Craft #3 - Homage to Ingo - Jessi @ Sweetie Pie Bakery
I chose to interpret the theme of this week for what it was-for you...As in, for me. As crafters, we are often sewing for our children, friends and family. I don't know about you, but I never make time to give something to myself. I thought this week would be the perfect opportunity to do just that. I didn't even have to check a project list to decide what I wanted to work on...
For me, the perfect project is where art, design and craft meet. I want something beautiful, unique, functional and most importantly-doable!
I chose to create a chalkboard for my kitchen, made from an old frame and some broken dishes. It has a wonderful "diner" feel to it. I love that. Scattered and shattered dishes in a bright white, contrasted against the black chalkboard, this piece could go with anyone's decor. It's a great piece of art for our kitchen, and as a bonus, we now have a place to write our shopping lists, schedules or love notes.
Craft #4 -Family Tree File Bag - Shannon @ Shannon Makes Stuff
What is it? You ask. It's a three ring binder camouflaged as a beautiful family tree purse. You can sling it over your shoulder to bring it with you everywhere you go! No need to miss one single day of writing about YOU for all of the yous in your growing family tree.
When opened the inside will be filled with 365 questions that will let those that come after you know YOU. You will also be amazed at the calming affect that writing about you will bring to your life. And it comes in such a fabulous package who could resist?
Tutorial will include the Binder Purse and the 365 Questions to be placed inside!
I believe that there is no better gift to give those after you than to know a little bit about you! And it's also the perfect gift for YOU because you get to pass on the bits of information that are really important to YOU and from your point of view. This is perfect for those of us who wished we wrote in our journals but just don't ever get around to it. And it's perfect for those that do so our future generations know not only about our everyday routine but about the little things that make us who we are! So this gift is for YOU...and you...and you...

Craft #9 - Everyday, Three Way Accessory - Jenny @ jennygarland.com
I am always scrounging around for a chunky necklace or cute scarf to sass up an outfit. Sometimes, it's hard to decide which to choose! (I know, the serious problems in life).So for this challenge, I came up with a necklace/scarf hybrid called the Everyday, Three Way Accessory. It's unique, functional, and best of all super cute!
A funky knot anchors loops and layers of lush jersey knit. Here are three ways you can wear it:
1. Simply throw the Everyday, Three Way Accessory on over a plain tee:
2. Double it up to create a necklace feel:
3. Or pull the ends through and wear it like a scarf:
Dressed up or down, one thing's for sure. You are going to look fabulous wearing it!
