Weekend roundup: 18 Amazing Finds!


Once upon a time when I had more time to blog I would share some of my favorite finds from that week.  The hope was to inspire you and myself to do some of those things from our ever growing pinterest boards. Then life happened and I stopped.  One of my goals for the year is to spend more time on my blog and more time creating.  Over the last couple of weeks I have been making some big changes trying to become a better me.  One of the things I realized I'm missing is taking the time to create. Believe it or not this was once a craft blog and I hope to get back to adding much more of that this year.   In my hello post it says "Here you'll find crafts and tutorials, kids crafts & activities, thrifty decorating, family life, and whatever else comes our way in our "cozy red cottage" and that really sums up where I what I want to get back too...a little bit of everything! I am really excited to see where this will take me and hope you continue to follow along :)  With that being said most of these roundup will be completely random and without a theme...that's kind of how I roll with thing haha.  Also I do have a facebook group called "pinterest tried" that has also been forgotten.  That is another one of my goals is to hang out over there and create a special group that encourages and inspires ourselves and others to create.  I would love for you to join me and share some of your favorite things that inspire you OR some of the things you tried or created! 

Okay lets get started with some of my favorite finds this week!

The first is the cutest crochet pattern from one of my very favorite shops, Nella's Cottage.  If you crochet check her out.  Her appliques and patters are amazing.  This is one of her new ones and all proceeds are being donated to help with the wildfires in Australia.  I can't wait to make something with it!  You can find it  here
