Hey, hey party people! It’s been another fantastic week in link party land here at Dream a Little Bigger. There were so many fantastic links that choosing favorites was darn near impossible. But we do what we must, I guess :)
Not a whole lot’s been going down around here… But lovely Doris sent me a picture on Facebook of her very FIRST beaded Kumihimo braid. How gorgeous is that? I love the colors I love the S closure… it’s all so perfect. An amazing job, Miss Doris.
And if you’re interested in trying your own hand at Kumihimo, first be warned it’s crazy addictive. Next head on over here for the basic 8 strand braid, over here to make a beaded basic 8 strand braid, and over here to add your end caps and findings!
And any time you want to share your DIYs with the readership here at DaLB send me your pic via email or on Facebook and we’ll get your creations in front of other creative eyes!
Also in news I decided to bring up roundups. Wahoo! They’re so much fun to research and put together that I’ve decided that it’s something I’m going to add to the weekly rosters. Hopefully you dig them coming back, too! If you have any ideas for themes, just give me a shout! Or check out the first in a long time, 12 Modern Valentine DIYs. Plus there’s another Valentine’s Day one coming up this afternoon. Woo!
Last of all there’s a guest post about guest posting over at Plucky’s Second Thought by yours truly! And there are tons of great posts by bloggers for bloggers because this is a fantastic series. Yep, it’s the Plucky’s Blogging Tips and Tricks series and there are a good 24 or bloggers participating so posts so get on over there!
Oh, but let’s check out this week’s co-host! Lovely Caroline from Stumbling Upon Happiness.
A year ago, my husband was offered a wonderful job opportunity in Geneva, Switzerland. We decided to take the offer and are now enjoying everything Switzerland and Europe have to offer! I started blogging to share our travel experiences and life with our friends and family back home. Now I blog not just about travel and life, but also food. I really enjoy sharing my passions for food, travel, and life with my readers and hope to share them with you too!
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!
Amy from Homey Oh My is picking up yet another feature here at Link It or Lump It! I love her simple style, and to be honest, I’m trying very hard to evolve my crafting style and it’s totally inspired by Amy! These simple homemade Valentine’s Day cards are just another amazing example of her totally perfect DIYS. Oh, and she’s nice. You totally cannot discount someone who is truly and sincerely nice!
Next up with have this adorably cute DIY felt robot bag from Lil’ Miss Tori. This is such a simple little project and with felt being so inexpensive, if you’ve got the time, you could whip up tons of these cuties for next to nothing! And if you don’t have a sewing machine, don’t be dissuaded… You can also hand stitch theses guys up with embroidery thread for an equally cute V-day bag!
I am so entirely jealous of the amazing photography from my bloggy buddy Alice over at Whisketeers. I mean, look at that photo. Gal knows how to snap! Plus she’s got the cutest kitties who have their own hashtags on instagram – #kimthecat #peggythecat! And since I love making homemade treats for my pets, I’m loving this chicken treat recipe that’s good for both cats or dogs. Head on over to Whisketeers to get an eyeful of gorgeous photography and the sweetest gal ever!
And last, but most definitely not least we have Charlie fro Pickled Okra and this feathery ball of fluff you see here. Now I didn’t really understand what was going on when I saw the little thumbnail in the party but I love all things fuzzy and had to click. And when I saw that this post was a DIY for making a CHICKEN SWEATER as in a sweater for CHICKEN to wear, I decided that Charlie was awesome and that I automatically adore her. Because of the recent cold weather, she made her chickens sweaters to keep them warm in their coop. Head on over to see how to make sweaters for your own chickens!
And last, but not least thanks so much to last week’s co-host Sonnet from Soho Sonnet.
And don’t forget… you have THREE TIMES the potential for comment love, social shares and featured favorites this coming Sunday, so link up!!! And be sure to share the love with your friends! Grab the buttons below to show you’ve been featured or that you proudly link up!
Share the love, grab a button!
The RULES – because I took the time to write ’em up:
- Link anything you made yourself but nothing that is available for sale. (you don’t have to have a blog or site just leave that bit empty or link up your Facebook profile, etc.)
- Link back to Dream a Little Bigger to be considered for next week’s feature roundup! (you can grab that awesome button up there – hubba hubba!)
- Click through one or two of your favorite links and leave some comment love!
- Entries are randomly placed so that everyone gets top billing. I HATE when I get to a party late and my links get stuck somewhere in the middle! Well, that’s not gonna happen here, folks!
