Five On Fridays

(If your blog is featured, please grab a button on the right)


Swing by Shutterbug and the Sweet Life for a party for all the little monkeys in your life. Jennifer's monkey turned 3 and she planned a party that will knock your socks off. The Party-Part One if filled with fabulous pics of divine treats, party decor and the cutest sock monkey ever!


Just in case you missed, The Great Pantry Makeover it is one to bookmark! You'll appreciate Emily's "unorganized-before and happily-ever-after" @ Decor Chick, doubling her storage space. Her father created the carousels for her and shows us how in her follow up. He's willing to make them for you too! If you live close enough he'll install...wana come see Yellowstone Park?
How to make the carousels.


Anybody interested in a terrific "how to" on Hemming Your Jeans? Well good, because Rachel @ Holy Craft is a busy mom and homemaker who is gifted at stretching a dollar. With tailoring fees out of sight, her step by step lesson is an awesome way for us to save too!


Talk about creative, think of all the ways we can use this idea. Printing on Fabric
right from a home printer is something I've never thought of, but it makes sense! At My Repurposed Life, Gail gives a great tutorial and I'm excited to give some fabric a whirl through my old printer.

Each week I see so many quilts to share. To me, they are works of art, and I'm crazy for the non-traditional ones that are fun and funky. Snuggling up with this Juice Box Quilt would be happiness! I love the bright colors and delightful pattern, talented quilter, Allison used @ Cluck. Cluck. SEW.

Have an inspired weekend all!

  3. I love that pantry carousal and just have to see how it's done.

    I also have a "scrimpie" daughter whose jeans are always too long. I would love to be able to tailor them myself. I usually send them out so that they get the real "jeans hem" look.

    You always find the best stuff out there in blogland.
