National Craft Month Linky Party and Giveaway

March 1, 2011



What better way to celebrate National Craft Month than with a linky party? With a linky party and a GIVEAWAY, of course!

What’s a linky party, you ask? Well, it’s a way to show off your best craft projects and meet new craft bloggers at the same time. (Oh, and build traffic to your site and boost your SEO, too. Just sayin.’ But really, I’m hosting it just because it’s FUN!

So here’s what you do: post a picture and a link of some of your favorite crafts and posts. See the little linky icon below? Click on that, and it’ll walk you through the steps- trust me, it’s painless. Enter up to three separate crafts and then at the end of the month, I’ll pick a number at random and  giveaway a HUGE swag bag of stuff I got at CHA– including an autographed apron signed by all your favorite craft celebs!

And there may be more! So stay link up and share the fun on YOUR blog, too: get the InLinkz code

Lastly don’t forget to set your DVR’s for the Martha Stewart Show on Wednesday, March 2nd. I’ll be there blogging and Facebooking and Tweeting my heiney off!


Don’t make me put my “Mommy” face on and have to scold you for being bad. Really.

    I’m going to jump right in. This is a card I made last week that’s a bit different than my norm while still in the same realm.

    How fun. All three of mine happen to be posted on the same blog post, so I only linked up with my Le Cirque Magnet. Can’t wait to check out all the inspiration! Thanks for the link party!

  6. Jess Says:

    Just put up my 3 – keeping my fingers crossed that I win!

  7. Christy Ashby Says:

    I’m so new to doing this, entering & i’m not understanding how to do this! I tried, clicked on the scarf/patchworks, didn’t see anywhere after-HELP!!:)

  8. Jenny Says:

    Christy- first, you must make sure your computer allows “cookies”. Secondly, click on the little blue bar at the end of the photos- you’ll see text that says “Add Your Link.” Once you do, there will be easy directions to add your URL, select your thumbnail, etc. Good luck!

    Hi Jenny,
    This is my first time here (following a link from Grandma Wren’s)on your blog and I am sure I’ll be having loads of fun discovering it!
    Thank you for hosting!

  10. Sybilline Says:

    Great idea! I do have a similar post but I am not as popular as you!: so your link is welcome!

    Hi Jenny, Hey when I go to sign-up so that I can post my pictures, it wants a blog….I don’t blog yet (I know I should get with times) So what do I do now? Thanks!

  12. Jenny Says:

    Beverly- this is a link-up party for blogs…so now (National Craft Month) is a great time to get yours started! You can always upload photos to share on the Craft Test Dummies Flickr group,( but it’s not part of the linky party or giveaway.)
