It has been a great week here at The CSI project. We had some awesome tutorials that reminded us to be thankful and to prepare our dining room for Thanksgiving dinner.

Our recent guest bloggers have absolutely inspired us with their Thanksgiving projects.  If you missed them earlier, go check out these creative projects:

First, we had pretty Be Thankful frames and a great quote. She even gave us 2 free printables from Crissy’s Crafts.

We also had a wonderful dining room all ready for Thanksgiving dinner from Imperfectly Polished.

Then, we finished off our tutorials with a wonderful Be Thankful frame idea from This Crazy Blessed Life.

Thank you for the  inspiration, ladies! You certainly know how to get us in the thanksgiving/Fall spirit.

When you linkup your Thanksgiving/Fall Projects, you can expect a visit to your blog from this week’s guest judge, Heather of Whipperberry.

Heather will be checking out project and blog entered into the challenge, and choosing her 10 favorites, plus the overall winner of the challenge!  You can read more about Heather Here

In addition to our challenge winners, we have a fun giveaway for you to win, sponsored by  Home for Hire.

The randomly drawn winner of our giveaway will win a $25 shop credit so you can pick out what you want from this cute store.  Each project you enter into the giveaway is an automatic entry.  For additional ways to win, go here.

Please remember that to be eligible to win this week’s challenge and giveaway, you must provide a link back to the challenge in your entry post.  It’s easy–we have a button ready for you to insert into your post HERE.  For additional challenge rules, please read below.

You’ll find the linkup for this week’s challenge at the end of this post, following the challenge rules.  This challenge begins at midnight (MST) Wednesday, November 9th , and ends at noon (MST) Friday, November  11th.

1. All entries for this challenge need to incorporate the challenge’s theme. We are not simply a linky party. We have a specific theme for each week. All submissions are competing to be the judge’s top pick. If your project does not incorporate the theme we will have to remove it.

2. When you enter the challenge, please enter the link to the specific post on your blog that relates to the project — not to your general blog. This will help when a year from now, for example, someone who visits the site can find your project directly.

3. The CSI Project button must be in your blog post. HERE are the buttons. This makes it easy for other people to come over and join in the challenge if they like – and for us to know that we have the correct entry in the challenge when we’re judging. And if you use an older post, please update it so it’s current. If you don’t want to update it, please add the button to that post and to the sidebar for the week of the contest. Thanks!

4. The project you submit must be your own project and something you have made. (It can be inspired by something someone else has done, but it must be your creation.)

5. We ask that you are a CSI follower or subscriber to win the prizes.  The more followers the site has — the more giveaways we are able to host

6. If you enter a project into our challenge, we ask that you please leave comments on at least 2 other entries in the contest. Not only is it nice to do, but it’s a great way to meet new people and make new friends.

7. By entering, you give us permission to spotlight your projects – we will give you credit and link back to your blog. You are welcome to enter as many themed projects as you like! You also give us permission to add your name to our newsletter list. If you wish to unsubscribe you may do so at any time.

The CSI Project have a new Facebook page. Go here to “like” us and join our weekly craft contest. This is a separate contest for your best project of the week. Go ahead and show off!

Also, to make this party more fun. The first 2 people to link up will WIN guest judging spots. Shut the door!!! I know!

So, let’s get on with the party! Happy linking!
