I have to confess I completely forgot about this great idea I had for a a recurring post called Want, Need, Wear, Make, Eat. It’s a riff on the idea that children’s Christmas lists should be four things, Something You Want, Something You Need, Something to Wear and Something to Read. Except I switched Read with Make (as in a craft) and I added Eat in randomly. Because, you know, food. Deliciousness. So without further ado…
Something I Want
If you’re not familiar with The Grommet, it’s a really fun site that allows start up makers sell their goods. I love the necklaces pictured above from Annie Howes. You don’t actually buy a necklace, you but a kit to make your own. And the kit makes 6 pendants! This would be a great girls night craft. How fun is that? Totally unique handmade with a fool proof kit. I’m sold.
Something I Need
So, I dropped my cell phone and smashed it the other day which means I really need a new case for my new phone that is coming tomorrow! I know, technically, I should be bummed that I broke my phone and had to spend money to buy a new one. Of course, I am. But, I’m also secretly happy because the camera on my old phone was horrible. I’m getting a refurbished phone, the Sony Experia. I’ve had this phone before and the camera is excellent and that is what is most important to me in a cell phone. The second most important thing to me in a cell phone is the price and the one I’m getting from newegg.com was only $149. Maybe someday I will not think it is insane to spend many hundreds of dollars on a phone, but today is not that day.
Something to Wear
Something to Make
I really love these DIY Watercolor paintings from Burlap and Blue. I think these are just gorgeous and very diy-able, especially with the tutorial included on the blog. Click over and try these. Bonus, they cost about $2 per canvas!
Something to Eat
That’s a wrap for the week! Happy Easter on Sunday!
