Mid-August Craftastic Monday Link-Up

Welcome to a new week everyone!  It's hard to believe but last week ended our summer long CraftShare 2011 extravaganza.  I want to send a huge thank you to all the guest bloggers who participated, all the sponsors who gave away great, crafty goodies and for all the reader enthusiasm at the topics we covered.  I really enjoyed sharing this info with you and hope you all enjoyed it too.  And don't worry if you missed any of the tutorials or topics.  The CraftShare tab above has all the links & theme info so you can find it all year long!

I'm also pleased to say that fall will be bringing some fun new projects, more special giveaways and some of the crazy-creative crafting you've come to expect here at Sew Can Do, so be sure to keep an eye open for some new fun coming soon:) 

One more bit of "business", we need to announce the winner of last week's giveaway.  The winner of the One Artsy Mama Personalized Bird's Nest Necklace is:

Congrats Jessica!  I am very envious of this fabulous prize - enjoy it!  Now let's get to some party featured links to get you in the mood for Craftastic Monday, shall we?

Mom Photographer linked a tutorial for crocheting this flower garland from plastic bags.  Sturdy to work with & a great way to recycle.

Something Created Everyday showed this beautiful cup cosy made from thread:

Check out this tasty recipe idea shared by Six Sister's Stuff for petite lasagnas:

And the Kids Can Craft Link-Up "Pick of the Week" was Scattered Thoughts of A Crafty Mom's paper mache piggy banks.  My kids love putting coins in banks, so I know they'd enjoy making some of these:


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!!
