Craftastic Monday Link Party Time!

Happy Monday Everyone!!  This weekend I hit 600+ followers.  Wow and YAY!!!!  Knowing so many of you like my blog feels great and receiving sweet comments from you is phenomenal.  Those two things tell me I'm not just talking to myself out here, so please keep on commenting - it makes my day!

Just a reminder, my Leia Hairdo Hat Pattern Giveaway is going on until 11:59pm EST Friday August 15th.  I'm giving away patterns to TWO lucky winners and there are loads of ways to get extra entries, so be sure to enter!  Just click here for your chance to win!!   

Also remember that the Craftastic Birthday Link Party going on all August long.  Click on the button below or the Birthday tab at the top of the blog to check it out.  If you've got any birthday-related projects you want to show off, just head on over & link them up.  Be sure to grab the special party button to spread the word about it!

Last week's party had nearly 100 links, so let's see if we can make it over 100 this week!  Check out these awesome ideas that were linked up (can you see the re-purposed stuff theme here?):

How clever is this tote bag made from two tank tops?!? Jenny of I Heart Jenny's Art has a fun & easy tutorial for making your own:

Here's another clever refashioned project:  Lori over at Paisley Passions used a frame & some wooden "W"s with a little Mod Podge to make this adorable lap tray:

Elizabeth at Twelve Crafts Till Christmas used drawer knobs & magnets to make this cool tic-tac-toe game.  She's even got a tutorial on how to make it:

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:
