Welcome to Happiness is Homemade! I’m choosing the features for the month of February. Before we get to this week’s features, let’s check out what’s been going on here on the blog over the past few days. Be sure to head over and link up on Crafty Creators before you go! Katie from My Messy Messy Mess will be choosing our features and writing the posts for the month of April.

You’ve still got 2 weeks to make your DIY Mother’s Day gifts, and this faux leather photo keychain would be perfect for any lady in your life who needs a little love on that special day! It would be a great graduation present too. Can you imagine if you placed a new set of car keys on them to honor their hard work over the past 13 years?? You’d have to save money in that case, so it’s a good thing you can make about 5-10 of these keychains for $2.50 lol!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #477



Welcome to the Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #477 – Katie here from Love My Messy Messy Mess and I’m finishing up my hosting responsibilities for the month of April!  
As a music teacher, the months of April through the end of the school year can be absolutely stuffed with concerts and performances.  I’m feeling the heat now – 3 concerts over 12 days!
It’s time to get to this week’s party – simply scroll down to see all the posts that have been linked up by our participating bloggers!

This Week’s Features

I have only been to Disney World once with my family but I am hooked for life!  There is always something new and exciting to do there, so of course I want to go back.  Check out how you can Save Money On Your Disney Vacation with These Ideas from Jennifer at Juggling Midlife.  
So here we have a donut, we have maple glaze, and we have bacon. Need I say more?  Go check out this recipe for Baked Maple Bacon Donuts.
I am always looking for fun new cocktails to try out.  With summer quickly approaching I thought this recipe for a Tipsy Mermaid sound AND looked delicious!
I have seen wood burning kits on Amazon and always thought it would be neat to try one.  Look how cute this DIY Woodburned Board from Creatively Beth turned out.  The possibilities are endless with this DIY – wedding shower, new home, you name it!

Bonus Feature


I saw this recipe for S’mores Brownies shared at the party last week and I HAD to feature it!  Sounds like the perfect summertime treat to me.
Did you know we have a Pinterest Board where all features are saved to?  Save our pins to your own board for your future reference, easy peasy!
