Girls Day Out and Homemaking Link-Up Weekend

Hello!  Welcome to another great Homemaking Link-Up Weekend!  I sure hope you've had a lovely week!  I don't know about you, but I am SO ready for some relaxation time!  Here is a cute ATC I worked on late last night.  I was ready for bed but knew I had this swap to do and wanted to do ONE more productive thing...so I made this!  The lace at the top was hand-crocheted by a Finland friend's great-grandmother and the feather was found by one of my sweet kids!
Today, Lynzie, Selah, and I went for a LONG shopping day in Eastern Washington!  The girls wanted to dress up like Anne of Green Gables and her friend, Diana Barry. 
While we were in Michael's Craft Store, I came across this cute craft made from terra cotta pots!  Adorable!
However, this awesome microwave at Target takes the cake!  Isn't this adorable??  I wonder how much convincing my husband would need.... (ETA: wouldn't you know it---I told my husband about it and now he's like "GET IT"!!! Ha! Gotta love someone who appreciates my weird quirkiness! :)

Don't forget the quarterly Giveaway Jubilee for the month of March! Would you like to participate as either a giver, a winner, or both?  Click my adorable new button for all the details!

And...now it's time for this week's Homemaking Link-Up Weekend!

Would you like to participate in the party each week but just can't remember to link up?  There's a couple things I can do to help you out with that!  First, there's a cute button at the top of my sidebar that you can put on your blog to serve as a reminder for you---and an advertisement for me!  Secondly, I can send you an email reminder!  I send out a short email to participants who've requested one on Wednesday nights to remind everyone about the party.  Please let me know in the comments below if you'd like me to do that for you!

I'd love to have you link up your homemaking posts below!  Hope you have a GREAT weekend!
