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!
