Craftastic Monday Link Party & Trim The Tee Announcement

Happy Craftastic Monday Everyone!  We're ready to see you latest & greatest links, so start linking!  I also want to announce a new Sew Can Do feature for the month of December:

Trim The Tee will be a new Craft Along especially for the holidays.  Each week I'll have a new how-to for adding seasonal spice to a plain t-shirt, using basic craft supplies. They'll all be easy & inexpensive to make and feature designs that can be worn all winter long!  

This week's craft along will start on Wednesday and the theme will be gingerbread. There's even a special button to show you're taking part.  I hope you'll join me for Trim The Tree! 

Now let's see some goodies from last week's party:

Check out this awesome how-to shared by This Bountiful Backyard - make your own custom image transfers using packing tape.  Can't wait to try this one!!
Craftstorming showed her adorable miniature Christmas Cookie Advent Calendar and some handy cookie decorating tips:
Have more mini fun with these miniature snow globes at Twigg Studios:

I loved the beautiful simplicity of this wooden nativity from Serving Pink Lemonade:

If you're one of this week's features, be sure to grab my Featured On button over on the sidebar to let everyone know.  I also feature these projects and more party favorites on the Sew Can Do's Craftastic Picks board on Pinterest.     

There have been so many great holiday-theme projects linked, I've started adding a lot of them to my Helpful for the Holidays board there too!  Follow me there to see more great projects (and if yours is one of them)!

And the Craftastic Blog of the Week is...

Amanda is the creative mind behind the all-new One Crafty Mum. A mom of 3, writing from her home in Australia, she shares her loves of card making, scrapbooking, sewing, hand-stitching, cooking with new themes every day of the week.   Check out her recipe for easy finger paints and ribbon headbands.  Not only does she find time for this amazing craft blog, but she also runs The iMums, a review site for kid's apps.  Last week she linked this cute gingerbread man ornament (complete with bitten leg!):

  6. Hi Cheryl!
    Thank you for hosting this party!
    I have decided to link up our traditional table cener piece in Croatia – Advent Corolla. It has 4 candles – symbols for 4 Sundays prior to Christmas. At every Sunday dinner, family lights up candles; this Sunday we will light first candle, next Sunday two etc… These candles are put out not by blowing but with piece of bread dipped in wine, usually done by the youngest in the house.
    I also link traditional Nativity scene placed under the Christmas tree. It is assembled at Christmas Eve by whole family. The figures of Three Wise Men travel slowely toward Jesus' crib untill Epiphany (Jan. 6th) when they meet Jesus.
    I hope you will like it!

    1. Ana - that tradition with the advent candles sounds so interesting. Will have to check that out!
