DIY | mason jar cookie mix favor » Something Turquoise I absolutely love Mason Jar Cookie Mix gifts, I love getting them and I love giving them. Normally, because of the size of most cookie recipes, mixes like this have to be gifted in large mason jars – which definitely wouldn’t work for bridal shower or wedding favors. So I worked really hard to develop the perfect cookie recipe that fits into these small, 12 ounce eco mason jars and I’m thrilled to share it with you today! Not only are these fabulous wedding event favors, but they make great gifts for the holidays as well.
Chain link bracelets, with colorful threads woven through them, have been popping up here and there. We adore Aurèlie Bidermann‘s Do Brazil bracelets and thought it was about time we graduate to the ultimate “grown-up” friendship bracelet.
1/22/12 Update: Many of you have been having trouble coming across sterling silver in your local thrift stores. One place you can always find it is on ebay, but you will be paying more for the silverware. You should be able to find a sterling silver fork or spoon for about $10-$15 on ebay, so if you are having no luck and are really wanting to make a ring, I’d suggest shopping there.4/2/12 Update: For a printable of the instructions and to see the updated photo tutorial, click here.12/10/12 Update: To see video snippets of the tutorial, click here
A Matching Game (A Tutorial and Download I’m starting to think about holiday gifts…and so I’ll be sharing a bunch of ideas for handmade holiday gifts over the next few weeks. I made this cute little matching game using wood craft disks and Citra Solv. It’s easy to make, inexpensive and the recipient will love the handmade quality!
I love image transfers. It’s something I’m always using in my journals but there are so many other fun uses for them. All you need to make a transfer is a photocopy of an image or words and packing tape.
Mini Book Photo Tutorial My advanced bookbinding class last spring took on the big project of coptic stitch books and so to reward them for all their hard work and patience as I worked out the kinks of teaching a group of people a very tricky stitch, I made everyone in the class these fun little accordion books! Here’s a step by step photo tutorial.
I’ve had some requests to do a tutorial on the coffee filter roses I made for my wedding. So here it is. Like I said they really are easy once you get the hang of them. A bit of practice and you’ll have beautiful roses in no time. The supply list is simple.

Immediately after removing the paper, place it in a pan, and pour water over it. Hang paper to dry, marbleized side up. Do not touch the paper until it is dry (typically within 2 hours, depending on humidity levels). Decide whether to keep or discard your solution (it can be used several times). To change paint colors, lay strips of newsprint across the solution's surface, then remove; repeat with clean strips until the solution is clear.
Jag ville göra något mer av de stenar jag plockade på semestern och då kom jag ihåg en pysselidé som jag sett på bloggen GardenMama, nämligen att använda gnuggisar (skrapmotiv/rub-on) på stenarna. Hur enkelt som helst. Gör så här: Klipp ut en gnuggis, gnugga fast den på stenen med en träpinne (t ex glasspinne) eller liknande och sedan är du klar. Pyntade småstenar – Decorated pebbles
I had a baby so I’ve invited some fave guests to take over for me while I spend time with the little guy. Today’s post is from super crafter and cute mom, Amelia of The Homebook. Growing up, I had an aunt who lived in Canada. Every year for my birthday she’d send me a card and a fancy little gift. She always found the neatest things! One year, when I was maybe 10 or 11, she sent me another card—and when I opened it up, a paper butterfly fluttered out of the card.
This tutorial is an old one of mine that’s too good not to share again. Since posting the first time, I’ve had lots of questions about these buttons which will hopefully be answered in this revised post. Equipment
As far as the backyard garden at casa de radmegan goes, most of my vegetables have ceased production for the season. The pitchers on my carnivorous plants are browning.
I have been trying to finish up all of my Holiday crafting, so I got behind on my scrap fabric projects last week. To make it up to all of you, here are a bunch of super cute scrap fabric projects I found on Pinterest! Above you will see a fabric scrap Memory game, found at Babble. This is a great wall art project using fabric scraps and embroidery hoops, from The Purl Bee. While this project just uses fabric swatches, you could certainly do some embroidery on your scraps to add even more visual interest. Here are some garden flags from Design Sponge.
I just finished a giveaway at Tatertots & Jello & Jen was kind enough to let me guest post on her super blog!
This morning one of the first things I did was take a load of laundry to the laundry room.
