Thanksgiving Week's Craftastic Link Party!

Happy Thanksgiving Week Everyone!  I hope you'll have some time to enjoy food, friends and family this week as we celebrate the holiday.  I'd love to see any recipes, decor or projects you have (as well as any other great craft ideas).

It's also time to announce the winner of the Banarsi Designs Home Décor Giveaway:

Congratulations Danya!  You've won a set of Ornamental Embroidered Pillow Covers in your choice of colors.  A big thanks to Banarsi Designs for providing such a fabulous prize:)

Now let's see some of last week's party goodies:

Looking for a fun last-minute Thanksgiving treat idea?  Hungry Happenings shared a recap of some of her best ideas - all in one handy place!
Etcetorize showed fabulous idea for the ideal crafter's Christmas card using buttons - sew cute!!
I loved this recipe for making a single cupcake from Pink Recipe Box.  Just what mom needs for a little pick-me-up!

And the Craftastic Blog of the Week is...

Piggy In Polka Dots is a blog all about some of my favorite things: paper, parties and treats.  Shelley, its creator, shares ways to combine those things to make special days even more fun.  She offers lots of free printables for holidays & parties too - check out her awesome Lego party and fun decorative cookies for some awesome inspiration and behind the scenes how-to info.   Last week she linked her cute idea assembly idea & printable for some "Turkey Bait":
