Craftastic Monday Linky & A Chance To Be Blog of the Week!

Ready for a new week of creative fun?  Here in the U.S. we've got the 4th of July holiday right in the middle of the week so it's kind of a crazy week, but I've got a new link party and a festive sewing project for you before the holiday and a fabulous giveaway & review after. And I've got to say, I'm super excited about what's coming up, so I hope you'll tune in to check it out!

Now let's see some of the creative projects from last week:

I loved these DIY flower thumb tacks by Stars & Sunshine.  She even made the resin flowers herself too!

I really want to try this cantaloupe jelly recipe from Laura Williams' Musings.  So unique & delicious!
And Elegance and Elephants shared a breezy tunic tutorial that is just as cute from the back as it is from the front:


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:
Make It Easy Crafts is the blog of longtime craft designer, Crystal.  She has loads of fantastic tutorials that are simple enough for a beginner and add creative fun to everyday things.  I really love her category tabs at the top of her blog to make it easy to find specific projects.  Check out some of  her how-to's using paper & recycled materials - she's even got great ideas for using K-cups! Last week she shared a tutorial for easy & cute coasters made with duct tape:

  4. Good morning and thanks for hosting the party. I have a tutorial on how to Freeze Beans (#84 ) and why you should avoid canned beans which are lined with BPA. They're easy to prepare beforehand and freeze for later use. Plus, they're cheap! Have a great day!
