Wouldn’t these DIY clay planters from Say Yes To Hoboken make for the cutest Mother’s Day gift? I’m not a mom (or much of a green thumb) but I’d gladly accept these. Not only are they practical and inexpensive, but they’re so chic that even Martha Stewart would be jealous. To add a little something extra, personalize them by stamping the year and your initials into the clay! Read the full tutorial here.

Whenever you go on road trips and there’s the one car that’s going the same place as you, do you ever feel like you sort of drove with them? Well, when I started Sugar & Cloth a few months ago, Esther of Wholly Kao was one of those people for me, but in the blogging world. Her blog was one of the first I read regularly, and it’s neat to see how each blossoms, not to mention she is exceptionally crafty, like this homemade coffee koozy.

Call me crazy but I’m about to say out loud that cross stitching is now cool, or well, J.D. at least makes it look that way. Wouldn’t you love to have one of these pieces? I need to start collecting my pennies for her Make It Rain cross-stitch. You can find all of her handmade work here, but be warned that you may be overcome with crafting jealousy.
