Shine On Fridays #2! {and some fabulous features}

Hi, friends!
Wasn’t last week’s Shine On Fridays party fanTAStic?  I was so excited about all the great projects, recipes, crafts, and ideas…and Kara and I were thrilled to have 102 links at our very first weekly party!
Thank you so much for inspiring us; I hope you visited some of the links and enjoyed them as much as we did!  Today, it’s time to party again, but first let’s take a quick look at a few features from last week.
We were both decidedly indecisive about what to feature…{translation: You all are so awesome we couldn’t pick!}  So, we decided to feature the 8 most viewed links.  Four are on Kara’s blog Happy Go Lucky, and four are here at One Artsy Mama, plus each of us gets to pick our very favorite project too.
So, here are four of the most popular posts {Feel free to grab a sticker if it’s you!}:
Lindsay over at Southern Lovely shared this Fall Wreath and even shows how to make the fun felt flowers.  I love the color combo and her use of wheat as an extra fall-ish touch.
The Bewitchin’ Kitchen linked up these Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries!  Boy, oh boy do they ever look tasty!  You had me at cheesecake!
One of my favorite bloggy buddies, Terry from These Peas Taste Funny, made this awesome Jute and Pearl Bracelet after seeing one on Pinterest.  I actually have the same original bracelet pinned myself…I think Terry did a great job recreating it!  Check out her post to see what it looks like with different beads too.
This Organize Your Day Printable from Kimberly at The Brown Eyes Have It was a huge hit last week!
It’s easy to see why!  Head on over and print your copy! 
And now, I get the fun job of featuring one of my favorite projects…except that I’m going to cheat and feature two.  Shhhh!  Don’t tell Kara. ;)  The truth is, I just couldn’t pick {you know me, I’m Ms. Indecisive anyway!} and these two just stood out to me for their own reasons.
Here they are:

This Rootin Tootin Cowboy Party linked up by Dixie Delights totally rocks my socks!
You have GOT to go look at this post…the fabulousness is in every single detail!  From favors and decorations to “wanted” posters for each guest, stick horses, games and a dressup station…well, you just have to see it!
And I’m totally in love with this Salt Dough Starfish Garland made by Desperate Craftwives.
I’m such a sucker for all things beachy!  And it just so happens that LC and I have been playing with salt dough ourselves lately…stay tuned on Monday for more on that!
Ok, now it’s definitely time to PARTY!

    Thank you for hosting. I placed the linky button in my linky page. I grabbed the one on the top right, is that the right one?

    I have made those cream cheese strawberries for 4th of July, and I put a blueberry in the middle of each one. They were SO cute! Thanks for the fun!
