Showing Off and my Subway Art

A few things:

–from now til the New Year, I’ll be featuring projects from my bookmarked to-do list – hope you enjoy that!

–In January I’m thinking of doing a series on New Years’ Resolutions that goes with giveaways (for example, Resolution: dress nicer, step my “look” up a notch; Giveaway: jewelry) – email me (mandybeez at gmail) if you’re interested in sponsoring a giveaway that could relate to a resolution (no charge for giveaways!)

–Check out what I made while you were linking up:
Remember how I told you that I won the wreath competition at Poppies At Play – well, the prize was a vinyl from The Market – I finally got a board cut and painted to mount it on – whatcha think – fab, right??

Big Thanks to Andy from Poppies At Play for the contest – check out her latest vinyl design, only $8 – love it!  Her vinyl was the best quality I’ve ever used.

–Alright, enough of all that – now on to you and your fabulous link-ups!

The Crosbie Crew has a tutorial for a monogram ornament  – looks simple and cute, my kind of craft.  Also, I love her idea of using it for neighbor gifts – you have to make it still!

I love the idea of this bandana blanket from Creative Passage – cutting fabric is the least fun part of sewing for me, and with this there’s no precutting.  And check out the quilting while you’re there – amazing.

There’s still time to make ornaments for this year – how about these colorful ones from Just Drink a Coke – they’re just jolly ranchers melted into metal cookie cutters:

Or you could make this Scrappy Owl Ornament from 3 Four and Under:

 Here’s a super cute nativity you can make with your kids at Craftily Ever After – simple and easy:

Some cute crochet from It’s a KooKoo World – (and if you love little crochet dolls be sure to check out my sponsor, JennyandTeddy, for some other cute cute patterns!)

 I’m drawn to this cute pillowcase dress from The Quick Unpick because it is shirred like the one I did HERE.


Love these junk mail gift bows from Michele Made Me.  Again, reminds me of something I’ve done HERE.

Love this wreath from The Scrap Shoppe because I’m drawn to traditional colors.  And I love the variations on size.  Once again, like HERE.

And, as for the most-viewed link……

The cute coasters from Super QT on the Hill – great gift idea!

    Wow! Did I say WOW! Is it a little crazy to be soooo excited about my first ever ‘feature’ anywhere in blogland!
    Thank you so much Mandy for bringing a smile my way!
    Oh, and I just checked out your ADORABLE shirred pillowcase dress (kinda puts mine to shame) but at the same time I thought – what great crafty minds there are in this world…. so many ideas and projects being shared… I just ♥LOVE♥ it!
    thanks again
