According to TheWeddingReport.com , 'Rustic Weddings' are the new trending wedding theme! It seems that brides-to-be are in love with the charm, vintage feel and simple elegance of barn yard venues and wildflower bouquets that embody this theme. Think natural elements mixed with a western vibe and bring that all together with fun DIY crafting sessions.
Apr 18 This post is by my friend Rebecca Wright who will now be doing a column on Oh Happy Day. She throws some of my favorite parties I’ve ever been to like: her bicycle wedding , her bus birthday party , and her film festival birthday party . I’m so happy to have her here.
I saw this newsprint manicure over on The Daily Nail and thought it was adorable (especially for bookworms and word lovers like myself). I did a little Google detective work to see how to recreate it, and was surprised at how easy it is! All of the tutorials I found called for vodka or other clear distilled spirits, but we were fresh out.
In an increasingly globalized world, it’s still sometimes shocking to see just how disparate our lives are compared with other human beings around the world. A book of photographs by Peter Menzel called "Hungry Planet: What the World Eats" ("©Peter Menzel www.menzelphoto.com . Ten Speed Press, published in 2005) makes a relevant point with great irony: at a time when hundreds of millions of people don't have enough to eat, hundreds of millions more are eating too much and are overweight or obese. In observing what six billion eat for dinner the authors note, "Today, more people are overweight than underweight." It is these cultural differences, emphasized and reinforced by the author, which exemplifies the lifestyles and dietary habits of people around the world.
Throughout last couple of years I’ve been collecting my personal favorite quotations from various inspirational people in my Evernote. As a result I got quite a long list of sayings which I personally consider to be one of the smartest, wittiest, daring and positive at the same time. Moscow, 2008. So, I thought why not to share them with you? Assuming I have a lot in common with my readers, you might enjoy them too.
I posted this tutorial a few years ago and it has become somewhat of a tradition to bring it back every year! One of our family Easter traditions is dying eggs with pieces of silk. I saw a cute lady show Martha how to do it a few years ago and I ran upstairs right then to steal a tie! It’s way cooler than those cups of neon liquid that end up all over your clothes, your furniture and your hands plus it gives you an excuse to rid a man’s closet of ugly ties. Here’s the run-down: You need 100% silk for this to work.
I got the idea to make these from the DIY wrap bracelets I made a little while ago. These headphones were all white before, and since I had the coloured string left over from the bracelet tutorial, I decided to try it! To start off, take the string and tie a knot with it around one of the wires. You can use one colour, or as many colours as you want.
I finally got the chance to put together a how-to guide for creating a wax seal out of a wooden dowel. This started out as an idea that even Derek was skeptical of. I have to admit that I get a lot of ideas that work in my head, but not so much in real life. However, once it was finished and actually worked, well, let’s just say we were both psyched that I was able to pull it off.
during my maternity leave, I asked a few of my favorite mamas and mamas-to-be to kindly step in with some fun guest posts to keep you company Hi everyone! My name is Casey, and you can find me regularly over at My Life as a Sugar Lander , where I post about days with my little boy, my shop, PAPER+TWINE , other crafts, and pretty things. I am so happy for Alyson and her new baby boy! What an exciting time. If you are anything like me, you have a steady (and ever growing) list of friends expecting.
I have been seeing a lot of bird nest jewelry around lately. They are beautiful and I love the trend so I thought I would try making my own. These turned out to be really easy to make and require just a few simple supplies.
