My New Favorite Crafty Read!

Hey guys and dolls!  So I was surfing the web through some mommy blogs, don’t ask why, and it lead me to one crafty mommy blog that has just blown my mind.  Mini Eco is a super cute blog with tons of creative and crafty tutorials for moms/dads and kids to do together.  Check out some of the projects I’m just itching to try.


Take a look at her woven paper art.  I don’t know what I like more about this, the 8-bit look of the art, the rainbow colors, or the fact that it’s woven.  You know what, screw it, I pick all of the above.  It’s just awesome all around.


This next one is so cool. A woven paper topper.  Now first of all I love the newspaper wrapping paper, proving it does not have to be store bought to look good and presentable.  But then you add this rainbow weaving on it and it takes on a whole new look and personality.  Love it.


And a last one are these color pencil beads.  I especially love what she did here with the points and the bead combo.  Love the bright color too.  There is a tutorial  on a blog I found Mino Eco through called Design Mom.  She shows in detail how to get these point beads and also how to get smaller beads by shaving off some of the end of the pencil. I am so going to try these and soon.

Honestly there is nothing on the site I don’t just find fascinating.  And before you begin to wonder, no I don’t know who runs the site, but I wish I did.  I would love to pick her brain on where she comes up with her awesome ideas.  Her blog is just so amazing there isn’t a post that I don’t want to read.  Speaking of reading, I’m off to read some more of her blog.  I hope you will read her blog too and ooh and aah over the many cool things she shares.  Talk to you lovelies later.

Rainbow paper and color pencil beads,
