On Fridays I recap some fantastic finds from around the world wide web. Happy Weekend!

great FABRIC: My 8.5 year old son is often aggravated because I tend to sew more for his sister than him. I tell him that I would be happy to make a dress for him, but he doesn’t take the bait 😉 There just aren’t a whole lot of awesome fabrics out there for boys or patterns for that matter. That said, the new Camp Sur line by Jay-Cyn Designs is awesome. It is right up my son’s alley with camping and fishing and everything else he loves. Now I just need to find a pattern!

to whet your APPETITE: This week I made vanilla pudding. It was amazing and super simple. Go make some.

be NATURAL and NEAT (as in organized): This is an awesome printable that lists all sorts of cleaning tips using stuff you should already have in your home. No excuse for armpit stains now!

a TUTORIAL to do: I’m actually looking at a Friday morning and weekend with no open orders! This emerson tunic dress tutorial is top of my list. My sewing machine is dying to do something besides sew on velcro!

on AIMEE’s to do list (that’s me by the way): My goal this next week is to get my Martha of the Month post up before the last day of the month this month! It’s gonna happen and you aren’t going to want to miss this month. A super easy and cute gift to make.

something to SEW: I’m horrible when it comes to making ruffles. This little post on how to make a ruffle 7 different ways looks super helpful.

to TRIM my house with: We’ve been without house numbers for a while now, which I’m sure is probably breaking some kind of law or something. I just didn’t want to buy anything standard out of the box from a hardware store, I wanted something special. I’ve had my eyes on a set of house numbers made by burning fork studio every since I met Lahla and with our anniversary looming in the next couple of weeks, I think I might just break down and finally order some.

INSPIRATIONAL: I’m sitting at the edge of my little daisyeyes handmade actually growing into something. The time and space seems to be continuing in the next year and I realized that if I’m going to keep going I need to get some education on some things. Renee Pearson offers all sorts of online classes about a million different things and has awesome reviews. From lessons on adobe illustrator to simple iphone photography, truly inspirational.

CUTE: This is a shameless plug for my new fairy crown and wand sets. I sent a mock-up set to my college roommate for her daughter and she took some awesome and totally cute pictures of her sweet little chick using the sets in action. I couldn’t help but share.
