Welcome to Handmade Monday 77, our weekly link up where we all get chance to share what we've been up to. Stop for a while and share your makes, bakes or your adventures in the world of crafts!

It was my birthday this week - Yay! As he wasn't working this week our middle son excelled himself and made me a cake - pretty impressive eh! The bunting was a reuse from before (we don't throw things away much in our house)

Can you guess how old I am ?!

I had several craft supply items as gifts too. Some I asked for (I find what's apping links to specific items works well with the kids), some were a surprise; like a pyrography tool. I just mentioned in passing to a friend that I'd enjoyed having a go at it when I visited a show at the NEC recently, I'm so lucky to have such lovely friends, I can't wait to have a go with it. 

Now let's see the features from last week's Handmade Monday.

Marjan from Atelier Marie-Lucienne make a beautiful crochet bag with added beads for a fun summer look. I love the bright colour combo. The almost look like mini pom poms from a distance. 

Liz from Howling at the Moon, made seed packet invites for a friend using her mad artistic skills. What a lovely idea and a lucky friend! 

Sew Create and Recycle has a great idea if you have narrow feet and find shoes are often too loose for you  - make custom fit little padded bits (technical name!) Clever eh! 

 Congratulations to you all. there is a "YAY I was featured" button for your blog over here if you want to show off just a little (I think a little showing off is in order now and again!) 

I do try my best to visit you all and also to pin your projects to our Handmade Monday Pinterest board. The trouble is that the more popular the link up gets the harder it is for me to get to you all. Please do consider joining our Pinterest Board if you've not already done so and then you can pin your projects directly. To join just follow the board and follow the instructions on the board description. 

Handmade Monday is all about building a crafting community, (it's always better together) so please do take a moment to visit some of the other projects linked up this week. Share some of your favourites on your social media maybe and leave a nice comment or two.

 Let's support one another  ^_^

The rules for Handmade Monday are very simple:

  • Did you make it? Yes - then hooray, we'd love to see it
  • Add the link to a specific post, not your main blog url
  • You can link up to 3 posts each week but try to make sure it's not stuff you've shared here before
  • Mingle - visit some other links - comment - share

If you are not sure of anything more details can be found here
