And now for the projects in the Spotlight this week…

Christmas-Feather-clay-sculpey-ceramic-white-ornaments-decoration-tree-holiday-woods-of-bell-trees-5These are so beautiful! Woods of Bell Trees created these feather ornaments from Sculpey clay. I love how unique each one is with the slight wave and bend.

Ribbon-BraceletNot only is this a great project but the entire project and tutorial is done by The DIY Dreamer’s 9-year old daughter. Click over to see this darling project and mini-blogger.

IMGP05661Dixie Chik Cooks shares this amazing Blackened Tilapia with Buffalo Slaw and Mango Salsa. Oh, on a Pretzel Bun. Every single part of this is homemade, the bun, slaw, salsa and Tilapia. I’m impressed.

Go-Coastal-DIY-Wall-Art-Painting-AnExtraordinaryDay.net_An Extraordinary Day created this lovely coastal display but needed some coastal artwork to tie it all together. No problem, she painted the seascape. Wow!!

2It was hard to choose which photo to use of the Laptop and iPad Bag by Gina’s Craft Corner because it has so  much detail and the inside is as beautiful as the outside. Head over for all the pretty pictures.

LBPS1Sugar Swings has a knack for creating beautiful sweet treats with the most expressive little critters. Check out these Jelly Bean Pretzel Snacks. I spy two love birds!!

101_2966Simply Vintagous brings the fairies from the usual fairy garden into this adorable stone house. What a great project this would be for little ones to let their creativity and imaginations fly!

DIY Upholstered Footstool -- The Silly Pearl_thumbThe Silly Pearl remakes a chair and footstool for her mother’s knitting corner. What a lovey gesture and so beautifully done. That footstool fabric is yummy!

Fiesta20140719-14A Fiesta Baby Shower by Lemon Thistle. This was another post where it was hard to pick which photo to share. There are so many great details to this party but I especially love these fiesta drink stirrers.
