Showing Off - my picks

Hey everyone - - I'm back from vacation and ready to get CRAFTY!!  as in, I want to redo my whole living/dining room - can't wait!  So I am loving looking through the links for ideas!
meanwhile, did you notice the cute little "Mr. Sugar Bee" Button I put on my blog...see it, on the right of my other buttons:

Well, Trevor put my button on his sidebar - and check out the title he gave me - well played.....

Anyways, on to featuring you....

Did you see this personalized snow globe over at The Scrap Shoppe??  LOVE it!  Random bit of info - I have like 100 snowglobes - really!

I am OBSESSED with the Olympics - I can't wait til Friday!!  I think I need to whip myself up a shirt - this one is a knock-off of one at Old Navy - they look pretty identical - all hand-done, no fancy cutting machine required.  See it over at A Piece of Kate's:

I truly LOVE this dresser from vixenMade - scored for only $5!  I really love green - they had the paint on-hand - turned out amazing:

This Maxi Dress from Pink Polkadot Creations looks so cute and comfy - love it:

Ashley of Cherished Bliss made her first quilt - it looks amazing!!  I love it!

Shannon Sews did an amazing job on her Ruffled Tote - you should see the amazing inside!

You can find all the details to this bleached denim shirt over at The View From In Here - it turned out great!!

I need a hand-held project to do while I watch hours and hours of the Olympics - maybe I could tackle a crocheted chevron blanket - maybe.  It would push my crochet limits - but look how cool it is!  Over at Measured by the Heart:

I just bought this stool while at IKEA on vacation (we don't live by one) - my 9 year old is putting it together as I type - so of course when this one from Just Us Four showed up in the link party, I had to feature it!

Sugar Baby Boutique shows us how to make a chevron maxi skirt out of striped fabric - I love the results!

And speaking of sewing, here's a cute shirt from How Do U Like Them Apples that only requires 2 seams - sounds pretty easy!

Let's see - - most viewed link for yesterday.......

This pretty dress that From Needles to Nails made - great job on it!  Serious sewing skills!
