Weekend Favorites

Happy Friday! This week, for the first time in a while, Friday did not sneak up on me. I actually have a nice little collection of images and links stored up for you. Enjoy!

Around the Web

I spend some time earlier in the week sharing my favorite crafty links through social media. And then I repeat them here on Fridays.

  • Make Your Own Home Photo Booth – tips from A Beautiful Mess. I’ve been thinking about a homemade photobooth for my last few parties, but it hasn’t happened yet. One of these days!!
  • Washcloths and Scrubbing Mitt – a simple knitting project from The Purl Bee. The look really cool. Surprisingly, they are knit in a simple garter stitch. It’s the yarn itself that does all of the work.
  • DIY Shampoo Bars, Cold Process – a recipe from Kim Werker. I’ve used handmade shampoo bars in the past, but there was always an unpleasant build-up on my hair after a few days. Hard water is likely to blame. If you have soft water, you might like this recipe.
  • Sunny Flower Motif Table Runner – a crochet tutorial from Zooty Owl’s Crafty Blog. I like this. I could see doing it in different colors and turning it into a colorful shawl.
  • popsicle, popsicle, popsicle – a few good recipes from a Friend to knit with. Oh I’m so glad i saw this – I have forgotten that I was going to make popsicles with some of my smoothie ingredients until now! I need to try a few of these, too.

Have a happy Friday!
