Fun Blog Finds...

Despite our upcoming move, I have been feeling crafty lately and have turned to the internet for some inspiration. I recently discovered (some by way of my sister-in-law Bobbi) a couple of blogs that I instantly fell in love with and felt like mentioning, along with some craft ideas that totally rock my crafting world...
While these projects will have to wait until I can get my hands on a sewing machine, they really inspired me to be better about reusing old clothing. This artist smock is adorable and is accompanied by step-by-step instructions on how to make it. The dresses are refurbished skirts and/or shirts...seriously, how fabulous is that?!

This gal is absolutely amazing...she does a lot of furniture refurbishing, which I dream of doing when we finally get into a home of our own, and she's actually pretty funny as she walks you through her projects....great inspiration mixed with occasional chuckles - my idea of a great blog!

I am amazed at the transformation from the rusty old desks she found on craigslist to the adorable chalkboard desks seen in the second picture. And the necklaces are made from scrapbook paper, scrabble tiles, and good ol' modge podge - sounds quick and easy to me!

Somewhat Simple is a really great site because it provides inspiration for so many different areas of your life...not just sewing, not just crafting...but also cleaning, cooking, and kids' activities. Here are some crafts that I am dying to try...

I hope to be back in the next couple of days with pictures of completed projects...but in the meantime, click on the header images for each blog so you can check out their total fabulousness.
