Want Free Advertising? Join The Craftastic Monday Link Party!

I hope all the moms out there have had a fantastic Mother's Day.  I've been lucky enough to have a wonderful day:)  Let's see if we can make this a great link-up week as well.  Last week there were some really amazing projects posted, so keep up the good work!  

I also highly encourage you to comment below about your link and add the Craftastic party button to your post or sidebar so you can be considered for Craftastic Blog of the Week.  In addition to getting a write-up about your blog, you get a week's worth of advertising here for FREE, so taking that extra second when you link up can really pay off!

Now let's see some of the sweet ideas from last week:

I loved the look of these springtime quilled flower topiaries from Suzy's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom:

Baking With Blondie shared this delicious looking melonberry lemonade.  I love the edible garnish too!

What little girl wouldn't love this Tangled-inspired hair bow holder from Ordinary Magic?  I love how cute & useful this is!

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:
Amy from Firehouse Crafts is the wife of a firefighter & mom of two boys.  She shares her adventures with her kids and project how-tos for all sorts of useful things like telephone number bracelets, cd organizers, doll making tips .  Last week she shared how she made easy-clean, mesh treasure bags for all the shells, rocks & other goodies her boys collect:
