Favorite Finds Friday


It's time to gather some of the great posts, ideas, inspiration and crafty goodies I have come across lately.  I am going to be writing up a few of these "Favorite Finds Friday's" ahead of time so even if I fall sick my posts can be scheduled to go live without interruption.  I think I have said that before LOL (BTW I did check and I said it in December).  I know…even I can't believe I spent time checking that out either. 

I have a WIP  (this abbreviation means Work In Progress in case you were wondering) that I am going to share with you next week, but it included making some cards.  I came across this card on Pinterest.  I followed it to the original article and loved it so much I thought I would share it with you. 

This card was made by Jayla from .  This site still has all its content but has moved to a new domain in 2011 and can now be found Here @ Two Paper Divas  I absolutely love this idea and cannot wait to create a few myself for some of my loved ones.  Jayla gives you a quick few tips on how she made this card. 

Surfing around or in my email, I found this awesome recycling idea that has tons of inspiration bursting from it.  I am hoping that I can make something similar for our back yard this year.

Yesterday while catching up on my blog reading I came across this adorably cute ground-hog stuffy to make from Mollie over at Wild Olive.  It's a simple tutorial and has minimal supplies needed.  Your little ones will adore the cute eyes/expression and it’s a good way to tell the story of ground-hog day.  This cutie is even nice enough to put out for décor in a corner somewhere.  At least I think so.  I love unique conversation starter props.

Myra over at MyBlessedLife posted this amazing looking cookie recipe, and I am making some of these this weekend.  G is skeptical as he is unsure how salt and peanut butter together will taste like.
Me personally?  I don’t really care what it's made out of as long as I like it lol.  Don't get me wrong, I am a pretty picky person.  But I am not often very experimental when it comes to new food.

I think I would like to challenge this about myself this year.  Perhaps I should make one new food a month and try it .. I might just find another family favorite and I will have gently come out of my 'box' to improve Me.  That can't be a bad thing lol

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy a couple of my finds this week.  If you find something you like, please let me know in the comments.  I also would love it if you sent me some posts you found fascinating this week.  You just might get a mention and link back to your site or blog or page.

I thought he was adorable too. It's also very creative and a great way to introduce our children to Ground-hog day. But you have to watch Ground-hog day too! I can't even tell you how many times I have watched that movie lol.

Glad you liked him Traci.
