Shout Out Sunday 4

Wow I can't believe it's already the 4th edition of my weekly Shout Out!  Time really does fly when you're having fun.  I've been really busy this last week working on adding more items to my Etsy shop so I haven't  been blogging much, but enough about me, let's get to my favorite projects this week!

Inspired by other crafty blogs that host link parties and share other blogger’s work, I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite crafts and recipes featured by other bloggers (and give them a Shout Out!).  Every Sunday, I will round up a handful of my favorite blog posts that I’ve come across and share them with you, my awesome readers.  Want to be featured?  Send me a message with your blog link and as long as there's something inspiring, I’ll pick out a favorite post to feature!

Distressed Crackled Vintage Map by Crafts By Amanda

This is one of my favorite wall art projects I've seen in a long time!  I love the distressed detail, especially the crackle with the stain.  I love old vintage maps and I have a perfect spot on my wall for one... when I finally get the time to put one together.  I'll have to give this tutorial a shot when I finally come across the perfect map!  I love the way this looks.

Easy Valentine's Day Glitter Sign by Lolly Jane

This is a great Valentine's Day project!  I love the simplicity and how it's so easy to do but makes a bold statement!  The pink and white are really cute together and I think every Holiday needs a little more glitter!

Cupcake Stand by Wesens Art

This project uses cardboard and a self-adhesive film, but this would also be easy to make out of scrap cardboard and scrapbook paper!  I've seen similar displays for sale in the store, but I love to create my own things instead of buying, so this would be perfect!  Great idea and they are so cute!

A Little Corner Facelift by The Velvet Door

Love love love this!  I'm a huge fan of deer decor and I want to have my own faux deer mount in my home someday.  I agree that the deer looks a little (okay maybe a lot) scary before the paint job, but I think the silver with the white frame on the gray wall backdrop looks amazing.  This is another one of my absolute favorites that I want to copy some day, as soon as I can find my own scary faux deer mount to paint!

Trashy Trunk to Classy Chic by Ava Blake Creations

I have a new-found trunk fetish thanks to Pinterest and projects like these.  I love everything about this trunk and think she really did an amazing job!  The distressing looks great and the graphics are perfect!  I love that it was a piece of junk before and now it would look amazing in any home.

As always, I urge you to visit their blogs and tell them you like their projects!  Bloggers love comments, especially if it's telling them how awesome they are!
