Every Monday through Friday for 20 weeks, Ann Wood, of Ann Wood Handmade, made one horse, until she had 100! Each horse is made from cardboard and hand-painted, with cute button joints! Ann currently has the horses as decoration above her bed – don’t you love them? I want to make my own, and conveniently, Ann put together a DIY tutorial for Design*Sponge! Check it out here – even if you don’t want to make a horse it’s pretty cool to see how she did it!

I'm actually not that into horses, but I love this! The second picture is my favorite because of all the varying colors. It would be so fun to decorate a portion of a wall with colored horses. Definitely not your everyday decorating technique.

wrapped yarn

il_430xN.34367835.jpg
There’s something really appealing about these yarn wrapped beads – I don’t know if it’s just that they are so whimsical and tiny, or the colors, or what! They’re made by Maria Cavallero of Argentina, who has many more of these little charmers on her Etsy – take a look if you feel so inclined!
I saw these on Love Forever.

cross stitch clock!

This clock is so awesome! Doe-C-Doe found it when she was thrift shopping for only $5! This is such an inspirational find – it occurs to me how easy it would be to make your own cross stitch clock! I have seen all sizes of clock fixtures at the craft shop for very cheap! It seems like it would be really fun to create your own cross stitch backing with numbers and decoration, and then attach the fixture for the hands!

I’ve been really enjoying the clever images of Sarah Illenberger. She does lots of different work for companies like Vanity Fair, NY Times and Nike, all of which is original and fun like the stuff shown above! Check out her website for more fun stuff.

These chunky felted bead necklaces are so cool! I love how they look, and you know they probably are fun to touch as well! Kleas made the ones shown above with her pre-school class, who then took the necklaces home to their mothers!
She put together some very nice how-to instructions for making the felted beads and the jewelry! It looks really easy and fun, check it out!

I love all these animal charms by Happy Owl Glassworks! There are so many different animals I could never pick one; they’re all too good!
I can’t believe you can get them as night lights, too – that is so awesome! Check out their site here.
