Just wanted to mention the So You Think You're Crafty challenge. There are some awesome entries, and the winning entry will publish a tutorial for us all! Yeeha! This goes on for ten weeks. Love it. Check it out and vote for your favorite.
While perusing the challenge, I've seen some of my favorite crafty bloggers, of course, but I've also discovered new soon to be favorites, I'm sure. For instance, check out Homemade by Jill, specifically her incredible, not-quite-edible felt food. I have to make some of this for H for Christmas. He loves playing restaurant, and we could incorporate reading, writing, and counting skills using a "menu," taking orders, making change for play money. Aieee! My mind is racing. She also has templates for a quiet book, felt playhouse, the list goes on!
