Hello Crafty Friends! This Craftastic Monday I've got a double dose of features coming at you - there were just too many good projects to narrow it down to only a few. I've been frantically trying to get school things organized, do some projects with the kids, ferry them to all their end of season activities and packing for a final summer family trip. It's a nice kind of busy (better than busy with unpleasant things), but all the inspiration at the link party has me clamoring for the next bit of time I'll have to craft!
It's time to announce the winner of the Durathon Digital Iron Giveaway:
Congratulations Lindsay and a big thank you to Hamilton Beach for providing this fantastic prize.
And if you weren't the iron winner, fear not! Last week I kicked off a new safari-themed Fat Quarter Fabric Bundle Giveaway too:

Ready to link up your crafty creations?
Party rules are simple:
- As long as it's crafty, and made by you, it's Craftastic (no links to giveaways, shops, link parties or other people's work). Add the link to your specific post (not the main page of your blog). Product reviews, plagiarized or sponsored posts for random items will be immediately deleted.
- Grab my party button & put it on your post or blog somewhere. Party pages are fine. If you want the chance to be featured, this is key. The button code can be found HERE.
- Check out some of the other fabulous links and share some crafty comment love. We all love getting comments!!
