Craftastic Monday Link Party, Magazine News & Giveaway Winner!

Valentine's Day is coming up in just a few days, so this week's party is full of features that really share love.  And since I love my readers,I've got a special new how-to & big fabric news to share with you later this week;)

I've also got an extra Valentine's announcement: you can find me in the last issue of YUM Food & Fun Magazine!

I created this fun edible treat box tutorial, made especially for the magazine's Valentine's Day section:

Using basic ingredients, you and the kids can create a tasty, totally edible box that's just as delicious as the goodies it can hold.  You can find it on pages 12-15 of the new Spring 2014 issue, as the Cool Ideas feature.
