B for Bodacious Recipe Swap

B was a beggarly Bear,
Who carefully curled his front hair;
He said, "I would buy A red-spotted tie,
But I haven't a penny to spare."

Holy Moly . . . you all proved you really can turn a sow's ear into a silk purse. I'm just flabbergasted with how you turned plain brown kraft paper into gorgeous canvases. Congratulations to Monika Davis, Suzie McFloozy and Cheryl Gorka. You're invited to join our Top Chef designers in next Sunday's Quickfire and grab the Winning Recipe button. 

Congratulations also to player #8, Diana Larson. You've won a $25.00 gift certificate from Perfect Paper Crafting. Just e-mail me through my contact page, here, and I'll get you hooked up.


Get out your buttons, brads, bows, and burlap because our featured ingredient for our next Catered Crop Recipe Swap is The Letter B. Bears, bunnies and bees . . . anything that starts with the letter B.

Here's how we roll . . .

  • Just use something that starts with The Letter B somewhere in your project. Be sure to tell us where we can find B in your project.
  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or just add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our {button gallery}.
  • Link up and link often, but be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, May 12.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.

Need some ideas? Here's a whole gallery of creative ways to use the letter B in your projects. You can click on the inspiration board below to go to a Pinterest board with the sources of these pictures and more gorgeous ideas and brilliant tutorials. And, yes, there's some musical inspiration from Sesame street – I couldn't leave them out!


If you follow the Catered Crop Top Chef Designers – oh, and honeys, you surely should – you've already seen our Designers Jeanie and Dorcas sharing the freaky cute new release from Purple Onion Designs. Aren't they amazing?

Purple Onion Designs' newest release features Stacey Yacula's Sweetest Day images and was the inspiration for our challenge – B is for bunnies, bugs, birds, and butterflies.

One very lucky, randomly selected winner will get a $25.00 gift certificate from Purple Onion Designs. But, you know what? If you see something you like (and you will!), you may not want to wait until our drawing on May 13 to get your hands on them. They are selling out fast! And, get this, because their stamps are made out of unmounted (deeply etched) red rubber, they're very affordable – more stamps for me!

I know I'm biased because some of the Catered Crop designers are there, but you truly need to visit the Purple Onion Designs Blog. And when i say "need" I mean, really . . . like you need milk with cookies. The projects from the Purple Onion Design Team are stunning.

Be sure to come back Sunday, May 6, to see what our Chefs have dished up for you the Letter B.
