A Midsummer Craftastic Monday!

Happy Monday Everyone!  I don't know about you, but for me, this summer is already flying by!  With the weekly CraftShare topics, tackling the gardens, working on "necessary" projects & all the activities of summer, it has been pretty busy around here.  On the plus side, I am very close to having some new reversible patterns in my Etsy shop, more giveaways, some new tutorials & a few fun ideas for the kids ready to share with you, so don't think that CraftShare over if you see something else here & there.  I just don't want to wait to show you this stuff!!  

I am also still looking for some talented people to guest during our Die Cutting Project Week (the last week of July).  I'm a newbie with my Cuttlebug, so I'd LOVE to have a bit of help from some experienced crafters.  So if you've got a Cricut, Silhouette, Cuttlebug or another kind of cutter and you've made some cool stuff with it, let me know and you can be a featured crafter that week.   

Ok, so now it's Craftastic party time people.  I swear there is no shortage of clever, crafty ideas in this party.  Every week I am wowed.  Here are a few fab items from last week:

I love the sweet simplicity of these little wooden dolls made by Amy of  Serving Pink Lemonade.  How cute would a little doll version of your own family be using this idea:

How about this for a healthy and tasty summer treat: Singing With The Birds shows us how to make some yummy Fruit Yogurt Pops - she's even got a strawberry margarita one.  I cannot wait to make both for the big 4th of July weekend.

And for a little summertime decor, check out A Sign Of The Times tutorial on making this sea glass candleholder that can make any place feel beachy:

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 craft 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. Thanks for hosting again. Have a great week.

  2. Hi Cherly, love the crafts and the pops look delicious. Hope you have a great week. -- Yoli :)

  3. Always love these parties! And I always find inspiring ideas. Thanks!

  4. Thanks for hosting your MIDSUMMER, (it's barely the beginning in Idaho) party and for featuring my yogurt pops. They are yummy and even my little grand who say, I don't like yogurt," think I'm giving them a treat for breakfast! I've been making all kinds and they turn out so fun.

  5. I am your newest follower! Thanks so much for hosting the link party.


  6. I am a day late to the party, but glad to be here anyway. Thanks for hosting


Getting your comments brightens my day. I'd love if you left one:)
