This week I thought I would post Se7en Craft Collective Posts. Most of these posts have se7en crafts embedded within them. I chose this topic simply because when I look at what is being searched for on our blog at the moment – people are looking for things to do with their kids. Aha! Half the world is on summer holiday!

Here you go:

  1. Se7en Crafty Lamps: Most of these lamps work out great for summer evenings out doors… Candles, Lava Lamps, Paper Lanterns, Tin Can Lamps, Paper Box Lamps, Mini Pinata Lamps.
