Now for to Continue This Party 

A Few Simple Guidelines: 

1)  Link any kid-friendly, child-centered post. Please no etsy shops or giveaways, etc.  Remember to link to your actual post and not to your blog home page. If you have a general adult-made craft you should share it at Crafty Weekends!!

2I would love it if you would follow me on FacebookGoogle+, and Pinterest 

3) Please visit at least 3 other posts linked up. Pin, share or comment please!

4) If you do not have a blog, but want to share an idea you can leave it in the comments or e-mail it to me with a picture (if possible).
