Showing Off - reader feature

Hi! I am Laura and I blog over at Laura's Crafty Life!

I do a lot of DIY and craft projects, and I share some of my life as a mom of a busy 5 and (almost) 2 year old!  I had so much fun looking through the links. And I looked through all of them (well, at least the 502 that were linked up when I wrote this) and it was so hard to choose! It is amazing how many talented people can all gather in one place each week!
First up, I loved this Ranch Home Tour over at It's Overflowing. I am so inspired by all of the progress she has made on updating her house.
I love seeing other people's crafty spaces, and Desiree's craft room at The 36th Avenue does not disappoint. I would definitely be inspired to create in that space!
Anyone that knows me, knows I love Harry Potter. This Harry Potter party from Calm Crazy World looks like so much fun!
Here Comes the Sun cleverly made a light table out of a rubbermaid bin and some christmas lights. This is a great kid's activity and would be wonderful to use as a craft light table. 
My husband and I have been talking about building a kid's table for our two small children. I would prefer to not have one that is plastered with cartoon characters if it is going to be sitting in our living room. This one from Shabby Love looks great and not to "kid-ish"! 
I do a lot of jewelry making myself, but have never really tried wire wrapping. This wire wrap jewelry tutorial from My Girlish Whims is very well written and could be attempted by even a novice jewelry maker. Aren't those earrings pretty?
I love this Valentine's Day Wreath made by My Serendipity Home. You have to go check out her post to see what she used for a wreath form. Super clever and frugal! 
Are you ever in the middle of cooking and you need to figure out how many tablespoons are in a 1/4 cup or what the metric equivalent is? Head on over to Remodelaholic to print out a super cute free conversion chart you can put up on your fridge or on the inside of a cabinet.
I love a good thrift store makeover. This table from Sunny Tuesday turned out so great. I love the polka dots. So fun!
Last, but not least, I had to feature at least one delicious looking treat. I can't wait to whip up a batch of these brownie batter filled chocolate chip cookie sandwiches made by Something Swanky. Chocolate chip cookies and brownie together? It doesn't get much better than that!
Thanks again to Mandy for hosting this great party each week and letting me share my favorites (I don't know how she does this each week)!
