Crafty Creators Link Party #46

Welcome to Crafty Creators Link Party, where you can share all of your wonderful crafts, DIYs, fashion, recipes, or any other thing that makes 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.

Don’t forget to link up on Happiness is Homemade. Now let’s get to the posts that I shared over the last week

The Christmas shopping season is here, and I’ve teamed up with some lovely ladies to bring you The Joy of Giving Giveaway. Enter to win a $175 gift card to spend on Etsy. Imagine all of the great things you can buy with it! There are daily entries, so make sure you came back and enter every day until December 15. Follow me on every social media platform to increase your chances to win!

Our annual Christmas family movie night is coming up this weekend, and our kids have chosen How the Grinch Stole Christmas as the movie. We go all out with decor, themed food and drinks, games, and even a photobooth. A few days ago I shared this free printable pack with all of the Grinch printables that I’ll be using on movie night. There’s even an initiation that you can use to get your kids excited for the night, or even use it for a Christmas party!

Sunday I shared a Christmas porch leaner that I made for less than $10! You can make it with or without a cutting machine by using the free designs that I shared in the post.

It’s the time of year when we have delivery drivers at homes at least once a day. They are hard at work delivering thousands of packages a day, and I wanted to let them know that I’m grateful to not have to go out and shop in person! I made a cute little drink and snack basket that they can get what they want out of. You can print my delivery driver thank you printable for free if you want to create your own.

This Week’s Features!

These folded fabric ornaments made by Cheryl over at Sew Can Do are absolutely gorgeous! They look pretty easy to make, just time consuming, but so worth it!

Debbie of A Debbie Dabble Christmas created this absolutely fabulous winter beverage bar. Don’t you love it?!

If you’re looking for great handmade Christmas gifts, this handknit chunky yarn blanket is a perfect. It looks so easy, and who wouldn’t want this?!

Carol over at Blue Sky at Home shared a tutorial for making these adorable lighted bottle brush trees and felt pom-pom trees on her Christmas tray that was part of our Winter Wonderland on a Tray Blog Tour. I love the color scheme that she used. I’m definitely going to decorate our master bedroom with it next year! Do you think the hubster will mind lol? He’s down for anything I want to do which works out perfect for me!

These DIY candy cane bamboo sticks made by Meagan over at Decorative Inspirations are so pretty. I love the white pompom trim and how they look with the greenery stems!
