but I love it already! You must click over to see the before and after. Just stunning!

I found My Sister’s Suitcase during last week’s Blog Hop and completely fell in love with Nat & Holly. So what sweet project did they link up this week? A changing table that they turned into an Ice Cream Parlor. I WAS STUNNED! This is simply creative and inventive. Definitely visit their site to check out all of the cool little details that went into this project!

Need a new dinner idea for the family? Your Homebased Mom shares a recipe for Asian Chicken Wraps (and trust me, they’re even kid friendly!). Leigh Ann even gives the recipe for her special sauce. DELICIOUS!

How about another amazing wreath that gets you in the mood for Spring? This Blue Robin’s Egg Wreath is from Uncommon is simply fantastic! Isn’t it amazing what a little spray paint can do?

And finally I had to feature this incredible handmade purse from Pixie Patterns and Sews. I can’t believe people can actually make things like this with a sewing machine!! Some people just have such talent (and patience)! Make sure you check out the complete purse details, including the fabulous lining!

Whelp, that’s it for this week. My daughter has her first ever soccer game this weekend! I’ll post some pics next week of my little soccer stud :)

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Lessons Learned: My Favorite Projects {March 16th}

WOW, it was the biggest Party with My Peeps linky party ever with 146 projects! It was so hard to narrow it down to just a few to feature, but these peeps have totally inspired me and make me want to get out my paint brush (or sewing machine, oven mitt, and anything else crafty)!

How about this FABULOUS dresser makeover from The Fabuless Life! This project stopped me dead in my tracks. You must click over to see the complete transformation and hear the disappointing story about this project. Send Jenn some major LOVE for this masterpiece!

Next up are some adorable kite and plane cookies from Lizy Bakes. These are just too cute for words. And I’m stunned by the artistic ability Lizy brings to her baking. Check out her entire site… you’ll be there for hours!

While we’re on the subject of unbelievable eats, check out these Chocolate Oreo Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes… yep, you heard that right! Tracy from Scribble Smudge shares the full recipe on her site and I seriously can’t get over how devilishly good these look! And it combines two of my very favorite things: peanut butter cups and Oreos. Definitely going to make these!

Check out these adorable Scrabble Bags from Destination:Craft. Kathryn shows you step-by-step instructions on how to create these clever bags. And I just LOVE the interior fabric choice. SUPER FABULOUS!

LOVE these Princess Peg Dolls from Artsy Fartsy Mama! Lindsey always has the best crafts and original ideas. Aren’t these just the cutest for your little lady?! Visit her site and check out the other Princesses. So stinkin’ cute!!

Whelp, that’s it for this week. I featured some others on Facebook and Twitter, plus pinned some of my favorites to Pinterest. Go check them out and spread some love!!

As for me, I’m taking today off work to enjoy some one-on-one time with my little ladybug! Hope y’all have a fabulous St. Patty’s Day and BE SAFE!
