It’s really been fun getting back in the swing of things around here! The problem is now that everyone in our family is healthy again, and I’m popping up every morning with enough energy to get me through the day, I keep seeing all kinds of projects that I want to tackle . . . I wear myself out just thinking about them. Every week when I scroll through all of the links for the Favorite Things Blog Hop, I am almost always discovering new inspiration for fiber art DIY projects as well as sewing and home decor ideas. This week was no exception – I came across these adorable buntings and garlands and just had to check out the blog posts to see how they made those cute things. I’ve made banners before, but mostly with pretty paper, ribbons, lace, buttons and other ephemera, so the ones made out of fabric seem to be calling my name!
Then, when I discovered Debby’s Shabby Cuff Bracelet, well, I just had to pop on over to her blog to see what she made from her thrift store treasure. Having made quite a few fiber art cuff bracelets myself, I am always impressed to see how other artists interpret this kind of creation. I love her pink velvet and pearls on her cuff bracelet, and now I’m inspired to make a few more of my own. Sometimes I can’t tell if it is a good thing or not to get all of this inspiration to make more DIY projects, when I can’t quite keep up with the ones I’m already working on – but it sure is fun to see what other bloggers are doing.
Of course, it is also fun to check out the seasonal recipes, but since I’m not much of a cook (well, that’s not quite true . . . . I don’t cook at all unless I absolutely have to, and with a jar of peanut butter and a loaf bread in the house, that is not very often!) that’s as far as I get with checking out the blogs with those amazing recipes. Like Marilyn at Marilyn’s Treats – I love to look at all of her recipes, and share a few each month with the readers of RUBY magazine, but the chances of me actually making any of those lovely dishes is pretty remote. I really do appreciate those who love to cook and who are truly artists in their own right, but I always find that I’m taking a second and third look at the blogs with DIY projects for each and every season, and any week of the year. Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with this week at the Favorite Things Blog Hop!
