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! Linda from A Labour of Life is choosing our features for the month of May and writing the features section.

School is letting out across the country, much to the dismay of parents who feel like we just dropped their school supplies off! Thank the teachers who have put up with them all year with a summer themed gift and my free printable gift tags.

These adorable tote bags are fabulous for the beach, shopping, and even work. I created split monogram totes for my son’s teachers, and I shared 6 free designs that you can use on your own totes. Can’t wait to make one for me to keep from the pack of 6 that I bought.

This Week’s Features

Welcome to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party 481.  We are excited about another month of sharing, linking, reading, pinning and inspiration. Linda, from A Labour of Life is our hostess for the month of May, so let’s get started.

As I said last week, when my life gets overwhelming I seek inspiration from all of you. Hoping to get some fun ideas this week with HIH 481, but if you missed HIH480 hop back and see all the fun.
