Time to link up Kid’s Holiday Crafts


It has been a great week here at The CSI project. We had some awesome tutorials that have shown us how to craft with the kiddos this holiday season. These projects will keep them busy even during those snowed in kind of days.  Hopefully, keeping them busy so they won’t do this:

Very funny scene from, “A Christmas Story.”

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

First, we had cute and fun  Wishing Chair from Cleverly Inspired. You have to see how cute  this turned out.

We also had a wonderful Kid Art Canvas  idea from Chameleon Girls.

Then, we finished off our tutorials with a very creative Painted Burlap Christmas Tree  from Cherished Bliss.

Thank you for the inspiration, ladies! You certainly know how to inspire all of us.

When you linkup your Kid’s Holiday Crafts, you can expect a visit to your blog from this week’s guest Amy, from The Idea Room.


She  will be checking out all your projects entered into the challenge, and choosing her top 10 favorites, plus the overall winner of the challenge! You can read more about Amy, here.

In addition to our challenge winners, we have a fun giveaway for you to win, sponsored by Heather Myers Graphic Designs.

The randomly drawn winner of our giveaway will win:

$30 Value of Holiday Card Designs

You can find her designs here and more information on ordering.
Note: The cards can be printed at Costco or any printer (printing not included in the giveaway, but she does offer printing services as well).
Heather will customize the design of your choice with a photo and greeting and provide the winner with a JPEG or PDF.

 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 7 pm(MST) Wednesday, November 30th , and ends at noon (MST) Friday, December 2nd.

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, go here  to learn how you can be involved in Giraffe Grins, a CSI Project charity.

And to have some more fun, the first person to link up will have the choice to provide a tutorial on the blog or be a guest judge!

So, Ready, steady….GO!

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

    Hello are you using Typo3 for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own.
    Do you require any html coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

    When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added
    I get four emails with the same comment. There has to be a
    way you are able to remove me from that service?

    You touch on this much more clearly than I ever
    could – probably why I don’t have a blog!

    This has made me consider if there’s a few areas I could do things in a more focused way.

    Thus, if hydroquinone is not a good option with acne scars removal,
    what are other choices. Terminologically the
    correct choices for you are natural acne marks
    treatments. See, as they have many advantages on other acne
    scars medications. They are inexpensive than others. And they do not have negative effects like hydroquinone has.
    This is a big benefit because you never would like a solution that
    on one hand is trying to cure one problem of yours and
    on the other hand threatens to provide one more problem.
    Also such natural solutions for acne marks are very quick and beneficial would give you benefits
    in weeks. Urine therapy is one such medication. It is very beneficial,
    all you need is apply your morning pee with some cotton on the
    scars. Well, I see it would be bit difficult for many of you
    to try it. Therefore, we have got some feasible acne scars removal
    choices. Check out the link put up here.

    Cool idea. We designed a baby bedroom previous month. It turned out pretty well.
