A September Craftastic Monday Link Party & Thanks to My Readers

Happy Craftastic Monday Everyone!  I wanted to start off with a very heartfelt thanks to fantasticly positive response to my last post, Why I'm Quitting The Craft Blog Rat Race:

It was heartwarming to see so many comments and how they echoed similar feelings & goals.  I'm truly grateful and proud to have readers like you. Knowing you're just as eager to take craft blogging into a more fun, less stressful direction is a wonderful feeling and makes me excited for this new chapter of Sew Can Do:) 

And a quick reminder that today's the last day to enter my Groovy Lab in a Box Giveaway.   This crafty kid's activity set is a fun & interesting way to get kids interested in STEM and getting back to school - my 3 kiddies highly recommend it!

I love the look of these half circle pockets on the FREE Retro Reproduction dress pattern from I Sew, You Sew:

Appetizer for a Crafty Mind shared her own spin on a cute, rainbow unicorn crochet hat:

Beneath The Rowan Tree showed the right (and wrong) ways to make some yummy & colorful rock candy -  a great how-to for first timers!

And Sadie Seasongoods wowed me with two fantastic tutorials - how to make a baluster into a bedside lamp:

  • Grab my party button & put it on your post or blog somewhere.  The code can be found HERE.

  1. Lovely party Cheryl! Appreciate your hosting us!

  2. Thanks for hosting, Cheryl! Wishing you a lovely crafting week!! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  3. Thank you for hosting! I enjoyed your post on quitting the rat race. I agree, a blog should be an online journal, the main reason you do it, should be for you, not for clicks. Do what makes you happy. I know my traffic is not what it was years ago, but I feel my content has gotten better, even though I post less often, and I feel my friendship with my readers has grown. I think that's what really matters. Have a great week!

  4. Thanks for featuring our Retro Reproduction Dress!!


Getting your comments brightens my day. I'd love if you left one:)
