The Fun In Functional! {Link Party #33}

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

If you’re new here, I throw this party once a week on Wednesdays. It’s a place for you to see some awesome projects and find some inspiration. And if you’re a blogger, you can link up any projects you’ve been working on for the past week and show off your creativity!

Please support the blogging community by clicking through to these projects if you find something that interests you. Your visits are important to the bloggers who share their work here! If you link up to the party this week, comment on a few other blogs as well. There’s no downside to networking with other bloggers and finding new ideas!

Last week’s most popular project was How To Make Money With Your Blog shared on So You Wanna Be A Blogger?:

How To Make Money Blogging – So You Wanna Be A Blogger


And here are a few of my favorite projects from last week. Check them out!

Please click over to the original blog before pinning; these images are “un-pinnable”! If you want to learn to make your own images un-pinnable, check out this simple tutorial.



A Smarter Way To Store Bacon - Finely Ground

When we make bacon we usually just make the whole package, but this is such a smart idea if you don’t want to cook it all at once!





Valentine’s Vase Sleeve - Lemon Tree Dwelling

I love this idea for decorating vases! It’s simple and easily interchangeable so you can decorate for holidays, birthdays, seasons, or whatever!








How To Make Marshmallow FondantAmy’s Confectionary Adventures

I’m not a cake-maker, by any stretch. But this looks easy enough I might even be able to do it and frost a cake in fondant!







Simple Trick For Easy Pie DoughA Proverbs 31 Wife

My grandmothers used this trick too, totally easy pie crust!






DIY Dog Bowl ChairsThe DIY Village

What a fun idea! I hear that it can be hard for big dogs to bend down to eat and drink once they get older, so this is fabulous. Plus super cute. And these guys have a BIG DOG! You have to visit the post and see the picture!





Winter Sock Wreath – Salt Tree

How cute! And what a great way to reuse some old (clean!) socks.





Budget BinderThrifty Crafty Girl

What a wonderful way to keep your finances organized! If you have a resolution this year to get organized about money, check this out!




Inexpensive Ceiling DecorHills Dale Home Front

I love how this looks, and you won’t believe what she used to make this decor!





White Peach SangriaThis Silly Girl’s Life

Yum! That’s about all I have to say. :-)








Clothespin MagnetsMy Handcrafted Home

What a fun way to spruce up the magnets on your fridge!
