Craftastic Monday Keeps Partying On

I wanted to start off this week by saying thanks for all the positive feedback on my Re-Tee Dress Tutorial.  It's great hearing how many of you are planning to try it and all the sweet comments on my little model.  I'm constantly amazed at how well she poses & tolerates putting on all my crafting designs.  She's definitely my best creation of the past year:)

Lately I've been racking up the crafting hours getting ready for my little girl's 1st birthday this weekend, coming up with some fun, new hat designs for my Etsy shop & trying to get set for the new homeschooling year to start in September.  Lots of fun, but it's definitely work too!  Stay tuned for upcoming posts on all of these very soon:)

Last week's party really showed a lot of creative ideas from scratch.  Here are a few that I thought rocked the party:

Nikki over at Mums Notebook had the great idea to take a mannequin pincushion & her fabric scraps and let her daughters play with them to make their own fashion creations.  I would have spent HOURS playing with this as a kid:

I just love this gorgeous card by Jingle of Just Jingle.  The colors, the 3D design, the cute words, the butterflies - ohhhhh so pretty:

And this clever door decor made from foam circles, ribbon & flowers by Ashley of No Apology Crafts.  Summer's almost over (can you believe it?!?), so I'm loving thrifty & pretty fall decor like this:

Ok crafting superstars I want to see what you have got for us!  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:
