Here are a few of the many things I found this week that I've added to my to do list:
Mrs. Owens at A Pumpkin and a Princess showed us how to make this adorable candy dish that looks like a gumball machine. Isn't this the cutest? I cannot believe this is just a terracotta pot and saucer and a votive holder! I'm so making this because I don't like to leave open candy (like candy corn or M&M's) uncovered.
Jenn over at Crafting for My Sanity made these shabby chic pumpkins with 2"x4"s. I have seen a ton of 2"x4" pumpkins around blogland, but these are the chicest! I love how she added rub on transfers to give them a shabby feel and the raffia is the perfect finishing touch on top.
Michele over at The Scrap Shoppe showed us an adorable altered lunch box that her friend Amy made to hold all of her little one's goodies from the hospital. What a fantastic keepsake! I'm definitely going to have to make a cool, boy one and put Kason's coming home outfit and hat inside. :)
Sammy at Scraps N' Strings gave us a wonderful tutorial on how to make a tag along stuffed lion. I love this lion's cute little face, fuzzy mane, and how he is essentially a body pillow for her little guy. I especially love that here little guy, Finn, named his lion Phil. Too cute! This tutorial could easily be adapted to many different animals. I wonder what Kason's favorite animal will be. :)
Susan from Living with Punks made this insanely adorable ruffle button scarf. If I ever have a little girl, she will sport one or two (or five) of these. ...and if I don't have a little girl, I'll totally rock it. :) LOL! On a side note, I'm pretty positive this little beauty has her model pose down.
Wishing you a terrific Tuesday!
