Do We Already Have a Post Called "Inspiration?"

I was thinking about this blog and how busy everyone is and how maybe you all are getting a wee bit bored of the same old girl dresses (that's redundant) that I keep making and posting. For example, if you knit, I can see how it's not all that inspirational to look at sewing posts all the time. So, I was thinking about this and thought that I would share some links to cool things that people are doing around the blogosphere and hopefully this will inspire you to share something, anything, even if it's just a totally cool crafty blog that you found.

-First, Randi got some friends together and started to post often on her Me and My Girl blog. Even if you don't have a daughter (yet) some of the ideas they are posting there are totally cool. The girls and I did this one recently.

-I often want to buy bath bubbles but I never want to spend the money at Bath and Body Works. Angry Chicken has a post up about making your own bath tub melts. I think I'm going to try this soon.

-Wee Wonderfuls has some of the classiest crafts! I think these barrettes are so cool and look very easy to make.

-Katherine Donaldson makes custom counting beanbags. I think this is such a great idea.

-You can use this wrap skirt tutorial to make skirts for yourself, your daughter/niece or their dolls! Neat!

-What She Did Today has knitted so many things I couldn't pick just one to show you. Make sure you scroll down a few posts to see the ruffled dress she knitted. It is ssoooo cute!

-Ever intimated about making different printed fabrics "go?" Vintage Threads has a really good tutorial on how to make it work.

-Turkey Feathers has the most beautiful embroidery work I've seen on the web...not that I have seen everything there is to see on the web. Check it out.

-Check out this really cute idea for wall art at Creative Little Daisy. I think I'll employ this idea if we get the house.

-Having a baby girl? Or know someone who is? Here's a free pattern for the cutest little baby girl dress!

OK, I don't want to overwhelm you. I'll try to get more knitting links in there next time. Hope you get some inspiration from these.
