Craftastic Monday Link Party, Bonus Features & Lots of News

Hey Craft Lovers!  I've got an extra batch of features to share today - thanks to all the great projects linked last week.  And besides the usual Craftastic Party, there's lots of news for you this week so read on to find out what else is going on:

Congratulations ladies and a big thank you to Seamingly Smitten for providing these great pattern prizes!

A Chance to Help Others

I'm also doing some special Christmas in July fundraising for the National Stroke Association. Last week I shared how our family was affected by stroke and why helping this organization means so much to me. 

What's this mean for you?

- Every donation will be 100% matched by Balsam Hill to double the funds raised.  
- Every donation over $5 is entered for a chance to win a full set of Balsam Hill ornaments.
- All donations over $25 receive a free ornament gift. 
- A chance to do a little holiday-style charity out of season & help those who really need it.
