DIY ideas/inspiration

I've been finding so many projects on Pinterest (follow me here!) that I want to try! Pinterest is such a great place for new ideas and inspiration. Here are a few items that have been inspiring me to get crafty:

A wind chime made of antique keys, locks and crystals

Book page art... I think I would photocopy a page (rather than ruin a book) 
with a favorite passage, and watercolor a picture that represents the words.

A homemade pebble mat-- all materials found at the Dollar Tree!

Big leaf printing... gorgeous enough for me to make, easy enough for my preschoolers to try!
via here. 

What's been inspiring your creativity lately?

I just joined Pinterest, but I haven't used it yet. I'm sure if I find half of what you did, it'll be worth it

I'm loving these DIY projects... especially the leaf printing one!
So I'm curious... why is your blog called "A Red Envelope"?
