Create a cork board map and then use it to be creative, post notes or keep track of all the places you’ve been or want to be.
Free printable! birthday banner or cupcake accessories. Adorable. I love the colors. And the banner. All things banner.
Free art! Print this alphabet print and then frame it or post it to a wall. No need to limit this color gem to a nursery. I’d use it in my laundry room. Nice little pop of color and I love the lines of the letters.
Another Printable! A little notecard and envelope. Now there’s no excuse for not getting those Thank You cards out – the office supply store might close at 5 like a loser, but your printer should be a full service stationary maker at 1 am when you remember that your mother is coming for dinner and she’s going to mention how good your sister is at getting out those Thank You’s. (Feel free to boast that you even DIY’d them. She might not know how to handle that one.)
All Wonder is Not Lost free printable art. This print makes me imagine myself walking down the streets of Spain or some other place I’ve always wanted to go, wanted to be.
Redo a closet tutorial, photos of the process and all. It’s gorgeous. I think this is genius and it looks so beautiful. Now I’m going to be looking for closets and small spaces to make a nook out of.
Make a play tent out of sheets Yes and yes. Such a great idea and it looks easy!
It’s that time of year, the marshmallow gun makes it’s entrance Happy Summer! Make these to bring to picnics and barbeque’s. I promise you won’t hear whining about all the unfairness of the event because Billy wouldn’t let your child play with the XBox. Whining about being pelted with ammo that they can eat? I’m guessing not. But bring goggles for the eyes. (And probably best for kids 5 and over.)
Easy sewable softies I’m a huge advocate for having a “To-Go” back pack or bag with toys, books and games exclusively for traveling in the car or waiting for your table in a restaurant. Toys and books that never leave the To-Go bag because it’s “special” to go … makes them think it’s a big deal. Any way, these would be a great addition for when some of the toys or games are over used and losing their appeal. Plus? Soft animals that don’t make noise and piss off parents in the front seat? Um, you just struck gold.
Printable watermelon banner for the deck and your late night summer bonfires. Or birthdays, holidays and permanent (and cheap) decor.
Just in time, Change of Address Cards Free printable. Guess who’s going to use these? Grandma, your mailbox will be occupied soon!
Mustaches cupcakes I’m a little smitten with all-things-mustache lately. Pretty sure I need to do a mustache inspired party. WHICH!??! UM, IDEA!! #77.
Super cute DIY hair pieces use a zipper to make flowers! It looks beaded and detailed without trying. Yay!
Turn your run of the mill canning jars and vases into something spectacular and pseudo vintage. Everyone wants the turquoisey colored jars … and they pay plenty for them. Except you, you smarty pants, you make your own and save the dough and no one has to know.
Oh I love the internet. It gives me DIY’s and ideas like this one. Make your own antlers to hang. I can see this looking really good in a themed bedroom, a boys? Or an office if done in white or ivory. They sell the cardboard ones so why not make your own pattern and go from there?
A sailors knot door stop or paper weight or again, something to use as inexpensive decor. Make a few of these and use them instead of those balls people feel bowls with to set on their coffee table. Or hang a trio of them on a wall. You could even paint them to your liking … oh ideas!
A classic chandelier for celebrations they used this for a birthday but this could be a great wedding add-on as well.
A baby shower game free printable. A fun, and timeless feel makes this an easy game to pitch to the 3 girlfriends planning your baby shower who do not want to play any games thankyouverymuch.
Spare books make beautiful shelves if you’re a garage saler and need some shelves, you can generally pick up great looking old books for 10 cents to one dollar … and then use them to make these. Viola!
Summer tags free printable … you might not be able to see the image (I can’t) but you can still download them and they’re great!
Free printable gift tags POLKA DOTS!
A great guest book idea and? You guessed it, it’s a free printable. Now that my daughter is writing more and more I love this idea as a way to capture her hand writing every month for a year or two so we can see the progress as she grows. A book in progress, maybe?
Windsocks a great craft for kids, with them.
Embroider your child’s art ok, ok. I haven’t done any embroidering yet … SHAME. Because I love to link to patterns and ideas because I HAVE PLANS to one day be a really good embroiderer…erer. Any way. I’m pretty sure that this is the cherry on top. Now I must.
Sew an ocean-liner that will not sink. Ok, it will … if you put it in the bath, but it won’t be tragic.
A faux roman shade NO SEWING. This rocks.
