Welcome to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party 411.  Third week of January already but we are still excited about a new year of sharing, linking, reading, Pinning and inspiration. For January, Linda from A Labour of Life is our hostess for the month of January, so let’s get started!

Welcome back 

It was an interesting week, a lot of self reflection Bloggers sharing what they are working on and what their followers loved last year.  I hope y’a;ll know how hard it is to only pick 4 posts to highlight.  which is why I want to remind everyone, take a moment and search through.  This is a space to get inspired and help each other out.

A Tablescape

I have found my grove and my feature routine so lets start with a tablescape. And this weeks feature caught my eye probably because I have been thinking hearts and flowers.Actually it was the napkin fold that caught me. What a creative heart napkin. Today thebright red heart caught my eye, A Rose Valentines table. Inspiration for the gal who loves to celebrate love. Debbee’s Buzz really nailed this one.

A Tasty Mocktail, that’s pretty too

Trying something new this week, check out this yummy looking mocktail from Everyday Savvy. This mocktail recipe is simple, easy to follow, and has just a few ingredients. Simply Juice Mixed Berry is a great base for this mocktail recipe. Great for all ages and truth be told I am thinking it aso would make a great cocktail for me with a spalsh of rum or vodka.

Valentine’s Cocoa Bombs

These easy Valentine’s Cocoa Bombs are a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The cocoa bombs melt in hot water or milk and will burst into a hot chocolate in seconds! Really fun to watch. Raquel from Organized Island really caught my eye with this version of a Hot Chcolate bomb, and quite possibly has inspired me t try my hand.

DIY Lip Gloss 

And along the crafty line how about this lip smacking lipgloss. Crazy thing it is made from Kool-aid and coconut oil, simple and easy. Plus perfect for a day of hearts to keep those lips smooth. The Socialite’s Closet has a hit with this DIY.
