FrugalMom, You will be contacted via email by both me, and Brooke from Makin' It Domestic. You have your choice of one of the two necklaces shown below!

 And a GIANT Thank you to Brooke for providing the prize for this contest!!!

This week, I added a new section to my side bars- A feature section, showing off several different items that were posted last week on Talented Tuesday. My goal is to add and swap out the features through out the week, drawing each time from the Talented Tuesday links. If I feature you, you should get a message on the post about it!

And some features here from last week!

Junk Blossoms turned a blah old wooden table into this piece that just POPS!

 Crafty Crafts shows how to turn flowers into clippies!
Bird Crafts turned a tank top and fabric into this adorable summer dress!

 All Things Heart & Home made this great beach blanket out of terry cloth and bandanas! Seriously, how cute is that?!?

Keeping It Simple made this great car-roll-up- it stores matchbox cars, and has a figure 8 race track on it to race the cars around! Perfect for long car rides, Church, and family events to keep little hands busy! 

Lastly, the two links that received the most clicks last week are:
Remodelaholic shows you how to frame your mirror for a LOT less than stores want! 

Stories By Me shows how to make a really unique charm bracelet with your own photos!

Now, on to Talented Tuesday!!

The Rules
1) Post a blog about something you've made- a refurnish, recipes, a craft project, a sewing project, room decoration, anything you've done!

2) Add a link to your blog post- not to the blog itself, but to the individual posts! You can post more than one project, just add more links! The links should look something like:

and NOT like this:

3) Add the code below to your blog, so that others can post their projects here as well! The list will accept new links through Thursday, so if you make something new, come back and post it!

Don't forget to look at the links on the list, and let people know where you found their post at!

This Link Party will remain open and accepting links through Thursday evening!!

Thank you everyone!

J- You are SO VERY welcome! I hope you enjoy the purse!

Laurie- thank you! I keep waffling on the background, and I am not completely in love with it just yet, but since I'm doing it myself, I don't mind changing it now and then ;)
