T-Shirt Art

Okay, could art be any simpler (is that a word?). Even I could do this... I think.
This falls under the category of this-little-t-shirt-is-too-cute-to-throw-away-but-what-do-I-do-with-it.
Problem solved! Stretch that cutie over a canvas, staple on the back and hang.
Personally, I think I might add some Stiffy to the fabric for more support.
Instructions, if you need them, from Country Home.
Found via Craft Blog.

Q's So Cute it Hurts Handmade

I love finding new blogs and I love it more when bloggers find me!
JQLine (from Maylasia) found me through Flickr! and I'm glad she did. She makes adorable hand-crafted items and her blog, Q's So Cute It Hurts, is a lot of fun and - cute!.
Check out these elephant coasters.
And how cute is this little bunny house key holder.
Love these? She also has an Etsy shop where you can purchase her items.

Thanks for finding me, JQLine!

Dreamiest Dream Catchers Ever!

I just had to show a picture of this dream catcher made by Lulu Carter. Just gorgeous! She calls this one "Little Boy Dreaming". Love the bird, the butterflies, the buttons, the colors, everything! This is one she made with a boy in mind but she has some other colors with names like "Sweet Dreaming", "Pretty Bird" and "Butterfly Wishes". Too sweet!
Lulu's blog is one I follow because she has such great ideas - like this one!
Little Boy Dreaming Dreamcatcher: $65 at Lulu's shop at Big Cartel

New Project Sneak Peak

Just so you'll know I am working on some things (while also working on painting the den, working on taxes, laundry and, oh yeah, my "real" job).
This project involves this box.
The box contained an Ott-Lite, which my mom gave me for Christmas (OMG, can I just tell you how much I needed that?!) It was such a nice, sturdy box. Like a lot of you I can't bring myself to throw away a perfectly good box like this and its shape reminded me of something...
Check back in a bit and I'll show you what I've been doing.
(2/22/09 update - see next post for the completed project.)

For Little Ole Me?

I truly don't know why they picked me but the guys over at Dajon Designs have awarded me with this Kreativ Blogger Award. It's such an honor and I can't tell you how grateful I am. I met them, along with so many other wonderful bloggers, through the One World One Heart Giveaway. Having visited many of the blogs participating in the OWOH Giveaway, they selected 2 blogs that were among their favorites. For mine, they said, "Great range of crafts and likes Christmas and Halloween just like us." I had to laugh! I do like Christmas and Halloween. The other one they picked is WhiMSy Love.
They make very nice custom greeting cards, like these.
Thank you very much, Dajon Designs.

Valentine's Fun with Matchboxes

This is probably one of the most popular links in Blogland but I thought I would post it any way because:
1) This graphic is so visually pleasing
2) It is a fun project
3) It is an easy project (you could do this with kids)
4) I love matchbox projects (I did some clay-wrapped boxes for Christmas stocking stuffers.)
Thanks to Inchmark for this terrific Valentine's Day project!
Link and instructions here.

Madison's Valentine's Day Card

Not the greatest drawing in the world but I kind of like the idea. You know we love elephants. That's her (Madison) being held up to see the balloon a little closer. Hope she likes it!

Valentine's Cake

I love Bakerella's blog. She takes the most beautiful photos of her creations it makes you want to reach in and grab each wonderful concoction!
This is a cake. Yes, a cake! The candy, the box - it's all edible.
Recipes and instructions for this cake (and all her creations) are always included and one of these days I may just try some of her recipes - but probably not this one. I'll leave this up to the experts like her.
I need to get busy making a couple of Valentine's Day cards. I don't send out a lot; just one or two but I like to send cards to the baby even if she can't read.
