Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party #229

We are into the beautiful long days of summer where it is hard to believe it will ever end. School is still far enough away we can remember and encourage our kids to lay out in the grass and watch the clouds go by (if your kids are like mine you have to put the electronics in timeout, to make them go outside). We love the outdoors and all the beautiful warm days & love to spend time with family during a more relaxed time of the year.  I know you are going to love the features this week. Campfires are one of my favorite activities and you will see why I could not resist the first feature post. Grab the kids and go outside and enjoy some summer snacks & fun. ~Susan @craftingafamily.com


On with this week's features!

Summer is all I have on my mind & there is one thing I love most about summer, it is campfires and S'mores. Anything that is about S'mores I love and All That Jas's recipe of "The Best No-Churn S'Mores Ice Cream" grabbed my attention.  She says "it is the best and the only recipe you will ever need".

Any summer party that includes kids will love this next recipe from Crystal & Co.  Just the presentation makes any meal a party. Amazing Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes, but wait you do not need ice cream. These adorable cupcakes look like a Sunday but are all cupcake. A perfect party treat.

All summer long crafts are a big part of the fun we have with our kids. White House Crafts has the perfect cute summer craft to make with your little ones that they will want to make tons of them. Check out Metallic Washi Tape Bumble Bees, no stingers & tons of fun.


I like to decorate my home to remind me of summer vacations. Rain on a Tin Roof has just the summer fun beach style for a mudroom & laundry room with Mudroom & Laundry Room Makeover Reveal. What a beautiful design & imaginative decorations. I have already pined!
