It's A Labor Day Craftastic Monday Link Party!

Happy Labor Day Everyone! For those of us here in the USA, Labor Day is a time to enjoy the last of the summer, get caught up on things and for us crafty types, a great chance to work on some projects.  After a big family birthday weekend I know I need some extra time for all of those things!

I LOVED seeing so many comments and great links at our last party.  I've got even more of them featured on the Craftastic Picks Pinterest board because there were so many clever ideas and not enough room to put them all here.  Keep those links coming for September & wow us with your craft talents. 

Now let's see some of last week's creations!

These sugar shack cake pops by Pint Sized Baker are so adorable:
For a tasty & easy to make lunchbox item, try this homemade cheese crackers recipe over at Healthy Kitchen Guide.
Do some cheap & easy decorating with these DIY mini topiaries from Alderberry Hill:
This vintage train case makeover at Jed and Ivy just blew me away.  I want one of my own now!!

And now for the Craftastic Blog of the Week:
Twodaloo is the blog of Stephanie, a speech-language pathologist and mom, sharing her experiences with parenting twins, early childhood activities, and living a creative life.  She has some great categories  liked projects for kids in her Themed Units section, fabulous Food ideas and her Deal of the Month creations where you can buy custom matching his & hers themed outfits. Last week she shared a great tutorial for making pleated shoulder straps to add some fun to outfits:
