The Fun In Functional! {Link Party #76}

Welcome to The Fun In Functional, the weekly link party hosted on Practically Functional!

I have exciting news for you guys! I have teamed up with three of my favorite bloggers to make this weekly link party even bigger and better!!! For today, it’s still The Fun In Functional link party, just like normal, but starting on January 3, 2014 we’ll be bringing you the Creativity Unleashed link party! The party will be co-hosted each week by myself, Keri from Shaken Together, Jocie from One Project Closer’s The Better Half, and Gwen from The Bold Abode, so every link you share will be displayed across all four blogs, meaning four times the exposure!  I’ll give you more details as we get closer, but just know it’s going to be awesome! Here’s a sneak peek at the new party button!

Creativity Unleashed

If you’re new here, I throw this party once a week on Fridays and it runs through the weekend. It’s a place for you find some inspiration and show off your own creativity. At the bottom of this post you’ll find links to a bunch of awesome projects, recipes, crafts, tutorials, and more; feel free to browse around and visit any of the links that interest you! And if you have something of your own that you want to share, just link it up below!


Last week’s party was a huge success, and a ton of great ideas were linked up! Did you see the 8 Christmas tree crafts I rounded up from last week. They are all super cute, so go check them out!

And in case you missed any of the awesome posts that went up on Practically Functional this week, here’s a quick recap!

The most popular project from last week’s party was Gift Ideas You Haven’t Thought Of Yet shared on I Think We Could Be Friends. There are some seriously awesome ideas here for everybody on your gift list this year!


Now on to this week’s party!

Just a few guidelines to keep it fun, friendly, and fair:

  • Feel free to share any of your latest projects, as long as they are your projects! Please don’t link up Etsy shops, giveaways, link parties, etc.
  • Please don’t link up something you’ve shared before: we want to see your new stuff!
  • Help spread the news by grabbing a link party button below!
  • Visit and comment on at least 2 other posts. We all love new visitors, comments, and link party love!

I will be featuring a few of my favorite projects each week on the blog and sharing projects on FacebookTwitterGoogle +, and Pinterest throughout the week, so be sure to follow along to see all the crafty goodness!

By linking up your projects, you are giving me permission to feature or share them by using an image along with a link back to you. Also, I will send out a quick email reminder to everyone who has linked up once the party is live each week. If you no longer want to receive those reminders, just unsubscribe!



Please support the blogging community by clicking on any links that interest you and visiting the blog behind the idea. Your visits are important to the bloggers who share their work here! If you link up to the party this week, please visit and comment on a few other blogs as well. There’s no downside to networking with other bloggers and finding new ideas!

Link up any crafts, tutorials, tips and tricks, ideas, recipes, DIY projects (any project really!) you have worked on recently that you want to share!
