Five Favorites Friday

Friday, March 12, 2010

I can't believe it's Friday again already....
It feels like I just did this list, like seven or so days ago...

Let's see, what am I loving right now?
There are a bunch of things I am wanting to try my hand at...

Here are just a few...

1. These Fun Monogram Necklaces

The girlie's birthdays are right arond the corner, and their friends are a bit old for "goodie bags" but I bet they'd get a kick out of these neckaces.

2. This cute Black Zipper Bracelet

Cate saw these and fell in love... I think I'll make one and surprise her.

3. Ribbon Baby Blanket

I have a couple pregnant friends right now, and thought it might be fun to make them one of these... and maybe a couple matcing bibs....

4. A Spiffy Banner

I started making this tonight... I am making one for St. Patty's Day like the one shown, and one for Cate's 18th Birthday next week...

5. Cool Camera Pouches

Remember the camera strap I made Cate a few weeks back?

This one:
Well, since I have some fabric left, I think I may surprise her with a matching pouch...

PS. This post contains some birthday surprises... do you mind if we just keep them between us?
I knew you'd understand.

I am signing up for the Friday Follow Again...

  7. Cute ideas, if I weren't so un-crafty. It's not the actual craft I'm unable to manage, but the process of accumulating, organizing, and storing the materials to do stuff like that. I sure do love the look of a completed project, though.

  11. Like always love the crafty ideas... can't wait 'til I'm a stay-at-home mommy again! Right now I do not have the time or energy for anything crafty! lol!

  16. Rebecca,

    I love that necklace and the banner. I'm planning something for my children for St. Patrick’s Day so I may attempt a banner too. They deserve a party and I want to eat some cake :).

    I am visiting through FF. Thanks for visiting my blog, Milk & Honey Mommy, and for following. You're right. It is nice finding more and reading what other homeschoolers are doing.
