One Creative Weekend #3

Welcome to One Creative Weekend!  Before we get started, here’s what’s been going on at OneCreativeMommy this week.

Happenings at One Creative Mommy

  1. My girls felt like the cutest kids ever when we finally tried waterfall braids.
  2. I dove into my family blog archives to find pics of our garage makeover.
  3. I posted a free printable, editable grocery list that is perfect for Walmart shoppers, but can be edited to fit any store.
  4. I created my first YouTube Video, and I think it’s pretty funny.  Check it out!  (I know you’re going to be singing Lu’s silly tune all day.)

(Grandma and Grandpa’s new house through the eyes of a five-year-old)

Now, onto the party!  Last week we had 100 entries in the party!  I was absolutely amazed and soooooo happy!  I had a great time responding to each and every post, and I don’t know how I’m ever going to pick favorites.  I’ll give it my best shot!

The fan favorites were:

Braids from DIY Mom

The Mini Hair Series from Adventures of a DIY Mom.  I already featured her posts here.  Thanks for the great tutorials, Rachel!

What Can You Do with an Altoids Tin?

What Can You Make Out of an Altoids Tin? from Katie at The Crafty Blog Stalker.  Katie’s post is what started me on the color-blocking kick!  I just had to show some of my favorite ideas from her post.  She shares 29 different ideas that she has collected from all over the web!  Be sure to check them out.  Many of them are so clever that I might just have to start eating Altoids again!

And now for my favorites:  (I have some others that I will feature later.  I’m saving the ideas for Boo’s B-day party in a few weeks.)

Onesie Baby Gifts

Bonnie, at Simply this and that, shared a great tutorial for the cutest onesies ever!  I think I’m done having babies, so I’ll just have to make these as gifts.  I absolutely love them!  Great job, Bonnie.

Button Headbands

My kids and I can’t wait to make these button headbands (from Snail Pace Transformations for school.  Victoria shares a great tutorial for this simple idea.  Aren’t they cute . . . and they look so simple.

Paper Lollies

These paper lolly centerpieces come from Ashley at Ashley’s Dandelion Wishes.  Don’t you love the colors?  I’ve already tried to make some.  I can’t quite make mine look like Ashley’s, but I’ll certainly keep trying!

Painted Bottles

And, finally, the project I am most excited about–these painted bottles from Liz at Image Remix.  The colors just happen to be exactly what I want to use in my house.  I can’t wait to try this!  Liz shares lots of other neat projects in this post, too.  Be sure to check them all out.  (If you decide to try these bottles, Liz suggests that you check out this post, where she shares hints about choosing the right paint to make your bottles turn out well.)

And now . . . onto the party!  If I featured you this week, please feel free to grab a featured button from here.
