A big hug and hearty thank you to everyone for making the first TUTORIAL TIPS AND TIDBITS a great success! We had  76 participants and lots of creative ideas and helpful tips.  I think it was a great first turnout!  
There were many tutorials I would love to try and great tips that made me say, “Why didn’t I think of that!”.
Here are a few…

Sonya from BEYOND THE SCREEN DOOR showed us how to make this fabulous, modern RAG QUILT FLAG PILLOW. Isn’t this one you would love to make? She also has the best etsy shop!
Look at this delicious  SEVEN LAYER SALAD IN A JAR from Cynthia at AN ACCOMPLISHED WOMAN. I am so copying this!!!
Ann, ON SUTTON PLACE gave us very interesting information ALL ABOUT DEMIJOHNS. I learned so much about these trendy collectibles!
Stop on by BE BOOK BOUND for a refreshing lemonade at this delightful LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE LEMONADE BAR. Miriam even gave us a template for the lemonade sign!
Turn your souvenir T-shirts into sassy tote bags! Anita at AUNT NUBBY’S KITCHEN will show you how! What a great idea!!!

And here is my Tip…

I just bought a Weedeater E-Lite.This little green machine weighs only a few pounds and is so effective! I was pushing a broom for YEARS! What was I thinking!!! This is the best thing I’ve done all summer!  Walmart has it for just under $28.00!

    Congrats to Lynn…. I also want to thank you for featuring my salad. I love my blower. I have a battery powered one from Black and Decker and so grateful for not having to push a broom or fight a power cord.

    Have I said lately, it is nice to have you back…

    Hi there, love your post today. So much to look at. I’m going to make some hot chocolate, put on my jammies, and unwind looking at all this goodness! That seven layer salad looks so good I can almost taste it!

    I enjoyed this post — and I am way ahead of you on that leaf blower! I have had my HUSBAND using one on our porches and patios for YEARS!

    I always seem to be a bit behind with the parties, but congratulations on this new one. I look forward to participating when I have something appropriate to share. I am certain I will learn some new tricks by reading.

    GREAT TIP!!! “Mr. Ed’s” Christmas gift a few years back was a leaf blower…now he does all the porch sweeping!!! You are such a dear one to feature these amazing guest!!!

  12. says

    I am loving your new party and hope to join in next week. Just got home today from vacation WITHOUT JOE:(:(:( It was NOT the same. I’ll talk to you soon. I couldn’t live without my leaf blower!!! XO, Pinky

    Thank you for hosting this fun party, Yvonne! It’s always such a pleasure to visit your blog, and now you’ve got wonderful other posts to browse through! I had to chuckle at your suggestion of the leaf blower, because ours is so heavy and powerful I can hardly use it, but that’s okay–it becomes my hubby’s job then! :) He even does the screened porch for me! Happy 4th to you~Zuni

    There is so much great information on this post, Yvonne. Your tutorial party is a wonderful idea and I’m trying to think of an idea that I would like to share with everyone. I’m so inspired by how creative everybody is.

  15. says

    Yeah! I made it in time to enter your party this week (I was “Tardy To The Party” last week).I need to add you to my party list so I won’t forget to start coming every week that I have a tip, tutorial or tidbit to share. Thanks for hosting!

    Yvonne, Thank you so much for featuring the tote bag!! I’ve been meeting myself coming and going and I missed the party this week! I’ll have you on my list for next time! Have a happy 4th!
