Swoon-Worthy Site: Copy Cat Crafts

Prepare to swoon, my friends!  My good friend Dana recently introduced me to Copy Cat Crafts, which is the brilliant new blog by Wendy, a self-professed blogging and crafting addict.  Copy Cat Crafts features creative DIY projects from her readers, who recreate home decor and apparel from Anthropologie, West Elm, Pottery Barn, and Ballard Designs, to name but a few.  You know with a list like that, the Swoon girls would be all over it!

I submitted my DIY Pottery Barn typography prints, which I posted about last week, and to my great surprise and delight, Wendy featured them on her site yesterday!  I was thrilled and flattered, especially because of the super cute and ingenious ideas already on the Copy Cat Crafts site.  Who wouldn't love these Anthropologie-inspired lampshades?

Or what about this super chic abstract numbered wall canvas also inspired by Pottery Barn?

Or, OMG, this Marimekko-inspired wall mural made with ... wait for it ... SHARPIES.

That's just  a teeny tiny taste of the slew of swoon-worthy ideas on Copy Cat Crafts.  And Wendy has just gotten started, so there will be so much more eye-candy to come.  You can bet Copy Cat Crafts is now atop our "must read" list each day!

What about you? Got any favorite copy cats on the blog?  I'm really digging those Anthropologie-ish lamp shades and the Marimekko-inspired mural made with SHARPIES.  Gotta give the all-cap shout out to my most beloved marker.

See you swoon,
