Are you crafty? I'm a copy cat crafter!

It's true, I really don't have an artistic bone in my body unfortunately (after 1 year as an architecture student I gave up hope of that career and switched to finance which does not require an ounce of creativity!) but I dream of being really crafty and coming up with cool ideas that others praise me for being genius for!  Until that day comes, I like to find ideas on other people's blogs on copy them.  Here are two really cute ideas I found today that I can't wait to try!

First up, I''m going to attempt this in the next couple weeks for the boys' play area!  It's a framed alphabet and wait until you see how easy it is!  http://www.designmom.com/2011/01/alphabet-art-by-destri-bufmack/

Next, I'm always looking for little gifts I can add to baby shower gifts since I whole heartedly believe you should buy from someones registry and not tell them your choice of (bottles, pacifiers, toys, etc.) is a much better choice than what they chose (cringe!  I've heard this more than once at showers.) but I like to add something they didn't ask for along with something they did.  These little owl crinkle teethers are A. Dorable.  http://homemadebyjill.blogspot.com/2011/01/crinkly-owl-teethers.html

And with that said, anyone have a really cute Valentine craft idea?  I'd love to hear!

    We'll be making the heart "chandelier" craft from Kelle Hampton's blog that she showed a few weeks back. Super easy and fun and they look ADORABLE. :) That's our snow day craft for tomorrow!

  2. Oh, that is a cute idea Jaime! Here's the link for anyone looking for it http://www.kellehampton.com/2011/01/stream-of-consciousness.html .

  3. GIRL! you have to go over to shabbychic cottage- they have "Transformation Thursday" where every thursday blog followers upload links to what they have "transformed" TOO CUTE! i am a follower, so just go to my page. She usually updates daily, but i especially love visiting on Thursday; it's where I get most of my decorating ideas through out the year for cool project and seasonal items! LOVE it!

  4. I like to think im creative but i am totally a copy cat crafter. Other peoples ideas are just too good to pass up!

  5. @Annie, I totally got sucked into the Shabbychic Cottage when I saw it linked on your page! I love that style and I spent a good hour+ looking at all the ideas:) There used to be a magazine they sold at Barnes and Nobles that was cottage decor but they stopped selling at our store this past year, I was so bummed!
    @Jo, exactly, why spend the time thinking up the idea when it's right in front of you and with online tutorials, it's just so easy!

  6. I am a bit of a copier too. I like to "think" that I am creative but I am just a copier at heart. At least you admit it! ha!

    That alphabet picture is sooo cute! I am tempted to give it a go for Eden's bedroom.
