friday favorites | may 10, 2013

Happy Friday, everyone!

This weekend is going to be somewhat quieter in my little casa without the dual National Scrapbooking Day/Star Wars Day goodness that happened last Saturday, but I'm not complaining because I do love a good, quiet weekend at home!

I'll still be crafting a bit, even without a major holiday prompting me, and I've got a fun round of picks to share this week just in case you're also looking for a little creative inspiration heading into the weekend!
