Mop It Up Mondays #19

Happy day to you, friends! Summer is definitely here in central Texas!

So glad that you stopped by for the party! Last week's party was wonderful...thank you for linking up. There were BUNCHES of awesome patriotic projects linked up (the party fell on Memorial Day)! I went ahead and featured them in their own Patriotic Project Post here:

In addition to all of the red, white & blue fun, there were lots of other fabulous things linked up. Here's a few more awesome things making my to-do list a bit longer {feel free to grab a button if you were featured}:

Lindsay, from Artsy-Fartsy Mama linked up the cutest DIY Business Card Holder. She gives a great tutorial on her site...she makes it look super fun & easy.

Perfection on the grill! Crystal from Mrs. Happy Homemaker linked up a fabulous recipe for your summer grilling pleasure: Burgers with Cilantro Garlic Sauce. I'm such a cilantro fan...can't wait to try these out!

Mindie May from Bacon Time with the Hungry Hypo created these adorable Ice Cream Cone Earrings! Would you believe they start out as a safety pin? You've got to check out her tutorial.

Jenn from Eat Cake for Dinner linked up one of her savory recipes for us. Is there anything better than Homemade Spaghetti Sauce? Jenn shares her wonderful recipe that freezes well, too {always a plus}.

Sarah from Imperfect Patina shared her lovely Family Room Reveal. I'm loving all the cool and pretty colors she used in this space. What a great room.

Rice Krispie Treats got a super fun makeover over at Danielle's blog. Check out Hugs & Cookies XOXO for this awesome recipe!

Bronwyn from Queen B - Creative Me had a great idea for the desk top in her daughter's room. She used a stencil she bought for another project to transform the desk into quite the work of art!

Karyn from the Pint-Sized Baker linked up the cutest Lego Head Cake Pops! My boys are flipping over these. She gives a fabulous tutorial for these.

Seaside Shelter linked up a list of some great DIY Projects which included this awesome Union Jack Dresser.

Debbie from On the Refrigerator Door linked up a great photo project: "Take Your Photos with You". This is such a cute idea and I know a few relatives who would love this as a "brag book" of sorts to show off their kids & grandkids. 

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. The more the merrier: link up as many posts as you like. Let's MOP UP SOME FUN!
