Fabric Book Slings

Fabric Book Slings

Nov 16

I was Pinterlust Pinterist-ing before bed the other night when I came across these hanging fabric book slings on Ohdeedoh… That’s when I had one of those, “I can make that” moments and immediately plunged head first into my fabric scrap basket to see if there was any worthwhile yardage I could convert into book slings for Salem’s room. My kids are big book lovers. We...

Create with Coffee Sacks

Nov 09

Whoever thought Daylight Savings Time was a great idea obviously never had children. My early-to-rise two year old is not only free from the confines of a crib as of last month, but ever since Sunday, he has been up and at ’em at FIVE. A.M. greeting me at my bedside.

I was perusing Martha’s brilliance when this image jumped off...

This clever idea has been making the rounds on Pinterest, but every since I saw these pre-planned {and pre-paid} monthly date envelopes, I’ve been coming up with ideas to make my own. Shannon Brown made these as a Christmas gift for her husband, but how cool would it be as an anniversary or a wedding gift? Each month of the year would have a different theme and a different adventure for...

Upon delivering my Cheer Up Basket to my friend yesterday, I noticed that her little girl was playing with a cupcake liner. And then it hit me! Cupcake Liner Garland! So adorable! And according to this 100 Layer Cake tutorial, it looks super easy to make. I am not planning any upcoming parties necessarily, but that doesn’t keep me from filing away some clever ideas for later.
