We're partying with The Cards We Drew to celebrate her birthday, but we're really going to party like it's YOUR birthday! 3 winners will receive a HUGE amount in prizes. Seriously, it's ridiculous how much you can win. Go here to check out the details and get entered to win!

 
 
MOST VIEWED LINK LAST WEEK
 Floral Infinity Scarf made from a thrifted dress: growcreative.blogspot.com
Have you ever purchased something from the thrift store with the intention of creating something, but then having it go all wrong? Grow Creative did, but see what she did to turn it around.


 
GIVEAWAY DIRECTORY 
Don't forget to check out the Giveaway Directory tomorrow! It amazes me how few people enter giveaways. This is your chance at free stuff! FYI, this link is only open for two days. If you are going to do a giveaway and want to feature it here, make sure you link it up sometime on Thursday or Friday.



CATEGORICALLY CRAFTING


School is out at the end of the week here, which means it's summertime! The Summer Cateogorically Crafting Party is open. Come join up your ideas and projects to help us all survive the summer!

I know it's early, but since different parts of the US (and the world) go back to school at different times, the Back to School Categorically Crafting Party is now open. Let's get prepared!

My oldest is turning 6 this month, so I thought it would be fun to have a Birthday Party Categorically Crafting Party. I'd love to see all your birthday party ideas and posts.


ON TO THE PARTY!
You know what to do. Enter your project (up to 4 links), tip, idea, recipe, whatever. Visit others. Leave comments. PLEASE NO ETSY SHOPS! Come back again in the next few days as more projects are added throughout the week. Let the fun begin! Because blogging is not my full-time job, I will not be able to visit every link. I apologize for that because I know you all work so hard and take the time to link up here and I appreciate it! Also, we'll be highlighting our favorites throughout the week, so be sure to check back periodically! :)
