While I've got all this business going around in my mind it is hard to focus enough to do a blog post and I've been wanting to do just ONE more "best of" or "favorites" post. These are my happy projects. The ones that make me happy. I don't know where they come from. They just come. Actually, now that I think about it, one came from my THINGS I WILL MAKE board on Pinterest. But some of them just come out of my heart. I don't know how many there are. I'll just start and we'll find out...
Winning my Heart to Heart award is this sun that I whipped up one afternoon last spring. I say heart to heart because this quote spoke to my heart and yours.
When I say threw together I mean it. I have had to remake this several times because I didn't use the proper glue. I didn't seal it either so I will probably have to do some major touch-up on the rays this spring. I have to make one for my sister this year so I get a second chance to make it right.
The winner of the These Are So Cute, But What Do I Do With Them? award - my decoupage suitcases. I love them. I haven't been able to give them away or sell them. Hmm, maybe for enough money...
and this one
This one has instructions for redoing the lining on these old suitcases.
The Maybe If You Make It Twice You Can Get It Right award goes to - It Is Well. Go here to make it, then go here to make it right!
It was worth it to make this twice. Fortunately it was really simple.
The Most Loved award goes to my Pink Doughnut Pillow. Not most loved by me. Not most loved by you. Most loved by 20+ little first graders who covet their time sitting with the doughnut pillow in the reading nook in my sisters classroom.
There are funny stories about this pillow and I will be making another one for them to use next year which I will post at a later date. Oh yes, the above link is for the tutorial. Click here for her glamor shots. They are really special.
The award for Quality Of Life Enhancement goes to my vintage ceiling tile backspashes. I love them. They make me smile when I wash dishes and when I cook.
Well, it looks like there are five. Which one is your favorite?
There are probably more, but I need to get on with my day.
Hope you guys are recovering from your holidays and well into your plans for 2013. I feel the dark cloud of a basement cleaning
Make something wonderful today!
I'll probably party a little bit with these projects...
