Cindy is taking the day off……I made her.

This is Kim from Today’s Creative Blog, her bestest online friend ever. Actually I’m hijacking her site today, hoping Cindy will sit back and relax for a few minutes. The woman is crazy talented and never stops thinking…….so Cindy……let me entertain you and your readers today.

Like I said……….I’m Kim from Today’s Creative Blog. I feature creative blogs…….almost daily.

You’ll have fun today visiting because today is Get Your Craft On. 100’s of creative links to keep you busy.

I met Cindy when I featured her about 3 years ago. I about fell out of my chair when I found this site. Seriously. Who woulda thought I’d be sharing a hotel room with her 3 years later? (bloggy boot camp).

I’m going to share a very quick tutorial I found from one of the many crafts that you will find on Get Your Craft On —- something perfect to get ready for Memorial Day and the Fourth of July!

Malia pulls out all of the stops over at Yesterday On Tuesday with this creative Patriotic Pennant Banner. What a great way to use up old jeans!


Malia has even found adorable vintage images for the project, Victorian Fourth of July One by Piddix, and shows you how to transfer them to fabric.


She walks you through the whole process with great photos!


From embellishing each pennant


to sewing it all together.


You’ll have the perfect decoration for Memorial Day and Fourth of July!


This was just one of the hundreds of creative tutorials you will find highlighted almost everyday on Today’s Creative Blog!

Thanks for letting me hijack your blog today Cindy. I hope you and Bella did something fun today. Can’t wait to see what you’ve made.

The rest of you, head over to Get Your Craft On for oodles of inspiration.
