Make it Pretty Monday - Week 40

Hello World!  Hope you had a grand weekend.  This week is the start of Spring Break here and I've got some things I really need to get done so that I can start sprucing up the yard and getting ready for Easter Sunday.  Are you ready to see the features?  Some really good stuff this week!  On to the Queens of:

Make it Pretty Monday
Your Favorite - Most Views
Pretty Nichole's little Bunny Wreath hopped on into first place with a ton of views.  To get the tutorial, hop on over to Pinkie for Pink

Make it Pretty Monday
Craft Queen
Pretty Noreen made this little Easter wreath out of a paper plate.  To see how she did it, scoot on over to Crafty Journal

Make it Pretty Monday
Shopping Queen
 Pretty Meegan has picked up the hobby of thrifting.  I say a very good use of one's time.  Pop on over to What Meegan Makes to see how she transformed all of her treasures.  

Make it Pretty Monday
Furniture Transformation Queen
Pretty Rachel does not have just one Union Jack to show off, but three!  The above happens to be my favorite.  To see the rest, head on over to Shades of Blue Interiors.  

Make it Pretty Monday
Sewing Queen
Pretty Holly just had to have one herself.  So, she made this lovely Burlap Rosette Pillow.  Holly and her pillow can be found at Holly's Stamping Addiction.

Make it Pretty Monday
Culinary Delight Queen
Pretty Kelly is offering up her delectable homemade chicken soup.  I know that some of us are ready for a good warm-up.  So, while we wait for the weather to thaw, this soup can warm us up on the inside.  To get the recipe, pop on over to 
The Moon and Me

Make it Pretty Monday
Dessert Queen
 Pretty Sherri made these darling Easter Basket Cupcakes.  They are almost too pretty to eat.  Sherri and her cupcakes can be found at Southern Blue Celebrations.  

Make it Pretty Monday
DIY Queen
Pretty Jamie...I almost have no words.  Almost.  Absolutely Amazing Transformation.  You really must go check this out and be ready to pick your jaw up off the floor.  Head on over 
to Better With Age to have a gander.

Make it Pretty Monday
Tablescape Queen
Pretty Stacy is breaking out the bunnies getting ready for Spring.  Aren't they cute?  How could you be serious around such cuteness. Pop on over to Sweethearts & Sweet Tarts to say hi to Stacy and her bunnies.  

Make it Pretty Monday
Home Decor Queen
Pretty Luisa got busy and organized and decorated her craft room.  You really must go and see the other views of the room.  I think I would actually do a craft or two in this room.  Scoot on over to Living and Learning with Luisa to see the transformation and of course her cute puppy dog. 

Make it Pretty Monday
Spring Decor Queen
Pretty Debra has spruced up her door with this lovely Spring wreath that she made.  To get the skinny (couldn't resist), hop on over to Common Ground.  

Make it Pretty Monday
My Favorite
Pretty Suzy...for my love of blue and white.  Sigh.  Makes me happy.  To see all her lovelies head on over to At the Farmhouse.
