BROWSING BLOGLAND (and other fun websites, too)

One of the ways I find inspiration is by browsing through blogs and websites and seeing what other people are up to and what new and exciting product is out there that I absolutely cannot live without.  It's amazing how creative people are.  Seriously, what will they think of next?  I love being bombarded with colorful projects that I can dream about doing and unique items that I can put on my wish list.  It makes me want to create something new and beautiful, too, to add to blogland.  So here's the newest installment on the blog that I like to call....Browsing Blogland (and other fun websites, too).

1.  How cute are these fabric covered cork boards?  This is a project made just for me--easy and quick.  

2.  These are drawer/shelf liners if you can believe it.  I can't!  Why didn't they have these three years ago when I was moving into my house and only had old fashioned flower motif and plain white liners to choose from?  I'm trying to do the math in my head on how many drawers and shelves I could line with 6ft.  I'm terrible with picturing measurements in my mind.  They aren't the typical $2.99, but they sure would make my blah, brown kitchen pop when you opened a drawer.  And they're scented!  They're like a fun, colorful, delightful-smelling surprise!  

3.  I've thought about jazzing up plain old party hats before, but have never had the time before an event.  This is an even better idea--force people to make their own party hats and wear them around all night!  I love this party hat making station idea from Oh Happy Day.  
4.  Have you heard of poptails?  Apparently, I really missed the boat on this one.  I could have been enjoying these things all summer.  I am making it my mission to try making a frozen cocktail before the leaves change color.  Challenge accepted.
5.  Swoon.  I've been eyeing this peter pan collar for a few months now.

Found any DIY projects or cool things around the internet lately?  Share in the comments below!


  1. Poptails! I need to make it my mission to try one this summer too. Fortunately (unfortunately?) I have a fair amount of time before any leaves start changing color. Love the fabric of that collar, too.

  2. OMG. THAT COLLAR. I am in love. I need this in my life!

  3. I love finding new DIY projects! I'm always making something around here so looking at projects on blogs is super inspiring. That shelf liner is AMAZING and I can't believe it's scented, too! I've never seen any liner even slightly that exciting. Also, the fabric on that collar is absolutely beautiful!

  4. Wow on the drawer liners! They are so fun and scented?!?! NICE! I love that collar. I always smile when I see that fabric. It's the same one I used for my camera bag. Seems a lot of people loved it as much as I did. Why don't you try and make it yourself??

    Thanks so much for linking up to my party! :)

    Have an awesome weekend Kari!

  8. A friend and I were just looking at cork boards in a craft store the other day. I'm going to pass this idea long to her, because goodness knows she has the fabric for it!
