The Thanksgiving Challenge!

It’s time for the Thanksgiving Challenge!!

We are so excited to see YOUR Thanksgiving projects, recipes and ideas!!

Reminder of the CSI Guidelines

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 5 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.

(Official rules are available here.)

Jen, Beckie, and Amanda will also choose their favorite projects and award those people with a special button to display on their blogs.

The winner of this week’s challenge will receive this FANTASTIC e-book on Furniture Refinishing {winner chosen via Random.org}.


  1. I can’t believe I actually submitted my Thanksgiving post this week. The last time I was able to participate was back in July! I even won a great craft video with “My Little Backyard Patio” enty. I just love this fun contest, mostly to see all the other creative ideas. I did have trouble getting the CSI Blogger button on my post this time, has the link changed?

  2. Hi there! I entered my faux mercury glass hurricanes, which I’m planning on using on my thanksgiving table, but if they’re not holiday-specific enough for you please feel free to delete them it won’t hurt my feelings 🙂 I just think of mercury glass at this time of year so I thought I’d go ahead and enter it! Thanks!!

  3. Thanks for hosting this- I’m excited to see all of the projects:)

  4. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love finding new ideas. Thanks do much for providing us with all this wonderful inspiration from handmade tables to napkin rings.
    My best- Diane

  6. This is will fun, can’t wait to get more ideas!

  7. Whoopsie on #29 – the winter scene. Please delete that thumbnail. So sorry!

  8. I’m so excited that I was able to link up today! Thanks for hosting!

  9. I tried to add a link but inlinkz freaked out or something, and now it’s totally gone (the entire linky). I’ll try again later.
