Words can’t possibly explain how much I love Mini-Eco’s printable gift wrap (among other things! What a great blog!)
I LOVE October. I think it’s safe to say this is my favorite month of the year. The weather is just right PLUS apple picking/cider PLUS pumpkins PLUS sweaters PLUS Halloween.
I could go on.
I had a blast making pumpkins last year, and this year I want to get a jump start on some really fun ideas. I wish I had time for all of these:
At least I can dream! How about you make one and tell me about it? Then I can live vicariously. Works for me.
If my world was perfect, I would spend just as much time making these DIY projects as I do staring at them on the internets. But it’s not perfect and what really happens is I pour over them for what seems like hours saying “ooo I wanna make that one” and next thing I know, the day is over.
So I leave it up to you to conquer my dreams and create! Now you don’t have to spend hours searching because I’m gonna make you a handy dandy list of fun DIYprojects I found throughout the week:
The work of Helen Musselwhite is truly inspiring. I not only want to own one of these pieces, I want to run out to the store and get some construction paper to play with!
Helen, based in the UK, hand cuts her illustrations out of paper and creates these beautiful scenes by stacking them in complex layers. Some are mounted in box frames and others, as you see here, are housed in glass jars.
I don’t know why, but I just looooove anything geek and these pillows by Craftsquatch (awesome shop name!) are simply perfect..and perfectly simple.
Each 12″x12″ square pillow is handcrafted out of soft fleece and polyester filling, making them nice and firm yet totally cozy. Not only that, but they’re affordable at only $15.99 – $24.99. (Some of them are a little more intricate than others, like the Digg pillow you see above).
I would love to see these mixed and matched on my bed or have a couple on my computer chair (it’s a little too big for me so I always need a pillow to prop myself up). You really need to check out all the different options this shop has, your bound to find just the right one for you.
Of course, I’ve got my eye on that Flickr pillow. It’s perfect!
