Making Monday [#12]

Even though I really can’t even believe that it’s November already I’m glad that it is because it’s my favorite month and Thanksgiving happens to be my favorite holiday.  This year November has another thing for me to celebrate. My grandbaby girl turns 6 months old!  So fun!

We know life is so busy for each of you and are so glad that you take time to share all of your fantastic recipes, crafts, ideas, and decorating projects with us here.

Welcome to this week’s Making Monday link party.



The party where you can find fun new creative ideas and tasty recipes shared by amazingly talented people.
Every Monday bloggers stop by to link up their posts and then we can all check out what they are sharing.

This party is hosted by Gracie and me {Lori}, and your projects will be shared on both of our blogs.

Design Challenge: Look for Less from Kitchen Table Art

Cream of Crab SoupCream of Crab Soup from A Bright and Beautiful Life

These are the fantastic features from last week’s party
chosen by Lori of A Bright and Beautiful Life :

#1.  Cara over at The Craft Dictator made this cute Thankful Sign using paint color chips, a wooden placemat, and a few other supplies.  I’m loving the colors and texture and I think it looks so cute hanging on her sign post {it would look great on a door, too}.

#2.  I love wraps like this Chicken Caesar Pita.  Robyn at Robyn’s View recreated this sandwich after one of her favorites at a Mediterranian restaurant near her workplace and she says hers is just as good as the ones made at the restaurant.

#3.  Right at this moment I’m not sure if there’s anything that sounds much better than these Ballpark Pretzel Bites served up with mustard.  Rebecca at Living Better Together shows us how to make them and they look pretty darn easy.  She also gives us a couple of other ideas for serving them.

#4.  Erin at Elizabeth Joan Designs is sharing some free napkin ring, place card, and placemat vintage Turkey Place Setting Printables.  And she has put together a neutral Thanksgiving table that is so pretty.

#5.  Oh, Mrs. Tucker brings us Russian Tea Cakes Done Right.  Traditional tea cakes & caramel.  Enough said.  Check them out.

#6.  With it’s sausage, veggies, and beans, this Super Easy Italian Sausage Soup looks perfect for cold fall/winter evenings.  Cynthia at Feeding Big puts this soup together and has it on the table in about 45 minutes.  What’s not to love about that?

Thank you ladies for linking up these fabulous posts last week!
Please know that we appreciate you and hope you’ll share your recipes/projects with us again this week.

If you were featured feel free to grab a feature button and link up again this week.
