Welcome to a new week of the Craftastic Link Party!  Last week I was seriously wowed by all the great crafts everyone shared!  This week I'm looking forward to seeing even more AND to share a new Sew Can Do sponsor giveaway!!  Sew Can Do's newest sponsor is Seamingly Smitten - a shop that offers fun & easy patterns.

Flexible Dreams shared some super ideas for a Lego-themed birthday (I may have to use these for a "just because" day since they are so fun!):

and she also shared this adorable melted snowman ornament tutorial:

Check out this cute wooden gingerbread house from Cozy Home Scenes.  Love the seasonal charm it brings:

How about this cute and tasty mini-pumpkin pies from Pampers, Playdates & Parties?  Festive and sweet!!

Then there was a tasty truck cake by Stephanie's Scrapping Station.  I love this idea!

And the Kids Can Craft Link Party's "Pick of the Week" was Reading Confetti's Double Handprint Reindeer.  What a great way to make a holiday keepsake and give the kids a fun craft to make!


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:)

Party rules are simple:
