Things to make

First, download yourself an orange April computer desktop calendar from Smashing Magazine. Click here and scroll down a bit.

Second, take a look at these crafty projects you could make:
Boxy zippered pouch at Three Bears
Origami Japanese maple leaf at Yasumoto
Decorative switch plates at Pink Chalk Studio
Pleated tote bag from Artsy-Craftsy Babe
Terrarium from Inhabitat
Image transfers using clear packing tape at Wishing on Clovers
Lace earrings at Minding Prismera
Re-covered lampshade at Howcast
Lamps made from bottles at Hallmark Magazine

Hey, I made one of those boxy bags just last Friday. But I used Dragon(knit)fly's directions here.

That one is lined and has a handle.

Thanks for the links!

Knowing that you love orange (as do I) I thought you'd like to know that over at Toast and Tables, Sarah has posted a love piece about incorporating orange into your table setting. I fell in love. :) http://toastandtables.blogspot.com/2008/04/orange-spruce-using-oranges-in-your.html
