Crush of the Week Returns!

Hey all – I’m so thrilled that the Crush of the Week is back!

I’m adding a twist to the Crush of the Week this year! There is so much inspiration out there – I mean seriously – seems like every week I see projects that just amaze me.
So I’m going to focus on multiple ideas each week – to show off a little more of the awesomeness that is out there!

So to start the year off with a bang – check out these AMAZING Burlap and Doily Luminaries from Crafts by Amanda!

I love the combination of the doilies paired with the ribbons and burlap. And they are perfect for winter and Valentine’s Day -they look like pretty romantic snowflakes!

Rook No. 17 has a recipe that looks fantastic – Valentine’s Day Profiteroles.

I had no idea that making cream filled pastries was so easy – I’m definitely going to give them a try!
Jenn’s also started up a new weekly linky party on Tuesdays – yay! More parties! ;)

Bree from My Crafty Crap is doing a great Sew Along! This year she is working through Amy Butler’s Style Stitches book – and we can Sew Along with her!


She is inviting everyone to join in the fun, you can sew along with the Bag of the Month whenever you can! Check in with Bree (who is super sweet by the way) and find out how it all works!

Care from Obsessively Stitching shared her tutorial  for these super cute Cupcake Pincushions at Dollar Store Crafts.

You can find the tutorial for the small version – which is a ring pincushion – on Obsessively Stitching.
While you’re there – take a look around! Care is amazing – her quilts are gorgeous and she made a whole Angry Birds series that was hilarious!

I think I’m going to start a pincushion collection. I have a weakness for them.
(Insert Mr. F.T.’s eye-roll here.)

Great projects right? Love them! If you were featured and would like a button – here’s a new fancy one!

Check back tomorrow for the announcement of the January Follower Giveaway! Woohoo!

    Thanks for linking to my pincushions!

    …and now I am craving some cream puffs — and heart shaped? even better!!

  • Bev, I feel so honored to be part of another Crush of the Week. I (heart) YOU! I’m excited to visit your other crushes and check out their incredible projects. You have such a great eye for quality and talent (probably because you ARE quality and HAVE talent). I’m also looking forward to the sew-along. Sewing is definitely an area of my life that has been sorely neglected.
