Friday Favorites

I've made an executive decision. My friends will tell you I'm really good at making executive decisions, even when there really isn't one to be made. Anyway, I'm officially declaring Fridays to be "Friday Favorites" blogging day. Every Friday, I'll post some of my new favorite things and all ten of you who read this blog should do the same on your blog. As a mom and crafter, I love hearing about new products, techniques, etc. that other moms/crafters have come across. I would really like it if a few other bloggers would participate in sharing your favorites and if some of your favorites happen to be products from other Etsyers, even better!

My first fave is this new skirt I got from Kohl's. I'm usually not a skirt person, partly because I'm tall and have trouble finding skirts that are long enough. Also, a lot of skirts just feel too formal for my mommy life but this one is like wearing a tshirt so I feel really comfortable in it. I got a bright green tshirt to match it and really like how it all looks together.














Next is my new "Mom" pillow from fellow Etsy seller, Marie (bellamariedesigns). It's really well made and looks so cute sitting on my big comfy chair in my craft room. I have another pillow with Bella's name on the way and think it will be the perfect finishing touch for her bed.
















And lastly, my new, absolutely adorable wood family painted by Lena. I saw this listing on Etsy but the seller wasn't listing them anymore. Asked Lena if she'd be interested in a trade and lucky me, she agreed. She spent way more time on them than I wanted her too and I think I said the word "obsessed" to her one more than one occasion. But I couldn't be happier with how they turned out. They're so cute and personal and I think they're even better than the original listing that inspired us. And you have to admit, I look pretty damn good in wood form:)

Good idea Kelci-I love hearing new techniques and faves from others. I'll be jumping on the Friday favorites bandwagon as well. That wood family is sooo cute and that sure looks a lot like Crafty Papa! Lena did a great job! And I'm glad you like the pillow, it looks cute there.
