Amy Butler Paper

Did you know Amy Butler makes PAPER? PAPER! I think I'm going to do the backs of my kitchen cabinets in this paper. Whadda think? How would you attach the paper? Just tape? That's how it's stuck on here.

By the way, that's MY cabinet pictured. I don't think I've ever used my actual pictures on this blog!

Bird Mobile Pattern

Found these at Spool. Am thinking of making them for little accents in Kate's room (you know, to go with my Etsy squiggly bird obsession)

I bet I could crank out of a couple of these during a movie. And it would give me an excuse to buy little bits of overpriced fabrics. Sold!

Find the pattern here.

(Update: Oh, I just thought about this! What about Christmas tree ornaments? Oooooooh!)

YOU work for ME

Now I've give you people lots of ideas. Now you do your part. Find me these floating glass fishes! I've tried Googling "floating glass fish" and "fake glass fish" NOTHING! HEEEEEEEEEEEEELLP!

(oh, and I found the above picture linked to an all Japanese website. Not so helpful with ordering. Even emailed the website IN ENGLISH. Strangely enough, no response)

But while searching found these shoes:

So really pretty much the same thing.


Hilarious! I think I have to have this. How funny!

(okay, upon closer reading it's apparently supposed to reduce cell phone radiation to your head. But I would just buy it for looks)

Embroidered Sweater

From Forever 21. I love the neckline. Would you order this? Forever21's clothes always fit weird on me. Hmm.

Doll Bed

SO perfect for Kate's room. But SO expensive. Here.

Mom, don't read this...

..well, you can read if you want. But don't say I didn't warn you.

This totally cute lingere at Forever21 is listed as "loungewear". Really?

Schizophrenic Bedding

All from Pottery Barn. Love them ALL.

Clothespin Doll Kit

The author of Posie Gets Cozy blog has come out with her clothespin dolls again. There was such a rush for these stinking things last time I didn't get one. BUT NOT THIS TIME!

While I wish I could say I'll sit down with the kids and let them go willy-nilly, I won't. I'll make tiny little dolls after they're in bed and then put them in Kate's room.

Field Trip II Print

Oh, man. I've bought another print for Kate's room.

Here's what I've learned from Etsy:

1. I like birds.

2. Squiggly birds.

3. The end.

Need new swimsuit that is not black. Thinking about this one. When did so little fabric get so expensive?

Solar System Bedding

This bedding would be awesome in Colin's room. Except Blake would steal it and sleep with it. I'm not kidding.

Oh, since I'm here. Look at these! What a good idea for putting next to a rocker for night-time reading.

Amy Butler Wallflower

Need a project for this fabric. Also needs it to be way less than 10 bucks a YARD!

Mustache Minis

How hilarious would these decals be stuck to a guest bathroom mirror? Or a kids mirror? Or for your mother-in-law?

Birdy Print

I've ordered this for Kate's room. If you know me, you know I've already changed my mind on the colors for her room. I'm going to have find this a home somewhere.

Look at her other cute prints. I want these for our playroom. I think I could just paint them myself though (and change the colors)

Paper Source

My paper porn store. Waaaay expensive, but maybe for a special project.

Just look:

Almost better than fabric, right? Well, probably way better because odds are I'd actually use the paper.

Yo-yo Tutorial

How to make a fabric yo-yo tutorial found here. Now the problem isn't how to make them, it's where to stick them.

Stick-on Tile Decals

Am keeping these in mind. They totally match my dishes.

"I'm All Set" Print

Wouldn't this be awesome hanging by your front door? "I'm All Set" Found here.

Get Some Action!

The Photoshop Action pack I use the most:

Totally Rad Actions.

They have an action called "Ying/Yang" which I use on every single image. It allows you to make certain areas darker and certain areas lighter. You just paint where you want the light--fabulous!

If you have Photoshop, you need this. Go to their site; they have samples!

SuperHero Tin SIgns

Bought these for Colin's room. Are old school tin signs. Colin is very impressed with himself.

Egg White Facial Soap

Chatted with a 67 year old Swedish woman at the park with fabulous skin. Said this was her secret. Took notes. Passing it on to you.

Butterfly Paper Lanterns

Just made these. Impressed with my super-crafty self. Am sooooo Martha.

Fishy Kissy Shirt

Want this shirt for Kate. Smooch!

Sink Cover

Have a free-standing sink with nowhere to hide toilet paper. Am thinking of making this. Also, pretty in love with the paint job here (somewhere Blake just got a cold shiver)

Bento Lunches

This website. Am thinking of doing this for our regular lunches. This is OCD me in a box.
