Crafty Creators Link Party #16

Welcome to Crafty Creators Link Party, where you can share all of your wonderful crafts, DIYs, fashion, recipes, or all the other things that make your heart happy! After you link up, I’d love it if you’d spread the word about the party! Remember, you must be following me on social media in order to be featured on next week’s party.

This week we have the lovely Dee of Grammy’s Grid choosing the features for the party. She will be with us for the entire month of April. Make sure you head over and give her some love! I am so, so grateful to have her help.

Don’t forget to link up on Happiness is Homemade. If you miss it today (Thursday), come back and link up on Sunday. Remember that I add a new post on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays in addition to the link parties on Thursday and Sunday. You see why I’m super glad to have Dee this month!

This Week on the Blog

I’m so ready to move into our new home, so to keep me from going nuts, I made a new door hanger to hang as soon as we move in. Check out the tutorial to see how to make your own wood door hanger, including a free SVG that you can use!

With the move coming up next weekend (it got pushed back and I feel like a kid whose Christmas was delayed!), I knew that I better get all of our mothers’ and grandmothers’ Mother’s Day gifts made ahead of time. I came up with a budget-friendly DIY gift that you can make from a Dollar Tree sign, and of course I included the free SVG for you! My mom’s gift has already been delivered, and she loves it and hung it right away, so I can say it’s mom-approved!

I have some free printables and another DIY Mother’s Day gift tutorials on the way, so make sure you follow me on social media using the buttons in the sidebar, so you don’t miss them! If you’d like to be featured on next week’s party, you must be following me on one of the platforms. You can leave a comment at the end of the post to let me know what platform you’re following. Enter your email address below to get an email when I add a new post, including new link parties, so you never forget to join us!

This Week’s Features

Featured Bloggers: Follow me on FB & IG for more recognition!

If you are featured this week, let me know in the comments if you’re following me on Facebook and/or Instagram. Just a short “following” will do. If you are following me, I will schedule a post promoting your featured post across all of my social media accounts including FB, IG, Twitter, MeWe, etc. I will tag you in the post so that all of your followers can see how great your post was as well! The social media features happen throughout the weekend and just before next week’s party (usually on Tuesday and Wednesday nights). Last week I had two of the featured bloggers let me know they were following, so they were featured last night as a lead-up to this week’s party. I love showing y’all some love! If it’s been a while since you’ve been featured and you’re following, leave me a comment just in case. I’ve got a lot of craziness going on and a terrible short-term memory lol!

My great-grandmother had a screen door back when I was a child. She had several holes that spread which ruined the whole door (it’s too hot where I live for anyone to have them anymore… like year-round hot and muggy!). Denise of My Home of All Seasons shared a tutorial to save your screen doors from eventual ruin which could save you lots of money!

Ann from Apple Street Cottage created this delicious smelling lavender soap that looks just as pretty as it smells! Head over to see her easy-to-follow tutorial so that you can make your own! They would be perfect to give to the special women in your life for Mother’s Day.

Speaking of delicious things, Laura of Me and My Inklings shared this yummy gluten-free strawberry blondie bar recipe. I love the adorable way she packaged them, which makes them perfect to give as sweet goodies to add in with the Mother’s Day lavender soap bars or as end of the year teachers’ gifts.

Next, we have an easy tutorial for turning tired ceramics into beautifully updated pieces to add to your home decor by Donna of An Organized Season. Head over to check out her super easy tutorial. Think of all the thrift store items you can revive!

Debbie over at Debbie-Dabble linked up last week sharing her beautiful collection of moss rose patterned China that she displays beautifully in her hutch. Included in her post is some great historical information on the China as well as her beautiful Easter tablescape and dinner. You will also love getting update on the dabbling she does each week.

If your post was featured, grab your “I was featured” button to display on your blog! Just right click on the image and choose “Save Image As,” then add it to your site. You can add a link back to the blog with the image if you’d like. I would really appreciate it.

I’m so happy that you’re here, whether you’re here to share your latest blog posts, to be inspired be the creativity of bloggers around the world, or both. I can’t wait to see all of the wonderful things that are shared here. You can link up to five family-friendly posts. Since the blog is new, you’re free to share anything you like. New, old, link parties, giveaways, anything as long as it’s not offensive. That may change as the link party grows, but for now, have at it! Don’t just link and run. Visit few other posts before yours or peruse and visit a few that spark your interest. It’s not required, but I would love for you to share a link to the party or my blog in your post or somewhere on your blog. Remember, in order to be featured, you must be following me on at least one social media account.

  3. Hi Niki. I’m busy visiting links. Lots of creative people linking up at parties these days. Have you or your readers ever thought about creative writing? We’d love to have you all linkup at our short story prompt party. It’s fun and helps exercise our brains! Don’t worry about a lot of editing. Use the first sentence prompt and just start typing, see what you come up with!
