Showing Off – my picks

Before we get to the showing off, I have to share something monumental – someone recognized me because of this blog!! (If you’re reading right now, so sorry I didn’t even ask your name – next time I’ll be prepared and ask names and take pictures! I think I must have been stunned!)  She saw me at the library, killing time while my 1st grader was at piano lessons.  She said I probably get this all the time – but it was a first and I was so excited!  I even called Trevor to tell him I was a celebrity.

So anyways, moving on to YOU celebrities and YOUR craftiness…..

There were a couple of ereader cases, one from Young and Crafty and one from Mommy by Day Crafter by Night – both are really cute so check both sites out.  I have a Tab that I LOVE and it works as an ereader, but I haven’t made it a case yet because that would cover up the camera part.  Anyone have a solution to that problem?


Crafting in the Rain covered her worn out boots in duct tape to give them new life.  I am making a mental note of this for my girls’ boots – they’re always dying off before they outgrow them….

Do you have a scarf needing a purpose?  NapTime Crafters made one into leggings – what a great idea!

I love this stenciled tabletop over at Ugly Duckling – – stencils are all the rage, and I love them!
There is a great bedroom redo over at Creatively Living – – remember when I was redoing my bedroom?  well, progress stalled, so it’s nice to get motivation to finish!

AvSusanne used denium to cover a footstool – great idea:

Did you make magazine beads growing up?? I did!  Red Ted’s Art Blog shows you how…

I love this tree block over at Mommy for Reals - great scrap choices!

All finished! Here's Sunni's block!

SugarTart Crafts made some pattern weights – that’s on my to-do list!  Hers are so cute, and so simple!

The Shady Porch made a flower vase out of buttons – oh how I wish I had tons of buttons!!

I have wanted to try out Cathedral Windows, but they seem so intimidating – a pillow is a great way to do a small amount.  Love this over at About Blogging Time:

PACountry Crafts made a Pinkalicious Dress – super cute!

And you gals and your zig zag crochet – – every time I see one I want to make it more and more!  This is from Sweet Bee Buzzings

And for a quilt shout-out, how about this amazing one from The Root Cellar - wow!

    Congrats on being recognized! That’s gotta be such a cool feeling.

    Thanks too for featuring my pattern weights. Not only are they great for cutting out patterns, but I’ve found that they also keep toddlers entertained ; )

    That would be so much fun! I would love to get to know some others in our area that love crafting and sewing as much as I do! I’m going to go make some of those cute felt heart hair bows now, my daughter WILL be wearing them for maybe the whole month of February, love them!
