This week was the first time my little link party passed 200 link ups! You have no idea how excited I am. I haven't gone through every link yet, but here are some that have really caught my eye so far:

There are more features to come, and the party doesn't end until Saturday, so there is still time to link up your projects. If you were featured, don't forget your brag button!

My New Beanie Obsession

Cold weather is approaching and I have gone beanie crazy. In the last week I have made a beanie for myself and each of my children. The only one left is my hubby. I'm thinking of making him a beanie with a BIG embroidered Mac symbol. Muahahaha! (There is an ongoing war in our house: Mac vs. PC. I'm a Mac, baby).

Here are the results of my latest obsession. Do you think it would be too much to make one for the dog??

Sam rockin' the owl beanie

When I made this for Dax he yelled, "Curse you Perry the Platypus beanie!!"

My little Philly in his new Jack Skellington hat

My girly beanie. It is puffy at the top for less "hat hair".

What is your latest obsession?

Recycled Halloween Crayons

Halloween is quickly approaching and I have the honor of being in charge of the Halloween party for my daughter's kindergarten class. For party favors I decided to make spooky crayons using my Halloween cookie mold.
I used my 40% off coupon at Michael's and got this for 6 bucks!!

Arrange the never-ending supply of broken crayons.

Bake in the oven at 250 for 5 to 7 minutes. Keep an eye on them! Once the crayons have flattened remove them immediately.

Place them in the fridge or freezer to cool and pop them out of the mold.

Aren't these cute?? I am planning to wrap them in orange and black tulle for the party. I can't wait!

Happy Crafting!
