While flipping through my copy of Romantic Country I came across this lovely fall centerpiece idea!
I was inspired and decided to get a little creative. I pulled out all kinds of fall goodies and a couple of pedestal cake stands and made this.
My recent jaunts around the internet have yielded a few wonderful websites and cool ideas that demanded to be shared.
The folks at leethal.net have put together a year of weekly diy roundups! So many projects and ideas to explore, so little time. Click here to have fun and be inspired!
Next up is the World of Mod Podge! I enjoy crafting and creating with this medium and was excited and thrilled to find a blog dedicated to it. You will find all kinds of projects and information in one place. I have only skimmed the surface of this wonderful resource and can’t wait to dig deeper!
I have kept various recipes for homemade play dough over the years. Its fun for the nieces and nephews and great for bible class. These receipes all required the use of the stove. Imagine my excitement at finding a receipe for microwave playdough! Tracy at Suddenly I See was gracious enough to share this receipe which is simple and fun. Thanks Tracy!
I have saved the best for last. I found ihanna and a kindred spirit all at once. Hanna has a wonderful, happy, joyful, creative blog that you simply must visit. You’ll find downloads, tutorials, articles, books, and so much more. Be sure to check out her 100 Ideas to Spark you into Creative Action.
Well, that’s all for now. Click away, be inspired, be joyful, and have a happy summer!
I love finding tutorials on the internet and getting the opportunity to try new things. Rachel Klein at One Pretty Thing has made it so much easier to find cool tutorials and diy projects. Rachel and her kitties scour the world wide web in search of tutorials and then share them with all of us in a blog format. One can find all kinds of things from magazine bows to dollar bill origami to sewing projects. Rachel also accepts submissions from anyone with a tutorial of their own.
Bread & Honey has a wonderful tutorial showing you how to make these tasty little cakes. I haven’t had opportunity to try them yet. However, I can’t imagine how they could be anything but good.
I just stumbled upon this website moments ago and absolutely love it! The author, clockworkpink, has done an excellent job of scouring the web for the coolest of crafts. I love the cupcake scarf and the invisible book shelf mentioned in the first two blog posts. My favorite thing from page 1 simply has to be these Muppet head glasses holders.
I only wish I knew how to crochet. After seeing these and the aforementioned cupcake scarf I just may have to learn. I highly recommend this wonderful, fun site. Click here to visit The Best of DIY.
As many of you know, hubby and I have recently begun collecting and listening to old records. We have really enjoyed the old music and the sound of the vinyl as well as the hunt for old albums. While perusing the ideas on DIYLife, I ran across these bookends. I immediately thought, “Cool!” This was followed by, “How sad.” I honestly don’t know whether to hate it or love it.
