I think we can all agree that chalkboard paint is all the rage right now! I love it and can't wait to use it on something, anything! Here is another great idea from Oopsey Daisy

Decor Chick! has an awesome DIY tutorial on Fall Topiaries. She saw some at Michael's for $19.99/each and they weren't that cute. So she bought the supplies and made 2 that are gorgeous for half the price of one. Here are some photos!
C.R.A.F.T. is a great new blog I found. They just posted a "Back to School Round Up! 15 fun things for back to school" list with links to other blogs. Very cute ideas! Click on the link above to check it out. Here are some of the ideas.....
Brown Paper Packages has another great tutorial!
Click the link to learn how to make this great flannel board/white board! Super easy. I already have a white board that I use for work, so I plan on making the other side a flannel board now.

Lindsay passed along this link to Prudent Baby for these adorable baby shower mustaches! Thank you for the link! Anytime y'all (i think I have 4 total readers) find something cute, send it along! haleyuns at gmail dot com. Oh and speaking of Lindsay, did you see my new awesome "Auntie Lolo Crafts" button on the right side of the blog? Thank you Lindsay!!
P.S. I had never been on Prudent Baby's website before this and holy cow it rocks! She even has a book coming out and I can see why!
What a great idea! Dandee Designs has a tutorial on how to make this simple puppet theater. I can only sew a straight stitch and half the time I cannot even accomplish that, but I could even make this! And I will be. I don't know who I am giving it to yet but I think it would be a great Christmas present. One of the things I love most about it, is that it's for babies and toddlers as you will see in the photos. I also love that this is a really inexpensive project. You could use an old sheet or scrap fabric to make it. Also you could make it simple like this one, or embellish it!
I love nap time shared a tutorial on how to make Camping Butt-kets. If you camp a lot, you are definitely going to want to make one of these. I wish I would have had it at girls camp! This is what you start with....

Don't you love this temple block? Lil Luna is sharing the files for FREE. She has lots of different temples on her site that you can print out. She also has a tutorial. So nice of her!
Here are a few of my favorites...

Brown Paper Packages has given me a great Christmas Gift idea for the nieces and nephews. It's a burlap Tic-Tac-Toe board that is huge! She also personalized it for her kids names. She gives a full tutorial on how to make it and it looks pretty easy and doesn't use a lot of materials.
One of my favorite things ever is when you find something super expensive and make it for super cheap! It's such a wonderful feeling! Imperfectly Beautiful made my day with this post. She found the photo below in Ballard Designs.
It would have cost $300 to buy this. No not the hutch, just the letters saying CREATE :) Here is the version she came up with for less than $8.00!! That's a savings of $292.
She used embroidery hoops, her cricut machine and some linen she had lying around. She was going to try and find some circle frames at thrift stores but then just couldn't wait. Um, I LOVE it.
Lyndsey's Craft Spot just shared a tutorial on how to make this cute growth chart. I love this idea especially for people like me, who move all the time. When I have kids it would be nice to have a piece of wood that we could move from house to house with their growth on it. Very good gift idea. Easy and cheap to make!
