Happy Friday friends! About time, right? It’s been raining non-stop in Portland, but thankfully the internet never disappoints. Now, if I could only find the time to do all of the projects I’ve come across lately!  Here are some links to inspire your weekend making:

– I would eat dinner at home every night if my table looked like this!

– This interview with Jen Gotch is just as amazing as you might think it would be.

– Must make some large scale art asap!

– Turn your old sweaters into cute hats.

– How have I not tried this technique yet– it’s amazing!

– The prettiest globe makeover I’ve ever seen.

Weaving by @thecraftedlife via Instagram(Weaving via Instagram)

Earlier this week I took a weaving class, and it dawned on me– it’s been FOREVER since I actually got to do such a thing. It’s so refreshing to get out and make with others, I forgot how much I missed it. Also, weaving is amazing. Have you ever tried it before?

Now, on to the (fun) business:

– I made this decorative leaf mobile for Curbly last week!

– It’s been a while since I’ve done a project using leather. These keychains have my brain stirring with potential Christmas gift ideas!

– Speaking of leather, I’m pretty sure that my new office would use a few (dozen) of these.

– The best brunch cocktail I’ve ever seen.

– My friend Heather opened her shop this week and I want everything!

– There’s still one day of the month left to make this awesome origami project.

Have a wonderful and safe Halloween weekend everyone! If you happen to know any great (and easy) last minute costumes, please, dish in the comments below. I’m totally stuck this year!


Happy Weekend!

It’s happening, folks! Finally! Next week is the big garage makeover reveal. I have tons of before/after shots, tutorials, and even a fun video for you, so I hope you’ll come back to check it out. I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been up to. Now, on to the weekend links:

– Have you entered this giveaway yet? I don’t know about you, but I could always use more fancy spray paint.

– Learn how to frost the perfect cake. It’s almost too pretty to eat… almost.

DIY wall art that looks like it cost $100.

– Blown away by these DIY Napkins AND that styling!

– If you love gold leaf and jewelry as much as I do, you’ll definitely want to make these.

Have a great weekend! And don’t forget to tag your projects with #mycraftedlife, so I can follow along to what you’re making <3

I’ll take a dozen, please.

– Such a brilliant technique for making your own gold foil prints.
