Brief Bits

This is what happens when I get busy... too many good things to share! My remarks will be short, but here's a quick round-up of what I've found on the web recently that got my creative juices flowin':

(Click on pic above to see it larger.)

1.  From Diary of a Quilter - Quilted Table Runner
I need something new on my kitchen table.  The current piece is tired.  I'd love to pull off one of these to sit beneath a potted plant.

2.  From pinksuedeshoe - A Little [Embroidered] Love Note
So adorable!  Love how she even stitched on the notebook paper lines.  {sigh.}

3.  From Maggie Muggins Designs - Chalk Mat with Storage Pocket
Fun idea for a "quiet" toy!  Great and easy-to-follow tutorial, too.  Grandma Rogers??  ;)

4.  From Make It and Love It - Raspberry Lemonade Slushy
This looks so refreshing for a hot summer day!  Definitely want to try making these drinks.

5.  From Spearmint Baby - Children's Bathroom
Click over to see this photo larger...  such a chic space!  Love the trough sink with the board & batten.  The bright pop of teal is so much fun!

6.  From Megity's Handmade - Butterfly and Rocket Chandeliers
LOVE these...  gives me ideas for other motifs, even.  So cute!

7.  From Giver's Log - Anniversary Box
This is a post about one of her sponsors, but I love the idea of this gift for a wedding... or even a baby shower.  Have the guests write notes, words of wisdom, well wishes to be opened one at a time on each anniversary.

8.  From Apartment Therapy - Magnetic Map Board
I've been thinking I need a magnetic board, and I really like this idea.  Just mod-podge a map on a piece of metal... OKAY!  This would be a great piece in an office or even a little boys' room.

9.  From Tatertots & Jello - Make Giant Bubbles
As a kid, I remember attempting something like this one summer.  So much fun!  Going to keep this idea for the years to come.

10.  From eighteen25 - Lunch Box Love Notes
I hope to be one of those moms that sends notes in their kids' lunches.  Cute, free printable for your own lunch box loveys available on her post.

11.  From Moda Bake Shop - Faux Cami & Shannon Makes Stuff - Plunging Neckline Cover-Up
I have a few camis that I employ on those low-necked shirts, but this clever idea sounds even better - the coverage without the hot layers.  So genius!

12.  From Creations by Kara - Framed Monogram
I have a soft spot for monograms these days.  Love her idea to mount an open frame around a monogram on the wall - makes it so much more serious and permanent... and fills in more of the wall! 

13.  From Our Humble A{Bowe}d - Weekend Painting: Custom Artwork
I love this idea... painting leaf silhouettes on a board (or even canvas) to create a custom piece to hang in your home - modern, simple...  I love it!

14.  From Picky Palate - Chocolate Cake S'Mores Cookies
Do I need to say s'more?  YUM!

15.  From According to Kelly - Mason Jar Cupcakes
Such an adorable gift idea!  Would make cute Christmas or Valentine's gifts.  I'm thinking that a single cake mix would give you enough for 12 mason jar cupcakes in 8 oz. jars.  I LOVE ideas that are easy to mass produce!

16.  From Mrs. Bettie Rocker - Pecan Chicken
This 5-ingredient dish looks delicious!  Definitely in my to-be-tried file.

17.  From Yesterday on Tuesday - Banana Split Ice Cream Cake
Cake + Banana Split = heaven!  Sounds like the perfect birthday treat!

18.  From My Authentic Blend of 23 Flavors - Baby Name Sign
Talk about taking a cute idea and making it your own...  an even better idea.  My favorite part is the orange letter "a"... too cute!

19.  From Craft Cuts - Wood Wall Letter Tiles
As soon as I figure out which words I want to spell out, I'm going to order myself some of these.  Available in sizes from 3" - 9" square.  They'd make a great piece for a family room or game room.

20.  From The Purl Bee - Little Boy's Tie & From Say Yes to Hoboken - Simple Toddler's Bowtie
Adorable and simple tutorials to make custom neckwear for your little guy!

21.  From Ohdeedoh - Amazing Animal Coat Rack
One of my favorite ideas ever!  How cute is this??  I'll likely be chopping apart some brand new animals to pull it off for the next rendition of Connor's room.

22.  From Make it Do - Lovely Hair Clip Flowers
How sweet are these little clips??  Love it!  Looks easy to do, too.  Great way to pull a little outfit all together.

23.  From Simply Modern Mom - Homemade Cream Puffs
My mouth won't stop watering over these!  Divine!

24.  From Little Apartment on the Prairie - Baby Food Jar Light Strand
We go through a lot of baby food jars in this house.  And, while they get recycled, I still feel a bit guilty just throwing them out every day.  LOVE this idea to up-cycle them into something pretty!

25.  From Deck the Halls of Home with JOY - Quilt Bulletin Board
This is a great idea for saving a ratty quilt, or "preserving" a keepsake.  This has got me wondering how much of my Grandma's quilt is left (which was shared into pieces by her children after she passed).

26.  From Kara's Korner - You've Got Mail: Holder
Every home needs an "exit strip" like this one.  So clever!  Now, if only I had an actual mud room...

So, there you have it... 26 great finds.  {whew!}  I hope something here inspires you, too!
