My Crafty Weekend - Rain Rain Go Away

Good day my crafty friends! I hope you had a fabulous week ending with a fabulous weekend. Ours was a bit of ho hum due to some serious cloud cover but Saturday brightened our spirits with some sunshine for a little girls birthday party. I cannot think of a better reason for some sunshine can you?

This is where my creative space has been all weekend though. I cannot wait to actually see the results, I am so excited! I also worked on more singed flowers. I came up with a design that I call the singed lotus and will be sharing the tutorial tomorrow (hopefully). It really is super fabulous!

Last week some fabulous links were entered. Here is a but a sample of the fabulousness you guys have been up to!

Janet of Janet of all Trades posts about this great Ikea hack (I have always wanted to say that lol). The reason I loved it so much was because she had the awesome idea to recover two at once. We all know how our craft scrapbooking decorating recipe sewing magazines can get out of hand right? Go here to see the tute to contain them prettily.

I have been seeing these toilet paper pumpkins everywhere since I saw this one last week. This one was made by Monica of Monzanita's Arts & Crafts. I loved both the simplicity of the project and her anecdote about searching them out for their precious cargo! Go here to read the entertaining post.

We all love books right? Seriously, in just a couple weeks you will see how much I do. But that is neither here nor there. What is, is this fantastic bookmark made by Tina of Twinkle Toes Bowtique. It is with a photo of your (or the recipient's) favourite person. Super great gift for grandparents yes? You can find the super simple tutorial here.

You guys are awesome. Such talented people indeed. And now it is time to show how awesome you are this week. Remember the one rule? Visit the link posted before yours and leave an encouraging comment. Super easy yes? Good. Now! Link up your creations. What have you been baking, building, roasting, sewing, painting, gluing or Mod Podging?! We would love to see. And, if you are feeling particularly awesome you can always scoop up a button to let others know where to find you!
