The Weekend Review & The Weekend Linky Party! #2

It's time for the next Weekend Review and Link-Up Party from Humble Homemaking.

First up, a quick review of the Humble Homemaking Highlights of the week....

(Note: Click on the images to go hop over to the featured page)

Homemaking Monday presented some cheap and easy Spring Burlap Cushions. Check them out! :-)

Wednesday's Wonder gave us some Spring Frames using the word Hope and some scrap fabrics.

Yummy Thursday made our mouths water with some awesome featured recipes
and the Cowboy Slice Bake from me :-)

Other fun things that happened were having my 1 Corinthians 13 Printable featured on Jill Made It, having my Photo featured for Love Month on I am.... and being the Lucky #3 Spot on Keepin' Comany Thursdays.

It was another awesome week here at Humble Homemaking so thanks to all of you wonderful readers for the beautiful comments and support you have given me.
I am grateful for you all!


Link-Up Feature Time!

Last weekend we had 29 awesome projects hooked up to the Party.
I think that's great for our first ever party which was short notice too!
Thanks for all of those who linked up. I enjoyed looking at each and every project.

I can tell picking our my favourites is going to be one of my big weekly challenges.
I want to feature everything! I loved all the projects.... so please also refer back to last weeks party to find other fantastic ideas. I am setting myself a limit of 5 features... or I would be featuring forever.

Here are some of my favourite projects from last weekend's party!

(Note: I featured my favourite food projects from the party on Yummy Thursday yesterday
so check out that for the best yummy recipes!)

Mommy Creations posted this absolutely adorable dress made from combining a T-Shirt and 2 Skirts which her daughter had grown out of. It turned into the most wonderful dress and if I had a little girl right now I would be making one!

I am on a Pillow Craze right now so this post from Pickup Some Creativity with these gorgeous 4 pillows really made me smile. The heart one in particular was adorable to me but check them all out because they are fabulous! She also has an awesome tutorial... perfect for begginners like me! ;-)

This decorated box from Jayson and Ashley was a favourite of mine. I like it not only because it is a gorgeous finished piece... but because the stones on it are from their Wedding! I am such a softie so anything with sentimental value like that wins me over. A great project though, it came out really well.

This Upcycled Hoodie Makeupbag from Hoopdeedoo was fantastic. What a super idea to use up a favourite old hoodie which isn't wearable anymore! I think it looks so classy... I love it.

I am also into the wooden sign craze right now but so many of them feature Vinyl cut by a cutting machine.
Although I do cut vinyl by hand (check out my tutorial) it still puts me off.
This project by Blue Roof Cabin features a Welcome Sign which she painted by hand! She has a fantastic tutorial and shows how to make a cheap easy stencil and a beautiful wooden sign. I am doing this project! I have my wood all ready... :-)
