Links I'm Loving: Great ideas for back-to-school

This week, I’m giving away a copy of Courtney Dial Whitmore’s gorgeous new cookbook, FrostingsIt’s not too late to enter! Meanwhile, in the shop, I listed a new disco dance invitation, new prince theme items, and some new Union Jack theme printables; and in very cool and unusual news, I was quoted in a book about starting a craft business. But by far, the best news this week was that I sent a $500 donation check to Icing Smiles, a wonderful charity that we here at Chickabug are proud to be involved with as a fundraising partner! Check out the Icing Smiles site and learn more about their good works here.
