Garden Crafts, Greeting cards

Joining DIY & Craft LINKY parties are a great way to share your techniques, tips & howto’s and learn new ideas from others. We’re building a collection of CRAFT & DIY LINKY PARTIES around a range of themes. The party that opens this week is THEMED Mothers Day’. We also feature linky parties below with other themes.

1. As long as a ‘how-to’ section is in your article, it qualifies, AND LINK IT UP BELOW. Show us what you’ve been working on for MOTHER.

2.  You can also join the Linky party for SPRING & EASTER DIY, Home Decor and Craft projects, the one on STAIRS AND STAIRWELL MAKEOVERS, or the GENERAL DIY, Home Decor or Craft linky party, if you’ve been working on other ideas. Email me if you want to suggest a future party theme.



Before we head over to the new parties, I’d like to feature 4 submissions to our linky parties that are just fabulous, beautiful and inspiring:

colorful abc art

I love how these letters came out.  Simple wooden craft letters painted whimsically with polka dots and stripes, and made into a ‘learn the ABC’ board for a kids play room. Well-done, Ms Muffin!
