friday favorites 9.2.11

Yay! September! We are so close to being into autumn that I can taste it. Autumn is officially my favorite season of the year. Although they say spring signifies new beginnings, I have always associated new beginnings with fall. You start a new school year, and the funnest holidays start with Halloween and go until New Year’s. You can’t go wrong with fall!

friday favorites 7.8.11

I’ve been a reluctant blogger this week. Probably because it was a short week (everyone else’s weekend is my workweek and vice versa. Icky, I know.)

So I’m looking to my friends for inspiration this week, ya know, to get back into the ‘let’s create, then blog about it’ mood. Check out these projects and sites by some wonderful Arizona ladies..

I love this girly clipboard Katie over at Sweet Rose Studio made for a Handmade Gift Exchange. She gives the how-to on her blog..While your there check out her awesome photography skills!

How cute are these canvas letters from Lauren and Michele at Coffee @ 3? Not only are they cute, they are super easy to make! Lots of fun recipes and projects on their blog.

Joanna from Made By Joanna is an amazing baker. She made the personal cakes and cupcakes for AZ Girls’ Night Out that I went to last month, and I’d be lying if I said I only had one. Seriously, I was a glutton and ate two of the Chocolate Caramel Latte Cakes, and I had no regrets. Oh and for sure check out this graduation cake..you’ll be amazed.

When your done eating your dessert first, dive into these healthy Creamy Chicken Taquitos from sweet Whitney at Turbo Bubblegum. They look so good. Whitney is probably one of the luckiest people I’ve ever met..seriously the chick wins everything. She definitely deserves it though!

Happy Canada Day kids! Oh yeah, and that long weekend we refer to as Independence Day Weekend has arrived. Are you ready for hamburgers, hotdogs, potato salad, fireworks and freaked out puppy dogs? Yeah, me too!

I love this Fourth of July Star Jar from Momstastic. It is a painted jar with stars and battery powered candles inside..a safer alternative for the little ones on the Fourth. I think they would look cute lining a walkway or patio too….
