This Week's Work Link Up Party - #1

I decided to do a weekly post, sharing the weeks projects and disasters (thankfully no major crafting disasters this week!) and I wanted to give anyone with a blog the chance to share what they've been working on as well, so I created a brand new Saturday, weekly link up party.  You're welcome to share whatever family friendly project you've been working on, from sewing and crafts to cooking, organizing and schooling (and whatever else you can think of!).  And if you're working on something for a shop, you're welcome to share that too, because I love helping out small businesses!  

This week's submissions will be open until next Friday night, so you have plenty of time to come up with a post!  Have fun!

This week my post will focus on Mae's upcoming birthday.  I have two and a half presents left to create before the fourth...  We're getting down to the wire!  He's what I've come up with so far:

Some Saints for the Shop:

Mae's Saint Catherine Doll, waiting for her veil to be finished:

Some play oven mitts for the baby obsessed with oven mitts:

Mae's Rapunzel Dress:

A Blanket for the Birthday Girl (half way finished, please pardon my sewing area mess!)

This might be my favorite dress ever.  I'm pretty proud of it.  I cut it out and created it without a pattern:

And the completed habit, complete with veil and mini cape.

And I'll spare you another round of the snoods I finished, but posted yesterday, because they should be in this section too!

So... what are you working on?  I can't wait to see what you've come up with this week!



  1. Wonderful idea for a link-up. Yay! I'm adding you to my blog parties page, and getting a post ready! =)

  2. Thanks for hosting! I linked up my recipe post from this week. We will be doing some 4th of July crafts next week, so I will try to remember to link those up, as well. :-) God bless!

  3. You are amazing, crafty and so creative! I'm not so crafty, but I love creating in the kitchen, so I'll link my new kitchen creation for the week.

    I love this idea, BTW!

  4. Love this! I wish I could sew...


  5. Your dress is amazing!!! Is it for All Saint's Day? Thanks for hosting this link-up! God bless!

  6. Good morning Association of Catholic Women bloggers friend~ This morning I have highlighted one of our fellow contributors, Nancy Shuman on “Pay It Forward” at A Life-Size Catholic Blog. I didn’t want you to miss the posting, we are all so busy and it’s easy to overlook one person’s article. However, just in case you wanted to stop by and see what’s going on, I thought I’d leave you a little note.

    At the same time, I’d like to offer an invitation for you to link to the “Pay It Forward” link up. You can post about someone else, or link up a post of your own. Have a blessed Sunday! Holly

  7. Thanks for letting me link up! I was actually a bit crafty this week, so I'm glad I had something up to share.

    I love all of your crafty gifts. Your girls are so blessed to have such a creative mama!


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
