Wednesday's Features

I'm working on responding to each and every comment/email you all have sent me about Gabe's Gifts.  Thank you so much!  I appreciate it so much!!
Don't forget to enter the giveaways here and here!
Sew This:
I can’t remember if I’ve posted this before.  But if I have.  It’s totally worth looking at twice.  The Cottage Home has the pattern for this Adorable party dress up on her site. 

I saw one of these in Lillian Vernon’s catalog.  I’ve wanted one ever since.  I was so excited when I saw Sassafrass Style posted this tutorial for the magnetic ironing board!!
I saw these completed black apple dolls over at Grey Luster -  aren’t they adorable?  She got the pattern from Martha Stewart’s site here.
I have a love for Anthropologie.  I also have a love for pillows.  But I have an even bigger love for Anthro pillow knock offs.  Didn’t Sew Homegrown do a great job?

Simply Modern Mom posted this tutorial for a reversible hobo bag! 
Craft This:
I love this!  I just glued candy hearts to a ball – but I wish I would have made it a topiary instead!  How pretty! :) {Mine for the Making}
Amy over at the Idea Room made this sweet little sign.  She’s simply talented! {Did you know one of her projects is going to be in the next issue of Family Fun!  Congrats Amy – that’s so exciting!}
Our Seven Dwarfs made bath paints!  I love this idea.  My son’ s going to be excited for bath time tonight!
Just a Geek named Jess made these AWESOME comic book shoes.  I love them.  I wish I could make a boys pair!
I love specimen art.  And the hearts are way cute.  And would look perfect up on my wall.  {Embellishing Life}
Print This:
She’s Kinda Crafty has these uber cute Valentine’s Day banner for you!
I’m loving the Robot printables from Bnute.  Josh loves robots.  I wanted to do his room in robots (Land Of Nod has the cutest stuff) but Mario won out.  Thanks Nintendo.
 Colors Image
Speaking of Land of Nod Sprik Space created these ABC knock offs…in a ton of colors (that's just half of them!)

Need a Valentine’s Day poster?  And It is What it Is shows you how awesome it looks a million other ways!
And we all need subway art.  For every holiday (and as Kojo proved even to do lists are worth of subway art!)  This one is from Today's Fabulous Finds.
Eat This:
This chick Cooks made yummy honey wheat bagels.  I love bagels.  So let’s make em a little healthy!
It’s always a party at the Parkers has this cute football party up on their site.  If your looking for Super Bowl party set up ideas – head on over! {I love the cupcake wrappers!}
Don’t these PB parfaits look amazing?  They are from Inside BruCrew Life!
Oopsey Daisy shows you a yummy looking brownie!
How does pomegranate chocolate chip cheesecake with cranberry drizzle sound? {I told you...over 5 words and it has to be good!} {{Rae Gun Ramblings}}
And guess what?  We have a new sponsor! My Vinyl Designer is going to sponsor our Blogger of the Month each month!  The winner of the Blogger of the Month will recieve a special prize valued at $60!! More details will be coming soon!! But in the mean time ... go swoon over all of their stuff! :)
