Crafty People!

I don't post enough. I'm just really busy. But I do browse just about everyone's blogs. I love seeing what the crafty world has to offer. So I thought I would link you to some of my recent favorites.

25 Minute Upcycled Shorts & Caris (or Pants) Tutorial

My kids LOVE leggings and anything that even remotely resembles them. We have lots and lots but they're getting worn out. I think I'll be making a trip to Salvation Army this week for some shirts to convert.

Ballerina Slippers Pattern & Tutorial

I am in love with these. They would make great gifts for my sisters and sisters in law this Christmas. And I wouldn't mind a few pairs myself. ;)

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom File Folder Game

How stinkin' awesome is this?! The middle is obsessed with the book, her class read it several times in the last year and I know it's a favorite. This game is right up her alley, and so perfect for all the girls to play. Of course, I'd have to make three sets...that's just how my ladies roll.

Distressed Mail Holder

I love this idea. The hubby has tons of pallets at his work that just get tossed. I wonder if he'll toss one in the back of the car when he comes home. Not that I'd actually put mail in it, but it'd be neat to make one for magazines, maybe add a couple hooks at the bottom for keys? THAT would be something I could use for sure!

I hope you found some crafty inspiration! I know I did :)
