  1. Thanks for these – great ideas! I’m *so* not at all crafty. But sometimes, I get the crafty bug. Nice to know I can pull a project together with what we may have already!

  2. I pinned this late last night, and so far it has been repinned 166 times with 34 likes. Wow! The most popular thing I have ever pinned, and wanted you to know ;) I love your website and ideas. Thanks for sharing them!
