Gettin’ Krafty With It

My week is starting off pretty good but I am so tired of seeing cloudy skies and rain!  I know a lot of the country is in a drought but here in the South, we have been getting drenched!  I can’t wait for some fall weather and dryer air!  Speaking of fall, this 
Gimme Five For Friday’s theme will be Fall Wreaths.  You are welcome to come by Friday and link up yours.  This will probably be the last one that includes a linkup.  There just hasn’t been enough participation.  However, I will still share my own list of five things on Friday with you and this party will still go on.

So, let’s get on with it!  Here are the features from last week:

Reclaimed trash blackboard Homa Style

Homa Style transformed an old chair back into a stylish chalkboard.  A true trash to treasure!

Lunchbox Love Notes Free Download
One Creative Mommy shares her free printable lunchbox love notes – aren’t they adorable?

Twiggs Studios shared a fun tutorial on how to design your own fabric using your own artwork!  So fun…and so many possibilities! 

Frugal Ain’t Cheap showcased her friend’s Franklin, TN home and demonstrated how he maximized his space and budget with a little creativity.  Here he has used mirrors inside of mirrors to add light, space, and lots of interest to a corner of his home.

Second Chance To Dream shared a cornucopia of first day of school photo opportunites! So many fun ideas!  I can’t believe my camera battery died and I didn’t get to try any of these!

If you were featured, grab this button!  Don't forget, I'll be givin' you shout outs all over the internet:  Google+, Facebook, Twitter, & Pinterest cause I'm cool like that!

Featured At Krafty Kat
There were lots of fun posts last week, I really enjoyed them all!  With everything that you do, you really are such a blessing to your family and to others!  If this is your first time to the party, I hope you’ll consider becoming a follower, so you don’t miss anything!  I don’t have a lot of rules for this party – anything goes (nothing obscene, of course)!  You can include this button on your blog or link back with a text link, if you’d like! 

Gettin' Krafty With It

I read something at another blogger’s party and I want to share it with you: she asked , “Why bother linking and leaving?”.  There really is no reason to do that!  If you blog, you know how great it is to meet new people and have them leave you comments!  We L.O.V.E. comments!  So, while you’re linking up (do this for yourself and your blog), say hello to someone new and leave them a comment!
