We have some awesome features this week! Ready to see what I’m crushing on?
First up is this ADORABLE Ruffled clutch by Charlie at Attempting Aloha.
She has a great tutorial for the clutch - and she printed the fabric for the ruffles herself on her printer. LOVE!
Amanda from Kaleidoscope of Colors made this gorgeous “Easy as Layer Cake” Quilt! She says it’s super fast to put together.
I love how it turned out!
This Beaded Ribbon Necklace from Whitney at Grassroots Elegance is sooo pretty!! I love the ribbon and beads she used – and she has a super clear tutorial for you too!
How fun is this giant Letterpress Stamp by Michele at The Scrap Shoppe?? It’s so great – she did a fabulous job with the painting – it looks like old metal!!
I think I need one of these. Bad.
These Yarn Wrapped “BOO” letters from Bonnie and Trish at Uncommon are so cute!!
They make me smile. :) <—- me smiling
I love the wire-y little bats they added – I think they are the perfect touch!!
Holy cuteness – check out these Fruit Bibs from Jen at My Own Road.
Seriously? That little half slice of fruit?? Sigh. Sooooo adorable.
Wow – you guys make it harder every week!! Before too long this Crush of the Week post is going to be 80 features long!! :)
Thanks for linking up!! If you were featured and would like a button – they’re on the sidebar!!
Ready for some Highlights of the Week??
We had Birthday-o-rama this week!
My Mom’s birthday was Monday (Yay Mom!) and my son’s birthday was Wednesday.
If you follow along on Facebook you know that we ate Key Lime Cheesecake and Burned Ribs. We only throw exciting parties around here. (Remind me to tell you about our cake adventures sometime.)
Somehow overnight my baby turned into a funny, tall, creative, crazy 16 YEAR OLD. SoCal Drivers – be afraid. Very afraid.
SoCal Social is in One Week!!
Have you bought your tickets? Come on – you don’t have to be from Southern California. I’m getting a hotel for the night – and I live 45 minutes away. You can drive from Arizona. Or Chicago. (hint hint Rebecca) ;)
The Sponsors are amazing, the Swag is ridiculous, the Giveaways are awesome, and we are going to have So Much Fun. Register. Today.
Next week is devoted to final details like centerpieces, nametag necklaces (you didn’t think we would hand out ordinary old nametags did you??) and craziness. I’m so excited!
Weird Searches for the Week!
This week we had, “clint eastwood feeling lucky punk“. Well. Bet you didn’t know Dirty Harry was a closet crafter. He is. That movie was originally shot with him holding a glue gun. And if you’ve had a glue gun burn (and who hasn’t) you know that’s not an idle threat.
(this is going to make Mr. F.T. roll his eyes at me. You wait.)
We also had “toes sewed together“. Um. Yes. This is a creative blog. And I do love to sew. But I have to draw the line somewhere. This is a good spot.
Well – I’ll leave you with that image in your head.
Make sure you come back for Think Pink Sunday!! I can’t wait to see what you made this week!
Also - if you haven’t entered the giveaway for the $30 credit to The Spotted Umbrella – pop over. It’s closing Saturday Morning!!
