I've been letting my favorite Facebook submissions pile up again, so prepare for a full frontal assault of reader awesomeness.
First, Siobhan took my Christmas light jewelry tutorial to steamy new heights, and it is soooo pretty:
LOVE that copper wire! And check out the tiny beads!
More Christmasy stuff, since I can't wait another 10 months to show you Erin's incredible Harry Potter tree:
You should check out Erin's blog for the full tree run-down, but for now here's a peek at my favorite part: her hand-drawn Marauder's Map tree skirt:
hnnnnnnnng. So good.
Amber used my book corner framing tutorial to decorate a whole wall:
Aw yeah, lookin' good, Amber!
(And I spy our favorite Toothless!)
Jordan shared one of the prettiest pin displays I've seen:
That scrapbook paper is PERFECT, am I right? It looks tailor made for displaying pins! And I like that Jordan left some frames empty, so it doesn't feel too cluttered.
Oooh, you guys, my obsession with steampunk helped inspire another wedding theme! And I am SO PROUD:
Now hold on to your hat and goggles, folks, because LOOK AT THE SKIRT RICHA MADE:
I... I just want to hug it. Is that weird?
Here's Richa with her dapper new hubby:
And I like their favor bottles so much I want to make some just for fun:
That metallic name plate! Where/how, Richa? I MUST KNOW.
Head over to this slideshow for lots of Richa's dress process photos and more stunning wedding pics.
And finally, for those in the mood for a long read, here's an interesting article Susan shared:
Susan made the mistake of asking for my thoughts on the matter [:D], and since you guys KNOW how passionate I am about conventions, she got the long-winded version of them:
I almost didn't include this, but I think it's a great discussion to open up - and I'll take any opportunity to encourage fellow geeks to go to a convention. If I sound a bit harsh in my thoughts up there, it's only because I don't want anything scaring off convention newbies from trying one. There's just too much to be gained from going and seeing for yourself.
Hey look, I'm getting long-winded again. SHOCKER. ;)
