This week has been very busy with all the preparations for Purim, so time has just flown by! If you are reading this on Sunday, you can be sure that I am not on the computer, I am celebrating Purim and trying to be the hostess with the mostess to at least 40 sit-down guests, and countless others who will wander in! (In addition to sending gifts of food to friends and neighbors, attending a reading of Megillat Esther, keeping an eye on my family, and trying not to forget about the holiness of the day!)
Once again I'm so proud of all the amazing crafters that came last week, and encouraged by the fact that the party almost doubled in size! It's so much fun to see who links up and I still have hopes of reaching an international crowd so that we can really take advantage of modern technology and travel the world together! Thanks again for coming, and do help me spread the word by posting a button or link on your blog and telling your friends. A blog linking party that's still on the small side is a great opportunity for exposure!
And now, for the highlights of last week's party! Thanks to all of you for making my blog look so good with your creative expertise!
I just love my backyard eden's interpretation of the house rules wall art that has been a popular project lately amongst the crafty bloggers, and can you believe these legos are made of soap? Over at roots and wings co you can even learn how to make your own mold with their awesome tutorial!
Kellen from at second street shared with us this too cute felt activity book! Keep your eye on her, she's a top notch crafter!
I just love these glasses etched with children's drawings created by Helen Clyde from Germany! She used a brumel tool, something I don't know too much about but know I need! And these water color painting candle sleeves are a great way to learn about translucency over at homeschooljournal-bergblog
This felt activity book from a little knick knack is equally amazing, and Paola from South Africa treats us yet again with another very sweet project, a baby quilt and matching card, with a downloadable pattern on her blog here.
This purse organizer created by sew crafty meg is just too cute and amazingly handy, and she's giving one away to boot! A beach bag from a shower curtain? Now that's a project for me! You can learn how to make one yourself over at someday crafts, with a guest post by fireflies and jellybeans.
Here's two sewing projects to get you inspired: a spring blouse sewn without a pattern over at a hoot and a holler and an adorable fleece baby jacket over at kitsch-a-licious. And last but not least, isn't this just the cutest idea for a baby shower or birthday party? A bunch of flower/insect hair clips clipped onto skewers and placed in a pot! Find out more about this project over at a little moore.
And I must mention my friend Steph over at somewhatsimple, who I think is giving me a major hint by linking to a tutorial for creating html for your own blog button. Now I really have no excuse! (Except for those 40 plus guests stopping by any minute....)
Inspired? I hope so, I know I am, though I don't know how I'm going to keep up! I'm still hoping to make some of the projects from the first party! Oh well, isn't it great to be the kind of person who would never ever not know what to do with a drop of spare time?
And now on to the linky party, please remember to put your country of origin first, and feel free to link up more than one project if you like, and grab a button here or post a text link. Thanks so much for coming!
