One Pretty Thing and Pinterest

One of my favorite creative sites is One Pretty Thing. Rachel has so many ideas and tutorials (her subtitle says "DIY Craft Tutorials for a handmade life"). I love that they are all compiled in one location and they are searchable(YES!). If you haven't been there, you should check it out! She featured my door knocker revamp on her last revamp roundup. Hurray!!!

I love to look at photos of ideas and find myself inspired to create after browsing the creations of others. Sometimes I make something similar, but most often, I just find my own creative ideas spring forth! For that reason, I LOVE Pinterest! I discovered Pinterest through a blog I follow called How Does She which has a ton of ideas in many categories. You have to request an invite on Pinterest (kind of like Ravelry). Once you do, you will be amazed at all the wondrous inspiration found there. If you do Pinterest, please follow me!

And here is a completely gratuitous photo of a Challah Cover I made for a friend.  I don't like to do posts without photos, I'm such a visual person :) It's a simple applique on a pre-made napkin from Pier 1 with a zig zag stitch around the Hebrew letters (they say "Shabbat Sholom").

P.S. I'm working on a Brown Bag SWAP from Snickerdoodle Dreams! I can't show it yet... but I'm having fun with some bright colored fabrics :)
