Crush of the Week & April Giveaway Winners!

Happy Friday!!

Did you all have a fabulous week? I did but I have a Creative Estates hangover. (the tired kind of hangover.)
I still need a bit of recovery. ;)

Oh – are you here to see who won the April Follower Giveaway?? Well – you have to wait. It’s at the end. But don’t rush. You’ll miss the coolness that is the Crush of the Week!
I’m so excited to show you some of the fun projects that were linked up to Think Pink Sunday this week!!

How much do you love this little guy and his new sign?? Tai from Taidye Originals linked up this Tool Sign her sister made for her son – from real tools!!
This is so fun and creative.

I realllly need these Boho Chic Lace bangles that Hannah from Rubies and Pearls made. I love the combination of the wood and the lace!
I have the lace – now I just need to hunt up some wood bangles!!

Midwestern Sewing Girl made this fabulous Springtime Ruffle Pillow. This needs to be on my couch. I have just the spot for it.
I love the linen and the ruffles and the raw edges – plus she has a super-clear tutorial!! Great job Maggie!!

Hi. It’s my birthday in two weeks. Will you make this cake for me? Please? Thanks.
It’s a Strawberry Champagne Ruffle Cake made by What’s Up Cupcake? (How cute is that blog name?)
Champagne and strawberries? In a cake? Um. Duh.

Last up is another fabulous project by the amazing Anj over at Snowy Bliss.
(I should make her a shirt that says The Amazing Anj!!! I’m sure she’d love that.)
She made the cutest ever Picnic Easter baskets – complete with little silverware holders and ruffles and lots of adorableness. See?

Well you guys are on a roll! Every week Think Pink gets better and better!! Thank you for being so awesome and linking up!

Ok – ready for some winners?

#287 – Rene’, who said, “I follow you on Twitter!”
#11 – Dulce, who said, “Happy Blogiversary!! You are sooo talented! I loved the Anthro Cameo Collage Necklace Knockoff. I’ve been wanting to make it myself but there are so many charms I want to get and only a bit of money :[ I was thinking f making it as a charm bracelet in gold and a vintage feel. I follow you through twitter, facebook, google and email. :]”

#133 – Nelly, who said, “oh dear! i would def choose one of those AMAZING necklaces! i follow through GFC, e-mails and fb! thanks! nelly dot barney at yahoo dot com”

Now I know some of you were interested in the grand prize and not so much a necklace kit – and that’s ok. If you don’t want the runner up prize, it won’t hurt my feelings. ;)
And I also realize that some of you might not be interested in a necklace KIT. So I’m changing the runner up prize – you can choose either the kit for the Potentilla Necklace, or a finished Potentilla necklace.
I’ll give you all the details in your winner’s email!

Congrats to you all!!
I wish I could send you all something! I so appreciate you all following along here!

    Congrats to the winners! If someone doesn’t want their kit, I DO! :) I swear, that’s my all-time, absolute favorite of all the necklaces you’ve done. And, um, I’m too lazy to get the materials myself. ;)

    And I’ll make you a shirt that says “Bev’s the BEST’!
    But really you are!!! Thank you so much!
    (And I’m kinda crazy jealous of your fantastic creative estates experience. I’ve never been to a blog conference… I’m secretly a tad frightened of them, but I’m wishing I had gone. It looked like so much fun)!
