Making Monday [#39]

Welcome to Making Monday.

It’s May, which means it’s time to get serious about yard work, planting flowers and my garden, and hanging laundry out on the clothes line.  All winter long I look forward to them but then by the end of August I grow weary of it all.  Are you the same way?  Or do you have the endurance to keep up with all of the summer-time “chores”?


This is a 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 share with all you party goers. By joining in {both bloggers and non-bloggers} you will discover new blogs, be inspired to make something new, try a yummy new recipe, and most importantly make new friends!
This party is hosted by Gracie and me, and your projects will be shared on both of our blogs. We love that you’re here and we love featuring you on our social media so be sure to follow us so you can see if your post gets shared!
We also pin to our Making Monday Pinterest board and we’d love to have you follow along! This is a place you can find projects from all the previous parties, too, so it is like a party every day!

This is what your hostesses have been up to:

Lori made these Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites. They’re easy to make are are such a great little healthy sweet treat that doesn’t have any refined sugar or grains.  If you like Almond Joy candy bars, you’ll love these.

Here are the features from last week’s party chosen by Lori ~


#1.  Only 5 Ingredients and a crock-pot!  This Slow-Cooker Whole Chicken with Veggies is perfect for days when we don’t want to use our oven. Roxy at Roxy’s Kitchen.

#2. My love for Mexican food drew me to this Carne Asada Marinade Recipe. Chrystal at Happy Mothering.


#3.  Who can pass up The Best Pound Cake Ever!!!?  Not I. Especially when it’s been around as long as this recipe. Ashley at Leaving the Rut.

#4.  This refreshing Orange Julius is just in time for warm spring and hot summer days. Bonnie at The Pin Junkie.


#5.  OK.  How did they get this Master Bath out of that space? I’m trying so hard to visualize it but I just can’t.  It looks spectacular. Kayla at Home Coming.

#6.  These Pretty Drawer Soap Scents would make such a lovely gift. The stitching gives it an extra touch of prettiness. Eliza at Eliza Ellis.


#7.  Origami Box Using Kid’s Art. This is an adorable way to save and/or share our children’s and grandchildren’s precious artwork. Noreen at Crafty Journal.

#8.  Probably every little girl {and Mom} needs a Hair Bow Holder. This tutorial shows us how easy it is to make one. Monika at Life with Lovebugs.

And don’t forget, if you didn’t make it as a feature this week to check out the Pin board and to keep linking up, next week could be you.
