Weekend Craft Soiree {38}

Happy Saturday, Lovelies! I hope you have lots of fun plans for this beautiful weekend! :) First off, I have a little announcement. You may have already heard, but I just wanted to take a moment and fill you in just in case you haven't. :) Did you hear that Google Friend Connect is going away soon?! It will end this month for non-Blogger blogs, and will eventually be gone altogether! If you look over on the right side you will now see the option of following with Linky Followers! I actually think it is going to be so much better than GFC! There are so many more options to sort out the blogs you follow into categories, etc! I would love for all you to take a sec and start following me through Linky Followers and/or subscribe via RSS feed! Please let me know and I will follow you back! I would hate to lose contact with you all! :) 

Y'all have been SO amazing lately! Well, you are already amazing, but all of these projects lately have just been EXTRAordinary! Here are a few highlights from last weekend! 

Katie at Creatively Living has done a spectacular job on her Reading Nook Project! You won't believe how this space looked a few short weeks ago! Here she shares her Reading Nook Curtain Tutorial. I don't know about you, but this makes me really, really want to create a reading nook of my own! 

And look what a fantastic job Kelley at Miss Information did creating this Shipping Pallet Towel Rack for her boys' bathroom! I just love it! 

Cassity at Remodelaholic used a pallet to Frame in A Wall Mount Television!!! This is absolutely brilliant! I love the contrasted look of the old pallet with the new "high tech" tv! She shares a great, easy to follow tutorial, too! 

Here is another fabulous pallet project! Kristi at I Should Be Mopping the Floor used a pallet to create this beautiful Pallet HeART!!! 

Melissa at Shabby Love did a wonderful job on this pretty Rustic Heart Wreath! Is this adorable or what?! 

Look how ADORABLE these Baby Boots are!!! Rose at A Rosie Sweet Home shared a fabulous So Stinkin' Cute Baby Boots tutorial

Thank you all SO much for stopping by and sharing your fantastic projects!
I hope you made a few new friends while you were here!
