Favorite Finds for Week 2 of 2010


I've had a few friends tell me that they love to read my blog, especially when I post links to other great blogs and crafty creations. So I thought I would be fun to feature my "Favorite Finds" I happen upon throughout the week. So here are my finds for this week...gotta love em!!

Old Book Wreath by Kristine McKay
Watched Kristine on Studio 5 this week...I'm a big fan of dictionary flowers and loved that she was tearing apart old books to make such cute ideas. Check out her
site to see more cute projects made from old books!

The Idea Room's Felt Heart Wreath
Seems like a lot of work, but soooo cute. She even created cute balls with this technique...I'm thinking red and green balls for my Christmas tree next year...yes?

Door Magnet Board from my neighbor Cassandra (Cassandra Designs)
Isn't she the coolest neighbor ever...I so wish she'd come help decorate my house!

Crayon Booklet on Etsy
I thought this would be a cute gift for my nieces and nephews...but I'm thinking I would make one (ha, ha).
Did you know that Mod Podge has a blog (click on image) !! And yes, I thinkg Mod Podge ROCKS!!


It's funny that I'd have three wreath examples on this blog post...I'm not a big wreath sort of gal. I have on my front door, one hanging on a hook above the piano, one in the half bath, one on my pantry door, three small ones in my family room and another one on the wall by my front door...oops, I guess I do have a lot of wreaths after all!!

Door Frame from The Pleated Poppy
Yes another great idea for an old door...I should really find me a "door" source...but wouldn't this be a cute headboard on a bed too!! Love the photos of course!

Tattertots & Jello: Sweatshirt Re-Fashion
Yes, I love alter shirts...or at least collecting the ideas. I think this is one I can work on for a gift for my daughter.
House of Faith Tower by Jennifer Gallacher
Go look at the close-up pictures of this projects (now)!! Years ago I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer and always loved her style, but boy I love her style even more these days...you have to admire this darling tower of LOVE!! I might actually copy this one for sure!!
Thanks for reading...I sure do love all these projects and what a great excuse to blog!!
