I simply couldn’t resist mentioning the article on how to make a compost bin that was recently posted on Craftzine. Though composting is something you can get into any time, I feel like spring cleaning is a great time to start something like this! It’s really easy too, and it seriously cuts down the amount of waste coming from your home, besides making all your trees and flowers happy! Plus who doesn’t want to feed cute little worms?!

Plus they look really cute! Check out her candy sushi how-to to make your own tasty set!

Do you like these pretty lights? They’re made from egg cartons! Apartment Therapy has some tips for making your own set. They would be perfect for an evening on the porch in the summertime, don’t you think?
While I personally am not ready to drop 20$ for one of these little apple cozies, I do think they are a really cute and cool idea! No more bruises, I suppose. I love the leaf embellishment also!

I am so inspired by this beautiful crochet blanket from the ladies of The Purl Bee. I love the idea to just make one giant Granny Square as a blanket. The colors are gorgeous too! But the best part is that they have a really good tutorial for making Granny Squares! Now I just need to graduate to making giant Granny Squares.
One of our former design team employees, Michelle, recently dug up our Art Director Doub’s glove project from many years ago, and posted it on her blog! You can see it above, it’s pretty fabulous – I couldn’t resist sharing it with you guys as well!
Here’s a little note from Doub about where the inspiration for this project came from: Well what became fascinating for me when I started the glove project was how elaborately detailed each pair of gloves were. And with each glove it’s delicate little details really dictated each design. I had become obsessed with gloves and was scouring the city for them mainly for the strange need to cut one of the pair up into a silhouette. I still have such an appreciation for the amazing craftsmanship and design of gloves.
It really is a very inspiring project! And speaking of inspiration, our friend Michelle’s blog is called Inspiration Resource, and aptly so! You should definitely check it out if you feel so inclined…
