Some Crafty Links

29Jul08

I haven’t done anything crafty for a few days, mostly just been reading craft blogs, eating and sleeping. I’m using all the time I can now to get some much needed sleep before the bub arrives (due in 10 days). SO rather than not blog for days I thought I would compile a list of some of my favourite links I have come across the past week. Enjoy!

Free Scrapbook Fonts – Gorgeous fonts you can download and use in your digital scrapbooking, or print out some cute journalling for your scrapbooking pages. This reminds me to upload some of the fonts I have made for free download.

Button Brooch Tutorial – I love these little button brooches, and they are super easy to make. I don’t know if I personally would wear it as a brooch, but I can definitely see myself making pendants or scrapbook embellishments from this idea.

Daisy-Chain Scarf – I have been teaching myself to crochet. I have tried countless times to learn to knit, but always fail because I just don’t get it. With crochet I found it much easier, so far I know how to do a chain stitch and single and double crochet stitch. I still need to learn more as I find the terminology confusing. When I become a good crocheter I plan to make this scarf, it is sooo adorable.

Felt Flower Pins – These are so bright and funky how can you not like them. Super easy to do and a fun project for the kids. These brooches would look great pinned onto an equally bright and funky bag.

Mini Paper Bag Scrapbook – I love this, and wish I had made one at the start of my pregnancy. I could still do it but I hardly have time. Such a thoughtful gift.

Making Beads From Scrap Plastic – I was planning to write my own tutorial version of this but why should I when there are plenty of tutorials out there. I will soon post my own beaded creations using this tutorial.

I might make this crafty links a regular feature on my blog as it is perfect for those craft-free dry days when I have nothing to blog about.

  1. My God, you are due in 10 days!!!!! Time just flies. I hope you will still get around to putting up a posting here and there. I just nominated you for the Brilliante Weblog award on Crafty Daisies. You’ve done so much work on this site in such a short time and your paper is just beautiful. Let me know how you and your boy are doing.
