The Handmade Hangout #46 and My Weekly Features

Hi everyone!  It's time for another Handmade Hangout!  Were you featured this week?  Keep reading to find out and meet another one of our hostesses!
Each week we will introduce you to one of our hostesses and give you a chance to get to know everyone better! We will share a bit about our blogs, our passions, and exciting recent posts and projects we have been working on.

Hey everyone! I am Christina and I blog over at Christina's Adventures.  I share all about my adventures in DIY, home decor, and making my house a home on a tight budget.

I am a busy mom with a 21 month old boy who doesn't like to sit down, and I'm 4 weeks away from giving birth to our second little baby!  As if that wasn't enough, we are working on fixing up a 1902 Victorian house into our "forever home".  You can see all of the progress on my blog and on my Instagram (follow along using #FixingUp1902 to see how far we've come!)


While I'm not rehabbing this house, I'm busy trying to eat healthy and cook well for my family:


And I just love using my little budget to make fun areas in our home, like this DIY art center I made for my little guy:

Child's Art Station

I love being a part of The Handmade Hangout - I hope you stop by my blog and follow along with all of my crazy adventures!

Now, on to the features.  As always, there are so many awesome things to choose from.  Here are my favorites:

1.  Lemon Cupcakes with Blackberry Buttercream from The Gracious Wife

Lemon Cupcakes topped with a blackberry buttercream. From #lemon #cupcakes #recipe #buttercream

2.  No-Sew Tote Bag from AttaGirl Says

Learn how to make a tote bag to match your spring wardrobe. Start with an inexpensive straw bag, and transform it with pretty fabric. The best thing? This is a no-sew project!

3.  Adorable Rain Boot "Wreath" from Home Made Modern
