Whoop Whoop! It’s time for Handmade Monday, our weekly craft link up.
Handmade Monday is a link up for creative bloggers to share up to 3 of their projects, old or new (just try not to link up things you’ve shared here before please) It’s also a fun place to find some new ideas or inspiration.
I had a wonderful day at the Creative Craft Show on Friday. I always have a good time at these shows, I feel like I’m with ‘my people’ (ie everyone there loves crafts!) For example, on my way to the show I shared on Instagram that I was wearing my pretty embroidered necklace, one I’d made from a Mollie Makes kit last year but not worn much. Throughout the day at the show I had lots of comments and compliments on it. back at home in the evening my husband said “What IS that round your neck?” and our youngest asked me “What is this thing?” holding up his phone with my IG post. THIS people, THIS is why I have to go and mix with craft loving people sometimes! At least our son did like my IG post anyway even if he had no idea what he was looking at!
You can read all about the great time I had here.
Ok then, let’s 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.
I don’t pick recipes as features very often here, sorry. I don’t know why, I do like seeing all your new recipes and cooking ideas. Anyway, let’s put it right with this feature from Claire Justine. I LOVE onion bhajis and these look so good.
Brides on a Budget has a lovely idea to make a wedding shadow box with preserved flowers, photos and other bits and bobs saved from the wedding.
Congratulations to you both. There is a "YAY I was featured" button over here if you want to add one to your blog :-
Do join our Pinterest Group board if you haven’t already done so. Then you can pin the projects that you link up here, I don’t even min dif you add the odd older project that you’ve not share here. as long as it’s a handmade project idea, tip or recipe it’s all good. I pin what I can that is shared here but when life gets busy that gets harder so if you all pin your own it’s win win :-) Instructions on how to join are on the board.
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 ^_^

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
