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.
