YOU Made It and Love It: 4 — A Link Party (and last week’s favorites!)

I’m really REALLY loving this whole Link Party thing.  Yeah, last week I completely forgot……but I was miserable with bronchitis and Chloe was in the middle of potty training.  Not a great combo…..ha!  But, I’m back this week and so excited to jump back in! This is week 4…….and if you are clueless to what a “link party” is, don’t worry, I had no clue how easy it was until a few weeks ago. (Here’s the collection of past Link Parties.)


So, here’s the deal, every Saturday, I will host a You Made It and Love It party, where you can simply click on the blue button at the bottom of the post, add your name, the URL to your project, and upload your image………and then click “done” to share.  Your image (and link) will then show up on that exact post, down at the bottom, and all will be able to see what you’ve been creating lately.  I kind of think of it as all of you squishing into my craft room, showing off what you’ve been making.  I kinda love it!  (Don’t forget to bring your own treats…)


Also, each week, I will share some of my favorite uploads from the week before.  Just for fun.


Here are only some of the few that I loved (from 2 weeks ago)….



Jamie from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Momma made this darling Sequin Raglan Top for her daughter. Oh my……I’m loving those sequins!





Shannon from 2nd Story Sewing constructed this super flattering 3/4 sleeve knit dress with a flouncy skirt.  I’m loving it with that striped blazer!




Emily from Sewing Machines and Crafting Routines is killing it in this DARLING striped dress that she made…..with pockets!  SO cute Emily!





Okay, I love doing this.  We’ll share more next week.

Wanna add to this week’s party?

Don’t be shy…

link party revised



Here’s how this party will work…….

Choose an image from a project that you’ve made, and attach it below (there’s a little blue button down there). Then, next week, I’ll feature a few of my favorites and we’ll start all over again. (And I’ll be pinning some favorites to my Pinterest account too.) You guys have so much talent in those crafty fingers of yours……so daggum it, SHARE IT!



Here are a few guidelines:

  • Insert a link back here, to Make It and Love It, into the post of the project you’re sharing…..stating that you’re linking up to this Link Party. Or you can include the button below right into your post.
  • Don’t link up to giveaways, your own linky parties, your shop, or advertisements.
  • Share the love. Visit at least 3 other links and show some love to them! (aka: leave them a comment)


If you’d like a little button to share (instead of just a plain ‘ol boring hyperlink) here’s a button for you to use. Just copy/paste the code in the scroll box and then insert into the html (the “text” not the “visual”) of your submission’s post. The button, when clicked on, will link directly back to my site.



Make It and Love It



Now go on, click on the little blue button below, attach your picture (and give it a title, etc) and let’s see what you’ve been up to! :)


And then come back again next week to share what you are MAKE-ing and LOVE-ing!

    Thank you so much for featuring my dress. I am so sorry I am just now commenting. I saw it right after you posted and then got hit by early pregnancy no fun sickness (which after reading your recent announcement I know you can feel my pain!- congrats on your 4th bundle of joy!) Then I started feeling better, went to comment, and it wouldn’t let me. So…here I am late to the party with a comment. Again, thanks so much for the feature and for adding a link party to your site. Have a great weekend, Shannon
