Hookin Up with HoH #80

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Holidays, and a Happy Pastafarianism to you! Whatever you believe in (or don’t), enjoy your day off work! My family celebrates Christmas, but no matter what your thang is, make it a merry one. 🙂

So, are you new here? I throw the Hookin’ Up with HoH Party every week to give all of you a chance to find other awesome blogs to read. Below you will find several hundred mini links to other people’s blog posts. Have fun browsing through the links in search of new ideas. Also, if you are a blogger, please feel free to add your own links to the list!


Awesome new feature: Any projects I feature each week I will pin on Pinterest for everyone to see! Follow me on Pinterest to get in on the pinning action.

* Please refrain from posting links to shops and stores.

RECIPES/FOOD now has a separate link. Please make sure to link your recipes on the new link at the bottom.

Here are my favorites from last week’s party:

Small Garden Love made some pretty freakin’ fab driftwood votive holders.

The Crunchy Mamacita is killin’ me with this melt-in-your-mouth shortbread. I LOVE shortbread.

Thrifty101 made the most cutie-patootie terra cotta soldier I ever did see.

Tattered & Inked is my new idol. I just love her mantle, and I REALLY LOVE her reindeer silhouette painting.

What’s funner (yes, it’s now a word. Look it up in The New Allison’s Dictionary) than a Christmas Tree in a galvanized bucket? One in a galvanized bucket that’s been stenciled. That’s what. Check it out over at Our Wonderfilled Life.

A Pumpkin and a Princess made these plates of chocolate dipped goodies for her neighbors. Um, why can’t I be her neighbor? Seriously. I want this whole tray. Delish and pretty, to boot!

DIY Newlyweds is brilliant. She took an old worn out sweater and cut it into a pillow. The argyle is killing me. Everyone should know by now I’m a huge sucker for argyle.

Check out the cutest idea ever – an Ice Cream Social in a box! (Curse you Justin Timberlake for RUINING “…in a box” for me. Whenever I hear that… you know where I’m goin’ with this. Just sayin’.) Oh-me-gosh. Dying. I’m dying. It’s seriously the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Get all the deets over at Michelle Paige.

Kreative Knack is way too talented. Srsly. Fo’ shizzle people. She reupholstered two ugly chairs and made these adorable coordinating (but not matchy-matchy) His and Hers chairs. I nominate her to come finish all 10 of my dining chairs for me. Mmmm-kay?! Done.

I’ve got to try these delicious looking ginger cookies from Design, Dining, + Diapers. She’s my new BFF ’cause she blogs Gluten-Free recipes.

Look at these fun stenciled coasters from That’s What {Che} Said…. I know right?! That’s what she said. I mean, CHE! Che, people. Get your dirty minds out of the Michael Scott gutter.

I know I said that the previous 11 projects were “the cutest thing I’ve ever seen” but I really mean it this time. These Notebook Paper gift tags have got to be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Ever. (Well, at least within this 10 second time-frame.) Get cuteness-overload over at Pressed Down, Shaken Together.
