Infarrantly Creative

You all know how I LOVE LOVE LOVE a tutorial right? Or give me before and after shots of something you redesigned or painted and I'm putty in your hands.

Beckie from Infarrantly Creative is today's feature!
Beckie has LOTS of tutorials on her site. With lots of photos. Cute Beckie used to live in the NW (actually not far from me, but I didn't know her) and is friends with Shannon from Eight Crazy. Shannon was an earlier feature and she also designed the green Creative Blogs blinkie for me......Thank you again. (she just designed a fabulous cake for her mom's birthday........she's such a show off.) just teasing, I'm only jealous.

Like many of you, I am trying to figure out creative ways to wrap Christmas gifts........or just a creative way to present a gift card. :) I think this Altoids tin is perfect! Beckie's tutorials are very detailed with all the help you may need. She seems sweet as pie, so she would probably answer any questions if you had any.


Bob Evans Mac and cheese? What in tarnation can we do with this?

This, that's what! Look below! What a great way to present holiday baking or fudge for a neighborhood gift.
Now if she is as neurotic as the rest of us, she probably purchased this JUST for the project, not for the food.

Have you ever wanted to make a quilt, but you're all thumbs when it comes to sewing? Or the task seems way too daunting? You may want to try her tutorial. Darling, don't you think?

These cute ornaments have always fell into the "NO WAY! Looks too hard" category for me. If it looks hard, then it must be right? Well, I may just try one this year with Beckie's help. Another great idea for a gift.This last one makes me giggle. It's so cute. Ingenious! See the glue stick?If you have small kids or............boys, then you surely have lots of broken crayons. She took the broken crayons, melted them in the microwave, poured them into the glue stick containers. Of course she took the glue out first. But if you have a child in elementary school, you could probably find lots of empty ones in your child's classroom.Here's where the giggle comes in.

She made a little holster for her son to carry his new crayons in. I bet it "makes his day." (i love a chubby little hand.....i miss that age so much)

My friend Beckie never ceases to amaze me with her creativity. She is willing to try anything and whatever she tries she does it well. I'm so excited that you featured her!
