Craftastic Monday Link Party & Are You Blog of the Week?

Happy Craftastic Monday Everyone!  Last week's link party was AWESOME.  There were loads of amazing ideas linked up and it was great to see so many new and returning faces.  I loved all the enthusiastic comments!!  This week I've got another fun giveaway, new projects in the works and crafty ideas for you, so I can't wait to get sharing:)

It was also great to see more commenters for consideration as Craftastic Blog of the Week. I can only pick one each week, so keep commenting & showing the party button and you may see your blog featured here + a week's worth of free advertising

And it's also time to announce the winner of the Crochet By Allie Gift Certificate Giveaway!  The lucky winner was: 
Congratulations Melanie!  And thanks to Crochet By Allie for providing such a fantastic prize.

Now let's see who rocked last week's party!

Turtles and Tails shared this great how-to for making photo bottles.  Very cool & unique:
