Showing Off - my picks

Looks like everyone is in full swing for the holidays - so fun!  Here's a few that I loved:

Glitter snowflakes at Mess for Less - I know my girls would LOVE to make these!

Super cute Christmas outfit over at Threading my Way:

Melly Sews made some poinsettia headbands - I think I need to whip some up! She has a quick tutorial:

I love how this wreath is all silver - job well done, over at My Covered Bridge:

I wish I could knit - look at this cute dress that a little bit of everything made -wow!

There were so many cute treats linked up - for example, these super cute ornament cake balls from A Step in the Journey:

The Crafty CPA has a whole series on holiday pillows - love this snowflake one:

Southern Scraps put together a pom pom garland - this is on my to-do list!

You can make your own bows - - Sew Stylish Boutique gives a quick run down:

You know I am not the biggest fan of houndstooth, but how can I not love it when it's on cute little shoes?!? found over at A Jennuine Life:

I am loving all the ornament pillows this year - here's a version from Keeping it Simple:

I love this quilt over at Sweet Bee Buzzings - you have to check it out!

AND, let's see who had the MOST VIEWED LINK - - -

woah - - I just checked it and have to tell you, I knew my aunt Jennifer and Kate (her daughter, my cousin who I mention all the time) linked up, but I wasn't seeing their links (I didn't realize they were so early in the party) when I was picking features.  Well guess what - - Jennifer was the most viewed link and Kate was second most viewed - weird!!!

So Jennifer showed off her gingerbread house - which I've seen in person - amazing - she just started a blog, Studio 103:

And Kate - who just had back surgery (note her on the couch in my paper ornament post - guess she wasn't kidding about having a hurt back!) - - let's see if I can dig up a picture of when we went to see her in the hospital (I'm sure she'll appreciate this....)
Since she's down and out, her husband had to take up the slack in the crafting department - he made this fabulous tree topper - - she also has a fairly new blog, A Piece of Kate's:

Thanks for linking everyone!!  If you were featured feel free to grab the button:  (oh, and if you were featured on FB, or if you're featured later this afternoon, you're included - grab away!!)
