Stumbled Upon

Lately I’ve been trying out StumbleUpon, a very temperamental little Web tool I might add that only likes some browsers sometimes. It has taken me to some interesting crafting sites such as:

Craft Chi where Amy shares her Rolling Pin Print tutorial. This is perfect for the upcoming gift wrapping season:

The Long Thread where Ellen explains how you can make these very cool thrifted holiday trees from recycled sweaters.

I love these bookmarks that Jaymi designed for D*I*Y Planner. I think I may make them for the members of my analog bookclub.

This is another cool little gift especially for those of us who like to change their art around a lot. Monica of Craftynest had the ingenious idea of turning these pants hangers into picture frames. Next time my daughter’s art teacher decides to clean up her space I’ll be ready!

Since I like clever upcycling ideas, this one by Autumn of Crafting a Green World caught my eye. She recycled brown paper bags into seed packets that she uses as business cards. I’m sure this idea can be further expounded into tea bag holders, envelopes, . . .

By the way, if you haven’t entered the giveaway yet, do so before Wednesday. So far there are 12 entries. Still pretty good odds to acquire the earrings.

    Oh, Stumbleupon. Yeah, that little widget sucked away a LOT of time last year :) I’ve been thinking about re-installing it, though. With my constantly-nursing baby, I spend a lot of time on this computer!

    And hey- 1/12 are GOOD odds for me! Hush now :)

    Thanks for sharing the links! I love SU, their set-up is the tastiest of all the social networking flavors I’ve tried.

    Hi Simone! I am glad that you discovered I had the same name as you and came over to Linden Grove. I am glad I have found your site too. It looks very interesting!
