Second Weekly Thrifty Gifty Round-up and Linky Party

This week, I presented freezer paper stenciling


Washer necklaces


Making a hat and mittens from a sweater…


And my personal favorite of the week, hand tinted vintage prints.


I decided to do an impromptu mini giveaway today. The prize will be a washer necklace “wardrobe”, which will include a leather cord and two 1” washers with a different decorative paper on each side (so 4 different papers).

For one entry, leave a comment and tell me which Thrifty Gifty out of all 12 is your favorite.

If you join the linky party with a post of your thrifty gift idea, or something you’ve made using one of my ideas, I’ll give you 2 extra entries.

Please follow the linky party rules. If you don’t I will have to delete your link, and that makes me feel like a big meanie. MckLinky will be open until midnight Sunday

  1. use the code on my sidebar (upper right) to put my button in your post
  2. your post must be an inexpensive (let’s say under $10, approximately) DIY gift idea or something you made using one of my ideas
  3. link to your specific post, not your home page

    Infarrantly Creative is having a party too!

    OK - picking a favorite will be hard, but...I love the heat pack, of coarse. That may have something to do with the fact that I have actually made one and used it. But, I also want to make the hat and mittens and the artwork.

    Hey you!
    I am having a hard time choosing my fav. I have a bunch of them sitting in my Inspire Me file waiting to get my hiney in gear and post about them. Okay, here goes. If I have to choose, and I guess I do then it would be the jeweled magnets. So teeny tiny and cute. Love those. I'm thinking of modifying it to do push pins with them.
    Thanks for the inspiration, girlie. I'll try to get those links up by tomorrow.

    The crafts projects that involve frames are my favorites so I like the hand tinted vintage prints idea best. I think you could expand this by making a print of a real photo and tinting it, too. keep those fab ideas coming - I really like 'em all!

    I love a bunch of them! The heat pack, the monogramed vases and the pillows are all favorites of mine! I'm going to try the vases and the heat pack tomorrow! Great blog - just found you this week.
