April's Linky Party Opens Today!

We can not wait to see what kind of re-mixing you are doing this month!
The linky party is now open for the Reversible Sling Bag and we are so excited...I got one cut out this weekend too, and can't wait to share it (I want to give you a hint--but I don't want someone else to feel like they can't make the same thing.) I will share soon ;)
The linky party will close on Saturday, April 25th (we are giving you a few more days this month) and the voting will happen the last week of April!
Link up below!

April's Pattern is.....

April's Pattern is one that is a little different for PR&P....instead of doing clothing this month we are going to do.....
I think Mandy made a great choice this month because I can see variations of this bag for some many ages and sizes and it can go boy or girl (which we all know you LOVE!)
The other great part about this bag is that it is a quick you might be able to get more than one entry in this month ;)
The linky party will open on Monday but you can pull your fabrics now to get ready and start sewing.  I have a feeling that it's going to be a great month!

Designers: Where are they Now? Mandy from Sugar Bee Crafts

Hey Everyone - - I'm super excited about my month here on Project Run and Play - Where Are They Now! I loved participating! I'm Mandy, and I am still living it up in my corner of the blog world over at Currently life is all-consumed with craziness, cause we're building our own house - - not like "let's pick out a wall color and tell the builder" but like "grab a hammer, we've got to build a house" - see, craziness. Last week we started to install our kitchen, so that was exciting:

For sneak peeks on building progress, you can follow along via Instagram (@SugarBeeCrafts). On top of that, I'm trying to walk readers through the self-build process on my blog in a Building Beyeler Hollow Series.


In other news, it's been fun to watch my blog grow and evolve - it just turned 6 and I still love all things creative, sewing, diy and blogging. And colorful!


I've been able to work with lots of fun brands and teams, including Riley Blake, Behr, Elmers, and Michaels. It's so fun to use creativity to represent brands I love. I recently spoke at a blog conference - another thing I love is sharing the awesomeness of blogging with others, so presenting about Building a Blogging Community was perfect.

Right now I'm SUPER excited to move in to our home (sometime soon, hopefully!) because for the past several months my sewing equipment has been packed away being as we're in transition. I can't wait to dig it out and start sewing, crafting, and creating!! For now, I reminisce about projects gone by, like these fun Color Run outfits I made for Project Run and Play (for the round I didn't make it to, doh!)
