Hi folks, I’m so pleased you’ve made it here to Handmade Monday #113. Handmade Monday is a link up where you can share your craft projects and ideas or just poke around and see what other craft minding people have been up to.
I’ve not managed a lot of crafting this week, mostly just the essentials to get Etsy orders out. It’s been a week where life has just got in the way - I’m sure you’ve all had those! Family comes first of course, but by Friday evening I was a bit desperate to just make something so I dug out the kit that came with this month’s Mollie Makes magazine and made these hanging heart decorations. It did me the world of good :-)
I’m a huge fan of Mollie Makes Magazine, and have now joined their affiliate scheme for subscriptions and have a handy link for their opening special offer for you; just click the image below: (this is an affiliate link)
I’m afraid my slightly manic week has meant I’ve not been able to visit all the links from last week, or to pin them all to our Handmade Monday Pinterest board. Normal service will resume as soon as possible. I do appreciate you still stopping by, visiting each other, sharing each other’s projects and pinning directly to the group board. Details on the group Pinterest board are at the bottom of this post.
Ok now, let’s take a peek 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.
We had a whole load of beautiful Valentine craft and art ideas this week - what a romantic bunch you all are! I loved them all but these 2 particularly caught my eye.
The Crafty Lumberjacks always have something new and fun to share, this week they showed us this lovely needle punch embroidery hoop. I tried out needle punching a little while ago and loved it, I still have the tool so one day, when things are a bit calmer here I must get it out and have another play.
Naush from Doodle Buddies was a guest this week at Fluster Buster and had another lovely Valentine Art idea to share. This one is made from an old frame and twigs! It’s very pretty .
Congratulations to you both. there is a "YAY I was featured" button 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
