Craftastic Monday Link Up & Crafty Gift Ideas

Welcome to the last Craftastic party before the holidays! I know this is the week everyone is super busy - this week I'll be wrapping up some craft related work, making a few last minute gifts and sharing a few holiday items that are actually finished (yay!!!):)  Are you still racing to make a few things?  Looking for some special gifts or maybe need to direct someone to a place to get some crafty goodies to give you?

Then check out the lovely Sugar Pink Boutique.  This shop is my idea of a gift paradise.

It has all my favorite crafty goodies like ribbons, glitter, embellishments, beads and pretty fabric sets, but has loads of other great gift ideas for other people too.  Gift the people on your list (and gift yourself a little crafty treat too while you're at it!).

Like lovely Cath Kidston stationary sets:

Pretty, yummy-looking candy lights for decorating:

Gorgeously sweet garland:

And present perfect ribbons to top it all off with:

My recent Glitter Cottage & Reindeer Barrette tutorials were both made using supplies I bought there, so there are some real treasures to be found.  And if you're like me and totally remiss on cluing people into gift ideas for you - tell them that Sugar Pink Boutique does gift certificates.  I think the best gift for a crafter is time to leisurely pick out some special goodies!


Now let's see what festive goodies got linked up last week and see some of yours now!

I just got a plain hat I planned to embellish with a flower and saw this fab fabric poinsettia headband linked up by Melly Sews.  Thanks for the ideal tutorial timing!!

Folk Haven shared her results with a sophisticated salt dough ornament tutorial.  I LOVE the combination of this pear and colorful beads.  Definitely want to try this:

Check out Garden Therapy's DIY Holiday Planter idea.  Lovely and will still be pretty after the holidays too!

And the Kids Can Craft Link Party's "Pick of the Week" was Stitch 2 Buttercups's easy bird seed wreath.  Every winter I mean help the kids make some bird seed items, but this year I've got the perfect how-to!


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 11:59pmEST every Friday, so there's plenty of time to add your newest creations.  Have fun getting holiday crafty this week!!
