Did you have a great Labor Day?! I have to admit I love these short weeks…Though I love my job, I LIVE for the weekends! Weekends are the time that I get all of my baking, blogging, crafting and DIYing in.
This week’s theme has me with kitchen on the mind (No kidding. I may have priced out a kitchen overhaul on Labor Day.), however, I don’t think a brand spanking new kitchen is in my near future. At least not this weekend…Instead, I am going to be working on a couple fun new fall recipes!
Anyway, enough about me. Let’s talk about this week’s “In the Kitchen” challenge results.
Results week is always a bit hard for me…I truly HATE to say goodbye to someone and I know you do to. Nevertheless it’s time…

In the Kitchen Winner
That means our very first Season 17 challenge winner is Crystal, from Stitched by Crystal, with her awesome chalkboard serving tray.
Watch for her winning tutorial on Tuesday!
I am so excited to share Crystal’s prize with you as well…She will be going home with a copy of Mindy Cone’s new book, Gourmet French Macarons: Over 75 Unique Flavors and Festive Shapes (CD Included) and a super-fun ruffle apron!
This week we will be saying goodbye to Melissa, from Fablifyit. Melissa is absolutely, without a doubt, the Queen of Vinyl Crafts. Her blog is full of crafts for every season, but today I thought I would show you a few of my fall favorites…
Don’t limit yourself to taking a peek at Melissa’s crafts though. She writes a lot of “real life” woman-type posts. They are open and insightful.
Come back and read my interview with Melissa tomorrow!
