Easy and Fun Projects of 2010 - A Few of My Favorites
My backyard red ginger.
Happy New Year to my fellow bloggers! It's been an inspiring year! Here's a recap of a few easy and fun projects (for me anyway) from this past year. I've tried to give credit where credit is due, so please let me know if you feel I've neglected anyone.
Join Ravelry (it's FREE) to sample any of their awesome easy and fun free patterns. Make a crochet bag in the color of your choice.
This attractive, affordable tropical-style hanging room divider was an easy and fun joint project with my daughter, Riki, in preparation for the opening of her day spa in charming Astoria, Oregon. (Malama Day Spa opened in early October and is truly thriving!)Thank you Astoria! :)
My DIY string lanterns were a little messy in the making, but definitely easy and fun! I feel fortunate again that Craft Gossip decided to show them off too. :) (I LOVE that site; they have the coolest projects from real people.) lol
I was inspired by ALL YOU to plaid paint these metal stools. Easy and fun!
I learned to make the best pillow corner on this pretty petal pillow. See the post for links to the two wonderful ladies with the tutes for the pillow and how to make the best pillow corner.
I made the Top Ten at the DIY Club with this easy and fun spooning project. Craft Gossip also liked it enough to show it on their site. Thanks to both!
I used wood shims to make this fun and affordable wall art I called shim chic. The folks at Lowes Creative Ideas thought it was good enough to share. :)
Cut bamboo and twist wire to make your own plant hangers - another very easy and fun project completed this year.
