Craftastic Monday Link Party & Giveaway News!

Welcome my crafty friends.  It's time for another Craftastic Monday Link Up.  My craft room is a mess of fabric, patterns, project parts and the like right now...and I couldn't be happier! It feels good to be making things.  I can't wait to see what goodies you've got to show us - link 'em up below and give us a peek!

Last week I shared my DIY Exotic Sunroom Back Porch Makeover:  

I shared all my thrifty secrets for taking things from drab to fab on the cheap;)

It's time to announce the winner of the floral Fabric Bundle Giveaway:

Congratulations Renee & enjoy that fabric.  Also a big thank you to Timeless Treasures for providing this fabric 

And, don't forget, today's the last day for my pattern giveaway.  
3 winners will get my brand new Space Saver Backpack Pattern.  
It's open worldwide, so get those entries in HERE!

Now let's see some Craftastic picks..

Remember to link back to the party somewhere.

I can't feature your link if you don't share the party in some way.

I also feature these projects on Sew Can Do's Craftastic Picks Pinterest board 
AND share each of them on Twitter too for even MORE exposure!

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!!
Promote your blog/shop for FREE:  Join in the Craftastic Facebook Mixer!

Give your YOUR site/Facebook page a little boost. Crafty blogs AND shops are welcome.  It takes just seconds and gives you a chance to get more page likes & followers.  It's a great way to discover new sites to love too.  You can even add crafty giveaways 

How It Works:
Head over to the Craftastic Mixer post on Sew Can Do's FB page.  Instead of a specific post, share your main blog, crafty shop or Facebook page link in the comments there.  It means even more exposure for your crafty site every week!  Click HERE to go link up now!

    Visiting from

    1. Thanks for the sweet compliment on my sun room - it's my favorite room in the house now.

  2. Thanks so much Cheryl for featuring our Anti-Bad Vibe Shield! I'll share your link on all my social networks this morning.

    Have an awesome week!

    1. Thanks for sharing it Nancy & the social media love!

  3. Thank you so much for featuring my daughter's dress! Yes, I really don't like those big 4 patterns. I also wish there were more patterns for the tween age.

    1. I hear you Lindsay and it's funny you mention that - I've got a post coming up this week about where to find tween/teen patterns for boys (the most neglected group when it comes to patterns). Several of them are perfect for girls too;)

  4. Hi Cheryl, thank you so much for featuring my cross stitch framing tutorial! :D
