In grade school we use to call it Spring Break, but in adult school unfortunately there is no such thing. Thus the staycation was created.

How-Tuesday: Doily Dream Catcher | The Etsy Blog How-Tuesday: Doily Dream Catcher | The Etsy Blog When browsing flea markets or thrift stores, it’s the lovely little doilies that always call my name. I want to rescue these beauties — probably made with love by somebody’s grandma — but I tend to battle my textile-hoarding instinct, unsure of what that doily’s life would look like with me. Jill, a.k.a. ILoveLune, has dreamed up a How-Tuesday project to transform these second-hand findings into a modern dream catcher for the vintage heart. Hey everyone!
This instructable flows out of Rayeath's very helpful nook cover instructable with some (hopefully) helpful changes. How to convert a hardback book into a Kindle cover with a strap: What you will need: 1) A book you don't mind chopping up; this book must be at least 7.5" tall, 5" wide, and 1 cm thick (though a little thicker might be better) 2) Two sheets of craft felt which are larger than the books covers by approximately 2 inches on all sides 3) Hot glue gun & glue sticks 4) Up to 3' of 1/2" braided elastic 5) Stiff paperboard; Rayeath recommends a cereal box, I used the covers of an old composition notebook 6) Scissors 7) X-acto knife 8) Paperclip 9) Ruler 10) Sharpie DIY Kindle Cover DIY Kindle Cover

tutorial Since the busiest gift giving season will soon be upon us (whether we want to believe it or not) I decided to create a set that shows you how to combine different tools to make gift embellishments and a card idea. Keep in mind that the flower idea can be made with many colors and even be a useful way to use small scraps (you know I enjoy those projects). Flower The Martha Stewart Punch Around sets are a great way to add a decorative border to any project. But instead of showing you how that works (you can see that here) I decided to make something that uses them in a different way. tutorial

gift tag no. 3 - popsicle sticks

Here is a new gift tag/gift decor project for the series that I'm creating because of the holiday season. I didn't use any paper for this one. I'm trying to use what I have so this version is using a tiny part of my popsicle sticks stash. The design is fairly simple - one stick to use for a holiday message, another for "FROM" and the last one for the "TO" information. Materials:- 3 popsicle sticks- yarn (enough to make it around the gift about two-three times.- drill gift tag no. 3 - popsicle sticks

SEMI I don't buy leather new. I will buy vintage leather but I am a vegetarian and so I exercise self control even when there is something I REALLY want. I bought this sweater a few years ago because it had the exact cut as the leather jacket I was aching for but couldn't buy. I felt very sated. I have loved it dearly but it has lost it's shape and has been looking a little sad for quite awhile.
