Recent Social Media Inspiration

0

I am a crazy person when it comes to social media.  I follow so many people/places/establishments on Instagram that it’s embarrassing.

But, from this weird obsession habit, I get tons of inspiration.  Tons.  Quotes, beautiful pics, things I want to make, things I want someone else to make, etc.

So every few weeks, I am going to round up what is inspiring me through social media.  I usually just screen shot what I like and then go back and try to pin it later.  So here are lots and lots of screen shots.

(Photo Creds:  The screen shot USUALLY includes the Instagram screen name, if not, I’ll do my best to link up.)

 

Such a great idea for scrapbooking!  Maybe at the beginning of Cam's Kindergarten scrapbook.

Funny.  Have no idea where this came from, but it covered the interwebs a few months ago.  I think I screen shotted it from Ellen Degeneres.

When you copy other peoples "original" scrapbook layouts, it's informally called scraplifting.  I would like to scraplift this, stat.

I Make Things

I like to make things.  A lot of different things.  My PINTEREST profile description is “Wife of One.  Mommy of Three.  Crafter of Many.”  It’s true.  

So hopefully every Tuesday, I can update you on what I am working on.  I am ALWAYS working on more than one thing.  Always.  

Here are this weeks.  They both happen to be crochet projects, which I do a lot of.  Senior year of college I taught myself how to crochet, and I have been going strong since.  I love doing it.  It keeps me calm.  It let’s me be creative.  I get an awesome finished project at the end that I get to give to someone.  My main gig is blankets (we call them Kiki’s), but I like to make hats and scarves and other smaller crochet projects. 

The first is a college graduation gift I am making for one of my former students that I still keep in touch with.  She is an awesome girl and graduating from Pepperdine in April!  Her favorite color is purple and I was inspired by this picture (I tried to get the link to credit this pic, but Pinterest said it was a suspicious link.  The bottom of the pic does say cutestfood.com, so we’ll go with that.) :

So far, I have just started the cream, but these are the colors that will be used throughout.

The second is a baby blanket for someone special (who will remain nameless until she decides to announce).  They are Broncos fans, and probably not going to find out the sex of the baby.  I thought this baby Bronco yarn was perfect!  I am going to go with a polka dot pattern, I think.
