it’s a cinch-spiration

See what I did there?  We all love a little inspiration … and what do you get when you’re looking for inspiration for easy peasy projects – It’s a Cinch-spiration.  ๐Ÿ™‚
I mean, we now have pin-spiration.  So why not cinch-spiration?


I tried.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Aaaanyway, I’ve found some other great ideas for simple little projects from a couple of my favorite blogs.

Let’s start with Kelly from View Along the Way.
If you haven’t seen Kelly’s blog I say Go. There. Now.  Even if you’re only looking for a chuckle…this girl is seriously funny!  And crafty.

Not only has she found a free solution to hanging pictures in a grid even with different lengths of hanging wire.  Confused?  I kind of am too and I wrote it…so you’re going to have to go here to see how Kelly got all of these pics lined up.
And, not only does she have a wicked cool, wrap around plate wall, but she has a great little (FREE!) tip for hanging them here.
AND, (because you know I love to start a sentence with the word and) for all of you with ugly books, Kelly can relate…and offers up an easy peasy solution here.   And she decorates with coral.  Smile!
Now, after you’ve checked out all of Kelly’s It’s a Cinch type projects be sure to come back here to learn about Kim from Sand and Sisal.  Seriously, doesn’t that blog name just say it all?!?
And she has wine corks in her header!  I’m on my way for a glass right now Kim.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Kim has made a few of her own It’s a Cinch projects. Just this week she did an awesome lampshade upgrade using … wait for it … SISAL! How apropos.  See how she did it here.
Isn’t it gorgeous?  And how cool would it look on a table with these fun upgraded balls for spring?
Learn how she turned plain foam balls into these beauties easy peasy like here.

And while you’re at it be sure to tell these great bloggers you were there…set aside some time though, I’m sure you’re going to want to stay awhile at both Sand and Sisal and View Along the Way.

Update:  You can learn about the entire MISSION: Possible link party series here and find more It’s a Cinch project ideas here.

And then get your It’s a Cinch on … and grab a button … and all that jazz.

And now I’m picturing myself on stage with jazz hands.
