These are 10 of the best creative ideas/tutorials of last week’s Party submissions. I selected these based on originality, creative execution, quality, eco- friendliness, usefulness and beauty. However, almost all submissions so far have been impressive, and am really inspired each week!! Thank you all for sharing, and I encourage everyone to really visit the other blogs that are submitting projects in the link party. Not just to do them a favor of leaving them a sweet little comment, but to hone your own creativity and to learn from others!
