Mop It Up Mondays #4

It's that time again, friends! Set down your Swiffer duster. Turn off the vacuum. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the party at our fourth Mop It Up Monday! . . .a party worth neglecting your chores for!
Thank you to everyone who linked up last week. I am constantly in awe of the creativity this community has...what an amazing group you are!
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.

Things making my to do list a bit longer:

Jamie, from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom, created this adorable magnetic board with the sweet rosette magnets. She's super thoughtful and includes a tutorial for the board and a link to her tutorial for the rosettes.

Nothing says lovin' like Red Velvet...and in a Whoopie Pie, no less! The Farm Girl shares her wonderful recipe that sandwiches red velvet around a cream cheese filling. How can you go wrong with that?

Lisa, from The Pursuit of Happiness, shared a very awesome tutorial on adding grommets to curtains. Her DIY Grommet Man Cave curtains turned out fabulous!

Mari, from Inspired by Family Mag, shares some great tips on throwing a birthday party on a budget. Her party is so cute...hard to believe it was so budget friendly. So happy to have her secrets!

Analisa over at Ruth's Farm & Furniture shared a great storage solution. Love the numbered canvas panels and pretty ribbons!

Mmmm... Panko-coated ravioli fried to perfection! Trish from Mom on Timeout shares a fabulous recipe for these!

Heather over at DIY Kinda Girl created this one -of-a-kind wedding gift monogram. Isn't it sweet? You should see the amazing detail she put into this. So thoughtful.

Sara from Cook with Sara created these beautiful thumb-print cookies with jelly. The drizzle glaze just takes them to that next level. YUM.

Natalie from the Detail-Oriented Diva shares her adorable retro nursery. She also gives some great pointers for using birthday party decorations into the room decor. So smart!

Is there anything better than a sweet soul bringing you a meal after surgery or a new baby? Stephanie from Two-Daloo shows a great meal she put together for a friend. It includes a lot more than the actual food...she's so thoughtful! She has great tips for helping out a friend in need.

Kandi from Woven Home debuts her beautiful new playroom. You've GOT to see the before/after on this one. She has so many great tips & tricks on how she pulled off a fabulous room. This photo is only a sampling of the fabulousness going on over there!

So it's time to get this week's links up and at 'em! 

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!

While you're here for the party, be sure to check out other's links and become a follower of ishouldbemoppingthefloor, if you like.

The only rule is to please link back...either grab a button or link in your own style.
