Freckled Nest Archives: HOME EC [Full Details & Registration] • • • • • • • • • • • • Visit HomeEcOnline.com for registration!Home Ec is not just for teenagers anymore, it's for everyone, everywhere!! Leigh-Ann , Rachel , and Courtney built this Sewing eCourse for beginners and those who want to develop and polish their sewing skills! We created 3 Guides, 28 step-by-step Projects with at least one new Sewing Technique in each, and a tips post on How to Invent & Adapt projects of your own! This class is different than others we've taught. The projects are each amazing and useful, but the real purpose of each project is so that you can learn a specific sewing skill, one step at a time, practicing and learning along the way. We also want to show you previews & describe to you EACH project so that you can see what you learn and how much skill you'll obtain by the end of Home Ec.
I can't believe I've never tried this project before. It was so easy and fun that I ended up doing it three times this week... first with my own kids, then as a project at my son's school, and then with our music class. I have a little bit of PTSD after working with lots and lots of squirrelly little 4 and 5 year olds. In particular my own kids, who tend to just dump out all the paint, smear it all over their bodies, and then run away screaming. They can engage with art projects sometimes, but it's a delicate trick... figuring out what will draw them in.

Written by chanie on March 6th, 2012 I just love mustache crafts, and since Purim is all about disguising ourselves, I thought it would be fun to prepare mustache straws for the Purim Seudah. You can also use the mustaches as place cards, glue them to napkin rings, or attach them to Popsicle sticks. If you love these, check out this adorable mustache coffee cup cozy !
A few weeks ago I saw this idea for water blobs floating around online and decided to try it ourselves the next time we were having friends over to play. Can I just say that this “water blob” was amazing amounts of fun. I layed on it, the kids jumped on it, slid across it and spent the entire day doing all sorts of crazy acrobatics. We loved it so much that I almost can’t wait to do another one. And the next one will have glitter in it… tons of glitter. So what is a “water blob” and how do you make one?
Warning ahead of time... it gets a bit.. um.. collegey in this post. For this Halloween my friends and I decided to go a bigger then just a simple Halloween party. We decided, why not do a Harry Potter Party, and man was it a success. We had apple cider, butter beer, trivia, movies, expelliarmis shots, and of course... Quidditch Pong. What's Quidditch Pong Louis?

We recently created this fabric pom pom as a tree topper for an inspiration shoot over at Design*Sponge , but it’s a great DIY project for a wedding as well. They have so many creative uses… hung above tables, chair aisle decor, or an alternative to the expensive flower poms that flower girls use to walk down the aisle. -Ashley of Dolci Odille Supplies: Fabric, scissors, hot glue gun, and chinese lanterns. Step 1: Cut circles out of fabric.
The old becomes new: A new variation on the outdoor lantern. We have had an unusually warm winter in Michigan this year, and while the temps have been nice, I have had to hold off on this project idea until we got a cold snap. We finally got some snow and cold earlier this week, so I was able to try out this fun winter project.
One of the best things about this time of year is cuddling up next to the fire with a good book or a great movie. Warm as toast on a cold winter's night. But what do you do when it's time for the long ol' trek up to bedfordshire? Racing up the stairs, wriggling out of your clothes and flinging them onto the floor as you dive into ice cold sheets, teeth chattering away as you go!
For my dad's 60th birthday last week, I wanted to do something really fun. My dad and I talk a lot about the past---nostalgia runs in our blood, I think---and we both love to reminisce. Inspired by Jordan Ferney's Postcard Birthday Poster, I started batting around an idea: what if I could get everyone from my dad's past to contribute a memory they had of him? What if I had all those people send their memories to me, and then I put each one into an envelope---sixty total, of course---and had him open them, one by one, on his birthday? That would be a lot of memories, right? So I wrote an email.
08.09.09 | by Erik Anderson Whether it’s product branding, package design or projects for ourselves, we’re pleased when we find a solution that’s very effective and creative, while keeping resources to a minimum. This idea is very inexpensive (Buy Kit Now $38).
One of my favorite elements for interior design costs less than two dollars at your local grocery store. That’s right, Mason Jars. Now, you can find some antique mason jars that cost more & some in different styles, but for this DIY project I used four simple wide mouth Mason Jars.
