A Sweet Week for Craftastic Monday's Link Party!

Welcome to a new week of Craftastic Monday Link Party fun!  I want to start out by thanking everyone who left such sweet birthday wishes in the comment last week.  It really meant a lot to see so many nice messages from so many people and so many great projects linked:)  

I'll be sharing my "Sweet Things" theme with you this week.  I've got a very special guest visiting, a new tutorial to share and something exciting to unveil at the end of the week.  There's also one more day to enter my Pellon Crafty Goods Giveaway, so get your entries in soon for a chance to win $50's worth of crafting gear!

Now let's get the party started and check out some links from last week -

Repeat Crafter Me shared these adorable vegetable garden rock signs.  Cute & functional too!

I was enchanted by these sweet Pooh bear cookies from Bringing Beauty 

And I loved the fancy, yet practical feel of this tea cup sewing organizer idea from Twigg Studios
I also feature these projects and more party favorites on the Sew Can Do's Craftastic Picks board on Pinterest.  Follow me there to see more great projects and if yours is one of them!

And now for the Craftastic Blog of the Week:

Manic Mother

Katie, a fellow homeschooling, thrift-loving mom, shares her love of decorating, renovating & turning trash into treasure at her blog, Creatively Living.  Like painting upholstered chairs, a gorgeous gardener's wreath and loads of other stunning ideas.  Last week she shared this stylish lamp "yarning" tutorial to modernize an old yard sale find:
