Mop It Up Mondays #9

It's a beautiful spring day in central Texas! We took our obligatory Bluebonnet photos on the way home from church this morning. If you're from around these parts, you know what that hubbub is all about. I've got photos of myself in Bluebonnets from when I was old enough to stand up in them!

I don't know about you, but I'm ready to get out and do some fun spring crafting/planting/creating. I know I'll certainly be inspired with the party! Last week's party was another fun one. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and link up! 

Below are a few things making my to-do list a bit longer. If you were featured, feel free to grab a button.

Desi over at SteakNPotatoesKindaGurl shared a fabulous recipe for Sausage Cheese Breakfast Biscuits. Whoa, nelly...these are not your mama's sausage balls, friends!

Love this fabulous DIY Ruffled Bedspread from Want to Get Crafty?. The colors are so sweet and she even shared that the monogrammed pillow was an iron on! WOW.

Kelley from Miss Information Blog snagged this awesome window (+ two others) for free when her neighbors got new ones. And the old ones were going to be taken to the dump...cRaZiNeSs!

Amy from Life is Sew Daily put together this adorable Monogram Wreath for spring. I love the bunting 'Welcome' banner. I just adore this and all of its awesome details. 

Claire from A Little Something in the Meantime created this great tray that was a fabulous Goodwill find. Loving the robin's egg blue and chalkboard center. 

Joan from Chocolate, Chocolate and More created a Chocolate Chantilly with only two (or three, if you like) ingredients. Mmmmm.   

Kate from A Creative Cookie gives a wonderful tutorial on creating these beautiful Pysanky Eggs. So gorgeous! 

 Mom 4 Real's Jessica had some inspiration from her kitty when she did this desk redo. It looks wonderful in her crafty space!

Bonnie & Trish were also wreath-making last week. Love, love, love this Robin's Egg Blue Wreath they shared at Uncommon Designs Online.

Rita, over at Pink Polka Dot Creations made this adorable printable (you can download it on her site) that she originally intended to be a banner. But then she came up with this adorable display and gives DIY steps on how you can, too!


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. 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!
