friday favorites | february 15, 2013

Good morning, and a very happy Friday to everyone! Today finds me once again out of town for work, but the good news is that I'm heading home this afternoon and am so ready for a weekend in my own house!

Today's roundup of crafty picks includes just one or two Valentine's Day projects, but they can be re-themed to any holiday or celebration, really! And there's a little photography, some organization, and a bit of home decor thrown in for good measure, as well. So, let's get started, shall we?


From the top left:

  • This sweet garland mailer DIY at Oh Happy Day would be a lovely gift to send for any occasion!
  • Cindy Liebel created a totally unique and fun desk organizer! She's also entered it into a design contest, and when you click through the link she has details on how you can vote for her, if you're so inclined.
  • Jasmine Star wrote a great post showing several different ways to photograph the same dessert buffet. It's loaded with photos and detailed information (lens, camera settings, etc.) for each picture. 
  • Learn how to use your Silhouette to both create and corral items to use in your Project Life album on Lori Whitlock's blog.
  • Jennifer Pebbles' office/playroom got a fab makeover from Target!
  • I thought that this cute sushi-themed dessert buffet on Amy Atlas' blog was just fun!
  • Erin Stewart shows how to use circle punches to create a lovely home decor piece on the American Crafts blog. What a great way to use up some scraps!
  • Like the Project Life format, but not really interested in using it for your current pictures? Becky Higgins shows the Olive Edition being used to document heritage photos!
  • Learn how to make this adorable mini album at Bananafish Studio.
