BFF Wrap Up and Blogiversary Giveaway Winner!!

Thanks everyone for your well wishes and linking up such fantastic projects to my first weekly "BFF" link party! The hardest part of hosting a link party is choosing features because I love looking at every link but here goes!

You will not believe the cost of this  fantastic chair makeover by Maggie at Midwestern Sewing Girl:
I just love this family heirloom wreath by Holly over at 504 Main!
And I never, ever find anything on the curbside that could be transformed into something like this great table. You need to see the before and after over at jandjhome:
Those are just a few of the great projects that were linked up but all are worth a visit so I hope you'll check them out!

This week, I was celebrating my one year anniversary of blogging and included a giveaway! The lucky winner is:  Stephanie from the blog Still Waters!

Congrats Stephanie! For those featured, please feel free to grab a button from my sidebar:

Blog Feature Friday Link Party #1

I’m so excited! It's time to launch my WEEKLY link party combined with one of my favorite parts of blogging: Blog Feature Friday. If you’re a newer chocoholic here at TAIC, I’ve been doing a monthly Open House link party and a weekly series featuring a “BFF” …Blog Feature Friday. As I celebrated my one year anniversary of blogging, I decided to combine them.

First up, this week’s BFF: Amy from Ameroonie Designs.

In addition to being just a total sweetheart, Amy is a talented creator of so many things, not the least of which are her amazing bags and accessories…something yours truly was so lucky to recently win! YAY!
Channeling my inner 2 year old: MINE MINE MINE
Gorgeous! And she makes these! But that’s not all she makes. Too many treasures to feature but look at these adorable Teacher Appreciation gifts:
“Bloom Pencil Bouquets”.

Practical, thoughtful and pretty. My kind of project. But in addition to being a talented creator and a busy wife, and mom of four, she’s also an inspiring writer. She wrote a post on her recent “Creative Estates” experience that just resonated with me SO much  I had to include it as a feature. I would encourage you to read it:
Lessons I learned from Creative Estates
Definitely go visit Amy and show her some bloggy love! Now, on to the party details! Link up…everything! Provided you made it…no selling or Etsy shops please. Cards, Scrapbooking, Mixed Media…link it. DIY, Re-purposed, upcycled, thrifty score…link it. Jewelry, clothing, accessories…link it. Recipes, ESPECIALLY chocolate…link it! Please make sure you link to your specific post and not your main blog page.

Oh yeah…GIVEAWAY!!!! To celebrate my one year blogi-bloga-however you spell it versary….I’m giving away a few of my favorite things! Me and Oprah. No cars though. 

I’ve gotten lots of comments on altered candle projects I’ve done , so the winner will get:
Altered Key Candle

But I also wanted to share some of my fave fave things  I’ve used in other projects. In addition to the candle, the winner will get:
