Blogger of the Month Link Up! (And prizes!)

January is over.  Can you believe it?! 

It's time for Blogger of the Month! Go and chose your favorite project you've made in January and come link it up!  Then my fabulous guest judges and I will chose our favorite top 10.  On Thursday I will create a poll for everyone to vote on their favorite. 

What does the winner get?

1 month advertising here at Today's Top 20

1 blog highlight post

and probably the best prize -- My Vinyl Designer has graciously donated their Stick Figure Plus CD (a $59.95 value!!) With their designs, you can print cards, cut vinyl, embroider, make scrapbook pages, etch glass, and SO much more.  The designs also work on crafting machines like the Silohuette, Cricut, Craft Robo, etc.  We haven't found a software yet that cannot use one of our formats. The designs are like patterns that you can use over and over again.  It's all quite fun!

The possibilites are endless for this!

Let's meet the judges. 

First off Megs from This & That Creative.
 Since I was little, I have loved to create things. I owe much of this to my mom, who could be constantly found sewing or working on projects. She encouraged me to make things even when they didn't turn out perfect, and I think that is why I felt comfortable venturing more into the world of creativity. I graduated with a degree in art and English and love drawing & painting, photographing people and landscapes, being a mom, trying new things, making homemade gifts, writing, reading, enjoying beautiful scenery, surprises, figuring out how to do things, and of course blogging and party planning! I owe a lot of credit for my skills in creative blogging to my husband who makes websites for a living and has helped my creativity come to life. I think everyone should be able to make their blogs & parties creatively customized to them, and I'm here to help you along the way!

Next, the fabulous ladies from Thread This Fabric!

We are two stay-at-home moms, Brittany and Amanda, who love fabric! We started our shop because we would drool over all the pretty fabrics at the specialty stores. Thats when we came up with this crazy idea to sell it ourselves so that others, like us, could purchase beautiful fabric at a fair price! Thus, ThreadThisFabric was born! We sometimes dip into the pile to create things for our children.....how can we help it!? The fabric is just so gorgeous! We are so excited to be asked to judge the Blogger of the Month contest! Can't wait to see all the creative things you guys come up with! 

And finally....

Yes.  My son is a guest judge.  This is bribery at it's best people. :) He's actually really excited.  And you don't get much more honest than a 7 1/2 year old judging crafts!

Alright let's play!  Link up your favorite project you've made.  Leave a comment with your e-mail address so we can easily e-mail the top 10!  The links will only be open today and tomorrow so link up! :) And make sure to come back to vote!
