  11. Wow! Thank you for featuring my Fourth Of July wreath. Lots of great projects linked up. I am totally in love with that red and white Upholstered Chair.

  12. Thank you so very much to Amanda for making my outdoor pillows her pick this week! I am thrilled!

    That closet nook was, by far, my favorite project, too. A great overall winner!

  13. These really are fabulous projects! It’s a little bit of a downer, though, that some of the ones featured have already been featured on several other blogs this week. I’d love to see some “lesser known” blogs highlighted, but I know that’s near impossible for you all to figure out. It was such a fun party! 🙂

    Thank you SO much for featuring my flag toothpick wreath! I couldn’t be more excited to be in the CSI Top Ten for this challenge! I’m new to crafts, and this is my first time entering a challenge. What an honor! There are some really crafty ladies out there, and I can’t wait to try some of the other craft ideas! Happy 4th of July!
