Blogwarming party - Day 7

Hello and welcome to our Blogwarming Party!

We're having a bloggy open house all week to show off our newly renovated blog.
For more info on everything we've done this week, check our our party invitation here.
+ + + + +

Today's party foods are:

(It's summer. Go get some gorgeous tomatoes from your farmers market and make both of these.)

Here are two more recipes that Frank posted on his own blog, Deaf Chef at Large:

Grab a plate and come along for the tour of our new place. Don't forget to sign our guestbook!
+ + + + +

Today we can't wait to show you Crafty Stuff:
Most of my crafty things are quick, simple, and don't require a lot of supplies. Partly because I'm impatient, and partly because I just don't have the space for a lot of craft supplies, so I'm forced to keep things simple and basic.
  1. Cord Keepers
  2. Calorie Free Brownies
  3. How to dress up a pre-wrapped gift box
  4. Bottlecap craft project
+ + + + +

Today's party activity is crafts day!
You've seen some of my recent craft projects. Now I want to see yours!
Post a link to one of your recent craft/DIY project or a tutorial in the comments below.
+ + + + +

Today's door prize is another recent craft project I did: Fancy Chocolate Bars
($10 value)

These are the giant 6.8 oz Hershey's Chocolate bars in three flavors:
Milk Chocolate Candy Bar
Milk Chocolate,

Special Dark Chocolate Bar
Special Dark Chocolate,

Cookies n Cream White Chocolate Bar
and the Cookies and Cream
with White Chocolate.

Totally dressed up, of course, in scrapbook papers. Aren't they pretty? You can feel super special and eat them yourself, share them with friends and family for a special looking treat, or give them away as gifts.


+ + + + +
