Friday Favorites: 5-20-11

We are excited to get a mini break from the routine this weekend.  We are driving out to Palm Desert to stay in a house my hubby's family owns out there.  It is always a very relaxing trip--lots of pool time, naps, reading books, and spending time together as a family!  I can't wait. 

Before I pack, I wanted to share some fabulous ideas out in blog land this week.  I hope you enjoy and get inspiration for your own projects!

Lemon Tree Creations made the most beautiful wall art from scrapwood, a doormat and some spray paint.  It is gorgeous and looks expensive.  The beauty of this project is that you can do it with colors that coordinate with your decor.

A Couple of Craft Addicts made a knock-off of an Anthropologie inspired necklace.  It is really cute and extremely cheap to make.  Again, imagine how easy this would be to do in the colors you needed for a particular look or outfit. 

Me Sew Crazy made bustle backpacks and I can't stop thinking about them.  I don't sew, I only have sons, and I am in love.  Those of you with sewing skills and daughters--watch out.  This tutorial will have you running to the fabric store . . .

Cake Likes a Party gave us a post about making glow paint jars.  They look just like fire fly jars on a summer night--how fun for a backyard bbq or a 4th of July party!

This post is for my teacher friends and moms out there.  Richelle's Creative Corner gives a very easy tutorial on how to use fabric and a double curtain rod to hold books on the wall in a sling.  Find some coordinating fabric for the kids' rooms or your classroom and viola!  What a cute idea for a reading nook!

Hungry Homebody made lemony ricotta pancakes, and they look divine.  These are the kind of pancakes I would make for me, not my kiddos, though I am sure they would want some too. 

Finally, Never Slack Tide made graduation cupcakes.  Many of my friends have kiddos "graduating" from preschool or kindergarten.  These would be a fun little surprise for your big (or little) graduate.
