Dear Readers, Craft Schooling Sunday is finally international, actually and really! It's so exciting to have crafters from around the world convene on my little blog, and I hope we'll continue to span the globe, inspiring one another and learning a bit about life elsewhere. A bit of blog armchair traveling if you will!
Last week there were participants from: South Africa, France, Israel, USA, Germany, Norway, Sweden and Paraguay! Isn't that amazing? I hope we'll continue to meet more bloggers from around the world, so do tell your friends, even if their blog isn't in English!
Last week ALL the entries were amazing, and it was so hard to choose which ones to feature as there was also a really great mix of kid's crafts and projects for mom as well. Here are some of my favorites:
First and foremost, I was so very excited that karenmarie from Sweden dropped by! Like really excited! My husband couldn't understand what the big deal was, but I can't begin to explain how inspired I was by her site even though I couldn't read it! I just love Scandanavian style everything and I love the unexpected color combinations she chose in this beautiful quilt, as well as her decorating style in this wonderful bedroom!
Continuing the beautiful pastel color theme, I just love this little piece from Amy at dasalinger, and the sweet cards that she made to go with it. And this vintage wall paper covered shelf by imittlunehi from Norway is so stunning it looks great empty!
Don't these felted eggs from helenclyde look gorgeous? It just so happens that eggs play a major role in the Pesach holiday too, so how about making some for a Seder play set? And I just fell in love with this simple bookend, another project from Amy at dasalinger, there is just something so sweet about it!
Can you believe that thehillsarelivin used a bride's maid skirt to make these pillows? Love the color! And Remodelaholic made this great faux mosaic wall art from squares of paper. You can see her tutorial over at ucreate. Yes, you'll need some patience, but I think the results are fabulous! She's always got something great up her sleeve!
Masteringeverydaycrafts did a great job recovering this chair in the happy Ikea fabric, and these windsocks by childhoodmagic (shown before assembly here) made from glue batik are just too gorgeous! The "batiking" process calls for a certain brand of elmer's glue which I don't think I can get here in Israel, so I'm planning to do some research and come up with an alternative. Can't wait!
You may remember me saying in a previous party that Kalleen from atsecondstreet was a top notch crafter, well she continues to prove me right with this ingenious dinosaur playscape in a suitcase! And I just love these hand-sewn magnetic book markers from is-five, a sweet project to satisfy that need to make something!
I wanted to share this collage from found objects by tamdoll with you because it's just so very creative! And this box made from rolled magazine pages by lifewithliane is a great recycling project for anytime! Okay, that's all for now, weren't those projects great? I can't wait to see what will surprise us this week! I love these parties, a little bit of planning, no cooking, no cleanup and pure fun! Thanks again to all of you who linked up last week!
And now, let the party begin! Please put the name of your country first, and link back to the party, with a badge or text link. Thanks so much for stopping by!
