Brief Bits

Lots of fun seasonal ideas this time around.  Here's a quick round-up of what I've found on the web recently that got my creative juices flowin':

1.  From eighteen25 - Fluffy Spider Tutorial
Can't stand the live ones, but this one made of yarn and pipe cleaners is pretty darn cute!  Love how it's displayed, hung from a string.

2.  Mindy Gledhill - Anchor
Love, love, LOVE this album.  If you enjoy bright, melancholy music, à la Ingrid Michaelson, Meiko, or A Fine Frenzy (think Grey's Anatomy -type music), you will like Mindy's music.  (This is not church pop, never fear.)  I downloaded it a few weeks ago, and it's been keeping me company late at night while on the computer... every.single.night.  I think my favorite is the title track, Anchor.

3.  From Funky Polkadot Giraffe - Candy Corn Bunting
There are a lot of candy corn buntings floating around the craft blogs these days...  this one is by far my favorite.  So cute!  ...and easy enough, I could probably make it.

4.  From Singing with Birds - Crème Brûlée Cheesecake Bars
I love me some crème brûlée... pair it with cheesecake and I've died and gone to heaven. We're having company in a few weeks, and I think I may have to use that as an excuse to give these a try!

5.  From Inspiring Creations - Ribbon Pumpkin
I think I like white pumpkins the best, and I really like this idea of lining the pumpkin with ribbon - so cute!

6.  From Martha's Crafts Department - Mail a Paper Heart Garland
I adore this simple idea!  And I'm thinking I'll modify it a bit for our Valentines next year.  Here's what we did last year.

7.  From Tasty Kitchen - Pecan Pie Muffins
Growing up in Texas, pecans and the delicious pies to be made with them were plentiful.  In fact, I'm already salivating over the delicious pecan pie we're sure to enjoy on Thanksgiving Day.  Maybe I'll have to try these yummies to tide me over until then.

8.  From Lu Bird Baby - Heads up on TJ's Pumpkin Pancake and Waffle Mix 
Pumpkin, glorious pumpkin!  I visited a local Trader Joe's last weekend, and they didn't have this mix in yet...  but I did pick up a box of their pumpkin bread mix.  I keep forgetting to check at the grocery store, but did you know there's a pumpkin shortage this year?  I'll be on the hunt for canned pumpkin for sure!  One of my favorite things to make is Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread - it just isn't Fall without it.

9.  From A Little Lovely - Fall Wreath Tutorial
The back of my front door desperately needs something new.  A simple wreath like this would be perfect!  I love the sparseness of the flowers, so that you can still see the grapevine form underneath it.

10.  From Lifehacker - Fruit Fly Trap
Oh how I wish I had found this just 2 weeks ago!  I brought fruit flies home with me after a trip to the grocery store, and then had to ban fresh fruit on the counter (ie. melons, peaches, etc.) until they were killed all gone.  So, we haven't enjoyed much of nature's late summer bounty this year.  And to think all I needed was a little apple cider vinegar and dish soap.  Next year...

11.  From Just Another Day in Paradise - Old MacDonald Puppets
How adorable are these?!?  Larissa generously has provided her patterns and a tutorial for all 9 puppets - WOW.  Made with felt, a sewing machine, and a lot of love... I'm excited to give these a try (or convince Grandma Rogers to).  ;)

12.  From A Crafty Escape - Halloween Countdown Chain
Such a clever idea to make the traditional countdown chain a little more permanent and reusable!  Each link is made of fabric and velcro - love it.

13.  From Sew Totally Smitten - Candy Corn Door Hanging
Honestly, I can't stand the taste or texture of candy corn... but I think this door hanging is really fun!  Amber's candy corn is made of canvas, and then her stripes are painted on with fabric paint - genius.

So, there you have it... 13 great finds. I hope something here inspires you, too!
