Showing Off and favorite sites

Hey Everyone - - ready for the holiday??  Hope it's great for you all.  I've got a few quick housekeeping things I wanted to tell you about.

Lately I've been getting a BUNCH of spam commenting - so I'm going to have to turn off the option to comment annoymously - sorry about that, but I'm hoping it will help with the spam thing....

Did you know that blogger now has a widget that shows your most popular posts?? - I just found out, and added that to my sidebar.  Enjoy!

And speaking of sidebar, I used to click through my "Blog Love" list every morning, but ever since I found out about my new love, the "next" button (see HERE) I don't use it - the Next button is so much more efficient, and so I get to look at so many more blogs - love it!  So I'll be taking that "Blog Love" list down to unclutter my sidebar a littler - I think I'm probably the only one that used it, but I wanted to give you a heads up just in case.

And speaking of Blog Love, I love all things bloggy and crafty - I follow a bunch of blogs but got to wondering if I'm missing some great ones.  So if you've got a minute, let's hear your top 3 favorite sites - just leave a comment and list them.  Mine change all the time - right now it's probably Tatertots and Jello, Be Different Act Normal, and Make It and Love It - - how bout you????

And speaking of love, here's my favorites from yesterday's link-up - -

I don't know much about beading, so I'm glad there was a step-by-step how-to over at Morgan Made It.

I am weak for ruffles on pants - love this whole look over at Couturier Mommy - - -and then the ruffles added to the side of leggings over at Mama Says Sew.
I made this exact pie shown at The Farm Girl for the first time last thanksgiving (and HERE's where I made if for Father's Day) - I think I've mentioned my dislike of peanut butter, so it was for my hubby that I even considered making it - and then it turned out first to disappear - it was a hit!
This Drape Cardigan over on At Second Street is so intriguing to me:
Have some spare time today??  whip up some cute little hairclips like Life is Just a Bowl of Cherrys.
Isn't this the cutest little bird - it's on a kitchen towel - you can see the whole look at Sparta Savings.
I'm weak for shirt/skirt combos, like this cupcake one over at Crazy Craftin Momma:
LOVE these fabric trees over at JAQS Studio:
Did you see?? Another great refashion knockoff over at Welcome to the gOOd Life - and big congrats to Sarah for winning the dress design contest - wow!
I had to read this post at Flamingo Toes twice to see if I read it right - she just ironed freezer paper to fabric and ran it through her printer - wow!!

Did you notice I totally forgot to look up the most viewed link last week - oops!  You guys are supposed to keep me in line on those things.  Anyways, this week, it was none other than Sarah from Welcome to the gOOd Life, again - and I had her pulled out to be featured before I even saw who had the most hits.

Thanks for linking everyone!!  If you were featured feel free to grab the button:
