What I found in my reader this week...

How has your week been? Mine has been crazy. Halloween just passed and my head is already spinning. I can't believe that it is Novemeber and we are officially into the holiday season. All I can think about is what the heck I am going to get everyone for Christmas and what I really want to be spending all 5 minutes of free time doing is crafting! I miss crafting! 
Okay, my dream to-do list just got a lot longer. I say "dream" because with our needy newborn these days, I can barely shower everyday, let alone find time for fun crafts. I found lots of cute things in my Google Reader this week. Granted, I am playing a little bit of catch-up from the last few weeks so some of it is a little more than a week old, but cute none-the-less. Check this stuff out:
 This owl bunting is super cute! Seriously, I love it. You can find the tutorial by Spunky Junky here.
 This fabric braid bracelet would be a great gift or stocking stuffer for the fashionista in your life. You can find the tutorial by Kim at Everything Etsy here.
 I AM planning on making some of these. This is too cute and easy to pass up. Find the chalkboard frame tutorial by Bless Our Nest here.
 This is not so much a tutorial as it is a GREAT idea. Check out the lunchbox basket idea by Nesting Place here.
 Look at this gorgeous ruffle scarf. If I have said it once, I have said it a million times, I LOVE ruffles! Check out the tutorial by Living with Punks here.
 Um, is this not precious? Take your old tshirts and make an adorable dress for your little girl with this tutorial. Check out the upcycled tshirt dress tutorial by I am Momma Hear me Roar here.
 Look at this pillow! It is so pretty and funky at the same time. You could totally do it in a variety of fabrics to make it fit any decor. Check out the tutorial by JCasa Handmade on the Sew Mama Sew blog here.
Okay, this idea is wonderful and so timely. I have been looking at camera bags lately and just cannot get over the prices. I will be following this tutorial at some point because it just makes sense! Get the camera bag insert tutorial by Lil Blue Boo here.

Great stuff, huh?!?! I hope you get inspired with these great tutorials. Have a wonderful, and crafty, weekend.

PS- If you do not already follow these blogs, I highly recommend them. They are full of crafty and inspirational goodness:)
