Friday I'm In Love with Great Tutorials!

It's FRIDAY!!  Yippee!  In my household, it is also the first day of summer vacation - school is officially out!  I can't believe how fast this school year went.  This week, I am featuring some amazing tutorials, including one that might keep my daughter busy on those rainy summer days.

The first is this awesome Nautical Rope Spool DIY by Chrissy at My Hoot Designs.  I loved how easy this project was, and how expensive it looks!  Believe it or not, there is a tin can in there!  How great would this look on a summer mantle!! 

Next - check out this Monogrammed Burlap Pillow.  Pam from Simple Details used a Sharpie for this project!  Genious!!  I think this may actually be something I could do.  Uh oh, that means I have to bust out the sewing machine again.  Look out!

This next feature is an awesome tutorial that would keep my daughter busy for hours on a rainy summer day.  How cute are these paper beads?  Krista from MK Inspired has inspired me for sure!  I have a ton of scrapbook paper scraps, and now I know exactly what to do with them!

Shannon from Madigan Made did a guest post on Mod Podge Rocks a few weeks ago and shared this DIY Customized Sunglasses tutorial.  What a great way to transform a blah pair of sunglasses - and once again, a way to use up your favorite paper scraps!!  LOVE these!!

And  finally - I am a sucker for distressed signs.  I could never figure out how to make one that looks as authentic as this one from Desiree at The 36th Avenue. I know!  I have some scrap wood calling my name in the garage!!!

Alright - there you have it!  I hope you are as inspired as me to get moving on some fun projects!!  If you were featured, feel free to grab a button from my sidebar.  Have a WONDERFUL weekend!!
