Now for some crafting for the big kids! I'm really bad at making things for myself, but am feeling inspired by the fun ideas I found:
What a bright idea! (Sorry for the lame pun.)
Using pillowcases makes this an easy intro sewing project.
I'm not a big jewelry person, but I can definitely see myself making and wearing this one.
You could probably find old fixtures for next to nothing on Craigslist!
Old suitcases are one of my favorite curbside finds (can you believe people actually throw them out!)--you can never have too many; they're great for storage, too.
A fresh take on kitchen decor.
I don't know that I have the patience to make this one, but thought it was cool, I could see my oldest son wanting to make one.
I love the structure of this bowl!
I'd almost hate to cut into any of my old magazines, but a great way to use a collection you're not likely to read through anymore (tear out your favorite articles first!).
Now this is my kind of project--clean, simple, and super-useful!
Go buy a copy of the paper just so you can some of these to impress your friends!
Now go make something for yourself (and the other "grown-ups" in your life). Which grown-up craft is your favorite?
