Making Monday [#43]

Hello blogging friends!
We love this party and it’s so nice to have you here again!
Thanks for being here.

I had a lot of fun looking through each of the recipes, projects, and ideas that were shared at last week’s party.  It’s always so fun to see what you’ve been working on, and I love getting inspiration from you so I can keep going and creating myself!

Welcome to this week’s Making Monday link party.

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 lately:


Gracie kicked off the summer party season with, well, a party!
She’s sharing some of her Easy & Cheap Party Decor ideas.
It’s so fun to make a party extra festive by adding some special decorations.

Slow-Cooked Roast Beef & Shredded Beef
How about this super moist, super delicious, super easy Slow-cooked Roast Beef that’s tasty eaten
either chunked up or shredded for Shredded Beef Sandwiches?  Lori shares her family’s recipe.


These are the fabulous features for this week, chosen by Lori:


#1.  5-Ingredient Mini Cheese Balls ~ Roxy at Roxy’s Kitchen.
I love how crisp these look.  I’m looking forward to trying this recipe in the near future.

#2.  Tres Leche Cake ~ Lisa at A Merry Mom.
I’ve been seeing this cake all over the internet and I’ve been dying to make one.
Now I have the recipe at my fingertips, so I had better get busy!

#3.  Adorable Crocheted Baby Shoes ~ Leilani and Emily at Just a Touch of Crazy.
Click on over for the FREE pattern!


#4.  Homemade Lotion Bars ~ Merissa at Little House Living.
This is such a great idea.  I’ve seen homemade lotion bars before but never in deodorant
containers.  These would make great gifts!

#5.  Outdoor Decorating Inspiration ~ Christine at Little Brags.
Christine shares lots of ideas to make our outdoor areas homey and inviting.

#6.  25 Summer Activities for Tweens ~ Bonnie at Our Second-hand House.
These great activities will enrich any child’s life and will keep them busy and
happy during the long hot days of summer.

#7.  Cool Summer Treats ~ Mitzi at Written Reality.
Here’s a round-up of yummy looking summer treats.
