Friday faves

Happy Friday the 13th! Some people seem to think this day is unlucky, but I always seem to have great days on Friday the 13th. So let's hope today is just as awesome as the other days have been.

This is a super cute gift idea for gifting cupcakes. And who doesn't love a cupcake?!

I've been searching for a travel neck pillow, but none seem to be what I'm looking for. I don't know why I hadn't thought of making one myself, and with this tutorial, it'll be easy.

The girls over at A Beautiful Mess shared these great tips for making your pictures more vibrant using Photoshop. I love learning new Photoshop tricks!

This is such a perfect summer accessory. It's a towel with a blanket/towel and then it rolls up into a tote with a pocket, so you can take all the essential with you. Such a great idea.

These cookies look yummy and seem so fun to make with kids. I may have to make these with my nephew Xander next time I go visit him.

These are another great addition for the summer, drink holders. The site says they are great for the beach, but I think they'd be great in the backyard too. They would even be cute to hold candles or other decorations for a party.

This little cape pattern is so awesome. I may have to whip one of these up for a few weddings that I'll be attending in the fall and winter. It's the perfect coverup and I love that it's so retro.

Check out my friend Jenni's new blog, Just Dandelion Wishes. Jenni is getting fit and you can follow her on her journey on this new blog. She's totally honest about the journey she's taking to lose weight and she's totally inspiring. She keeps me motivated to keep working out!

The trailer for The Great and Powerful Oz is up and it looks amazing. I can't wait to see this!

I'm looking forward to the weekend, I'll be teaching a sewing Crafter-noon and then hanging out with a friend, and hopefully doing some shopping too. I hope you all have a great weekend.
