World Nutella Day: Creative Mondays Link Up…

Happy Monday friends 🙂

Also, Happy World Nutella Day. I do love a toasted cinnamon bagel topped with lots of Nutella on top. Yummy!! Do you love Nutella too? Do you have any Nutella recipes to share here today?

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend?

We have not been too far this weekend as my Son is still recovering from flu. Not good. It really knocked him off his feet and is so weak and fragile at the minute.

I am so pleased you have stopped by to join us for this week’s Creative Mondays link up today. An amazing 146 posts were shared here las Monday. 

Grab your favourite drink and link up your creative/crafty/stylish posts with us today. Have fun hopping around this linky list finding amazing, inspiring and creative posts at this week’s party.

Now onto this week’s featured blogs:

I love polka dots and how beautiful does Shauna’s from Lipgloss And Lace, outfit look!? You can see the full outfit here: Pink Pop.

Lee from LegalLee Blonde shares 3 HOT DRINK RECIPES YOU NEED THIS WINTER but which one to try first? They all sound tasty.

Julie from Sum Of Their Stories shares this neat art Recycled Magazine Art.

These Strawberries and Cream Sugar Cookies from Kelli and Kristi over at Lolly Jane’s look delicious. I could just one or maybe 3!

You can find the recipe here: Strawberries and Cream Sugar Cookies.

How beautiful is this homemade Winter Tulip dress? I love to sew but could never make anything as beautiful as this. The Winter Tulip Dress.

Catherine from Smashing Plates Tablescapes Winter table setting look’s beautiful. Anyone else Feelin’ Frosty?

This Sweet & Creamy Avocado Dip Recipe by Michele over at The Scrap Shoppe looks so tasty. I love anything with avocados in it. Sweet & Creamy Avocado Dip Recipe.

Blogging friends Laurie and Ashley got together for a fun photo shoot that was so much fun. I really wished I live nearer to a fashion blogger. I could do with someone taking my outfit pictures and vice verser. You can find Laurie’s post here: Photoshoot With A Blogger Friend!

Fancy making some of these BerryWorld Raspberry and Pistachio Tarts?

    So many great features as usual, Claire! I am so sorry you are still dealing with the effects of the flue. Seeing your kids so sick is one of the worst things ever. And as far as Nutella goes…yum…but I can't have it in my house as my littlest is severely allergic to hazelnuts!

    Happy Monday, Claire! I'm sorry your son is still not well. Some of the bugs going round at the moment really do knock folks off their feet. Thank you for hosting. I'm sharing a really yummy oatmeal recipe full of seasonal flavours. It's a great way to start off any day plus has no refined sugars and it's gluten free!

    Love Nutella! But it's one of those things that I can't keep in the house cause I'd probably eat it all. Thanks for the feature. You made my day. 🙂
