First up is this simple kraft notebook that has been dressed up with triangle stencils. It would be super-easy to DIY this with a stamper made from a sponge or a potato. After all, I hate being the same as everyone else, and I love graphic patterns. I've actually been thinking about giving an old end table of mine a similar geometric treatment.
Next is a blog that I just recently learned about that I think will inspire a lot of you too. It's called J's Everyday Fashion. She takes fashion photos from runways, magazines, celebrities and catalogs, and recreates the look at a price most of us can afford. She doesn't copy the look exactly, but uses it as an inspiration to put outfits together to help the rest of us who can use a little styling help or hand-holding.

Yes, please! Now I just need solution for the devices that have infrared sensors, like my satellite receiver. I've heard about IR repeaters, which allow you to put your ugly electronics anywhere you want. I'll let my guys (AKA Mr. Technology and Tech Jr.) sort that out.
What great blogs, ideas or solutions have you come across lately?
