Craftastic Monday Linky Party Time!

I've got to say I'm excited about all the crafty goodness going on right now.  I've got some great new projects to share, some super giveaways coming up and a few new surprises.  This week I'm especially thrilled because I FINALLY got my sewing machine back from the repair shop so I've been making up for lost time.  And he's got a new friend who I'll be introducing soon;)  Now if only I could just double the size of my craft room!

Last week we kickoff off the new Crafty Gear 411 series with my ode to my Snap Press and I loved the enthusiastic response!  There's still time to enter the giveaway for a code towards a pair of Snap Pliers from KAMsnaps - this is such a great tool to have in your sewing arsenal and there are TONS of ways to get extra entries.  Click HERE to enter now!

Now let's see some of the special ideas that were linked up last week:

Look at these raspberry lemonade cupcakes from vixenMade.  Pretty AND tasty!

Cozy Home Scenes showed how to make these beautiful gift bags using flour sacks and some transfer paper.  I love the old-fashioned feel of these.

Lil Pink Pocket shared this great tutorial for turning a button up shirt into a super cute skirt!  Totally want to try this.

This week had some awesome Kids Can Craft link additions so I've chosen two for the "Pick of the Week" feature:

The Life of Jennifer Dawn showed how to do DIY watercolor pages for the kids to enjoy.  This looks like a lot of fun!

How cool is this masking tape town idea from Creatively Content?!  The kids could have a blast makign AND playing with this.


The Kids Can Craft Party is for projects kids can make.  It's always open to add your links 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 so you have a chance to get featured:)

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 fun getting crafty this week!!
