I picked up the September 2009 issue of Marie Claire Idées at a newsstand in Paris (still can't believe that I can say that!). I have loved looking through this issue. The styling is beautiful and there are some really cute projects to try out.

I don't know if you're like me, but I have a great library of craft idea books that don't get used very often. Is anyone up for a "make-a-project-out-of-an-ignored-but-beautiful-idea-book" challenge? Off the top of my head, I've got a few great books in my stash with projects I'd like to make but have never gotten around to it. The project can be big or small, from a book or magazine, and made for you or as a gift. If you'd like to join, post in the comments and maybe we can report back in a bit with our progress.
edited: Let's plan on making this a challenge to start in January.
