Music Wednesday!

This week I give you one of the best oldies out there. Portishead’s Glory Box, it’s a perfect little song for the slow beginning to the week and the weird weather out there. Just press play and enjoy ūüôā


Pin it with Style

Last week after Turkey day we had a mini class to make some fabulous fabric boards.  The task was big, but the girls delivered.  Each one brought their A game and the boards was a true reflection of the bright personalities.  We had some good laughs and the boards were awesome.

Gotta repeat this one!

Some Kyut Hookin

I love the lion brand website for great free patterns like these super quick and ueber cute little tweets.

Lovin these bows.  Thinkin you could do them in printed fabric strips as well. Check at the love of blog therapy.


Show your buds some love

What a great quick project to make, and basically what teen on your list wouldn’t love love love. ¬†You know what? Scratch that. Anyone on your list would love this. ¬†Check it here from¬†dog under my desk.


Now, we all love playing with felt. ¬†Well, if you think about it, it comes in great colors (especially the beautiful collection from Heather Bailey), it doesn’t fray and it is super easy to sew and layer. ¬†So you cut out a heart and a few doo dads and voila you got something cute. ¬†This lady however from beedeebabee, takes the whole felt thing to a whole different label. ¬†Check it. ¬†Pretty Ahmazin’

Fabric Photo Transfer

There are a few different ways of getting a photo on fabric. ¬† This is a great method via the crafty gal at a “Beautiful Mess.” ¬†

Advent Goodness

Since my 17 year old was little I have been making some version of an advent calendar.  Everthing from bags, to boxes to little drawers.  When the goodies have been too big to fit, I would give a little hint and sometimes stump her for the whole day.  This is a great simple idea from the Mary France Project that has a great Recycling factor.

Birthday Fashionistas

We’ve had quite a run of our “Project Runway” birthdays lately. ¬†This is the most recent from the weekend. ¬†The girls are set in groups and get a conglomeration of doodads with tee shirt and have to use everything and come up with an outfit. ¬†The girls really brought their creativity and the ideas were running wild. Game on! ¬† At the end the 3 groups awed us with a mini fashion show. ¬†Loved all the results!

Following on the theme of crafty boys, here is a great craft idea for a boy (or girl).  I would do this with my favorite wonder-under.  Very fun idea from Random Thoughts of a Supermom.
