Feelin' the Itch

Ever since I was little girl, I've loved to make things, and there's little I love more than a completed project. With that being said, I've been hoarding ideas until the making-time was just right....I think we might be arriving soon.
This year as a stay-at-home mom, here are a few ideas I'm hoping to tackle:

I love this photo display from The Crafting Chicks! I think it would amazing in my hall, and just looking at it again makes me want to run to the nearest craft supply and crack this out before dinner time. Thus, I'm practicing the art of self-control at. this. very. moment.

This vanilla body sugar scrub appears as though the smell alone would make my mouth water. You can get the complete directions for this one here


I've seriously been on the lookout for old shutters since discovering this post at months ago. I want to use it for my Christmas cards this year.

This one is ideal for me because I actually need a place to display my jewelry. I don't know about you, but once I put my jewelery in a box, it tends to stay there. Seeing it every day might encourage me to....I dunno....WEAR IT. You can get the details from Kevin and Amanda here.

This might honestly be my favorite. I love simple and clean, and this from House of Smiths is both. It's officially been filed in the GOTTA HAVE IT section in my brain.

And, last but not least, oh look- yet another way to display photos, only on a much smaller scale. I think these would make great grandparent happies, especially with our recent addition of baby number two. You can get the how-to's here.

So, I have to ask? What ideas are you stashing away until the time for creating is just right?

    We love having those chunky frames because they take up that awkward space in the hallway... just perfectly! :)

  8. McCall,
    I have made the earring holder for my sister Sumer and I, I will be happy to make you one. Also, I have an extra pair of old shutters in my craft room if you want them I will hold on to them until we get together again, we could even make them part of our projects on our to-do list! Love you!
