Craft Ideas + The First of June

1. This is really cute. These are maps from where a person was born or grew up. I plan on making this either this next week. The girl that represents me will be from Baltimore, Maryland. Jason's boy character will be from Scottsdale, Arizona. I feel very lucky to have grown up in Maryland. It is a beautiful place, and there is so much of our country's history there. I miss the trees, and the seasons. I don't know where we are going to move when Jason is done with school, but I do know that somewhere along the east coast is on the table.

2. This is another ah-mazing idea. It is a map of where you and your love met. Our's will be Arizona, and the heart (the city) will be Scottsdale. I think we are for sure doing this little project this weekend. To Michael's we go!

3. I've been thinking about doing silhouettes for a long time now. This is definitely going to be a project I'm working on in the next week or so. I'm in a crafty mood, can you tell? Well, I'm almost always in a crafty mood ;)

4. I love when you can make things customizable with your own photographs. It takes a normal everyday object into something that really says "you".

5. I wear a lot of cardigans, so this could be pretty cool to add on to one of them. I'm thinkin' a blue cardigan with red hearts.

6. When I do this for me, I picture it in blue and as an anklet.

7. I love succulent plants! This looks like fun :) Definitely a must try!

That's all the crafty ideas on my agenda. I hope to do all these within this month, and write about how it all went down. Happiest first of June!


  1. These are such great ideas!! I've always wanted to add heart elbow pads to a cardigan!
    Thanks for your comment on my blog.
    Do you want to follow each other?

  2. Your blog is cute, heck yeah I want to follow you ;)

  3. I have the heart elbow pinned on my pinterest and i love the heart string map! Haven't seen that & totally stealing it!

  4. I know both of those are cool, and I can't wait to try them :)

  5. Fun crafts. I wish I had the time to make them.

    1. Well it looks like you're gettin' crafty in your home. I'm really excited to renovate a house one day :)
