A little over a month ago, I along with my blogger friends hosted the Holiday Link Party. We were so lucky to get such a huge response from so many of you. And now it is time for us to share our features. And like the Twelve days of Christmas my features are also twelve.
This is our second year hosting this party and I have to say this year I had a beast of a time picking out features because there were so many great ideas to choose from. I had such a tough time I enlisted my daughter's help in choosing some of the features. So it is with a heavy heart that I chose all of these because I really, really wanted to pick a lot more. But I am also very happy for the ladies that were featured. Congratulations to everyone!
First Feature for Decorating
Amber of Follow the Yellow Brick Home has decorated her music room for the holidays. And what a stunner it is, all full of music sheets, paper garlands and lots of musical instruments. And let's not forget about that gorgeous tree. Why it is enough to make Beethoven gain his hearing all over again!
Second Feature, Everything you could ask for in Oreos
This next one was chosen by my helper my daughter, who loves all things dessert and pastry. The bold colors in this Festive Sparkly Glitter Oreo Cookies immediately caught her eye! Thank you Erlene of My Pinterventures for the recipe.
Third Feature, a Stocking DIY
These lovely DIY ticking stripe stockings would look great on anyone's mantel. Vicky and Kristen of Timeless Creations have even given us a tutorial so we can make our own.
Fourth Feature, Make your Own Elf
Anna of Strawberry Butterscotch made her own Elf on the Shelf so she can display it in her home. She also has a tutorial on her blog so we can have one to keep us company.
Fifth Feature, a Christmas Tree Centerpiece
I am just loving this original tree made with ribbons. Suzanne of Pearl Street Designs shows us how to make this lovely centerpiece.
Sixth Feature, Gift Wrapping with Upcycles
You all know how much I love the earth so my upcycle loving heart was immediately attracted to this project on how to make gift tags from old cards. Lisa of Cucicucicoo also shows us how to take care of that gift wrapping.
Seventh Feature, a Christmas Ornament
Mindie of MisAdventures of a Homesteadin Mama made these adorable ornaments using scrap wood. I have to do this for next years tree, and if you have little ones they will love this craft idea.
Eighth Feature, a Beautiful Wreath
This has to be the cutest wreath I have ever seen. T'onna of Sew Crafty Crocket says it is an ugly sweater wreath, but I think there is nothing ugly about it.
Ninth Feature, Stencils for your Hot Cocoa
Don't these beverages look fabulous. Now you too can make hot beverages like a barista with Erlene's Christmas stencils for hot cocoa. Go over to My Pinterventures to see the tutorial! I expect these in my mug very soon!
Tenth Feature, Wintery Luminaries
What a lovely way to add a bit of atmosphere, with these wintery mason jar luminaries that Our Unschooling Journey has made with the help of her children.
Eleventh Feature, Crocheted Snowflakes
Anabelia Handmade has crocheted the prettiest snowflakes I have ever seen. It's times like these I wish I knew how to crochet.
Twelfth Feature, The Botanical Garden Train Show
When you visit the New York Botanical Gardens at this time of the year, you also get to see a Train Show. I had the honor of seeing this many years ago and cannot wait to get back. But for now I will enjoy it through Chaos with Coffee's lovely photos.
