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.

Ah! Almost too cute- Carina of Carina’s Craft Blog made this little crochet holder for her lip balm! It’s so pretty, and if you are the type that needs your lip balm always handy, really useful! Check out the tutorial she made here!
I love this awesome idea for a deer head decoration from doe-c-doe! She used the pattern from a vintage transfer (the middle picture) and embroidered the deer’s features onto the fabric, then backed it with 1/2″ foam core. Doesn’t it look awesome?!
Be sure to check out doe-c-doe, it’s good!
I couldn’t resist posting a few of these pictures from a little editorial in the April Jalouse Magazine! They are stitched representations of various designers by Olympia Le Tan – I wish her website were finished! I also wish these pictures had scanned a little better, because in the magazine they are just so cute!
