Your posts always end up with me adding projects to my to-do lists!

I'm definitely making that yardstick coat rack and the napkin rings (those would make great hostess or housewarming gifts.)

Ooh, that silkscreen project looks like so much fun. Thanks for sharing this list!

I spent last night working on a Martha Stewart design. A friend of mine is getting married, and found a MS pattern for paper flowers. Tedious as anything, but very cute results.
