Mop It Up Mondays #5 {with a GIVE AWAY!}

To celebrate a whole month of partying, I thought a give-away would be super fun! For every link up, you are entered for a chance to win (link up as many times as you like, just no repeats from previous parties, please). For every follow, you'll get another entry (let me know you follow in the comments, please). I'll do the drawings after links close on Friday and announce the winner at next week's party!

I'm giving away three sets of SIXTY Lunch Box Love Notes from my Printable Panache Line. They come in a slider box for simple storage. They make it easier to tuck a little LOVE into your little (or big) one's lunch bag. They include the following fifteen designs (you'll receive four of each design):

Hard to believe we've been partying for FIVE weeks now! This is so much fun to see what everyone links up each week. Below are some highlights from last week's party.

Things making my to do list a bit longer:

My sweet blog friend, Lisa, over at The Sweet Talk Shop, shows you how to make a gorgeous monogrammed cutting board. Kind of swooning over that copper tin backsplash, too. Have you met Lisa? Her site is fabulous and she is so kind & sweet. 

I love a good Chai Latte. Vanessa over at Nifty Thrifty Things shares a wonderful recipe for Homemade Chai Concentrate. It looks so yummy...I can practically smell it through my laptop. YUM.

A Tiffany Blue dresser with an iridescent sheen to it? I'll take two, please. Monica and Elaine over at Decorating Insanity painted this beauty. It seems like everything they paint turns out swoon-worthy. Just gorgeous.

I'm loving this challenge that Rebekah over at Potholes & Pantyhose has been doing. She's on a quest to slowly rid their house of anything with nasty chemicals and large price tags. Love her train of thought. Last week, she shared her facial moisturizer, this week she has a great recipe for Organic Dishwasher Detergent. Can't wait to try it out.

These awesome magnetic chore charts and routines are something I definitely need to wrap my brain around. April over at Wolfelicious shares a wonderfully detailed tutorial on how to create your own. 

Lyuba over at Will Cook For Smiles shared a recipe for Chocolate Waffles. If chocolate can't motivate me to get out of bed in the morning, I don't know what can.

 This sweet little Toddler T-Shirt Dress was created by Kim at Little Rays of Sunshine
It's precious and so is her little model. 

A cupcake on a cupcake. There's so much adorableness I can hardly stand it. Dorothy over at Crazy for Crust gives a detailed recipe/tutorial on creating these Cupcake Topped Rainbow Cupcakes. The post is so colorful...check it out!

. . . . . . .

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)! The more the merrier: link up as many posts as you like (remember that you get an automatic entry for the give away for every link). 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.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
