Creative High Party

I can't locate my source for this idea right now. If I do I will let you know. If you know, please tell me. I know I found it on a blog I read and I know she did it as a summer project with her children and I know Miss Lee gave her the idea. :)

I know that I told you I would give you more details on lapbooks. Hm. I spent so much time finding components that I didn't keep track of the details. I will try really hard to give you more information soon. :) This is a lapbook that C made for moths and butterflies.

Your Creative Highs

I just love this wire cloche that Gail at Can't Stop Making Things made. I've got some chicken wire that I am considering.

The Rules:

1. Link to your specific post, not the main page of your blog. Link to something you made that shows off your creative genius; something that gave you a creative high kind of like the endorphin rush that runners talk about. It can be an old post or a new post but it needs to be something you made.

2. Give your entry a descriptive title.

3. Use my button to link back to the party or add a text link in your post.

4. I can't accept links to etsy shops or online stores but I will accept parties and give-a-ways.

5. By entering your link, you are giving me permission to use any part of your post including pictures in a spotlight at Those Northern Skies (appropriate credit and links will be given to you and your blog of course).

The Prizes:

1. Every Friday at the next party, I will highlight my favorite posts from the previous week.

2. My favorite entrant of the week will win an advertisement in my sidebar free of
charge for one month (four weeks). If you do not have a shop, I can put your blog button up or if you would rather I can put up a button for your favorite charity.

3. In addition, for those who make a project inspired by one of my projects or one of my tutorials, I will pick one winner a month and they will get to keep an advertisement in my sidebar for two months. Plus all inspired entrants will be part of a featured post at the end of the month.


  1. Thanks for hosting your great party, Melissa! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Okay, I am glad I finally got over here. It seems like I have been missing your party the last few weeks. Hope you are doing well!

    Have a great weekend.

  3. I love the butterfly lap book - esp. the way the cover fits together like a puzzle - so charming!

  4. Thanks for your sweet comments on my big ole hutches...I love all the creative things going on here, going to check some out! Lezlee

  5. Hey Melissa, I have linked up to your party! Yay! Still have to put your linky party button on my "I'm Linking" page but going to do that RIGHT now... Thanks for having me!

  6. Love the butterfly projects. So pretty and the lap book idea is great.

  7. Thanks so much for hosting this!!!

  8. I love this idea! Your comment on my blog completely cracked me up. You are so funny! I'll see you at your party on Friday! (hugs) Lisa~

  9. Love the butterfly life cycle project. My munchkin would like it. Last month we were watching the progress of the monarchs on the milk weed in my In-Laws field. Seemed they got a late start. We'll have to go out and check again, especially after the frost!! Thanks for the party!!

  10. I remember when my oldest did a similar project at school! Loved it

  11. Cool idea! My daughter would love this. She is obsessed with the human body and all its systems. This could work great with all sorts of themes.

  12. I saw that pasta butterfly life cycle idea too, can't remember where though - sorry! It is a great idea.

  13. What a fun way to learn. I agree-- it could easily be used to learn about all sorts of things!!

  14. I just posted about the butterfly life cycle and linked it to this post. Thanks for the lovely idea.
