Naturally-Nifty Party #18

Oh how I have missed all my bloggy friends! I am so glad that you all had a great time at the linky party without me last week! Thanks to all that linked up their amazing projects! It was so much fun to come home from vacation and be able to read up on all the creative things you have been doing!!
Please be sure to grab a Naturally-Nifty Party button to display on your blog so that your friends can come join in on the fun over here!!

(You can find the code in the top tab: "Grab a Button")


Here's our FEATURES from last week's party! 

I absolutely love this NIFTY IDEA! If we were giving a niftiest idea award, this would probably be the winner!! Marija over at Tousled Day  made this great color-blocking clutch out of a wooden placemat! How fun is that!! I most definitely want to try this--imagine all the cute place mats you could find at Target or Pier 1 Imports, you could make some very cute and summery clutches!! Stop by and see how she did it, and try and make your own! 
Simply Sweet 'N Savory shared this amazing almond cookie stick recipe! I really want to try this.  It reminds me of a lot of the meal bars that I use, I would definitely try and make it health-friendly, and even dipping a side of it in dark chocolate would be amazing!! Head over and check out this great recipe and see how yummy it looks! 

One of the best ways to use something old to decorate and make things look awesome is to use old books or book pages! Even better than that is using old MUSIC BOOK PAGES! And that is exactly what Revolutionaries did with this awesome piece of wall art! Since she is a musician, this fits perfectly! Stop by to see the full project! 

Treat & Trick shared this awesome Spiral Apple Bread Recipe with us this week! This looks absolutely amazing! Even before it is baked, it is so pretty! And I bet with a little butter and cinnamon with it it would taste amazing! I must put this on my list of breads to bake! Take a look at her blog to get the full recipe!

The sisters here at Natural-Nesters are so excited to get to feature some of our wonderful reader's Niftiest things this week! We even have a Reader's Choice Feature this week which makes us very excited! We want yall to have fun at our party, so check out the features, link up your great stuff, and then check out some other links....then come back here and like your favorite ones.(You can even like your own!)
We hope you have fun at our party, and we can't wait to see what everyone links up !
These easy and cute felt flowers can make some wonderful and cute wreaths, or can be used for any other project you want.  Go over and check our the blog Mrs Priss and let her teach you how to make them.  I made my own in just like 3 minutes.  It is definitely an easy flower to make, and different than most I have seen! I love it! Thanks for teaching me! 
Marilyn from 4 You With Love shares a wonderful family table game with us...something that will make dinner fun for everyone! She even shares a great memory from her own family when they played this game! Part of it allows adults to act as children, and the children to act as adults! It is fun for everyone, go check out all the details and try it with your own family tonight at dinner. 
Lynn over at Scrapity Anne gives us a recipe for an amazing eye makeup remover.  As I woman, I know how hard it is to get that stuff off, and the clothes and stuff you can buy to help add up $$$ so I am excited to try this out and save some money in the process! Head over to her blog to get this great recipe! 

The room makeover at PB&J Stories is one of my favorites this week! Not only because of my love for yellow and gray and me being envious of wanting my room decorated in those colors, but because of all of the great stuff she did here! I love the different patterns together, the way she is able to use space for an office area, and just the entire transformation of the room is huge! Plus have you noticed the hidden organization she has here? Her cute trunk bench at the end of her bed doubles as a filing cabinet, and she uses one of the drawers in her dresser to put her printer! It is great! Head on over and check it out! 
And this week we finally have a feature blog that was chosen by YOU! We give our readers the opportunity to like the links they have visited, and the one with the most likes will be the Reader's Choice Feature! 
This week, that award goes to Bumblebee & Sophie who was also featured here last week for her wonderful sewing skills! Stop by and check out the wonderful Valentines gifts she made! There are multiple different ones, all so unique and fun and so well sewn. Here she has made a cute lunch bag, and another one of my favorites are the mittens she made! Be sure to stop by and check her out!

