All I ever need to know I learned from blogs...

I have a new addiction. It all started when my husband told me about a card table fort his mom made him when he was little. Knowing the Internet would have the directions I googled it. I found a blog with step by step instructions complete with pictures. Perfect for the people like me who need very explicit instructions. One thing led to another and now I have a whole ream of paper printed with ideas from these awesome blogs. Someday I may get to most of them.

I've even had time to make a few! I made 27 glow-in-dark washer necklaces for my family reunion this weekend! The glow-in-the dark part I added when I found some glow-in-dark modge podge and had to use it one something. They won't light the way in the dark or anything but they do glow. These took a looooog time to make this family. My family better appreciate it!

Notice the new $2.99 Old Navy shirt!

I love all of the fabric tutorials I have found. For my pay-it-forward contest winners I made these flowers and put them on jars with dinner conversations starters for your family. We've done it a couple of times and the kids love it.

Now some of these you might be receiving for Birthday/baby gifts etc. and you still have to act suprised and think I'm talented!Tile and scrapbook paper necklace:Cloth baby ring toy:Cloth crinkly baby toy:This was supposed to be stacking blocks for babies but turned into a pin cushion instead.

I also found a syrup for snow cones recipe. Don't look too closely at any of these, but I did have a fun time making them. If you are interested in the sites for any of these let me know and might still be able to find them.


  1. I LOVE making things too! Those all look like fun projects. I just found this blog http://makeitandloveit.blogspot.com/ Maybe you have already been checking it out. I have a lot of things that I am going to start making from this blog. I always love having a project going on. It keeps me sane. I am going to make the nursing cover for my lil' sis.

  2. You are so talented and ambicious (wow, that looks like I spelled it wrong). Anyway, you are good inspiration for someone who needs to be more adventurous at trying things.

  3. Those really ARE cool crafts. Is there a blog out there that teaches you how to get someone ELSE to do these cool things for you? That's the blog I want to learn everything from.

  4. I love the necklaces, Julie! You are so talented. :) I love doing blog crafts too. Very fun!
