The Fun In Functional! {Link Party # 17}

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 the bathroom organization post shared by Julia from Three Kendrick Blessings.

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

Remember, if you want to pin these projects, please click over to their blog first! I’ve made these images “un-pinnable” so they aren’t accidentally pinned from here. If you want to learn to make your own images un-pinnable, check out this simple tutorial.



Raquel from Organized Island shared a recipe for pumpkin pepper soup. Looks delicious, and just in time for fall!


Amy from Amy’s Cooking Adventures shared her recipe for baked mozzarella balls. Perfect to go with some tomato basil soup!


Marty from Marty’s Musings shared a pine cone door arrangement. It’s a simple project and a fabulous alternative to a wreath!


Kelley from Miss Information shared the secret to chopping onions without crying. I’ve heard of a couple of tricks, but she says this one really works!


Michelle from Delicate Construction shared a tutorial for making a slinky pumpkin. How cute is that?!


Trisha from The Sweet Survival shared her faucet handle coat rack. What an awesome idea! I love the industrial look, and the yellow color is perfect.


Kelly from Exceptionalistic shared a simple recipe for patriotic strawberries. Not only do these look delicious, but they’re cute as well!


Julie from White Lights On Wednesday shared a recipe for chocolate marshmallow meltaways. Yum, and there’s no cooking required!


Congrats everyone! If you were featured, feel free to grab a Featured button from the sidebar and add it to your blog!
