Well, I've had my go at using paint chips recently for a baby shower decoration / gift for a friend. And I've since seen some amazing examples of creativity using paint chip cards. I'm sharing my favorites below, and you too can find inspiration with over 80 projects and pieces of art on this paint chip Pinterest board . Since the projects / works of art are so fabulous, I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
It's time for another installment of 'My Favorite Things' . This time I've scoured the net and found 25 of the best repurposed magazine projects . These repurposed craft and DIY ideas range from easy to advanced, some come with tutorials, and others you get to figure out for yourself (or even buy in the case of a few).
Have you jumped on the wooden pallet trend train? I haven't made any projects myself yet...but I did rescue one pallet from certain landfill death - and it's pink! It sits and waits patiently in our garage.
This is such a TERRIBLE idea. Saw this and tried it. The chocolate needed to be melted, and the heat of it popped the balloons, made SUCH A MESS. A few stubborn attempts later, we had 2 chocolate balloons that hadn't popped. After cooling, we attempted to pop the balloons out of the chocolate cups and they stuck to the inside leaving balloon bits stuck to the chocolate. We ended up throwing it all away.
By Tiffany Davis Reading a book is fun, but when you forget it at home, are bored at work, looking to get ahead on your reading for your online bachelor degree class, or are just curious to get a sneak peek at whatever you ordered from Amazon, online book sites can be handy too.

This little ringlet scarf made out of old t-shirts is so fun for fall! There’s no sewing involved (hallelujah!), and you can make it while sitting in front of the TV in less time than it takes to watch a really good, trashy show on E. Since I have an abundance of orange and blue Auburn shirts (and we go to a lot of the crisp, fall football games) I decided to go with Auburn colors. This scarf goes together so fast and is basically free to make – it’s perfect to wear in support of your favorite team!
Pssst – do we have cheap & easy wall art for you today! (But your secret is safe with us.)
Eggs, yogurt and honey are, at first glance, all components of a tasty breakfast — but they also happen to be hair treatment ingredients, and affordable, all-natural ones at that. And they're not the only ones. Did you know, for instance, that the oils in avocados more closely resemble our own skin's oils than any product in the beauty aisle does? Or that the mild acidity in lemon is an effective — and gentler — alternative to chemical-laden products? Next time your locks need a lift, save money by using one of these kitchen fixes. For all hair types
Roasted potatoes are pretty much my life. I’ve been told that I make one mean batch of roasted potatoes, and so I feel like it’s my civic duty to share the recipe with you today. There really isn’t anything that crazy that goes into these potatoes but I guess they are pretty much like crack.
Posted by Angela @ Making Food for Friends in dinner , soup . Tags: Bayless , quesadilla , Rebar , tortilla soup trackback I’ve used Bloglines for years and years. Bloglines is (or was) an RSS feed aggregator–it gathers subscriptions all of my favorite blogs in one place so I can quickly see what’s been updated and read all of the blogs from one location. With the news that Bloglines is shutting down come November 1, I realized I had to spend some time going through all of the recipes that I had saved in Bloglines over the years.
Jessica of Wednesday Inc shows us how to make those gorgeous twine chandeliers from the inspiration shoot she shared with us this morning. Using balloons, glue and twine, you can also make these lanterns for your wedding – and then bring it home and use it as your very own mid century lampshade. What you will need are: balloons, glue, yarn, tray for glue, corn starch 1/2 cup of Corn starch, 1/4 cup of Warm water, clear fast drying spray paint, hanging lamp cord or fishing line (depending on your desired final product), and a lighting kit if you’re looking for a fully functional lantern. Jessica recommends using a sharpie to mark on the inflated balloon how much room you need to leave for the lighting cord. She also recommends coating the balloon with vaseline prior to wrapping the yarn coated with glue so it doesn’t stick on the balloon once it’s dry.
