Link It or Lump It Link party #23 {Plus Features}

Well, I survived the week (barely)...the snow, the never-ending snow days, and the polar vortex nearly leveled me...but I'm back with the 23rd edition of the Link It or Lump It link party.  Whew! Every week more and more of you are linking up which means this party is getting better and better. Plus this week we're super excited because we have our very first guest co-host! Meet Brittany the blogger behind Confessions of a Secret Crafter.

Brittany shares a little about herself with us and all of you...While I am relatively inexperienced with blogging, my love for writing, crafting, and sharing my interests has compelled me to develop Confessions of a Secret Crafter: A College Girl’s Guide to Crafting on a Budget. Here, I’ll share my ideas for student-friendly projects that are based on current fashion, art, television, and all things glittery. I hope to inspire you to love crafting, and to provide the tools necessary for you to live life fashionably while on a modest budget. 

Before we get to our features here's a look at what yours truly has been up to this week....

Alright, moving on to some features...
Persia Lou shared a tutorial for this 'nearly free' giant chalkboard! She has it styled so cute for Valentine's Day, too!  Great ideas over on her blog, I definitely suggest you check it out!

Vintage Paint and More  shared her festive Valenetine's Day mantel...obviously made with a whole lot of DIY love.

Seasoned Homemaker created this beautiful faux Antique mercury mirror and gave us a peek inside her lovely home.  Great tutorial!

And finally, Palmetto Chicks  shared a side table makeover that we just couldn't resist! You gotta see what it looked like 'before'.

If you were featured go ahead and brag a little - grab that "I was featured button" and show it off all proud! You deserve it! 
Two It Yourself

Not a feature this week on 2IY? No worries, go check out the features picked by:
 Allison from Dream A Little Bigger

 Now let's get to the party. The more the merrier so go ahead, show us what you've been up to by sharing a link or two or three to your best blog posts (please link to posts and not your blog's homepage)! 

The RULES – because a world without rules is chaos:
  1. Link anything you made yourself but not your Etsy Shop, Giveaways, or blog homepage.
  2. You must Link back Two It Yourself to be considered for next week’s feature roundup! So grab that awesome button up there or link back to one of the party hosts with a text link.  We don't mind if you link up on a Linky Party page or on the post you're sharing. 
  3. Don't be a link and leave blogger.  That makes us sad.  Click through one or two of your favorite links and leave some comment love!
  4. Please no repeats. If you linked it up last week, share something new.  

  5. Thanks for stopping by 2IY! If you like what you see, we'd love for you to pin it!
