Hi, friends!  I hope your 2017 is going just as you desire.  It's been a crazy, but wonderful week, so much going on with my family right now, I must apologize I didn't have as much time as I would have liked to work on the party and visit you all as much as  I usually do. That being said I'm going to highlight a couple of my faves tonight and hope to update this post with more features in the next couple of days. You are all such an inspiration to me that you can make it through all the holidays and activities of the new year and get so much done on your blogs! I must confess, I am not equal to your talents.

I Love JP from Sweet Inspirations super fun and pretty  Black Check and Red New Year's Table
Garden Matter shared this recipe that I can't wait to try for her Fresh Cranberry Shortbread Cookies

Make Your Own Wreath From Your Christmas Tree Clippings!

Hi, Friends! I just had to share this with you right away, as it occurred to me that you are all probably doing some of the same things as me right now, in preparation for Christmas. Please forgive me, these photos aren't up to my usual standard, but I was anxious to let you know how to do this-this weekend if you were wanting to.  Have you ever made your own wreath?

Festive, Personalized, DIY Recycled Coasters

One of the truly wonderful gifts of hosting a Blog Party, like my What to so Weekends, is that I get to go through a lot of beautiful and inspiring projects, up-cycles, crafts, recipes, decorations, and makeovers! All that inspiration usually takes me on a path to my next share with you. Some, just inspire me to get going with the projects I have already been working on, while others completely lead me to do my version of what I saw. Today's post is the latter.  A few months ago, I featured an awesome idea from Sam at Raggedy Bits!
