Hey everyone! So glad to have you back to join another party!

Last week I took a little break from crafting and blogging, and spent the week transitioning out of Summer and getting ready for the Fall. My tween just went back to school, and I can’t believe it, but she is on the verge of the teen years! I still have about 6 more months that I can say I officially have a tween, but I know the day is coming!

A couple of big announcements, in case you missed it – we are looking for Fall / Holiday contributors for the site to share one post a month for the months of Oct, Nov, and Dec. You can apply here if you are interested.

Also, we just launched a new craft series – CREATIVE BLOG TALK. We have learned so much from our crafty blogging journey, we wanted to share our own tips and experiences with all of you.

Welcome to the Monday Funday Link Party!

It’s September which means that I am officially allowed to talk about Halloween without people looking at me like I’m nuts, ha! I love handmade costumes so much that I started another site called Really Awesome Costumes dedicated to well… just that… really awesome handmade costumes! One of my all time favorite costumes, is our family of 3 costume last year (I was pregnant)! I love a quick, easy DIY costume like grandpa, tourist, or an American Idol contestant! Speaking of quick, I picked 10 quick-ish crafts to feature from last week’s party! A contact paper heart made out of triangles… love!
