Craftastic Link Party Time!

Happy Monday Everyone!  Ready for a new week of great crafts?  I'm longing for the day when I have some time to work on some new just-for-fun stuff.  I've spent the past weeks with a horrible sinus infection (boo!!) & been run off my feet with business-related sewing, so there hasn't been much time for me to get crafty:(  I have been very lucky to have some terrific guest posters sharing some great tutorials to help me through, so a huge thanks to those talented crafters!

Speaking of special guests - like the necklace above?  Friday's guest poster,  One Artsy Mamais sponsoring a fabulous giveaway for a personalized bird's nest necklace from her shop.  Click on the giveaway link at the top of the blog to enter!

This week is our last week of CraftShare.  Boy, has it gone by FAST!  But we're ending with a fun topic: Hot Glue Gun Crafts and this week's projects are really fun, so be sure to check out the next few days posts & get your glue on!

Let's take a quick look at some of last week's party projects:

Blooms and Bugs shared her great Sew Easy Dress tutorial.  Simple & sweet!

MeiJo's Joy shared this adorable little mouse pop-open purse.  So cute!

And because you know I'm a Star Wars crafting kind of girl, check out this R2D2 cake by Life In The Motherhood:

From the Kids Can Craft Link Party, I had two "Pick of the Week" links:

One is Jellyfish Jelly's Fabric & Foam Art idea.  So cool looking & a great way to use those scraps!

Two is Seven Alive's Homemade Lava Lamp.  I remember making one when I was a kid & definitely have to help my own kiddies make one:


The Kids Can Craft Party is for projects kids can make.  It's always open and the projects do not have to be new (so if you've got a good one from last year, throw it up there!).  You can link up ANYTIMEJust click HERE to get to that party.  Please remember to link back or put the Kids Can Craft button on your blog:)

Ready to link up?
Party rules are simple:

  • As long as it's crafty and made by you it's Craftastic (no links to giveaways, shops, other link parties or other people's work - THEY WILL BE REMOVED).  Just add the link to your specific post (not the main page of your blog).
  • Grab my party button & put it on your post or blog.  The code's on the sidebar ->
  • Check out some of the other great links and share some crafty comment love.
I leave the party open until 10:00pmEST every Friday, so there's plenty of time to add your newest creations.  Have a great, crafty week!!
