Friday Finds

A few of the wow moments, or things I discover each week that tickle my fancy. I hope that they may inspire or tickle yours too!

 I did not know this.   It's a great piece of information to have.  I think every house has crayons in it.  I have tons of matches because of all those little matchbox dolls I make.  I also have crayons.

Strawberry Scissor Keep ~ free pattern at Red Brolly

I love, LOVE this felt strawberry scissor keeper.  It looks really easy to make as well.  A free pattern from Red Brolly.  

How to Make Your Own Colored Mason Jars, by blogger Liz Stanley of Say Yes

How to make your own coloured mason jars, from Momtastic.  I adore coloured glass.  It's as simple as using food colouring and Mod Podge.   Who knew???   Momtastic did!

Wrap papier mache around the fat end of a balloon, allow it to dry and then glue strips of fabric over the top.

I just love these cute bowls.   You make them from balloons and paper machier and fabric strips.  Rather cute don't you think?   Not sure what I would use them for.  Found on Bread and Buttons.  I once did a Paper Machier Humpty Dumpty in Americana Colours.  I wonder what ever happened to it . . . I dread to think.


I just love aprons.  Don't you?   I could collect them like salt and pepper shakers.  I found a page with links to over forty free apron patterns.  On Tipnut.   If you like aprons you will want to book mark that page!

Mod podge pictures to boards, then hang on ribbons.

No source for this, but you simply mod podge photographs onto boards, paint the edges and then hang with ribbons.  I love this idea.

Fabric Covered Box Tutorial {}

I am loving these fabric covered boxes which I found on In My Own Style.   It looks like a very simple idea and I have tons of fabric that I have bought through the years.   Simple!

Valentine's Day

Quick and Easy Headboard Updates from BHG.  I love the BHG website.  There is always something great on their page, from cooking to decorating and everything in between.

Spa in a jar! Fun gift idea for Mother's Day!

Spa In a Jar from The Gunny Sack.  What a great gift idea!  It would be great to do with the Young Women or the Relief Society at church as well.   I love it!  Plus there are free printables.

Mason Jar Pin Cushion

Mason Jar Pincushions.  There is a complete tutorial on The Seasoned Homemaker.  I adore pin cushions.  Like egg cups and tea cups and salt and pepper shakers.  I could easily collect them!

And that's it for this week.  I hope that you found something useful amongst this bunch!

A thought to carry with you through today . . .

A Rich and Rewarding Life 
 comes to those who 
Live with Heartfelt 
Appreciation and Gratitude 
for their Blessings. 
 Every Breath is a Gift to be 
Loved, Honored and Cherished. 
Bless the Breath of Life 
 and Bless You.
