favourite things friday

I love look­ing at maps and read­ing all the names of dif­fer­ent places. These coast­ers will have me mes­mer­ized for hours. How-to on I Could Make That.


Oooh, what an idea! “When you can’t hide them, embrace them,” it says. From Unplggd.


Love the sim­plic­i­ty of this. Per­fect craft for beach­combers, like me :D I can pic­ture them being won­der­ful place card hold­ers too! For a par­ty or even a beach-themed wed­ding! I so want to make this, but we have no room to put them in our apart­ment — I vol­un­teer to make place­card hold­ers if any­one is hav­ing a beach-themed wed­ding! How-to on Paint Cut Paste.


A skirt made of fab­ric nap­kins! I’m intrigued! Tuto­r­i­al on Bet­ter Togeth­er (via Ucre­ate).


A very love­ly yet sim­ple design. Head­band how-to on say YES! to hobo­ken.


I guess it has a bit to do with the blue table cloths in the pho­tos, but these remind me of the Japan­ese cer­e­mo­ny of Toro nagashi, in which par­tic­i­pants float lanterns down a riv­er. Very peace­ful to look at. How-to on Mom­tas­tic.


I recent­ly dis­cov­ered and start­ed fol­low­ing My Lit­tle Hut, a blog with absolute­ly amaz­ing paper cut designs. Here the artist behind the blog shares how to make wal­lart with junk mail on Craft. It’s brilliant!


Equal­ly bril­liant is this match­book card or wall art, also shared on Craft. It was post­ed as a Valen­tine’s Day project, but I think it would be love­ly gift idea for any season.


These are, of course, made for kids, but the tuto­r­i­al involves trac­ing an exist­ing pair of shorts or pants, so I imag­ine it would be easy to mod­i­fy to adult sizes. I don’t usu­al­ly wear shorts, but I would total­ly wear these. Tuto­r­i­al on Gros­grain. (I think I just like the look of twist­ed or knot­ted fabric…)


Pho­to­booth pic­tures seem to be a trend at wed­dings these days. Mike and I always joke that if we do our wed­ding again we would need to have a pho­to­booth. And a prop­er cake (we had one but it was pre-cut into squares thanks to the cater­ing staff :S). But since we’re not going to have anoth­er wed­ding we can have a pho­to­booth for par­ties, with these fun props! How else could you get a pic­ture with the fas­ci­na­tor? Print­a­bles on Oh Hap­py Day.


Print­ing with seeds and pods! I real­ly like the pat­tern that the pop­py pod makes (the white prints). From Maya Made.


This key lime pie pop­si­cle is appar­ent­ly made from con­densed milk — A must-make! If con­densed milk and lime aren’t your thing, there is a list of oth­er dessert flavoured pop­si­cles over on Be Dif­fer­ent Act Nor­mal, I’m sure you’ll find one you like :D


This is the funnest snack ever — fea­tur­ing Bert and Ernie! (My brain prompt­ly cues Healthy Food). How-to on Kitchen Fun with My Three Sons.


And final­ly, see Ernie and Bert on set! A very cool gallery of behind the scene pho­tos of famous movies, back when sets were hand­made and spe­cial effects mechan­i­cal, on angusrshamal.com (via Swiss­miss).

Wish­ing you a love­ly Fri­day! :D
