A few of the things I discover each week that pique my interest and that I think you might like too.



From Bullet on Tumbler,  10 ways to make your notes more interesting.  I love it!

A list of educational websites.  I have not checked them all out, but I do know of some of them.


For the kids, a Firebreathing Dragon papercraft from  One Little Project.

Boy I wish I had had a computer when my children were growing up. There is a wealth of affordable cute ideas to keep them busy and occupied during the summer months on the net!

 Recipes for 12 of your favourite candy bars.  From Community Table.


Make your own Fairy Lanterns using jars.  From Pixie Hill.  A complete Tutorial.


Make your own Paper Lanterns.  From EZY Craft on Youtube.   There are a lot of different paper lampshades there.


A broken Flower Pot Fairy Garden.  From Az Sekerli.  What a cute idea!


Printable Owl Bookmark and card.  From  Pay It Forward.


Plastic Bottle yarn holders.  From  Good Ideas For You.


From Noble Knits.  A free shawl pattern. So pretty.


Pretty Patchwork Slippers.  A complete tutorial on Through the Window.   I would love these.


DIY Flower Lights.  A simple idea using cupcake papers.  From Bridgeman Inspired Living.


Molly Moo Crafts.  How to make a Sock Monkey.   My two Lewis grandsons love theirs.  The oldest one calls his "Socker Monkey."  His tail is twice as long as it started out now.  lol


Make and Do Crew.  How to crochet Slippers from Flip Flops.   What a novel idea!

And those are my finds for this week.  I hope you found something useful!

 And I do too!!


  1. As always some great ideas Marie...what a beautiful,shawl that is. I wish that I still,enjoyed knitting ...and still do, in my imagination !!...but soon after I start to knit my fingers object and swell up so,it's not good, I am going to try today to,knit a poppy someone asked us at the coffee and chat if we might contribute crochet or knitted Poppy's which are going to be laid along the high street in Corsham leading to what used to be the maternity hospital,during the war that the council are recreating presumably in November....val our neighbour has already done dozens...Mary is helping by making black tiny bobbles for the centres...Val gave her a small bobble maker...that will keep her happy..
    Hope that you have a nice weekend, weather forecast is a bit I'm away to make my breakfast, no need to wait for Mary this morning...her flight was an hour late taking her up,to,Edinburgh but jenny her friend had checked before leaving home so didn't go for her till later xxx

  2. Good morning Marie and hugs for your poor hands Sybil. My hands do not cope with calligraphy anymore but I can still knit and crochet (if i use a specific hook)

    I am mad for shawls of the tiny type at present and finished my first one this week. I am not great at following the patterns those. Thank you for sharing all those delightful finds. I will have a Friday evening fun time. Tonight I will begin my annual tour around France while watching the riders..

    God bless.

  3. Yes many are celebrating a long 4th of July weekend here starting today. I'm babysitting on of my grand dogs. Hope your Friday is a fantastic one !

  4. What a fabulous worthy cause Sybil! And how wonderful that Mary is able to help with it. I am glad to read she got off okay. Enjoy your time on your own. I am sure you will be glad of the break in a way, but will also miss her company! I know how you feel with your hands as my hands also protest if I use them too much for knitting or crocheting! Kind of a bummer, but I do what I can. Love and hugs and enjoy your weekend! xoxo

    Enjoy your Tour de France Suzan! I remember when we were down in Kent that last summer we were there the Tour De France went right past our door! Very exciting! I am wanting to knit or crochet some neck hiders for the winter! Watch this space! God bless! xoxo

    What fun Pam! I hope they all get along with each other and that you enjoy their company! Happy weekend! xoxo

  5. Such cute finds Marie..I love letter writing find such sweet things always:)I like watching the Tour De France..Jacques LOVES it;)

  6. It's always very exciting Monique! SO is Wimbledon! That's on now at the moment also! Happy Canada day! xoxo
