Now let's see what pretties got linked up last week:

I LOVE the silver sheen on this robot cake made by I'm Topsy Turvy.  My kids would go crazy for this super cool cake.


This trash to treasure play kitchen redo by All Things Luci Rae just proves how some crafty skills can transform a diamond in the rough to a knock out.  Check out the before and be amazed!


Look at this lovely Tree of Life ornament from Lisa's Craft Blog.  She has a full tutorial so you can make one of these for yourself:


Of course I always love a good sewing project too, and Craft Couture by T.C. shared this adorable one - a Christmas pillow cover:


And this week's Kids Can Craft Party's "Pick of the Week" was Happy Whimsical Hearts flower paint project.  All natural AND fun!
