This is exactly what has happened with my entry way/porch area. I knew I wanted to put stripes on the wall but it was a matter of finally getting around to it. Once that was done and the porch was all cleared out I knew I had to make it something that was worth having. That’s when I ordered my desk and watched the space slowly turn into what I had envisioned. I had my cream and tan stripes, I had my white lacquered desk, now it was time for some color.

With all those windows in that space it was the perfect opportunity to add a fun hue! For the most part, I love calming colors in my space like soft muted blues, greens and gray and dare I say beige!

Crafts lessons: How to sew a fish net…Inadvertent Knotted jute Demijohn knockoff For example this little sea side jar. This picture was taken with my iPhone and I had taken several pictures from every possible angle because I wanted to come home and try to figure out how to make the netting around it.

I am sure the shop owner was wondering why I had the jar upside down, right side up and side ways… Long story short, I got out my jute and started playing with the netting as soon as I came home (not even having unpacked three days worth of dirty clothes). I still took it back to the docks on our next visit to the cottage and snapped a couple of photos… 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. over into the loop 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.

Today's project is one of those, "Ooooh, I have a great idea! " and "I am going to save so much money! " and "This will be SO easy! " projects.

First remember our guest bedroom? We attempted to use an IKEA Lack side table and decided it wasn't right for the space. After some additional thought, I changed my mind and decided to make it work {surprise surprise right?} But something was totally missing. I brainstormed a few options and landed on some sort of basket to hold a few cozy throws for our guests. They offer of softness and texture and something about them just makes me smile.

34 Things You Can Improve With A Sharpie. DIY Minimal Business Cards on the Go. The ever-clever Mikey Burton has come up with a fun idea that I just may try out. He was asked to participate in the “Designer Challenge” for the October issue of Computer Arts Projects and was tasked to put a new spin on traditional business cards.

So his idea was to pare down a card to the absolute essentials: name, website and possibly a stylized bear illustration, and print it in a unique way. What’s really neat about the cards that Burton made was the tool he used: a 3/4″ inspection stamp. Not exactly a paragon of style and modern design, but it works great for this purpose. Plus, it’s self-inking and it’s small enough to carry around in your pocket or on a keyring, so you can turn any scrap of paper into a minimal DIY business card. I was really intrigued by this so I did some research and found a few places that will make fairly affordable, custom inspection stamps, in case anyone is inclined to try this out: 1) Fivestar Rubber Stamp 2) Stamp-Connection (via Mikey Burton)
