Stuff I like Sunday #1

***Simply Living has moved!  Come check us out at for new updates ***

Since most of my inspiration comes from searching the web and checking out all your lovely projects, I decided to create a day for some of my favorite finds.  Welcome to the first Stuff I like Sunday!  Each Sunday I will feature 5 things that I have bookmarked for future projects I can't wait to try.

Each time I borrow an idea for a project I always link back to where I found the project, but I decided a little extra shout out never hurts!  If your project is one of the 5 I feature, feel free to grab my featured button, or Stuff I like Sunday found on the right side, or found here:

#1: First up is the lovely Valentine Art work Maggie from Black and White created:

Isn't it absolutely adorable?  I love that something so simple was created in Word!  I don't have photoshop on my computer, so I love ideas like this that don't involve any fancy and expensive programs.  Thanks for the great Valentine Idea Maggie!

#2:  I'm loving the felt Dahlia Katie made over at Food Wine & Mod Podge.  The name of her blog alone confirms that she's a woman after my own heart!  Check out how cute!

I've been doing a lot with felt lately, as you can tell, and can't wait to give this flower a try.  It looks a bit time consuming, so it might have to wait for a while, but I think that it is just absolutely stunning.  Great work Katie!

#3:  The super cute and incredibly functional boot tray Ashli made over at Maillardville Manor:

Talk about simple, functional, cheap, and cute.  With winter (eventually) ending, and spring rain on its way, I think this would be a great project to get ready.  Sure beats all the puddles on the kitchen floor!  Love the idea Ashli!

#4:  I instantly fell in love with Alisha's Valentines Topiary Tree over at Homemaking Honeys.  How cute!

I've already been working on some Valentine themed Topiaries, but with a different colored ribbon I think this would be great for other holidays, or even as a Christmas tree ornament with a little ribbon loop attached to the top.  Can't wait to give it a try, thanks for the inspiration Alisha!

#5:  The final project that really caught my eye this week was Sabrina's adorable party invitations:

Once again, what a simple way to create a project without the expensive and extra programs, I already have powerpoint on my computer, score!  Can't wait to throw a party and put my own spin on this invitation idea.  I'm sure the shower was a hit, thanks for the fabulous tutorial Sabrina!!

You all have instilled so much inspiration in me, can't wait to find the time to give some of these a spin!  Stop in next Sunday so see 5 more things I like!

Happy Sunday Everyone!
