{The Ever Growing Crafty TO DO LIST }

Does anyone ever really catch up on their TO DO LISTS? I'm finding it extremely difficult due to all the incredibly cute stuff I keep finding all over blog land.
(all I have to say is Thank Goodness for Google Reader and it's ability to keep me updated on all my favorite blogs)
Here is what's new to the list as of yesterday:
1. I have to make 1 or 2 of these super cute Valentine chair backers from
Amy at: Our Scoop. She shares the tutorial and pattern on how to make them.

2. To help fill the chair backers I want to make these super cute Fabric Love Letter Envelopes. The tutorial is found over at the Moda Bake Shop.

3. I fell in love with this Re-purposed Woman's Sweater Turtleneck made into a Sweet Little Girls Cardigan, from Lindsay at The Cottage Home I love that she is reusing discarded items and making them into something so dang cute! I better get to the Thrift Stores so I can find me a cute wool sweater to transform.

I find it funny that I have all these sewing projects listed when I don't even really sew well. Looks like I better learn and quick!
And the Grand Daddy of all projects comes from Ana at Knock Off Wood. I am soooo in love with this Farm House Pottery Barn inspired bed. She even shares the pattern and DIY on how to make it. This blog I have a feeling is going to become a really good friend. Lucky for me my husband is more than willing & able to make this for me us, and at a cost of around $120.00 for the whole thing......makes it even sweeter! :)

There is more on my TO DO LIST but if I added them all to this blog post, it seriously would never end.
Have a Happy Thursday!
