Feature Friday #1

I thought I would start a new weekly item on my blog, "Feature Fridays." You, dear readers, can submit some of your most favorite projects to me. If you are chosen, I will feature a few of you on Friday. Just click on the link above, "Be Featured on Saved by Suzy," if you are interested in submitting something. I'm so thrilled to be able to showcase some of the marvelous talent and creativity out there in Blogland.

Here we go with our first Feature Friday. I'm so excited! Up first is the sweet Rhiannon from My Handcrafted Home. She made the cutest little toybox/bench from this black box.

Here's the final product:
So cute for storing all of her little kiddo's little doodads. I love Rhiannon because she says that all of her projects are easy and thus, simple for us followers to recreate. Love that! Go on over and give her a visit here.

I just discovered the blog Crazy Wonderful and I am so glad that I found it! Shelley features all kinds of lovely projects with great tutorials.

I have been coveting a sunburst mirror to hang over my bed when I happened upon her sunburst mirror.

How pretty is that baby! Guess what she's made out of? Wood shims! Shelley provides great instructions on how to put her together starting with only a mirror, shims, glue, and paint. Here's a look at the Before and After:
Can you believe this mirror only cost $26.00?!?!? It looks like it was several hundred dollars in my opinion.

Go visit Crazy Wonderful right now! You won't be sorry.

See you later! I'm running off to the store to pick up a pile of wood shims and a mirror. Have a great weekend.

Remember to contact me at if you would like to be featured on my blog.
