A few of the wow moments and things that I find each week that tickle my fancy. They might even tickle yours.

I love these folded felt gift boxes.   They are simple and easy to make.  Found on Curbly.  The possibilities for using these are endless.

Now this is something I would never have thought of doing, but will do now!  Stamping on felt and then colouring in with markers!  Genius!   From Side Oats and Scribbles.  This is one of those things you just want to smack your forehead and say, "Now why didn't I think of that!"

From Old Things New, how to slip cover an old padded bench or footstool.  I wouldn't necessarily pick this fabric, but the principle is sound.

From HomeTalk, how to turn plain white candles into a fab home accessory.  It's so simple!  These would make beautiful gifts.

Beautiful ways to repurpose old books.  There is everything from book marks to a fashionable clutch here.  Just Imagine

And that's it for this week.  I hope you found something amongst this lot that you can use!

A thought to carry with you through today . . .

Life is like a camera
You focus on what's important
Capture the good times
Develop from the negatives
And if things don't work out,
Take another shot  . . .
