Whip Up Newsletter no.8 2011

I am super busy with deadlines this week and am afraid its going to cut into my weekend. Will try to fit in some making, doing, chatting time with kids – we will probably do some baking together, and go for a bike ride. Its going to be a bit of a crazy weekend – maybe I just won’t sleep :)

But I am super excited to reveal a bit more of a sneak peak of Whipup.net’s Action Pack for kids – fully tested and approved by kids! Launching soon (28 Feb – so get ready).

At Whipup this past week the goodness continues with guest bloggers: Laura Burch gave us some creative ways to cover stains on kids clothing, Wendi Gratz offered a super cute design for little goodie bags, Marisa rounded up some super cute and useful zakka inspired tutorials, Katie gave us a pattern to make a felt roving pot holder and Britt showed us a myriad of ways to refashion a sweater. And don’t forget last week we had Weeks Ringle’s large scale print quilt pattern, and Carrie’s most adorable knitted baby cowl. And I wrote a bit about self sufficiency with some recommended reading to go with!

More crafty goodness to keep you busy:
Wallet for carrying around your nintendo and other gadgets
Crochet Frylock from Aqua Teen Hunger Force – with pattern!
Kelley created this kid-size quilt for a charity made from 2-1/2 inch strips, muslin and fat quarters
Maya has a tutorial for her beautiful crochet rings necklace
Lynn offers another great chance for crafters to express their own style with this Screen printed pillow cover tutorial
Nat has a super nifty computer case tutorial – in French and English
The most amazing mini messenger bag – gotta get one of these!
And also part of Celebrate the boy is Holly’s magnetic superhero play set.

NEW: Whipup.net now has a Facebook page

So much to do – so little time.

Sounds like a jam-packed weekend! I remember those weeks/weekends when the kids were young and I had no chance to sleep ;)

Thanks for the round-up each week!
