Begin Anywhere

My email signature on one account says “Begin Anywhere”.  And so I begin...again.  In an attempt to push myself out of rut and do the things that bring me some joy.

What posts/projects have you bookmarked or pinned lately? Have you added anything to your covet list?

Here’s a roundup of posts/ideas/products that caught my eye:

I *love* a good printable!  (especially when it’s free)  So, “don’t be lazy” ;) head on over to The Crafted Life and grab one (or both).

I’ve been wanting to try a marbling project and this one over at Oh Joy! is at the top of the list. I especially like the idea of keeping my plants out of reach from curious paws.

It says the Hoop Shelf project would only take an hour but I’m not 100% that would apply to me, but I would love to give it a go.

DIY Quilting Kits are amazing! I think I’d like to use the idea as a jumping off point and take it in a slightly different direction.  Time to get my sewing machine a little tune up!

Have you seen the work of Iris Grace? Amazing. I now have a number of her prints on my wish list.  So beautiful!  And how adorable is her therapy cat.  I just want to hug them both!

I lost my little point and shoot camera a couple of years ago and haven’t replaced it.  I’ve solely relied on my trusty iPhone.  But I think I’m ready for a “real” camera again.  This post on
Apartment Therapy got me thinking.  Any camera recommendations?

Another item on my wish list is a craft cutting machine.  I thought the Silhouette was the way to go but have you seen the new Cricut?  Dilemma.

IKEA’s new Papershop has the cutest stuff!  I’m a little sad Canada doesn’t have them yet. The pics in Poppytalk's post were making me ooooh and ahhh!
