Links you'll love: Oct. 17

I did get to be creative today--I'll blog about it tomorrow. It was a nutty week at work and personally--I've been running a hundred different directions, but I'm home this weekend and SO VERY glad to be here. There's much to do--is it that your house gets messier when you're not around, or is it that preparing to be away creates messes? I don't know. But meanwhile, while I'm laundering and picking up, why don't you make some time to peruse the links of my crafty friends?
