to-do list

There are so very many crafts out there that I'd love to do. Yeah, yeah, I realize that I will never ever make it through them all unless I quit my job. Oh... and quit my other job as a parent too. Or maybe teach Violet to be my little helper? Someday...

Anywho, here are a few things on my neverending list!

Go here for a pattern for this adorable little fox lamp! So great for a little one's room.

People are so creative- this blogger made a kid's tent out of an old maxi dress. When Violet's old enough, I'd love to make her something like this. I think every kid needs a little space they can make their own little play house.

These are so so cute, right? Maybe someday Violet will want to dress up like a little birdie enough that she would appreciate the amount of work it would take for me to sew this. Tutorial here!

Not all my crafty ideas are for Violet. I got all kinds of plans for little things to make the condo pretty too, like these paper lamps made from vintage book pages.

And lastly, how amazing is this? I love this idea- I know I come home from trips with odds & ends (a few shells from Jamaica, ticket stub for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in NYC, turquoise from the Native American reservation in New Mexico), and then I don't know what to do with them. And so they end up in a box or pile somewhere. So yeah, I love this! Source here.

I tell ya, my Pinterest account is overflowin with stuff I'll never get to! Anyone out there make any fun crafts lately?
