So I don’t know what things are like in your neck of the woods, but in mine I am freaking snowed in and it’s driving me nuts! Hopefully in just a little bit I’ll be able to brave the icy streets and head to Walmart without pulling over and crying. I HATE driving in bad weather and I’d very much prefer to stay at home with a mug of hot chocolate very near, but I’ve been using the unisex deodorant from my Holiday Rescue Kit and, as it turns out, it isn’t my first choice. TMI? Sorry.
Along with the amazing snow has been AMAZING light for taking pictures for tutorials. So being stuck indoors hasn’t been totally in vain and I’ve got some pretty nifty stuff to share with you this week.
I’ve also hopped onto a few big group blog giveaways. Since I can’t just give away $750 on my own, I’ve teamed up with some other bloggers because there is most definitely power in numbers! At any rate, let me know what you think, will you? Do you dig the group giveaways and think I should continue with them or do you say lump the whole thing?
But let’s move on to this awesome link party! Remember… If you want to pin these lovely projects or tweet them out to your followers, click through and share them from the original site. Give some love to those who worked hard on their amazing projects!
Can you believe that this is a DIY Christmas tree? And when I say DIY, I don’t mean just handmade ornaments. No-sir-ree-bob, this is a tree made using a dowel, paint and garland. Are you impressed now because you totally should be! Head on over to Cynthia Banessa to see how to make your own Christmas tree from scratch and save big, big bucks. Seriously, $10 versus $50 – that’s amazing!
This may be technically cheating, but I actually begged Aurelia from Eglantine Stitchery to enter this in Link It or Lump It so that I could feature it. This is chicken scratch on aida and it is gorgeous and there just happens to be a free PDF pattern so that you can do the same. Isn’t the texture and just overall look amazing? If you’re a stitcher be sure to head on over to see more images of this chicken scratch sampler on aida!
Oh, goodness. Is it too early for dessert? I sure hope not! These amazing popcorn recipe from That’s My Home is, well, amazing! It has lots of chocolate, lots of popcorn and lots of marshmallows, plus a fun Christmas themed kick! Get the full recipe and prepare to make the recipe twice. Once for you to scarf down by yourself immediately and another that the family can have some of. Chocolate Marshmallow Popcorn.
This DIY mint duo from Alyssa and Carla looks so amazingly wonderful and much, much cheaper than store-bought alternatives. You get not only a fantastic looking mint lip balm recipe, but also a fantastic looking mint lip scrub recipe. As someone with a very serious addiction to both balms and scrubs, I can say that these are a must try! Get the fresh recipe… DIY Mint Lip Duo.
