Friday Favorites - September 13, 2013

I am so happy that the weekend is nearly here! Tomorrow we're off to the state fair, and then on Sunday it'll be a mad crafting session, interspersed with a few mini mad house-cleaning sessions. If you'll be crafting, too, then perhaps something from this week's roundup will inspire you!

  • Katie at Punk Projects posted a tutorial showing how to turn an old pair of jeans into a Kindle cozy.
  • Christmas mini albums are starting to appear, and Danielle Flanders has put together a lovely example using Pink Paislee's new Snow Village collection.
  • Nerd Fitness has an excellent article on the Pareto (80/20) principle that's as applicable to crafting (and any other area of life) as it is to fitness!
  • Photojojo has some great tips for making the most of Instagram's new video feature.
