I hope you all had a great weekend and have some good creativity on your agenda for the week!
Did you happen to try any of the six free projects that were featured in last Friday's post?
And in honor of the it being "back to school season," Qbookshop.com is having a (what else) Back to School Sale!
You'll find one of the world's largest collections of craft books at Qbookshop.com. There's still plenty of summer left to finish that mixed-media or needlework project you've been putting off, and they've got the books to help you get started. The Qbookshop.com craft library has your crafting needs covered, whether your passion is needlework, scrapbooking, sewing, beadwork or another hobby.
Here's the best news: for a limited time you can save 30% off the original price on your entire purchase of books about any hobby. After you place your items in the shopping cart, just enter Promo Code SUMMER6 and click the "Apply" button before checking out. Don't delay! This offer ends at midnight CT on Monday, August 27.
And of course, since it's Monday, here are some links to what my fellow crafty peeps are up to:
