Talented Tuesday

Today is the first morning of school. I have to admit, this early morning thing isn't much fun. I'm typing with my eyes closed. I've been taking sleeping pills for about 2 weeks now because my insomnia is bad. My pills were not meant to allow me to be up so stinkin' early.

On to something more fun.

First up, some great items from last week's list.

In honor of school starting today (oh, my, I'm so stinkin excited!!), a coke bottle gift for the teacher. This comes from Pony Tails & Fish Scales.

This SUPER easy Vellum luminary would be great for weddings, Christmas, and Halloween! Find some pretty, designed vellum, add a battery operated candle, and line the porch, windows, or decorate the dining room table. This comes from The Craft In Me.

Last up is an adorable tea towel apron from A little of this --- A little of that. This apron would be quick, easy, and customizable to your kitchen, holiday, and personality.

Next up- a WINNER! Last week I held a contest for 1 lucky person to win a $50 gift certificate to the jewelry website, Novica.

Novica is a site that caters to artisans, as opposed to big box store items. The items found on the site are hand crafted by talented individuals from around the world. You can see my own product review and site review on the page itself here.

And on to the winner. Only a handful of people joined the contest. The winner was chosen using RANDOM.ORG.

The random winner is number 5 out of the 6 qualifying comments for the contest.

 Congratulations Mama Lusco! You've won a $50 gift certificate to Novica.com for jewelry of your own! I will be emailing you the gift code.

 And now, onto the business end of the post: Talented Tuesday. Show off your talent, ladies- I know you all have it!


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 above to each post you link to the Link Party, so that others can post their projects here as well! The list will accept new links through Saturday, 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!

4) No selling things through the Link Party- do not hook up your Etsy shop, or Facebook shop, or eBay account. This is not the forum for that.

This Linky will remain open and accepting links through Wed night, so feel free to come back and add more links if you post new things!!
