Saturday Sparks Link Party 41

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 41!
One of my favorite things about this party is the wide and varying mix of ideas and inspiration - a virtual potpourri of imagination. It's like hitting the refresh button in my mind each time I go through the links.
Now, onto the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 40.
Fun Christmas Paint Craft for Kids from Just a Little Creativity.  Molly shares a tutorial for a Sticker Resist Paint Technique that kids and adults can use to create this fun sign. A simple project with fantastic results!
Ornament Pillow from The Life of a Craft Crazed Mom. Mellisa has a new Cameo and is putting it to good use making this oh-so-cute ornament pillow.
A Handmade Christmas-Wreaths from Vintage Paint and More. Cathy continues her handmade Christmas series with this post where she shares some of her pretty handmade Christmas wreaths.

Cute Crocheted Christmas Gnome from  Helena Haakt. Helena shares 'Inger' - the sweetest little crocheted gnome I have ever seen. Love all the adorable details.

Aesthetic Hooded Scarf from Crochet Dreamz.  A scarf is such a universal accessory and Crochet Dreamz has a free pattern to make this lovely hooded scarf that she says even a beginner can tackle.

Make Colorful Wooden Blocks from Kids Activities Blog.  Rachel shows us how some scrap wood, sandpaper, paint and imagination are building memories that will last a life time.

Hobby Stick Horse from Making our Sustainable Life. A birthday party with a 'My Little Pony' theme had Vickie sewing up a collection of these wonderful Stick Horses - so fun and unique!

  Restoring Vintage Door Hardware from Glass Slipper Restorations. Cindy shares a tutorial on how to restore vintage hardware without using any harsh chemicals. The revived iron shows off the intricate details and beauty of the metal work done so long ago.
Crunchy Cheese Crab Kataifi from The Novice Gardener.  A fixation with Joe's Crab Shacks  tempting little seafood balls had Angie in the kitchen creating this low-fat version that she says is equally delicious.
 Dark Chocolate Pistachio Truffles from Kleinworth & Co. - Gina says this is her best truffle recipe yet and they were gone in a flash.  Dark Chocolate and Pistachios - you know it has to be delicious!
And finally, a recap of my share from the party - Scenes from the Side of the Road 7. The castle may have been closed for the season, but we were still able to admire the two charming gate houses that greet you along the way.
