Craftastic Monday Linky, A Winner & Craftastic Blog of the Week!

Happy Monday Everyone!  Are you ready for a new party week?  First, I want to say how thrilled I was to see so many people commenting to be Craftastic Blog of the Week.  So many great blogs - I can only feature one each week, so please keep on linking & commenting and you might see your blog up here soon! 

I've also got a great new giveaway starting tomorrow, a bunch of crafty reviews & info to share and some new creations I think you're going to love.  Is it nerdy to say I can't wait to show you everything?  Yeah, I'm a super craft nerd.  It's also time to announce the winner of the Loopy Loop Creations giveaway:
Congratulations on winning a $15 gift certificate and free shipping Larissa!

Now let's see some of the creative projects from last week:
Check out this awesome recycle - Alderberry Hill transformed an old headboard & footboard into this beautiful outdoor bench!
How about this fun felt monster by Saraccino? He's got so much personality - she even made his eyeballs out of clay!
And I loved this baby hair headband idea from Small Fine Print (is it any surprise since I'm the hairdo hat lady?).  With my almost 3 yr old still not having much hair in front, a few of these would still come in handy:
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)!
Follow Me on Pinterest
And now for the Craftastic Blog of the Week:
Pint Sized Baker
Pint Sized Baker is the creation of the lovely Karyn, a self-taught baker, who shares all sorts of wonderful treats and how to make them.  I have been seriously wowed by what she's whipped up: lemonade cake pops, chocolate wontons, fruit tartlets and more. Last week she linked up these fun watermelon cake pop and fun-da-middle cupcake tutorials.  They both look so summertime fresh!
