Mop It Up Mondays #3

Hey, hey, hey! It's time to mop up the creativity at another Mop It Up Mondays! I was blown away with over 200 entries last week...WOWZERS. Thank you all for joining me in blissfully ignoring all of our chores for crafty fun instead!

Here's a few things that caught my eye last week...so hard to just pick a few features. If you were featured, feel free to grab a button for your site.

It was so hard to just pick a few features. Everything linking up was awesome. But, below are a few of my favorites. If you were featured, feel free to grab a button for your site.

Beth, over at Hungry Happenings, created these adorable Valentine sweethearts that are actually little CHEESECAKES! She used the Wilton mini-heart molds and gives a wonderfully detailed tutorial on how to create these beauties. I just think they're so much fun!

Kristi (gotta love her name) over at KrisKraft originally bought this bed (in not nearly this great of condition) at a yardsale for $20 (I'm in awe of that, y'all). She transformed it into the beauty you see here. She even shared some of her tips for having to recreate some detail that was missing from some of the legs. This is such a beautiful keepsake for her daughter now! See the complete tutorial here.

Amee over at Amee's Savory Dish created these cute clown cupcakes for her daughter's school spelling carnival. Her kids even joined the fun and helped paint the icing on the hats. 

These beautiful Jonathan Adler inspired vases were handmade by Rita from Design Megillah. She used clay on some and puff paint on others before she sprayed them white. I think they are so pretty!

Meaningful Mama Jodi has come up with a divine concoction of S'More Bars with ROLOS!! As if S'Mores weren't yummy enough. This dish looks like it will be going with me to the next potluck. 

Have you guys seen these DIY Yarn Chandeliers that Megan Brooke from Megan Brooke Handmade created? They look so pretty and judging from the supply list, they probably won't bust the party budget. Super FUN!

Not only do I love a good chicken noodle soup, but look at these carrots!! Crystal over at Mrs. Happy Homemaker shared the recipe for her homemade Chicken Noodle soup with the adorable carrot-hearts...which she includes a complete tutorial for! Since my husband's away for Valentine's, this will be perfect for me & the kiddos!

The sisters over at Natural Nesters created their own Homemade Glitter. It's perfect for the kiddos to make as well. This looks so much fun and is going onto my to-do list before littlest man starts kindergarten in the fall (sniff, sniff). 

This photo is only a sampling of what gorgeousness this post has. Seriously...it's chocked-full of amazing photos of a B-E-A-Utiful home. Melody of Chatty Chics takes us on a tour of Diane's lovely home. The rooms will amaze you...check out the harlequin kitchen floor...one of my favorites!

These have to be the most doggone cutest things ever. Jill from Kitchen Fun with My 3 Sons put together these precious Puppy Love Pot Pies. These scream Bento Box-perfection to me!! Can't wait to try them out! ;)

Would love for you to link up your favorite project, recipe, tip or whatever (it's an anything goes linky party)! It's all about sharing ideas. And, the more the merrier: link up as many posts as you like. Let's MOP UP SOME FUN!
