.:Market Yourself Monday - Lanyard:.

Happy Monday!

I know I say that every Monday, but I just feel like it's the perfect greeting to start off the week. So many people dread Mondays, which I understand, but let's try to drown some of that dread with a little pep!

I hope you all had a good weekend. Ours was busy, but I'm not even really quite sure with what. I guess just regular life, we didn't do anything big or out of the ordinary.

I have to apologize for not getting Showcase Saturday features up! I had every intention to, but of course, life got in the way, and I just pretty much spaced it. By the time I realized it, my Saturday was too busy to sit down at the computer and give your links the time they deserved. So accept my apology, pretty please?

And I hearby promise that it won't happen again. This week anyway.

In case you missed me over at Brassy Apple last week, I'll be sharing this lanyard I made. It would be a perfect back to school teacher gift, but even for a mommy, it's a great little thing to have! I love not having to dig around in my bag, while holding a one year old on my hip, and making sure my two year old isn't running in front of a car in the parking lot.

Don't worry, I'll show you how to make one tomorrow!

In the meantime, let's get this party started!

I want to see what you've been up to! Projects, tutorials, recipes, shops, giveaways - we're pretty open around here. Just be a pal and link back when you can.

The party goes through Friday nite, and I'll be featuring five ideas on Saturday!

Also, today is the last day to enter the giveaway from Yards & Yards! Three patterns = three winners!

I also guest posted on Nap Time Crafters over the weekend (man, I get around!) and you should check out my post, but if you're just in it for the free stuff, I also have a little giveaway going on over there, too!

And maybe, just maybe, I might have another giveaway for you in a few hours. So be sure to check back!

Now get linking!
