MightyCrafty Mondays

I'm announcing a new endeavor here at my blog - MightyCrafty Mondays. I love sharing projects with my cyber-friends. But as busy as we all are, I find myself on Pinterest more than anything else - always searching for new ideas and inspiration.

To help us all share our projects - but in a quick way - I wanted to host a different kind of link party - a Pinterest-link party. We'll do this on Mondays (hence the name).

I've participated in many link parties, but I know it's hard to comment on everyone's blog even when you love the ideas. But it's super easy to pin the idea to Pinterest (which is what I end up doing 98% of the time). So, let's have a link party where the whole goal is to pin new fabulous ideas to your Pinterest boards. I'm super excited...

Here are the Pin-up Party rules:
  1. Share your crafty project in the linky list below. Anything goes! Recipes, home decor, scrapbooking, cards, knitting - anything you've made with your own 2 hands and want to share with us.
    • Link directly to your original post - not the homepage of your blog.
    • You *must* be the creator/owner of the project you're linking up.
    • Don't link up to a store or a giveaway.
    • Don't link up to a post that's just a collection of photos from Pinterest or Google. 
  2. Link back to this blog in your original post. Grab the link party graphic below.
  3. Visit the projects in the linky list and pin the ones you love to your Pinterest boards. (You can also leave some comment love if you have time.)

A couple of notes:
  • Only participate if you want your photos pinned onto Pinterest. There's a bit (a lot) of controversy right now over pinning photographs to Pinterest. (Read more here...)
  • By participating in this link party, you certify that you have permission to share the photographs on your blog post - so please only link up projects that you've created yourself.
  • To protect your own photos, you should add (at least) your blog name to your photos so you can get credit for your ideas on Pinterest. (Even better - follow these ideas from Making the World Cuter to make sure your photos are pinned in the best possible way.)
I'll be visiting / pinning / commenting on all the blogs who participate - and featuring the top views too. I'm hoping this will be a fun way to share what we're working on and get lots of new ideas. I so love to see all the creativity going on. Have fun!

FYI: If you're new to Pinterest and pinning, Amy Lynn Andrews has a great must-read article: The Ultimate List of Pinterest Tips. And another great article about everything-Pinterest is The Ultimate Guide to Pinterest by Confessions of a Slacker Mom.

  1. This is a great idea. I've been away so I don't have anything to share, but will keep this in mind in the future.

  2. Just found that you had started following my blog so I had to check your blog out and discovered this party. I'm always up for a party which I always enJOY. Good luck with your new endeavor and thanks for hosting. So I'm adding you to my party list.
