Welcome to The Really Crafty Link Party #94!

Hello, and welcome! I'm so glad you could join us for another party and to what you've been working on lately. Please try to visit at least a couple of other links and share on social media - the more, the merrier!

Have you noticed that we're past mid-November already? Time really flies and I have a lot of crafting to do for the holidays, hopefully I'll be able to share it in the next few weeks too.

The really crafty link party, keeping it real, craft blog

As usual, the linkup will be open until next Thursday and I will be posting the features on Friday, November 24th.

Did you miss last week's amazing features? Click the image blow to check them out:

The Really Crafty Link Party is focused on crafts, so the idea is for you to link up all your crafty posts: DIYs, printables, home decor, tutorials, recipes, whatever you want to share. Feel free to share as many links as you want, and old posts are welcome!

I have no problem if you want to add the same link in more than one week; it will still be eligible for a feature but please note that I will comment and add it to the Pinterest board only once.You can add posts on other subjects (family friendly please), but only craft related posts will have a chance to be featured and will be pinned to the party's Pinterest board.

If you host your own party, add it too - it may not be featured, but you'll be sharing it with all of us anyway, and everyone loves to discover new parties!




Instructions: Select all code above, copy it and paste it inside your blog post as HTML

There are no thumbnails in the party, so in the "name" field of the linky make sure you add an interesting title/description to your post. If you follow me via any social media (icons in the side bar) let me know in the comments and I'll make sure to follow you back!

By linking up you give me permission to use your photos in features or round-ups, and to share your posts on social media (always with a link back to you for proper credit).







Thank you again for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!

When you linkup, your e-mail will be added to The Really Crafty Link Party mailing list and you will receive one (and only one) e-mail each week to let you know when the party goes live. All mail addresses are kept strictly confidential. You can unsubscribe at any time by replying to the e-mail or sending me a message to keepingitrreal@gmail.com.

DIY envelope purse organizer

So last weekend I created three purse organizers as a birthday gift for a friend (you can read about it here) and I promised I would post tutorials for each of the pieces. Here's the first one: the envelope shaped purse organizer.

Of the three, this is the easiest one to sew, so it's perfect for beginners. Bottom line, if you can't sew you can use fabric glue and get nearly the same result. Here's the how to:

Hello, and welcome. Today I'm going to show you a set of purse organizers I made for a friend's birthday. I know I'm already late for all the Christmas crafting, but this birthday came first and I had to rush to finish the gift last weekend.

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - tile work

I'm going to travel to Oporto again today and I suddenly remembered that I forgot to share some of the photos I took the last time I was there.

So here they are, showing the the amazing decorative tile work of the S. Bento train station.

This is the train station seen from the outside, an imposing but otherwise unremarkable building.

Simple Zucchini Quiche

Quiches are one of my favorite foods to cook when I need to prepare meals to take to the office. They are also helpful as a side dish at parties or even if you have friends over for dinner. There are zillions of food combinations you can put in quiche, but this zucchini quiche has got to be one of the easiest to make. And it looks really pretty too.
