Toast of Tuesday!

Oh wow.
You guys amaze me!!
Last week's Wow Me Wednesday gave me so many great ideas and inspirations that I hardly know where to start!!
Here are a few of my favorites.


Kathryn from the Dragon's Fairytail has been growing lettuce in rain gutters!! Go check her out, she's also my fabulous, 
cutie sister-in-law whom I adore!


I love me some color!! Lindsay from artsy-fartsy mama made these super-simple, rainbowlicious yummies!!


I'm in desperate need of some ribbon organization 
and I'm loving this idea from Katie at Sew Woodsy
All I need now is a crafty husband. :)


Kyla from Funky Polkadot Giraffe created this super-crafty printable in 5 different colors! Fun, fabulous, and FREE!! 
I'm partial to the one in aqua myself. :)


Speaking of aqua, I'm LOVING this fabulous desk makeover from Desiree at The 36th Avenue! You would not believe the process, so go check out the details!!


I'm pretty blown away by this nursery! 
Laura at Corner House left no corner untouched in her son's room. I'm pretty sure I need to go redo my entire house now.

I can't wait for the party tomorrow!!

Go Mama Monday - Life Is Sweet!

For my last week with OMTWI, I had to do a craft knock-off.


And this SWEET piece of art came together!!


I used some favorite scrapbook papers,
 threw in a super-sweet quote,
mixed it all up with modge podge,
and crowned each confection
with jewel buttons for cherries!


I'm LOVING it!!

Foodie Friday - Last Meal!

So since tomorrow is supposed to be the end of the world - HAHA - I thought I'd do a special Last Meal edition of Foodie Friday.
Dana, the Homesteading Housewife starts us off with these
oh-so-delicious potato skins!! Man oh man!
Who doesn't love bacon, cheese and sour cream??
Corn Chowder
The Kitchen Wench shares her favorite recipe for corn chowder. Again with the bacon!! Love it!!
Ashley from Make It and Love It lays out the perfect Chinese Chicken Salad. I totally think this could have bacon added to it. Just sayin'.
Sook the Cook makes my mouth water with this recipe for baby back ribs on a bed of rice. Oh my.
My favorite part.
DESSERT
Jane Deere gives us step-by-beautiful-step directions to make this key lime cheesecake that I've been dreaming about for months!!

Oh, I could just die and go to heaven with a meal like this!!
What would your last meal be???

Tasha is kind and super-crafty! Go check her out!!

Toast of Tuesday!!

I'm so sad that Wow Me Wednesday got cut off early last week before you all could link up! Of course we still had lots of fun projects shared!
Here are a few of my favorites.
Sharon showed us how to make this darling bouquet of cupcakes! If I'm not going to get real flowers, bring on the cupcakes!!
Melissa made this FABULOUS party for her daughter.
I am amazed at all the little details that went into it!
I'm loving this cute board Angela made to keep kids in the know about what's happening! It's so hard for my kids to understand days, so I know this would be great for us!

Thanks for sharing all your craftiness!!
Be sure to come back tomorrow and link up your latest and greatest at Wow Me Wednesday!!

Go Mama Monday!! - Polkadot Mobile

WOW!! Last week was crazy!! Blogger was not letting me onto my blog to post and Wow Me Wednesday closed early!! I was so sad. :(
On to a new week!!
For the second round of OMTWI, we had to come up with something under $5!! No materials could be used that we already had. So hard for me!! I love to raid my crafty stash!!
I intended to use paint chips to make it even cheaper! After I picked them up from Home Depot, I realized that they had writing on the back and had to use scrapbook paper instead.
The dots were flying fast and furiously!!
The most tedious part was tying them all on to the wreath, but it was also really fun!
 TA DA!! Hope you like!
