  4. These guides look great, thanks for the chance to add one of my items!

  5. Hi there,
    I linked to my heart bobby pins. I also linked to a lovely grey necklace by sometimesiswirl. Sorry if I put the wrong name on it. Tried to go back and edit. Anyway, it's a beautiful necklace.
    I'll be back to check other other peoples' links.

  6. I'm having a hard time seeing the captions to the photos...the color is just too light on white. THink you could darken it up some? thanks
    THis is a great way to showcase ideas for these last weeks of count down...I'm always on the prowl for another idea and quick craft.

  7. Great idea! I added the christmas garland from my shop and the green star urchin ornament from kissadesign.

  8. this is so fun! I posted a garland from my shop and a cute elf card from ColorBoxDesign :)

  9. What a great resource! I can't wait to find some wonderful, handmade Christmas goodies!

  10. I posted one of my necklaces, and a sterling silver ring with butterfly wings inlaid that I really admire.

  11. I can't get the link to work for me.
    I see my name there but no photo.
    I also don't see how to add the photo from someone else's shop.

  12. looks great, jacaranda!

    i'm afraid i don't think i can edit the sizing or shade of the font thr the linky program, Free. sorry about that.

    thanks for all of your posts, cuties!

    and yay - i see yours up there now too, bstudio! looks great!

    thanks nicies

  14. What a wonderful gift guide...so many beautiful items to choose from! Thank you for including my candy cane print. ♥

  15. hi, what a fun blog. I added one of my jewelry items and also a favorite shop. SurfandSand, however the item did not come up. hope it figures itself out.

  16. K, I see my ring got added, not sure how!

    I would like to add this lovely listing to the holiday decor section but Linky only lets me go to my shop. http://www.etsy.com/listing/80845886/new-harmony-quilled-snowflake-ornament
