Things I Wish I Had Time To Make

Life has been a bit busy lately and hasn’t left much time for playing online, but I wanted to share a few of my recent favorites.

First off is the amazing Spookable digital scrapbook kit from Dani Mogstad.  I wish I had more time to scrapbook because I would definitely be putting this one to use.

Crazy Aunt Purl’s Reversible Halloweenie Beanie is perfect for this time of year.  I wanted to make one of these for my son when he was little and never did.  Maybe my daughter will be the lucky recipient if I ever get around to it.

Need a baby gift idea? Mama’s Doodles Twiddler Tag Blankie would be perfect.  I know my 6-month-old daughter would love this right now.  She’s very interested in textures and the combination of bright textured tags on a soft little blankie would delight her to no end.

Another great baby gift idea comes from Gretchen at the Junk Mail Gems blog.  She posted a great tutorial for making a diaper clutch out of a placemat.  It’s perfect for carrying by itself on quick errands or sticking in the diaper bag.

Looking for some cute headbands that won’t break the bank?  Try these Thrift store tee headbands posted on Craftster.


The Perfect Clutch in Less Than an Hour

The holidays are on their way and you know what that means, right? Parties! Save a little cash this year by whipping up this cute little clutch by Bolsa Chica to match all your pretty party dresses. I haven’t tried it out yet, but the tutorial looks very simple and can be completed in less than an hour. I’m thinking it would also make some great hand made gifts as well. (Did you know there’s only 12 weeks until Christmas?)

After you check out the tutorial, take a look at the Bolsa Chica Etsy site as well.  She has some adorable purses over there that I would be buying up if I had the extra money right now.

Blissfully Linking

Remember when I told you about the Blissfully Domestic re-launch?  They had a few hiccups along the way, but now the site is up and running smoothly.  The ladies over at Blissfully Domestic are posting some absolutely great content and I can’t seem to stay away.  They pretty much have a channel for every one of my interests so there’s always something for me to read.  And what’s even better?  I have my very first post up on the Creative Bliss channel today.  You should go read it and leave me a comment.  Really, you should.  You don’t want to make me beg do you?  I’m posting with some very crafty ladies over there and I want to feel like I belong.

(If you subscribe here, you’ve probably already seen the post because I cheated a little this time and used something I’d already written.  I promise I won’t be duplicating posts every time.  I was just a little short on time and craftiness this time around!)

Something Old Becomes New Again


Is this thing on?

Oh, hi there.  Glad to see someone is still checking in here even though I haven’t updated in over a week.  I’ve been a little busy doing some scholarly research about teenage vampires.  That *cough* research has kept me from doing much of anything else including laundry, housecleaning, or crafts.  Fortunately, my sister has the rest of my books so I can’t read any more until I get them back in my possession this weekend.

So, while I have a few spare moments, I wanted to share a few of my favorite finds this week.  I always dreamed of making cute little dresses and hair accessories for my little girl and these crafty ladies are making it so easy for me.  The best thing about all three of the fun sewing tutorials I discovered this week is that they all re-purpose old items to create something fun and new.

  • These easy headbands from Maya Made are just perfect.  Not only do they re-use old t-shirts, but you can custom size them.  Store bought headbands never seem to fit me right so I can’t wait to make a few of these for myself.
  • A Room Somewhere has a great tutorial for the popular pillowcase dresses.  Of course using an old pillowcase gives more of a vintage look, but she gives directions to make it out of regular fabric too.  I’m hoping to make a couple of these in a mini version for my baby girl next summer.
  • Over at The Long Thread there’s a super easy tutorial for some adorable t-shirt dresses.  I know a couple of little girls that would look very cute in them!

Simple Art Tote

I’m still catching up from our trip to Dallas last weekend and haven’t had time to even thing about being crafty this week.  I have some projects waiting for me as soon as I find some spare time, but until I can get to them I’ll continue sharing some great things from around the web.

I found this simple art tote bag over on Five Flowers.  I’m always stuck when it comes to birthday gift ideas and this one is just perfect.  When I saw it I had one of those, “Duh, why didn’t I think of that?” moments.  My nieces and nephews can expect to receive one of these filled with art supplies when their birthdays come around again!
