Hi, everyone!  Welcome to another Creative Me link up.  It’s another week of inspiration, sharing, and bragging on yourself a little bit.  It’s okay to brag on yourself a little, right?  Just incase you’re uncomfortable with that, allow me to brag on you a bit… You are awesome!  You make time to be creative, you bring your ideas to fruition, and you come here to link up with our little party.  Thank you so much!

I have a little surprise for you.  I have added one more contributor to The Southern Institute team!  Her name is Tiffany and she blogs at The Nesting Project.  She has linked up with Creative Me several times and will be our resident Foodie.  Tiffany will be posting every third Tuesday of the month, which means you’ll see her here tomorrow.  Be sure to come by and welcome her.  I am so excited to have her joining us.  If you hop over to her blog for a few minutes you will see why.  You can read her bio here too.  She is going to bring so much to our community!  

This week’s featured blog is That’s What She Said, where Lisa shared the border that she made out of ribbon.  Again, such a great idea from The Southern Institute readers!  I would not have though of doing this.



I’m so excited that you linked this up, Lisa!  Way to go!

Okay, now it’s your turn!  Just a few guidelines for linking up.  Please:
  1. Follow The Southern Institute and display the Creative Me button somewhere in your post or on your blog.  The button html is at the top of the post.  Just copy and paste!
  2. Don’t have anything new?  Show us something from your archives…old to you is new to us!  
  3. You can link up as many things as you’d like, the more the better your chances of being the featured link next week!  
  4. Visit at least two other blogs and leave some comment love.  We are a community that supports one another, right? Right?
  5. You can link up your shops as long as you sell handmade goods.  (I also have advertising available here on the blog if you’re interested, and I just cut my rates.)
Don’t forget to grab and proudly display the “featured” button if you’re project has been featured at The Southern Institute.

Hello everyone!  It’s another edition of Creative Me!  Here’s a little Father’s Day gift wrap inspiration for you.  You can use a length of ribbon to create a tie on your gift box…


Tuck the card under the tie like I did, if you like.  Very manly, don’t you think?

Are you ready to link up this week?  Each week I use random.org to choose a featured blog for the coming week.  This week’s featured blog is Bilingual Crafting and Sewing where Catrin showed us how to make a cute little fabric apple.  



The really fun thing about Catrin’s blog is that she does her posts both in German and English, thus the name!  I learned that apple is apfel!  Pay her a visit and check out her blog when you have a moment.

Okay, now it’s your turn!

Happy Monday!  First off today I want to lead you over to the Southern Fabrics giveaway.  It’s the last day to enter… don’t miss it!  


Also, if you follow The Southern Institute through Google Friend Connect, would you mind visiting the right side bar and following along in a reader or by email?  I’ll be making the switch to WordPress soon and will not have access to GFC after the switch!  I’d hate to lose anyone in the move, so please take a second to sign up over there and make the move with me! 


Can I just brag on this community a little bit?  I can?  Great!  I love you all.  Out of 163 people who linked up, there was not one person who did not have at least one visitor come to their blog through their linked project, and that absolutely warms my heart!  I love that you all are supporting each other.  It’s really a beautiful thing!  Thank you for giving this blogger the warm fuzzies and encouraging your fellow bloggers.  


Although we haven’t had as many links over the last month (it’s a busy time of the year isn’t it?) the quality of projects is still amazing!  This week’s featured blog is Cookin’ Up Good Times.  The Brady girls shared the recipe for Delightfully Delicious Coconut Cake and it looks like it lives up to its name…


Incidentally, they also linked up a recipe for French Toast Breakfast Bake that I will be making for breakfast tomorrow.  I’ll let you know how that is.  I’m guessing it will be to die for!  These women have an eBook as well!  As an eBook author I know how hard it is to market yourself, so go on over and check it out Cookin’ Up Sweet Treats for only $3.99!  (I’m sure none of you are interested in that book.) 

Okay, now it’s your turn!  Just a few guidelines for linking up.  Please:
