Yarn, and sweaters and cupcakes, OH MY!

So much yarny, sweatery goodness!!  Seriously these 2 ladies come up with THE BEST DIY Projects!!!
1st: Some wrist warmers made out of an old sweater....
the link is below the picture, go check it out
and don't her nails look GREAT for a crafter? Seriously!

and then this....
Pillows from sweaters!!! 
You seriously need to check out her blog (the link is below the picture).
  I think even I can do this! Don't judge if I use a glue gun instead of a zipper though...you know who you are!
and you know me...not so crafty with a sewing machine, much better at "hookin'" it... that's the word on the street anyway!
Here's what I'm up to:
Darling Daughter wanted a cupcake scarf.  I'm using the Twinkie Chan pattern from her new book:
Ok, I'm off and running for the day...I've got a major re-do of my lower level! I started going thru my pictures yesterday and had a mini panic attack...SO many pictures....so, so many!  I decided I have to move my photo stuff OUT of my studio and set up an area for JUST scrapbooking...wish me LUCK!
and...if you see an old Volvo wagon loaded down like the Beverly Hillbillies...it's just ME headed to Goodwill!
Anyone else doing the New Year cleanse?

Those wrist warmers and pillows are FABULOUS!

LOL @ the Beverly Hillbillies!

Yup, I am purging too at my house and it feels great to declutter!

You always make me laugh.

I love those wrist warmers and the pillows. What a cute idea. And the cupcake scarf is adorable. I gotta get that book. Makes me want to run right out to the thrift store and Joanns for yarn. But wait, too much Ice out there-I'll never make it.

I've been purging, reorganizing and cleaning. I hate spring cleaning (want to be out planting things) so I prefer winter cleaning.

Thanks for all the great inspiration.
