Top 5 Hits

Fast and fabulous…busy Diane at In my own Style was inspired by her friend, Karen who came up with this Easy Ribbon Holder.
1+2+3 & mine was up in my craft room and I am so delighted after years of tangled ribbon in a drawer.
Thanks Diane and Karen for sharing with me and all of blog land!
Beach Towel Backpacks, sweet and smart Mom, Andrea at The Train To shows us how to make these …
warm and snugly hooded towels. I remember getting my kids to sleep on the beach and having the wind blow the towels off their heads and re-covering them over and over. Thanks Andrea for a winner!
My grand girls would wear one of these everyday…come to think of it, I would too! Hats off to Stef at GIRL . INSPIRED . who gives a tutorial for Party Hats that will delight party divas everywhere.
Oh, how I love parties…and we are all invited!
Katie is celebrating her 24th birthday at Notes from a very red kitchen and she is giving away a pattern and fabric. One lucky party goer who RSVPs can make this adorable Ruby Lou Doll! Best wishes this coming Sunday, Katie…loved your party!
Gift giving is becoming more challenging all the time! Brooke, at Babblings from Brooke created a Graduation Money Lei for her brother, Logan, with dollar bills and candy bars. Judging from their exuberant smiles, it was a big hit…feeling the love all! It’s so much more fun than a check or cash in a card…way to go Brooke…I’m ecstatic too and have two of these to make today…thanks.
Have an inspired weekend all!

    Hi Gnee-

    When I got home from work today and opened your e-mail telling me I made your Top 5 feature – I thought what a nice way to start the weekend. I am going to forward it to My friend, Karen. She will be delighted as well.
    I put your button on my “Featured On” page.
    Thanks so much – you made my day.

    Hope you have a nice weekend.
