Favorite Finds Friday

Happy Friday! Ready to see what pretty picks I have for you?
1. This gorgeous art print by Ariana Perez. I seriously want this framed and hanging in my crafty space.
2. This wonderful DIY pull toy by Merete over at One More Mushroom. She provides a tutorial. I want to make one for Charlotte.

3. This layout by Jana Eubank for My Minds Eye. She created a confetti border with MME's enamel dots, and I just love it!
4. This gorgeous hoop art.

5. This lovely layout by Rahel Manig. I love the way she did her journaling strips into little banners. They are so tiny and cute.
I also have a few 'off the record' sort of favorites this week! The first of the two being Elizabeth
Kartchner's newest blog - "Paper Party". She and other scrapbook designers will be showing off projects, providing tutorials, and chit chatting about all the pretty papers!

She will be throwing challenges every week. In her own words... "Every Wednesday, beginning February, Lizzy or another party animal will post a challenge or a catalyst for a project. You will have the week to work on something and post your project to your blog or facebook. Then link here at Paper Party to your project. We call this our “Linky Party.”  We then can be inspired by everyone’s projects and ideas. A big, fat scrap party."

Doesn't it sound like so much fun? I am very excited about it. The blog already has plenty of pretty content on it so be sure to take a look!
The second favorite find of the week is a TV show. Downton Abbey to be precise. I know the show isn't exactly "new" but it's new to me. I noticed a lot of threads about it over at 2Peas and decided to give it a try. I am hooked! I'm currently a few episodes into Season 2.

It captivated me from the start with it's ongoing story line that pulls you in, and the characters that you come to love (or hate) so dearly. The early 1900s was a beautiful time - especially compared to the gauche 21st century we live in today. I love being able to take a glimpse into the past.


  1. Great picks, love the confetti border with the dots :)

  2. Great picks! I love Downton Abbey and have helped many others get hooked too. :)

  3. Love your picks! Have you seen North/South or Upstairs Downstairs? They are two awesome BBC shows that I like even more than DA..
