A Crafty Soiree #107 & A You Can Make This GIveaway!

Hi Friends!  Thanks so much for coming by for Week 2 of our September Celebration! We're so glad you're here and eager to see what you've been working on.  This time we've got a  fabulous giveaway for you from our friends at You Can Make This, your one stop shop for all kinds of beautiful patterns and eguides to help you make amazing projects every time! 

Each eguide comes with lots of photographs and tips to ensure your end result is one to rave about.  I recently made a #1 First Birthday Shirt for my son and no one could believe I made it myself.  Everyone thought it was from a fancy boutique and it was great being able to make exactly what I wanted and customize it for our party theme.
Our giveaway package includes each of the following patterns and is worth over $20!  Each one will help you beautify your home, carry the cutest bag, and turn a special little girl into a princess.  They will also give you plenty of design options so you can use it over and over and get a completely different look each time. 

I am seriously regretting buying custom pillows a few years ago.  If I'd had the Posh Pillows pattern I could've saved myself hundreds of dollars.  Seriously, you would not believe how much money I wasted on those things and they were basic pillows without any of the super fun embellishments like these!
I especially like how the Princess Dress Sewing Pattern not only makes a Snow White inspired look but with a change of colors also a Rapunzel. 
I'm quite the handbag junkie so being able to make my own gorgeous bags is something that really gets me excited!  I love the detail on the Easy Cathedral Style Tote and how you can combine several fabrics.

Please use Rafflecopter below to enter for a chance to win this fabulous Pattern Pack from You Can Make ThisSubscribers may need to click over to see the entry box.
On the edge of your seat wondering who won last week's $75 Gift Certificate to Shabby Apple?  Wait no longer!  Congratulations Chris Savage!  Malia has emailed you, but we're waiting to hear back so please contact us ASAP! 

Now let's check out some of your DIY!  Here are this week's featured projects!

I love the idea of a crochet necklace because sometimes the beads and chains irritate my daughter's neck and make a lot of noise when she's running around.  This would be much softer and while I don't usually point out etsy listings, I noticed this Romantic Crochet Brooch on Maya's side bar and couldn't stop thinking how cute it would look pinned on my fall coats.  It keeps calling my name...

Kristie made her own stylish star burst mirror and not only does it look great, doesn't it look fabulous against those striped walls?  I love her whole room, that gray and yellow look so modern and hip!

Fall has officially arrived all across bloggerland and so have the pumpkin recipes!  I seem to be the only person on earth who doesn't like pumpkin pie but I loved it in baked goods and in pancakes...why yes, please!  I think these are going to made for our next pancake Sunday...and that might have to be this weekend!

Other signs of the season are, well...this sign :)   Couldn't resist.  Really like the sanded background and the cute vinyl she used for Welcome and the apple O.

Okay one more fall project, I just can't get enough.  Fell for these amazing wood block letters, done with a twist!  It looks like my hubby Brad's gonna have to get out the saw and cut up some of our wood scraps from the basement redo we're working on.  My mantle needs a set of these!
