Making Monday #53

Hello friends!

We're so glad you've stopped by. We know you have busy days so it means a lot to us that you still take the time to swing by and hang out for a bit! You'll notice by the number of features that last week's submissions were exceptional. I had such a hard time narrowing it down and would have chosen every single recipe and project if I could have. A BIG thanks goes out to each of you for sharing your talents with us.

Welcome to Making Monday.

This is a party where you can find fun new creative ideas and tasty recipes shared by amazingly talented people. Every Monday bloggers stop by to link up their posts and share with all you party goers. By joining in {both bloggers and non-bloggers} you will discover new blogs, be inspired to make something new, try a yummy new recipe, and most importantly make new friends!
This party is hosted by Gracie and me, and your projects will be shared on both of our blogs. We love that you're here and we love featuring you on our social media so be sure to follow us so you can see if your post gets shared!
We also pin to our Making Monday Pinterest board and we'd love to have you follow along! This is a place you can find projects from all the previous parties, too, so it is like a party every day!

This is what your hostesses have been up to lately:

Gracie cooked up a tasty looking Sausage Veggie Skillet dinner. I'll bet it tasted as delicious as it looks.
Frozen Chocolate-dipped Bananas
 Lori made an old favorite ~ Frozen Chocolate-dipped Bananas. They're easy to make and are a fairly nutritious treat.

These are the fabulous features for this week, chosen by Lori:

#1. Magazine Rack turned Book Caddy ~ Shonee at Hawthorne and Main. This is such a cute project that I actually went to a thrift store the other day in hopes of finding a caddy similar to this.
#2. Geometric Paper Bag Textbook Covers ~ Trisha at Black and White Obsession. A long, long time ago when I was in school I used to cover my books with brown paper bags and then doodle on them. This idea is much more modern and up-scale.
#3. Homemade Sopapillas ~ Leilani at Keeping Up With Mrs. Smith. I want some of these sopapillas right now but I don't have the time to make them. They're definitely in my upcoming menu plan.
#4. Driftwood Sailboats ~ Kay at White Gunpowder. I know I'm partial to sailboats but are these driftwood sailboats cute or what?
#5. No-Bake Lemon Slices ~ Eliza at Eliza Ellis. Lemon. Bars. No-Bake. These Lemon Bars are calling my name.
#6. Phone Pouch Pattern and Tutorial [FREE] ~ Debbie at Wow I Like That. These little phone pouches are adorable and perfect for teenage girls. The tutorial is great and they don't even look very hard to make!
#7. Crock Pot Shredded Beef ~ Janel at A Mom's Take. This is my kind of recipe ~ throw all of the ingredients in a crock pot, smell it's yummy scent all day long, and then sit down to a tasty meal that makes me feel like I haven't cooked at all!
#8. Rosette Pillow ~ Michelle at Home for Now. This pillow is stunning. I think it would look great in any color or pattern of fabric.
#9. Chalk Painted Concrete ~ Heather at Woods of Bell Trees. I have a love for painted concrete floors and need to get brave enough to re-paint my laundry room floor so that it looks great instead of just adequate.

We hope that you ladies are loving this party as much as we are! We just can't get over all the awesome stuff that gets shared week after week!

If you were one of the features PLEASE grab a button and share it with some friends.
