Craftastic Monday Link Party

Hey Crafty Friends.  Can I just say how much I need a fresh, new week right now?  You know the phrase "When it rains, it pours."? Well, I feel like I've had a bucket dumped over my head recently.  Unexpected setbacks on projects, stressful home renovations and some other troubling issues I can't go into right now have worn me down and out, so I'm sorry if I don't seem as together as usual for a little while.  I hope seeing all your wonderful ideas and sweet party comments will help me get re-charged and look positively at what's to come:)

Now let's see some of the fantastic links from last week:   

Easy Peasy Grandma shared her adorable pink pirate knit hat.  I just love the flower accent on the kerchief part:
Alderberry Hill showed this cute countdown to Halloween plaque:
Another great Halloween-themed idea came from Dresden Carrie with this festive glitter felt wreath tutorial:
For some cuteness overload check out this Minnie Mouse-themed Cozy Coupe at Little Corbin Hill:

And now for the Craftastic Blog of the Week:

Marty's Musings is the blog home of Marty, a mom and lover of DIY and thrifty things.  She shares her experiences with scrapbooking, home projects, living frugally and raising her 5 adopted & biological children.  And she's been homeschooling for an amazing 18 years! You've got to check out some of her beautiful projects like her incredibly organized scrapbook room tour and lift-top coffee table made from a reclaimed window.  Last week she linked this gorgeous branch candle centerpiece.  Just lovely!
