Favorite Finds for the 11th Week of 2010

Sorry I'm running late on posting for the week...but better late, then never!

New Find on Etsy
Loved Polka Dot Bungalow had the cutest flower creations...clips for your shoes, ruffled onesies, hair clips, shirt clips and more. Check it out...

Purse it!

Idea Door Bead Board Wreath Hanging
Loved this because it's totally my colors...but loved it even more because she shows you how to create this step-by-step and trust me, it's got to be cheaper then the ones I've purchased at Swiss Days (wink)!

Little Birdie Secrets
Those of you that know me and follow this blog know that I love fabric and paper flowers...and being the collector of papers and such I love them for paper crafting and scrapbooking even more. Well the very amazing Little Birdie Secrets blog featured a couple of video tutorials recently that I couldn't resist sharing.

Favorite Finds for the 10th Week of 2010

With my daughter's 13th birthday and all that was involved there, I haven't spent a ton of time collection "favorite finds" this week. So this post is short...

Cutest Flowers by Janet
These little darlings were created by my VERY talented friend Janet. Regretfully she's a little technology shy and I've yet to talk her into selling these on Etsy or a blog...maybe you could offer her some encouragement. Otherwise the only way to get your hands on any of her amazing creations is to visit local boutiques.

Covered Notebooks
These gems are sold over at the Pleated Poppy website and each covered notebook comes with a composition notebook and is removable to replace the notebook once it's filled. The book closes with a button and elastic closure and has a pocket on the inside flap for pens/pencils. You know me, I love a cute notebook!!

Tulle Corsage Embellished Tee by Blue Cricket
You all know I'm a sucker for embellished t-shirts and even more for tutorials. I ho…

Favorite Finds for the 9th Week of 2010

Welcome to this weeks favorite finds...
Porch Swing
If I had a porch this is the swing that would be there! I found this on Little NannyGoat Blog and she shows a before and after picture. It's amazing how much a coat of paint and cute pillows make a project work!!
Last Weeks Blog WinnerCongrats to Tammy Blaisdell...she was selected using to make it FAIR! And lucky for her only 8 people left comments...although many friends and fans contacted me directly to tell me they DO READ my blog...but apparently don't know how to leave comments for drawings (we'll work on that). Anyway, Tammy I'll drop by your cute notebooks and surprise jeweled keychain (you'll love it - or you can regift it).
Pebbles Inc ChipsI always thought it would be cute to put a bunch of chipboard pieces in a bag and call them a "Bag O Chips" or something like that. So boy was I excited to see Pebbles finally did it!! They carry these at my local Roberts Craft Store and include 70 pi…

One of my Favorite Projects

A friend of mine asked me the other day what my favorite project was that I'd ever created and although there have been many, there is one that I still go back to years later and love! she asked me to post it, so the rest of you get the benefit of seeing this too. It's a mini album that I created with a 4x6" board book album that tells all about my daughter turning 8 years old.

So it's been about 5 years since I created this...and I don't want to redo it (good sign for a scrapbooker). What was your favorite thing you ever scrapbooked???

Favorite Finds for the 8th Week of 2010

If anything, you at least know what week we're on for 2010 by visiting me blog each week...ha, ha! I've really enjoyed doing this each week and hope that unlike me Project 365, that soon became Project 52 and then Project 12...that I stick with it throughout the year. I'm always online checking out crafty people that I should at least pass along the great things I find. And to prove that I actually have people reading my blog, I decided to offer a give away on todays post and everyone IS ELIGIBLE!
Soddered CharmsSaturday I went shopping with my mom to a darling little place in Salt Lake called Gardner Village. But what struck me was the fact that almost every shop sold these soddered charms in one form or another. They ranged in price from $20-50 (which I as a crafter I think is too much). Of course my daughter loved the New Moon inspired charms. Here's a cute shop on Etsythat has more reasonably priced charms! Just FYI...I'm going to learn how to make my own (I'…
