A new linky party: Monday Makers!

Monday is the beginning of a new week but it is not always welcomed by many people including me! I find it hard to get up and motivate myself for the new day and week.
I have terrible Mondayitis which start on Sunday afternoons. Having said that, I don't even work on Mondays, yet I get Mondayitis! I normally don't want to do anything other than bludging around in the house in my PJs and drinking tea. I don't even want to sew! Thank God I have a two year old in the house who pushes me to move my bum a little! Anyways.
I decided that I must break this cycle somehow. I had been thinking about ways to make myself active and productive. I start work on Wednesdays and for the rest of the week, I deeply regret that I have wasted my Monday by doing nothing. This is when the idea kicked in: Monday Makers!
Monday Makers! is a linky party which will go live every Monday as of next Monday, 25 August to motivate myself and you to be more active and creative on that day. So, each Monday, I will ask you to link and share your Monday project with me here and I will show you what I have in my plate. I will also feature one or two blogs here.
Here are the party rules:
Your project can be anything you start on that Monday as long as it makes you move and be active and creative: a new quilt, a knitting project, scrap booking, cross-stitching, baking-we don't mind yummy recipes!, a gardening project, painting your house!, tidying up the pantry!...This is your Monday and you are the maker of the day!
Grab the button from the side bar- I am still working on creating an HTML code to make it easier for you- or put a link back to me in your Monday post.
Please link to your specific post, not to your homepage: We would like to find your post easily.
Please take time to visit other links and leave a sweet comment: We love comments!
Share the photos of your finished Monday projects in your next link up- I am hoping you will come back again!: Who doesn't love a sweet, finished project or a "before-after" photo?
You don't have to be a follower of my blog, however; I wouldn't say no if you wanted to become one :-) Join and share as often as you want.

This is a challenge that I designed particularly for myself but I would love you to take part in it and be a part of curing the Mondayitis!

Till next time, keep sewing!


  1. Oh, I know what you mean. Mondays are quite busy for me, but not usually very creative. I am doing laundry, vacuuming, grocery shopping, setting the trash on the curb for pickup... lots of stuff, but very little creative mojo. I hope this is a really successful linky party and really inspires people. :)

  2. Such a great idea. I haven't done anything in ages.


Thank you for visiting my blog and taking time to leave a sweet comment! I respond to comments by email. I hope to see you again!