Naturally-Nifty Linky Party #3 & Features

Thank you to everyone that joined in this weeks linky party. We had a lot of fun looking through all of the amazing creations. We really enjoy having these parties because we are meeting new blogger friends and getting new ideas. 
Eventually we really would like to have a Reader's Choice Feature, but we haven't had enough likes on the links, so be sure when you visit links in the party to come back and like your favorites! 
All I have to say about this project from Full Circle Creations is that she is not only creative and crafty, but a great visionary! I feel like for this project you really had to see ahead to the final outcome, I just don't know if I could've ever thought of anything so unique and great! You have to go see the raw materials of this clock and you will realize what I am talking about! I love the outcome and would love to put a clock like this on my mantel! Great job! 
Darby over at Life with the Hawleys made some awesome homemade dog treats! This is so handy and I'm sure the dogs think they are yummy! The great thing is, is that she has been able to try out several different dog bone recipes! I for sure want to get my hands on one of those dog bone trays so I can start treating my pups to this sweet stuff! 
Condo Blues created these cute labels for her homemade cleaners. I love it. I love the fact that she makes her own cleaners, as do I, and has cutesy labels. My bottles are merely labeled with a permanent marker! :) They do not look near this cute. My goal is to get this finished by the end of March for my own cleaners. I love how the font an style she uses seems so fancy. This definitely takes away from the boredom of cleaners! :) I can't lie though, I am very interested in this Vodka Fabric Refresher and the Stain Remover. 
How cute is this sewing machine cover from Bumblebee & Sophie? I love her work. Skip on over there and see the things that she makes. I especially love her personalized tag that is on all of her products. I wanted to make a sewing machine cover as well- but I was going to use just one fabric. I love her stuff because she uses different fabrics so it is not boring! 
Now...for the Naturally-Nifty Linky Party #3! Remember link up all your favorite things! We want to see it all.

Naturally-Nifty Linky Party #2 & Features!

We are so proud of our first linky party ever! And so thankful for all of you that participated! We cannot believe that we had 64 link ups on our first party!
Now...we are so excited to get to feature a few of those great ideas that you all had! Be sure to copy the Featured on Naturally-Nifty Party Button and put it on your page (can be found on our left side bar).
So here's some of our favorites! 
This awesome piece was transformed from a family entertainment center to a wonderful play kitchen.  The Things I Do For Moo did a wonderful job on this project, and I know that Moo absolutely loved playing with it! My favorite part is all of the detail....the tiles on the backsplash, and the little menu chalkboard! So creative! I am seriously on the search for an entertainment center to create a kitchen for my daycare.

My Life's a Treasure create a Family Binder. I really like this because it seems it could be a huge help in staying organized in your family. Both of us enjoy doing things for our home and family and I think that this binder is a great way to help us stay on top of it. One of us is a little more organized than the other, so maybe that other sister should really think about using it. We will let you just guess which sister you think is the most organized. :) Great job on this. 

I absolutely love the chair reupholstery job done over at Cotton Pickin Cute. I love this one so much because I just finished my first furniture job in January.  Although it wasn't reupholstery, I sewed new cushions and I know how good it feels to look at the work you did in your home and be full of pride for how it turned out.  Great job, the whole set is beautiful! 
I love the crocheted camera strap by Seven Alive. She did a great job, and I am very interested in making my own.  I also LOVE the colors yellow and gray, which I have mentioned, so this is right up my alley. It really makes your camera personal and fun! 
And since it is Valentines Day we wanted to feature these wonderful Conversation Heart Cheese Cakes made by Hungry Happenings.  These are so festive and so fun, I would love to serve some of these wonderful hearts to my family for Valentines Day! 
Thanks so much to everyone for linking up! 

Now...for the Naturally-Nifty Linky Party #2! Remember link up all your favorite things! We want to see it all.

Naturally-Nifty Party #1

Before we get to the exciting news about our first ever Linky Party....
I wanted to share a few of my favorite Pinterest ideas with you! 
If I haven't told you already, I love the colors yellow and gray, and I get so excited and inspired by all the great projects that use this color combination.  So I am going to share some of my top Pinterest picks from my Board: Yellow & Gray
 I love the entire look of this room. With all the different patterns, on the bed pillows, to the rug and stool.   It is so daring to me, but also works so well together.
Along with yellow & gray, I love trees, so this explains why I love this piece of art.

This chair is so great! I would never think to use these two different patterns together, but it really looks great!  

I am so inspired by this piece! I love the idea of using yellow and gray (with giraffes) in a baby room.  This might finally be my chance to have this color scheme in my house.  I think the next room I will be redoing will be when we decide to have kids, so this is definitely in my future!  

They took the yellow & gray color scheme to a whole different level and I LOVE IT! It is such a bold statement on the outside of their home and it looks so classy to me! 

Love the wedding colors...this works so well together! 

Then of course I love this look on the outdoor furniture! Especially because it is my pin.  This is the furniture that my husband and I made together from scratch. You can read more about it HERE.
