#CreativeGoodness Weekly Linky Party - Theme this week is #GlitterGoodness

Welcome to week#4 of our weekly #CreativeGoodness Linky Parties.

The theme for the party last week was #HolidaylGoodness.  

Thank you for everyone who shared their favorite HolidayGoodness projects and inspired others, as well as to those of you who shared tutorials.  Today I'm delighted to showcase one of the participants that shared an inspirational project with us.  Leslie McNeil @ MarveLes Art Studio shared insights on beautiful handmade holiday style placemats and coasters that are also beautifully quilted.  She is a talented art quilter who also does stunning free-motion quilting.  I hope you'll pop over to check out the #HolidayGoodness and other items she shares on her inspirational blog.

The theme for the party this week is #GlitterGoodness.  

Our weekly parties are all about creativity, of all forms, where bloggers and non-bloggers are invited to link up and share what they have created, to inspire others.  Any form of creating is welcome so long as you created it, which includes something you designed, created from a free or purchased pattern, recipes, DIY, etc..  

Create and Inspire, but this week, this post, it needs to fit with a "#GlitterGoodness" theme to share in this linky party.  Of course tips and tutorials are also appreciated!

Here is an inspirational tutorial on Merrick's Art for DIY Glitter Heels that just looks like #CreativeGoodness.  SewCalGal also thinks this would be a fun #KidFriendlyProject that might make for a good family craft night too!  Maybe the kids have some old shoes they'd like to turn into #GlitterGoodness and share with us this week?

If you are looking for ideas, think about #GlitterGoodness through creativity that you might find by one of the following (but this is not a criteria list, just a list to plant the seed to help some think about this theme):
- Share how you celebrate the Holidays (e.g. Hanukkah, Christmas, etc.)  And, yes, even lights can be considered as #GlitterGoodness.
- Home decor for the holidays
- Wearables for the holidays
- Accessories
- gifts
- recipes
- DIY projects for the holidays or what ever you want to share that you feel fits the #GlitterGoodness theme!

To join the party, simply click the linky tool below and follow the steps to add the url to your blog post or picture in the Flickr Group.  

1) Your creative project can be any type of creativity which you feel is appropriate for the weekly theme.  You may want to share a quilt, wallhanging, tablerunner, crochet-knit, embroidery, painted, handmade jewelry, recipe or other handmade/DIY project which you created (your own design, free or purchased pattern, recipe, etc).   
2) Of course, tips and tutorials are always appreciated, but not required.  If you did created your project using a free pattern, purchased pattern, or free internet tutorial, SewCalGal hopes you will share with others the info for others to also find the design info that you used to create your project.
3) Old blog posts, old projects, are all shareable.  Just be sure they work with the weekly theme. 
4) Bloggers can share new or old posts, as well as link up more than one post to any weekly linky party. The links that they share just need to fit the weekly theme.  And once you share a link, you can not re-share it in future linky parties.
5) Non-bloggers can participate in weekly linky parties by using Flickr.com and uploading a photo of their projects to a Flickr group "CreativeGoodness".  They can upload as many photos as they want to share to this Flickr group, but they are only allowed to link 5 photos to the linky party (any weekly linky party). And, once they've lined a photo they can not share that link in future linky parties.  Links shared must also fit the weekly theme for the respective weekly linky party.
6) When you join one of these linky parties, you automatically give me approval to snag a picture from your post, whereby I can share it in a future post with a link on my blog to highlight your project.  To clarify, each week I will happily showcase a participant from the prior weeks' linky party.  

Next week, our theme for #CreativeGoodness is #SweetGoodness .  The next Linky Party will be posted on Friday, December 19th.  I hope you will join the fun and share with us what #SweetGoodness you've been up to.

Ha! Too bad I didn't know about the glitter theme the other night as I found myself making bows for a bunch of 8yo girls out of glitter coated ribbon. Afterwards, I was the glitter queen! I even had an unfortunate glitter nail polish of hot glue and glitter.
