Before the Internet, I had a big problem with dreaming up zillions of projects that sounded like fun.
Add the Internet, then add the blogosphere, and my troubles have quadrupled.
Allow me to share. Because why should I be the only one plagued with this myriad of really cool stuff to make?
This Penny Counter idea is really interesting. Not saying I’d want to do it in my own house, but it’s definitely unique, and could be cool if you happen to be a numismatist. Or married to one. Or too cheap to buy tiles.
Hillary Lang of Wee Wonderfuls has a really cute (and free!) mermaid doll pattern as a promo for her Wee Wonderfuls book of handmade toys. If you are easily distracted, do not click the Wee Wonderfuls links. You’ll be daydreaming for quite awhile. Don’t blame me… you were warned.
Surely my girls need Waldorf-style dolls, handmade by Mom.
And a stuffed pig. Even though I kind of hate stuffed animals. When I say “kind of” I mean “despise with every fiber of my being”, but I give in because my kids like ’em to a certain extent. That extent is a lot more than I like ’em.
Lefty loves fridge magnets, and I’m pretty sure Spicy would fall over dead with happiness if I made them these amazing felt fridge magnets.
Surely there are large sweaters lurking at the thrift store, from which I could make some really cute sweater tunics for Spicy and Lefty.
And one of my favorite spots to get ideas and tutorials: One Pretty Thing.
All this isn’t even touching on my whole long stack of house ideas and drool-worthy shelter blogs. SIGH.
On the up-side, I don’t feel as distracted by magazines anymore. Silver linings!
