Handmade Monday #98

Handmade Monday craft link up

Hello and a very warm welcome to our weekly craft link up, Handmade Monday.

It was out oldest babies birthday this week. I found it a little bit weird as she is now the same age that I was when I had her. That means I’ve been a mum for exactly half my life now!


We had cake (of course!) It’s a coffee and vanilla marbled cake with chocolate, coffee and vanilla buttercream marbled icing and a load of stuff bunged on the top! Chocolate buttons, fudge pieces and sprinkles.

Our tradition is also that on or near your birthday you get to chose whatever you like for dinner so yesterday we had shepherd’s pie and tiramisu (not together - the tiramisu was dessert!)

Now let’s take a look at the features from last week’s Handmade Monday. Please click on the photos to go through to the original posts if you want to pin any of these ideas.

Suzer Space joined the Pinterest Challenge this month and made some super cute little paper tote bags for giving gift cards.

Marjan from Atelier Marie-Lucienne’s crocheted Owl cushion cover is just to cute not to feature. I do love a cute owl project!

Congratulations to you both. there is a "YAY I was featured" button for your blog over here if you want to add one to your blog :-)


Handmade Monday has a group Pinterest board. I pin as many of the projects shared here as I can each week, but I don’t always get to you all. If you’d like to join the board and pin your own projects there you are very welcome. Just follow all my boards on Pinterest then email or Pinterest message me, letting me know the email address you use for Pinterest and I’ll send you an invite.

Handmade Monday is all about building a crafting community,  we most definitely are 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
