Weekly Faves

Um, to all of you guys that I follow, I have tried and tried and tried all day to comment on your posts and blogger refuses to cooperate. So if no one comments on this, I will totally understand. I am sure you tried your hardest ;).

As I type this we are in the midst of a potential tornado storm. I should be clearing out my pantry of all of the glassware (which is under the stairs), but instead I am watching a DVR’d 16 and Pregnant and, of course, doing this. I pray that I am safe and for all of my fellow Oklahomans (and those in Missouri). And for Pudge. He really has a hard time with this weather.

But on to fun news, I did have a couple of favorites this week. 

I thought this idea of a shadow box from the Tiny Prints blog was such a cute idea. Especially if you know you have a shoe lover on your hand. 

Okay, so I am a little late to the party with this picture, but I thought it was hilarious. I seriously laughed out loud.  via Katie Lately

Don’t these streamer make a huge statement?  What if I told you they made out of scrapbook paper?  Isn’t that so clever?  Get the full tutorial on Sheek Shindigs.

With graduations upon us, I thought these little cupcake toppers were really cute and a fun way to honor your graduate. Photo from Cupcakes Take the Cake.

Do you guys read Knock Off Decor? I hadn’t heard of it until a few months ago until a blog reader (can’t remember which one, but thank you!!!) told me about this site. The site typically has items that you can find in-store or in catalogs and shows you how to make it.  I especially loved this coral that Beth from The Stories from A to Z created to look like Pottery Barn’s coral. To create this, she just went to the fish supply section of Walmart and spray painted their coral white.  Doesn’t it look great?

I lurve this idea from Oh! Crafts. Have you ever seen a more clever use of paint chips?  I think not.  And it is basically free! Though I am sure Lowe’s and Home Depot hate to see this.

Okay, my husband is begging me to watch the news…hope everyone is safe tonight!

  7. I hadn't seen that sign either! Hilarious. What I thought was so funny was the Yahoo headline of (something like) "Rapture Predictor reported 'Tough Weekend'"....yeah, cause last time I checked, making it though the weekend ALIVE was tough, tough, tough.
