October Party - Craftastic Style!

Before starting this week's party, I just want to remind everyone that the rest of the week will be full of Laminated Cotton fun.  Project ideas, tutorials AND a giveaway, so be sure to stop by and check things out!  Now back to our regularly scheduled Craftastic Party:

For me, last month was a blur of making orders for my Etsy shop (who knew my hats would be so popular for Halloween?), so seeing all the terrific ideas at the party gave me some serious crafter's envy.  But I'm hoping to squeeze in some new fun crafting soon and there has been no shortage of inspiration at this party!!

Here are my picks for the Fall/Halloween themed item's from last week:

Diary of a Preppy Mom showed how to make a super cute pumpkin using dryer duct & wine corks.  Authentic looking & unique!!

Le Chateau des fleurs got festive with a witches' party.  I love the spooky cake:

And some of the other non-themed ideas I loved:

Check out these pendants by Saraccino.  Would you believe they are made from Fimo & wooden stamps??

She Wears Flowers made an awesome dog-themed party.  This invitation is just one of the adorable things she made - you've got to stop by and see the rest:

Can you tell I'm into parties this week?  Cute As A Fox made this cool Mario party.  How amazing are these decorations filled with fireball candies?!!?

And because I couldn't resist this one (since my major was French back in the day), Chantal Vincent Art made this impressive doll size Musee d' Orsay art museum out of felt.  It really opens to display tiny works of art!

Now it's down to you!  If you've created something fun (sewing, cooking, 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:
