One of my favorite crafts is hand stitching-- it's fun, addictive, expressive and relaxing :) Over the next few weeks, I'm going to share easy ways to make your own patterns for hand stitching along with some tips and ideas :) These are some samples of my past projects-- I like to draw patterns freehand and use my handwriting. However, sometimes I adapt clipart type images to make a more complicated pattern, like the sewing machine or I just stitch the outline of an image I love, like the Goonies " Hey You Guys " silhouette :) I use a Back Stitch for all my hand stitching because it's very versatile and I like the look but you can use any combination of stitches for your projects... there's lots of fun ones!

Who knew you could create such beautiful fortune cookies out of a simple piece of paper? Laurie’s DIY project this week is not only creative and fun, but also very inexpensive to make(less than 10 cents per a fortune cookie)
Contemporary art doesn't get much more fun than this! First created in 1998 with white balloons and then redone many times over, Half the Air in a Given Space is an interactive installation, by British artist Martin Creed , that's comprised of hundreds or thousands of balloons of the same color. As the name suggests, half a room's entire volume is filled with air-inflated balloons and then visitors are encouraged to walk through.
