Showing Off - my picks

Before we get to the showing off, I have to share something monumental - someone recognized me because of this blog!! (If you're reading right now, so sorry I didn't even ask your name - next time I'll be prepared and ask names and take pictures! I think I must have been stunned!)  She saw me at the library, killing time while my 1st grader was at piano lessons.  She said I probably get this all the time - but it was a first and I was so excited!  I even called Trevor to tell him I was a celebrity.

So anyways, moving on to YOU celebrities and YOUR craftiness.....

There were a couple of ereader cases, one from Young and Crafty and one from Mommy by Day Crafter by Night - both are really cute so check both sites out.  I have a Tab that I LOVE and it works as an ereader, but I haven't made it a case yet because that would cover up the camera part.  Anyone have a solution to that problem?

Crafting in the Rain covered her worn out boots in duct tape to give them new life.  I am making a mental note of this for my girls' boots - they're always dying off before they outgrow them....

Do you have a scarf needing a purpose?  NapTime Crafters made one into leggings - what a great idea!

I love this stenciled tabletop over at Ugly Duckling - - stencils are all the rage, and I love them!
There is a great bedroom redo over at Creatively Living - - remember when I was redoing my bedroom?  well, progress stalled, so it's nice to get motivation to finish!

AvSusanne used denium to cover a footstool - great idea:

Did you make magazine beads growing up?? I did!  Red Ted's Art Blog shows you how...
magazine beads

I love this tree block over at Mommy for Reals - great scrap choices!
All finished! Here's Sunni's block!

SugarTart Crafts made some pattern weights - that's on my to-do list!  Hers are so cute, and so simple!

The Shady Porch made a flower vase out of buttons - oh how I wish I had tons of buttons!!

I have wanted to try out Cathedral Windows, but they seem so intimidating - a pillow is a great way to do a small amount.  Love this over at About Blogging Time:

PACountry Crafts made a Pinkalicious Dress - super cute!

And you gals and your zig zag crochet - - every time I see one I want to make it more and more!  This is from Sweet Bee Buzzings...

And for a quilt shout-out, how about this amazing one from The Root Cellar - wow!

Most Viewed link - - the Kindle Case from Young and Crafty!

But the second most-viewed link (only one click behind number 1), again with my aunt, over at her new blog Studio 103 - it's how to patch jeans!

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!!)
