Feeling Inspired.

I've been feeling so inspired lately, but there's no time to do anything! Just 11 more days of school...

Jen Gotch, of ban.do fame, has a pretty blog and flickr of her polaroids. I want all of them. I also would love for even a couple of my polaroids to look so light...mine always come out looking kind of dark. [The pictures below are from Jen's flickr]

Sprinkle necklaces have been making me happy. I'm sure there is some way to do this myself, but I really like these two, by zombuki and isewcute, respectively.

My catalogued bookmark sites! I had about 570 crafty bookmarks (okay, no, it's not 2000 like I originally thought, but it's close I suppose) that I catalogued last week, or the week before or something, by categories, like paper, wood, lighting, etc. They are in a huge word document right now, and some of the crafts/artsy things I'm looking most forward to do this summer are:

Gift-Wrapping Station from Martha

Some nice applique pillows from design*sponge

I need to find a round ottoman so that I can recreate this look from curbly. I'm going to use my old Catholic school girl skirt :)

"Old Plastic" mosaic - using old credit cards, gift cards, metro cards, etc - to create a bright, colorful picture frame. From Craftystylish

Whew! Well, seeing all of these pretty things makes me want to do all my work right now so that I can get going on crafts now...but that just won't happen yet. Soon, soon, soon...
