Craftastic Monday Link Party - Double Party Style!!

New Look Button
I can't believe we're already starting the first August Craftastic Link Party.  Summer is just flying by!  Last week we ended our 9 weeks of CraftShare.  I want to give a big thank you to everyone who participated & help make it a success - my lovely guest posters, all the commenters & those of you that shared your own projects in the Flickr Pool.  I was a bit nervous that I'd have this big themed thing and no one would be interested, so thank you for showing me I'm not talking to myself over here!

While I'm a little sad it's over, it is nice being able to start posting projects as they happen & not have a regimented schedule.  At the end of this month my little girl turns 1, so I've been consumed with crafting a memorable birthday party & have lots of b-day crafts coming.  I was inspired by a lot of the posts I've been seeing lately, so I've made a special Craftastic Birthday Link Party for you to post your own birthday projects: cakes, invitations, decorations, favors, presents, anything crafty that's birthday-related.
I'll leave the party open the entire month of August.  Just go here to link up & grab the party button!

SO let's get going on the Craftastic weekly party!! Here are some of my faves from last week:

Pati at A Crafty Escape created this awesome pool set of cupcakes.  Eat 'em up, err..I mean, rack 'em up!

Check out these pretty vases made by Amanda @ The Hand Me Down House out of old Snapple bottles.  I'm ready to sift through by recycling bin for bottles & make a few of these:

Andrea from the Train To Crazy has a really cute, free dress pattern for making little girl dresses for Fall:

Now it's your turn to show your awesome ideas!  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.
