Time For The Craftastic Link Party & Latest Giveaway Winner

Welcome to another Craftastic week my lovelies!  I'm really looking forward to seeing more great ideas from all of you - my Craftastic Picks board on Pinterest is growing like crazy thanks to your super crafty links!

I've got some really special projects & tutorials to share with you too.  It's just tough deciding what to put up next!  I've also got a few ideas brewing for some projects to do together, new crafty stuff I'm in love with and ways to craft out of our usual comfort zones.  More on all that to come soon:)

And it's time to announce the winner of the Pellon Home Goods Giveaway.  The lucky winner was:
Congratulations Lynaeve!  And a big thank you to Pellon for providing such a fantastic prize.

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

Stars and Sunshine shared this really great tutorial for making a tufted headboard.  I love seeing how to make your own high end styles like this!

Take a look at this fantastic tutorial for polymer clay cupcakes by Wesen-Arts.  So adorable!
I also love how chic and simple-to-make this how-to from Bored and Crafty is - looking stylish has never been so easy:
And since I'm on an "embellish upgrade" kick with ordinary objects lately, I loved the look and ease of these mini ribbon paper clips from Toasty Studio:
And now for the Craftastic Blog of the Week:
Two Succulent Sisters is the creative blog of sisters Linda and Carol.  They have a real talent for all sorts of crafts - painting, repurposing thrifty finds, decorating and much more. Check out these clever ideas like checkerboard shoelaces, getting the best deals at tag sales, and my absolute favorite, painting on photo frame mats (you have GOT to see these - just amazing!!).  Last week Linda linked her upholstered bucket transformation:
