Friday Faves 2/8/13

These are some of my favorite blog posts from the week. Hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

 I LOVE this DiY shoe makeover! Ribbons and rosettes always get me going. ;)
 These heart shapped pretzels are easy as pie.  Add a bit of pink sea salt and you've got the yummiest loviest treat ever!
This method for tying a scarf is so rocking! It looks so much tougher and more intricate than it actually is. Horray for cute and easy!

Easy Crochet Flower Magnets

Spring is my favorite time of the year, and, here in Florida, spring pretty much starts in February. So to celebrate the Florida beginning of this great season, I thought I'd make some pretty (and easy) flower magnets!


Yarn in Your Favorite Colors (I used a DK weight acrylic yarn)
4.25mm Crochet Hook
Magnets (I bought this roll at Hobby Lobby for $2.99)
Hot Glue Gun

CH: Chain
SL ST: Slip Stitch
DC: Double Crochet
DC2TOG: Double Crochet 2 Together
DC3TOG: Double Crochet 3 Together

CH 5, join to 5th chain from hook with a SL ST.

Round 1:
CH 2, DC2TOG (counts as 1st DC3TOG) into center, 5 DC3TOG (all into center), SL ST to top of 1st 
DC3TOG to join.

Round 2: 
(CH 1, 3 DC, CH1, SL ST all into same space as join, SL ST into to top of next DC3TOG), repeat around 6 times. 

Fasten off and weave in ends. 

Finish by cutting a 1 inch by 1 inch square magnet from the roll. Use the hot glue to attach this to the back of your flower. Repeat as many times as you'd like for the perfectly spring decorated refrigerator.

Hello, February!

Here are some lovely little Valentine's day themed crafts for you to share with your all special sweethearts.

For your family:
These adorable pipe cleaner hearts make the perfect topping for your love's breakfast. This is an especially good idea for those of you (like me!) who just cannot master heart shaped pancakes.

For your friends:

No matter how old I get, I will not stop loving friendship bracelets. And a friendship bracelet with hearts?  Definitely a to do! I know what my coworkers are getting for Valentines day!!

For you:
I'm a big fan of making myself little gifts too and this embroidered heart pin cushion seems to be such a fun project.  Does any one else seem to have more pin cushions than pins? I just love how quick, easy, and practical pin cushions are!
