things i want to try from blogland...

one thing that blogging has brought into my life (besides some great blogging friends) is some great inspiration, here are a few that i really can't stop thinking about: camille's chair makes me want to go out and just do the re-upholstering thing...this was her FIRST attempt. can you believe that?
my wonderful friend larissa made this apron and i think the colors are just fabulous and makes me so excited for spring.

my wonderful friend mel's family tree has got to be the cutest family tree i've ever laid eyes on. she has a tutorial on how to make one.
this super yummy chocolate butter cake from the farm chicks looks to die for...tell me that wouldn't take away the monthly crankies.

this awesome quilt that moda lissa is making is so fresh and lovely...oh i really can't wait to try it.
there are so many (and not just the one's i've mentioned) wonderfully talented women out there that just keep amazing me, and keep making me want to try new things!

let's try that again since i SO couldn't type right on the first try.

oh my gosh i've been drooling over camille's chair for weeks now.
i need to go thrift shopping to find me a camille chair.
do you have a chair already???

thanks for all the links.
the family tree is SUPER cute!!!
i WILL be doing that...gotta make a trip for the right color cardstock.

rachel griffith said...

oh oh oh i just had a thought.
wonder how the family tree would look done in fabric.
with an applique tree and leaves.
do the leaves like a stitchery.
and then put it in a frame like you did those appliqued pumpkins.

do you think that would work???
:D

I've reupholstered several things and it isn't that hard. Just like a puzzle - get a good staple gun! Your family tree is cute! I feel like your blog gives ME such inspiration!

I've had a crush on that chair for several months now...I showed my husband and he said it looked like a Minnie Mouse chair, but I love it anyway:) Thanks for sharing some great ideas - I think I may have to try that family tree!

I have so many ideas bookmarked, I won't live long enough to do them all. Better print some of them that I like the best before they disappear!
