Second, I made it to the finals of SoYouThinkYou'reCrafty - - EEK!! This week it's all the lucky crafters auditioning for next season, so I've got a week off, then you'll see me go head-to-head with Kojo Designs - stay posted for that fun!

Anything else I'm forgetting to mention?? I'm sure there is, but moving on.....another AWESOME link-up yesterday!  A few features:

Love the under-side fun fabric on this hat shown over at An Iowa Expat:

I was considering making salt dough ornaments with the kids, and so wha-la, they show up in the link-up from It's All In My Head - hers even have glitter - love it!
You know I have to pick something crochet - check out this cute little doll over at KooKoo.
Elizabeth at Sew Chatty mentions how these ruffle headbands would be a great gift for girls to give their friends - love that idea!
I know there are lots of toilet-paper-roll crafts out there, but I have to admit, I haven't really loved any - until these mini-wreaths - wow!  See the how-to over at Michele Made Me.
You can see these beauties over at My Computer is my Canvas - I've never tried runny icing, but seeing things like these makes me want to give it a whirl!
A cute and easy pieced heart applique tutorial can be found at Three Sisterz.
This is for my sis-in-law, Krista - she discovered a great Thanksgiving printable and framed it up way cute, so I know she'll do the same with this one from Crafty Kayla:
A Recovering Craft Hoarder (um, great blog title and focus!!) uses some discarded CDs to make this great decoration:
You can see a how-to on making snowflakes with paint sticks, toothpicks, etc, over at Sassy Style:
Over at Three Jewels in My Crown they made a rudolph nose that actually lights (battery-powered tea light) - genius!

And, the most visited link this week:

The CDs that Spelled Christmas that I featured above - congrats!!  I always do my choices first then find out which is the most popular link - I love it when it's something I've already picked, it makes me feel like you and I are one-in-the-same crafty likes.

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