If you have a blog and care to jump on the M-I-Y Monday bandwagon, leave me a message below, with your blogaddress or link to whatever project you are into, and I will link to your blogs/ideas in next Monday's post. I figure this is a good way to get the creative wheels a spinnin' and share some great ideas!
So here we go... 4 Awesome make-it-yourself projects....
1.I love this Vintage Pillowcase Apron idea! I am always looking for make-over inspiration for worn and well loved items around the house that are not being used, but are too sentimental to get rid of. Look at the the little bar-towel that is buttoned on--SUPER CUTE!
2. These Stoneware measuring spoons. Please indulge me that my next three ideas are pottery.... I will be back in the studio at the end of the month, and I
am bouncing out of my chair cant sit still super DUPER excited to play in the clay again. My friend Lindsay had these bright multi-colored ones, and a quick internet search revealed that they are from Anthropologie. No wonder I loved them. I swear I am on the same pottery wavelength as Anthropologie, its creepy. Sometimes I make stuff and a friend will be ask if I got it at said over-priced, whimsical retailer, and a quick look on their website will show that they are up to the same thing. I should probably ask them for a job. I especially love the little shell ones...very sweet.
3. Speaking of spoons, I am also loving this spoon rest idea. I will definitely be playing around with this form in the "Jazz up Your Kitchen" class I will be teaching. I love the simplicity of this one. Also from Anthropologie.
4. This magnetic fabric alphabet. Awesome idea! My wee kitchen helper will definitely be getting one of these when she is a little older... so much better than the plastic ones, and more kid-friendly imo. And two thumbs up for hiding the magnets inside the letters so little fingers can't pry them off and make them a choking/swallowing hazard.
Happy creating to all you crazy crafters out there!
