Showing Off

Wow!  Yesterday was the biggest link-up yet  Thank you everyone!  As it grows, just a quick question - do you like having all the links bunched together or would you rather have a couple of separate areas, like treats in one sections and crafts in the other??  Just wondering.  Here are a few that stood out to me - did you see them amongst all the great posts?

Felt Treats over on Life is A Party - I have never made felt food, but it fascinates me - maybe one day...

For treats of the non-felt variety, look at this overloaded ice cream cake on Monster Mama - yum!

A couple of sewing projects stood out to me because they are on my to-do list.  First the kitchen towels on Adventures of One Crazy Lady - I plan to do something very similiar this week (and I love that lemon fabric - I almost bought it the other day).  Then the recovered ironing board - I even have my fabric ready to roll for this project.  Glad to see on Whimsy Lane Crafts that it doesn't look too hard (and I'm also loving that Nicey Jane fabric - I just ordered some from the same line for an apron).
For crafting I am loving the idea of this canvas.  You stick letters on, let your kids finger paint all over it, then peel off your letters to reveal the white canvas.  Check out the details at Impress Your Kids.  Sounds like a fun end-of-summer craft.
Finally, I want to start a new thing here on the Showing Off post.  I have been big into craft contests lately, so with that idea in mind I want to start pointing out which link got most views.  This week is was the Paper Cake over at Cute As a Fox - and you can cut all the shapes on your cricut (oh, if only.....)

Thanks for linking everyone!!  If you were featured feel free to grab the new and improved button (get it - Sugar Bee, Sweet Buzz - -eh?)
