Saturday Sparks Link Party 46

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 46!
Winter is in full swing and I see many people are taking advantage of the time spent indoors - getting creative, getting organized and cooking up some delicious recipes.
Now, onto the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 45.
First Project of the Year at Chateau Chic. Mary Alice shows us the beautiful results of an 'a-ha moment' that she had. 
DIY Large Chalkboard at Suburbs Mama. Rita transformed a craigslist find into this wonderful chalkboard and shares the DIY steps involved to recreate it.
Milk Paint Dresser at Practically Perfect Home. Lisa gives a dresser a DIY vintage look and shares her experience with using MMS Milk Paint.
2013 in Review at 24 Cottonwood Lane. Jenna shows us the most popular posts from 2013 as chosen by her readers.
Valentine Spoolies at Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson. Jann created some lovely 'spoolies' using vintage Valentines and goodies from her stash.
Family Activities to Survive January at Lou Lou Girls. Kimberly has complied a list of fun things to do with your kids during the winter months.

Having to Say Goodbye at Little Brags. Christine's gentle giant 'Brucie' was called home and the family is feeling the pain of losing him. Please stop by and offer your condolences.
Wood Photo Ornament at Artsy Vava. A unique business card inspired Artsy Vava to create this personalized ornament for a friend.
Spicy Edamame & Healthy Snack Ideas at Hello Little Home. Ginnie kicks of her new monthly series: Motivation Monday with this post filled with healthy snack ideas.

Dairy Free Stuffed Shells at ABC Creative Learning. Victoria shares a recipe for Stuffed Shells that are dairy free and she says still manages to be delicious.
  Weekend Breakfast Recipe at The Blessed Hearth. Faye shares a recipe for 'Herb and Garlic Spread' that sounds amazing. Perfect timing for us as one of my daughters was told that Dunkin Donuts (a popular - like one on every corner popular - coffee and donut shop in New England) is discontinuing their Chive Cream Cheese.
 Winter Energy Cookies at Yesterfood. Joy shares a healthy cookie recipe that she says are tasty, filling and satisfying.
And lastly, a recap of my share from the party - Tassel Wreath Tutorial. This wreath was a fun project that works up quickly. I hope it inspires you to make one for yourself.
