Lately at The Pin Junkie, Bonnie shares her preparations for her upcoming trip to Europe. She thought it would be a good idea to bring a travel journal on her trip to write down notes while traveling. Bonnie had an old map of Europe on hand and realized she could use it to make her own travel journal instead of buying one.
Kerri blogs over at Keep Calm and KERRI On. Recently while at an estate sale, she found this vintage metal lunchbox for $3. (Who else remembers these lunch boxes? They were made to last!)
“This craft was inspired by an item that I MUST have on a daily basis: SUNNIES,” shares April on her blog, Gingerbread. Due to medical issues, April needs to wear sunglasses whenever she’s outside. Needless to say, she goes through sunglasses pretty fast, which is why April was excited to discover that her dollar store sold sunglasses that were sturdy and had a trendy shape.
At My Craftily Ever After, Ashley confesses her love/hate relationship with jewelry. “I LOVE LOVE LOVE earrings…but when it comes to bracelets, necklaces, and even rings that aren’t my wedding ring…I just feel awkward.” To prove her point, Ashley submits these silver bangle bracelets which she’d owned for a few years but rarely wore because the jangling noise they make bothered her.
Over at Club Chica Circle, Pauline had a basic beach bag that she wanted to give a little more personality. She decided to add a bit of color and pattern.
Nicole from The Felted Fox had an exotic tribal print pillow that came all the way from India. She confesses, ” I loved the fabric, but I didn’t like the shape or size of the pillow.” After stuffing it away in storage for a few years, she pulled it out and decided to transform the pillow into something she’d love and use.
