Do you remember the macaroni necklaces we all made at Vacation Bible School and summer camp? I sure do. We carefully colored all the little curved pieces and then strung them on a string. I would take mine home to my mother, who would wear it proudly to church the following Sunday.
Pasta as a decoration has come full circle. With all the fabulous, fun shapes available now, there's no limit to what you can create. That's why the Second Annual Holiday Noodle Party is hitting the 'net.
This little addition was not my creation, although I wish it had been. My cousin, the extremely talented Linda McCaskill, made these years ago, and I had a set of six. This is the only one remaining, and I have cared for it lovingly, storing it in a cotton-filled tin to protect the sweet little bow-tie pasta wings. Every year it has a place of honor at eye-level on my tree.
So here's to you, Linda! I love your work and I love you.
To see more pasta creations, see the list of links on Eileen Hull's blog.
The linky party starts today, Monday, December 12 and runs till Friday, December 16 at midnight. This event is open to all and extended in the spirit of fun and sharing the love of crafting during this holiday season. Here's how it works:
1. Post a blog on your site with a picture of your project and enter the URL of that post below from now until Thursday, December 15.

3. It can be a project created by you, your child, or anyone.
4. The only requirement is it must contain a noodle of some kind :-)
5. Please vote for your favorite design on Friday, December 16.
