My Friday Finds . . .



A few of the things  I find each week that pique my interest, bring me joy, inspire me to learn, create, do, become . . . Maybe they will do the same for you!  


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

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.

I love this idea. Painted people stones.  Heads on one stone, bodies on another, so you can play matching games with them, switch them up, around.  Fun, FUN!  From Good Ideas for You.

are those who have known defeat,
known suffering, known struggle,
known loss, and have found their way
out of the depths.
