Time to craft!?

Apparently I am feeling the need to craft. I have spent only a few minutes blog hopping this morning and I am already in love with SEVERAL projects!!!! OIY. Maybe it is because I know how long my actual 'to do' list is and I am avoiding it with everything I have! Oh how I would love to spend the day in my craft room!! Ah well, life calls and must be answered. For now I will just have to be happy posting all these cute ideas here for my own personal 'later reference'. In the mean time I hope you enjoy them too!

We will start with my least favorite. lol.

Lace Votive Holder

I am sorta kinda not liking this idea 'AS IS.' I mean.... wouldn't lace sprayed with fabric softener be a bit flammable??? Here is why I am posting the idea anyway though. I think this would be cute used in other ways (and there is always the beauty of the electric votive candle). I would LOVE to do my daughters room in a modern Victorian theme. I think a string of these hanging on Christmas lights would be just adorable!!! Sadly I don't think Miss A. shares my love of the Victorian motif so it probably will never come to pass. Anyway, you can find the instructions to this craft HERE.

Next up - nice, easy, and festive! LOVE IT!

Heart Garland

I LOVE this idea! Totally easy, totally cute, and totally disposable!!! I am not into holiday decorating at the moment because I feel like I already have SO MUCH STUFF!!! I just used a good chunk of my storage space to put away the ONE ROOM of Christmas decorations I have! OIY. So this idea 'tickled me pink' because you could CHUCK IT IN THE CAN when V-day is over and next year have all new decor instead of the same 'ol same 'ol taking up space each year!!! My personal opinion of course! Any who, you can get the instructions for this HERE, on Serving Pink Lemonade. CUTE CUTE Site BTW!

Now these are my two FAVORITE FINDS!! I am all sorts of into creative storage these days! (yeah... did you read the paragraph above... can you tell that I am fighting with my storage room at the moment!!). These two ideas combine storage with decor, an idea that I am IN LOVE WITH!

Fabric Storage

How great is this idea!??? All your fabric out to see!!! LOVE IT! Of course if you had TONS of fabric this might not work so well.... but for me, who hates to sew but somehow seems to want to anyway, this is a great way to store my bits and pieces! And what a fun decor addition to the craft room!!! Get the EASY INSTRUCTIONS (that is my favorite part!!!) Here on Prudent Baby

And last but certainly not least.... my personal favorite (and unfortunately the hardest of today's great finds)
Game Board Storage!

Isn't this just the COOLEST IDEA EVER!!!!! Clear up a whole closet, have GREAT game room decor, and AWESOME functionality all at the SAME TIME!??? OH YEAH BABY!!! I AM "FUH-REAKING" out about this idea!!!!! Infarrantly Creative you ROCK MY WORLD! Get the great 'how to' for this project HERE. Now... to get my hands on a table saw.... OH KIERAN!!!!

Ok folks... that is all for today. I guess I have to go tackle that mountain of laundry now.... yay. Hope you have great crafty finds of your own to enjoy!

Your blog is darling. Thanks for featuring me. I'm glad you liked the heart garland. I agree--the best part is that you can throw it away when you're done with it.

I'm enjoying your new "attitude" to blogging. If you don't have time to blog, that's fine. This seems like a great way to store the craft ideas you find. And it's fun for me to read your found ideas, too!
