Mop It Up Mondays Party #2


Y'all, last week was a BUH-LAST! Thanks to everyone who linked up and visited... y'all made my first party super fun! I was overwhelmed (in a great way)! I thought I'd get a jump start on things this week since I pulled my back yesterday (working on a pallet project, no less). Instead of getting everything prepped for game time...and by prepped, I mean throwing these bad boys into the oven, we've had to pull a plan B and let me sit on a heating pad all day while the hubs throws frozen pizza in the oven (niiiiice).

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.

Sarah, over at Dwell on Joy whipped up these AdOrAbLe Everyday Napkins. This was her first sewing project...ever!! This gives non-sewers like me some serious hope. I'm wildly intimidated by bobbins, needles and fat quarters...but she taught herself to use the sewing machine in one day! The fabric colors are just beautiful, too!

Anita over at Aunt Nubby's Kitchen created these delicious High Tea Lemon Cookies. Can't wait to try these, y'all. The sweet lady who hosted my wedding shower years ago (after we eloped...lol) made a very similar cookie for that special event. And I adore all things lemon!

This giant pencil just makes me smile! One of my college roomies used to have one in her classroom when she taught math. And you won't believe how simple it looks to make. Michell over at Girl In Air gives a fabulous tutorial on how to make your own.

Brittney from Third Time's A Charm showed us her first quilt: The Juice Box Quilt. I love the fabrics and colors she used in this. It's so sweet!!

Sherilyn over at Falling Down House shared a wonderful recipe for a Butterscotch Breakfast Bundt Cake. You'll have to check out the finished product on her site in all of its ooey-gooey goodness.

I am constantly amazed at what can be done with an old t-shirt. Jennifer at Delightfully Noted created these sweet flowers and attached them to pillows for a lovely Valentine's touch. 

Jennifer at Jennifer Cooks had me at Zuppa...I'm such an Olive Garden fan. She duplicated this unbelievably delicious recipe for Zuppa Toscana. I have to say, the name of her site does not lie. Jennifer can cook, indeed. They used to live closer to us and we attended church together (and were even in the same Life Group for a while). Anything to come out of this girl's kitchen is life-changing. I was always giddy to go over to Jennifer & Quentin's house because the eating (and company) couldn't be beat. You'll have to check out her site because she is one amazing lady (and not just because she's a fantastic chef).

Suz from Suz Mae: Thriving in the Desert created these adorable felt baking hearts. These are just precious. Although my boys are probably out of this phase of play, I wouldn't mind stacking these up on a glass cake plate for a lovely centerpiece or decoration. 

Can you believe this adorable charm was made from a fuse box? Kim from Martha on a Budget designed this with a fun accordion pull-out full of photos. Very cool! Check out the tutorial here.

Jen from At Home in the Northwest not only linked a fabulous post on how she totally revamped her pantry (it's awesome, y'all), she also gave us a step-by-step tutorial on how to create the beautiful labels she used.

Sooo...let's get this party started! Right?

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!
