My Friday Finds . . .
A few of the things I find each week that spark my interest, intellect and curiosity. I hope that they do the same thing for you. Its hard to believe that this is my last Friday Finds post for May. This month (year!) has just flown by!
Five basic watercolour techniques for the colourist, artist, beginner, journalist, etc. Found on Adventures in Making.
Crochet your own shopping bag. From The Adventures of Cassie.
Matching cotton dishcloth and teatowel pattern. To crochet. From The Yarn Box.
Decorate a handbag with buttons. So sweet and so simple. Found on Inspire Co.
Two Brothers Two.
In this unique documentary series Two Brothers Two, director Rick Stevenson takes us on a 10-year journey through the lives of the Nelson brothers, Sam, Luke, Tommy, and Joseph, as they struggle to find love for each other and for themselves. There are sixteen short videos, each about 10 minutes long. It is a compelling look into the lives of these four brothers. I discovered it by accident yesterday morning and I watched ALL sixteen videos yesterday. I couldn't not watch it. Each one inspired me to want to watch the next one. It was fantastic.
A Unique idea for holding your earrings. Found on Homemade Crap.
How to make your own compound Herb Butters. From Buzzfeed.
Maraschino Cherries from Scratch. Found on Creagirl.
Make your own Weed control using totally natural ingredients. Well, except for the dish soap. From Hometalk. Apparently this stuff works very well.
Decorate with old lanterns. About Face and Fashion. Inspiration only. But nice. I would never have thought of doing this.

Fruit Infused Waters 6 Ways for summer drinking. From SHE Uncovered.

And that's it for this week. I hope that you found something here that interested you!
A thought to carry with you through today . . .
If you want to be
you need to say everything
in three different ways.
Once for each ear . . .
and once for the heart.

Hope your Friday is a great one! Todd is off to the Temple today, taking up three Missionary Elders who are preparing to end their missions and go home. A special Temple experience with the Mission President. It should be a great day for him. Wherever you go and whatever you get up to, don't forget!
