It’s been a crazy busy week for me with lots and LOTS of major life changes. I’ve been incredibly stressed out and anxiety never works for me, only against me! So I was pretty darn excited when I got an email from Amy at Delineate Your Dwelling. She invited me to participate in the Sunshine Blogger Award and it was a lot of fun to participate. Thanks a bunch for thinking of me, Amy! Rather than bore you all with my interview here, I made a separate page for it… So head on over if you’re interested in learning a little bit about me and seeing who I nominated in turn!
Also, if you’re in the Oklahoma City area, I’m going to be appearing at Michael’s on North May for the Michael’s Pin It Party. I’ll be showing off how to use some super great iLoveToCreate products. I love the set up of this event, you’ll bring your iLoveToCreate and crafty products to the store (or buy them there) and we can craft together OR if you’re having trouble with a particular project or product we can work out the kinks together! I hope to see you there between 1-4 today! (P.S. I’m bringing a boatload of shoes to makeover while I’m there!)
Now let’s get this awesome link party started, shall we?
I had a terrible time picking my favorites. Seriously awful. Why do you all have to submit such awesome things? In the end I chose my favorite handful and am sharing them here. I hope you love them as much as I do!
These glitter jars from Happy House and Home are so amazing, aren’t they? The perfect glitzy accent for any autumn decor and I am in LOVE with the gold but can also see gorgeous bronze, and copper and silver jars, too! Check out the post which bore these sweet little beauties and check out Julia’s other posts for affordable projects and a great sense of humor! Oh, and learn a new winter word, too!
Two of my favorite deserts are German chocolate cake and pecan pie. When you cross the two together, as Cara at Craft Dictator amazingly has, you get a beautiful, amazingly tasty looking desert (and maybe a spare tire if you have no self control like me?) Head on over to check out this decadent desert bar recipe: German Chocolate-Pecan Pie Bars that’ll make you wanna drool and wish you could just reach into your screen and grab one. Fair warning for all of y’all out there who can’t have gluten (like me)… these are not gluten free but I fully intend to experiment and if I can find an acceptable GF substitute I’ll let you know!
Do you or someone you know love Star Wars? Take a cue from Our Nerd Home and make them their very own Death Star. Wait, it’s not just any Death Star, it’s freakin’ DISCO Death Star!! Tutorial is super easy to follow and I think the results are stunning! I’m thinking that some smaller ones would make excellent Christmas ornaments for my nephews’ tree! This whole blog is worth a total check out for anything and everything geek chic!
I more often than not prefer granny squares of different colors and I’ve long been meaning to make myself a granny square scarf but I just haven’t. This beauty from Julia at Sum of their Stories is amazing and I love every little detail, especially the fun and wild colors. Check out the post for even more photos and lots of other great yarn projects!
First off, how cute is the name Sparkle Side Up? Totally adorable, right? But moving on, I think that this Link, Legend of Zelda Felt Wall Hanging is so neat. The project took 6 weeks of evenings to complete and while she didn’t top stitch it, I think that actually works in favor of the project. It reminds me of an artistic stained glass window and I just can’t say enough stuff about how neat it is! Head on over to check out lots of other
First off, I love the name of this project from Crafty Journal – this little fella’ is a turkey trot. This project requires the most basic craft supplies, all of which you could very well already have on hand. I can see this being an excellent project for the kids and I must admit, I’d totally dig having these guys popping up in sporadically around my house!
I’ve just recently realized that beads can be used in ways other than on a string. I must admit when you see a craft item in a whole new light it’s pretty darn amazing. But Omo from KoltureShoq is already down with that program! She used seed beads in fun, striking colors to update an old necklace and I’m a huge fan of the results. Head on over to check out Omo’s blog and leave her a comment or two. She’s a new blogger so head on over there to share a bit of support!

I LOVE peanut butter. I love it, love it, love it in spite of the fact that I don’t like peanuts. Weird, huh? But when I clicked on the link to head on over to Make It or Fix It and saw that Sharon was sharing a recipe for homemade peanut butter I just about wigged. This looks so tasty and fresh and if you have problems with high blood pressure you can have sodium free peanut butter. The recipe is super simple and I cannot wait to make my own. Because I’m gonna. And hopefully I don’t sit there and it it all with a spoon like a PB fiend, but maybe I will.
Now that you’ve seen my favorites… Head on over to Two It Yourself to see what Melissa chose as her favorites this week!

The RULES – does anybody actually read these? Hmmm:
- Link anything you made yourself but nothing that is available for sale. (you don’t have to have a blog or site just leave that bit empty or link up your Facebook profile, etc.)
- Link back to Dream a Little Bigger to be considered for next week’s feature roundup! (you can grab that awesome button up there – hubba hubba!)
- Click through one or two of your favorite links and leave some comment love!
- Entries are randomly placed so that everyone gets top billing. I HATE when I get to a party late and my links get stuck somewhere in the middle! Well, that’s not gonna happen here, folks!
