It's the 4th Craftastic Monday Link Party!

Well, I was wowed by the projects from last week's party!  I'm loving all the amazing ideas.  Here are a few that just blew me away:

This amazing dollhouse by Melanie at The Crafty Cupboard is an old dresser, but the best bits are all the clever little furnishings & decorations she's made inside using crafty things.  Boy, does it make me want to pull out a drawer & make a little house!

How cool is this DIY gumball machine?  Kimbo over at A Girl & A Glue Gun came up with this incredible idea using easy & cheap materials - can you believe that's a fishbowl & terra cotta pot?  Fun, frugal & crafty (my three favorite things!!).

Check out these custom straight pins from Kalleen from At Second Street.  Using a favorite item of kid's everywhere (Shrinky Dinks), she came up with these one-of-a-kind pins to make sewing even more fun:

And here's a project that took me down memory lane - Janna from Janna's Life went retro with a tutorial for 80's style barrettes.  Come on, if you're over 25 then you know of/owned some of these babies!  Mine had the beads on the ends too - I totally loved those things.

Ok, so on to this week's party.  If you've created something fun (sewing, baking, decorating, papercraft or anything else crafty), link on up! The rules are simple:
  • As long as it's crafty and made by you it's Craftastic. Just add the link to your specific post (not the main page of your blog).
  • Include the name of your Craftastic creation, your blog name & a pic of your project.
  • Grab my party button & put it on your post or blog to share the party with everyone.
  • Check out some of the other great links and share some crafty comment love.
This party is for sharing your own fun ideas & homemade projects (not promoting products), so please no giveaways, linking up another party, Etsy shops or online stores.

I leave the party open until 12pm EST Thursday. As usual, at the end of the week I'll be featuring some of my favorite links, so please remember to add the Craftastic party button to your post or blog so I can consider featuring your project.


  1. Cheryl,

    can't see the linky... :(


  2. Hi Bird,

    It's there now - for some reason Inlinkz didn't post the party until 8:37am, despite my Blogger post being posted at 12:00am. So that's why it wasn't showing up. Grrr...that's the second time it hasn't saved the proper setting.
