Thankyou’s for January!

I want to take a few moments to thank all those wonderful websites out there that featured my projects this month and all the awesome readers that stopped by to comment.  The Sitcom drew record numbers this past month and I am so thrilled that this little labor of love seems to be well-liked.  Thank you so much for making that happen.

My Faux Metal Wall Art caused quite a flurry around the internet. It’s funny how a project that I figured wouldn’t get a ton of attention, is now my most popular tutorial of all time. Who knew that a few toilet paper tubes and some tacky glue would create such excitement!  For that, I have to thank the following websites:

One Pretty Thing, Ziggy Crafts, Someday Crafts, Todays Top 20, RHB Designs, Mural Maker and More, Not Just a Housewife, Night Owl Crafting, I’m Topsy Turvy, Young and Crafty, Grin and Barrett, The Speckled Dog, The Other Whitehouse, Copy Cat Crafts, Vintage Pollyanna, This and That, Blue Cricket Design, Dollarstore Crafts, Truly Lovely, Adventures in Crafting, Me Making Do, The Hive, Totally Tutorials, Multicoloured Imagery, Domestically Speaking, Me and My Thrifty Ideas, A World of Crafts, Creating My Way To Success, Hope Studios, C.R.A.F.T., 10, Keeping It Simple, Dittle Dattle, Giggles Glitz and Glam, Sassy Sites, Moms by Heart, Chockfull of Ideas, Soul Artesanal, Sara and Spice, Fine Wining, and Hobbychic.

Carolyn at Homework was inspired to try this technique and created some wonderful plant stakes. Be sure to check them out.

My Faux Stained Glass Peacock using simple glue and paint rather than expensive glass paints, caught the eye of One Pretty Thing, Sew Can Do, Be Colorful, 504 Main, The Hive, Mural Maker and More, Santas Gift Shoppe, Lovely Crafty Home, Totally Tutorials, 11th Heaven’s Homemaker Haven, and Dollar Store Crafts.

Stephanie from made a candle votive using an altered version of this technique.  Rather than using glue and paint for the “leading”, she used a sharpie pen.  They came out great!

Not being the greatest cook in the world, I still can manage something that doesn’t require the oven. My Homemade Conversation Hearts were a hit on Foodwhirl, Ladybug Blessings, Couturier Mommy, Simply Designing, Punkinseed Productions, Remodelaholic, My Craftie Life, Dragonfly Designs, Life with the Lebedas, and Avoiding the Laundry.
Jen, From Mess Hall to Bistro went a whole other direction with this recipe and created wonderful cupcake toppers for a baby shower. What a great idea!

Brandy from Gluesticks turned this into a great project to do with her children and they came up with some wonderful candy hearts to give each other for Valentines day!

My Mosaic Monogram was fortunate to grace the pages of Lovely Crafty Home, One Pretty Thing, Under the Table and Dreaming, Frugal with a Flourish, and The Life of Me.

The Answer is Chocolate was nice enough to do a post on my blog for her Blog Feature Friday.   My buddy Tom Selleck, his mustache and I are in the big times now! 

Thank you so much for a great month!  Please take a few moments to stop by some of these awesome blogs!!
