Amy’s Notebook 01.31.07

Well, here is your weekly time-sucker! I look forward to sharing these each week and I hope it is full of ideas for things you can do with your family!

Just in case you missed it, don’t forget to sign up for our Starbucks $20 Gift Card Giveaway. There are over 500 entries! I should give away stuff more often! I also posted our results from our sweet Valentine’s Day giveaway. Congrats to our winner Lori and her daughter Sarah! Take some time to read the entries– there were so many great ideas for ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Guess what? I didn’t see very many on there that would cost a lot of money!

Happy reading!

The way this gift is wrapped gave me some new ideas for shipping future gifts.

This is a great project to do with toddlers for Valentine’s Day- heart flower pots!

I love these labels she created for her spice jars. It makes them look so elegant!

This sun dried tomato artichoke chicken dish looks delicious!

How cute is this quiet little family set? So beautiful and thoughtful!

These warm fuzzy cupcakes are adorable.

I love these collector’s boxes.

These hugs and kisses cookies look so yummy!

These bath bomb surprises are so cool! That would be a huge hit with my kids! I also loved this idea for making marbleized paper with the kiddos.

I love this idea for making a laptop cozy!

These crowns would be a cute craft to do for Emily’s next birthday party.

These updates to vintage linens was so inspiring and creative.

This pom pom craft would be a fun one for Ethan & I to do together.

Wouldn’t this be the perfect art for a sewing or craft room? I see retro patterns all of the time that would work perfectly for this.

I am totally building a bar out of my kids changing table. What a perfect repurpose of a useless item in our house.

I love this thrift store jacket makeover! I am going to keep my eyes peeled the next time I am out shopping. I will need to look for some vintage chic coats.

I love these ideas for saving money.

I try to keep a few vintage handkerchiefs in my purse so I loved this post on cloth handkerchiefs.

This doll house bookcase is so cute! I am going to have to keep this in mind for Emily.

Did I mention that I want to BE Design Mom? I mean, I really want to be her. Her tips for crafts with kids are so awesome. I think she is going to think I am a stalker if I keep featuring her here, but I am content with that.

I am going to have to remember this hack the next time a diaper breaks.

A necessary reminder- unplug, unplug, unplug.
