Freebie Roundup

With all of the paper and fabric cutting, sewing and sugar consumption, I have little time to spend on my dashboard and check out all of the ideas on blogland that inspire me to create, create, create. It's truly sad.

During a quick glance at my favorites, there are so many freebies to share. So before they go away and I lose them forever, I'm going to list them here similar to a journal entry so that I can one day return and try again.

Thanks eighteen25 (again!) for reminding me how wonderful you are with the free subway art and getting me excited for St. Pattie's Day!


I'm always looking for ways to use yarn that doesn't include another scarf. The Lettered Cottage has instructions on how to create a wreath that is the perfect transition from 'goodbye winter' to 'hello spring'!


I have visions of cute headbands for my cousins that are actually part of that 30 Before April 30 list. Craftaholics Anonymous provides a great tutorial on how to make them and I sure look forward to taking this on.


Monogram pillows are so in right now! And I wish I could put one on every single couch in this house! But I've learned that they're kinda hard to make if you want a good quality product. The Sweet Survival has one of the best online tutorials.


One of the most important lessons I learned in college was glitter is an outside toy. Since then, I have learned that embossing powder and glitter paper also falls into that category. That is why this amazing artwork by Reasons to Skip the Housework would look great in our house but the project will need to go outside.


Another 30 Before April 30 project is the photobooth props which I will need to make. But thanks to Today's Creative Blog, she's collected a few favorite freebies from Amy Locurto, which includes the infamous smiles, 'staches and teeth on sticks.


Keep creative people!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing my Lucky Word Frame! Oh, and BTW, totally created at the kitchen table and ZERO mess! The beads all stay inside the frame and then you just tap them back into the bowl! Happy crafting!

    Smiles,
