DIYday, Vol. 1

As a far as crafting goes, I am a collector. I collect piles of fabric, jars of buttons, stacks (and stacks) of papers, drawers of thread and notions, rows of ribbons, piles of clippings, etc, etc. Actually, instead of “collect” a more appropriate word might be “hoard”. I hoard all these things in hopes that someday I’ll have time to do something creative with them. One of my favorite things to hoard is tutorials. Like, free online tutorials where somebody has come up with some cute little sewing or paper project that they explain in photos and tell you how to do it. I seriously have hundreds of these bookmarked on my computer. Hundreds. I know, silly, right? Please don’t ask me how many I’ve actually used.


Anyways, in an effort to bring purpose to all that tutorial hoarding, I want to share some with you. I’m calling this DIYday. You’ll see tutorials for sewing, crafting, cooking – just about any kind of making. So, here goes:
Pinwheels by Heather Bailey. My daughter loves pinwheels and I have been wanting to make one of these for her. Hmmm … maybe with my new SAHM-status, we could do that together. Break out the safety scissors!

Poms by Martha (no last name required). My SIL has made some flowers similar to these, and I keep them on the window sill by my computer, so I see them every day! A little bit of color that never wilts!

Fun stuff, huh? I’m thinking those poms would be great decor for a baby shower, or even a baby’s room? And I love that the cookie jars can be customized with a different color for another occasion. Not that the pink isn’t awesome.
Okay, now I don’t feel so guilty for hoarding all those fabulous ideas!
