Good public art stops you in your tracks, while the best public art also opens up a new thought channel in your head. Which, in terms of the evolution of the environmental ethos, may be what we all really need right now. Moss greens up public space Anna Garforth's green graffiti on display at London's Clissold Park, is called the Mossberger Project and is part of YCN , a two-week global art initiative - in Stockholm, Tallin, New York, Amsterdam, etc. as well as London. The moss, which Garforth uses for letters to display words, is just so much more friendly than spray paint as a way of leaving a semi-permanent message.

You should all know by now that we are all about stacking bracelets on our wrists. The more, the better. In fact . . . the most, the best!
I am so looking forward to slipping these sweet walnuts presents into the bottom of my girls' (and their cousins) stockings. To make some yourself: place walnuts on a cookie sheet and bake at 200 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes. Let them cool down slightly and pry open with a butter knife.
Inspiration: When I had seen this necklace by Tatty Devine, I instantly knew two things. 1: I needed this right away to feed my dinosaur obsession. 2: At $180 it costs far too much and so I planned on making one. My version: Not exactly the same, but I do quite like it.
March 1, 2012 by Lauren I saw a "trick" online and thought "Weird! I wonder if that really works!" So I tried it.
When I bought something at a store recently, the clerk handed me my purchase in a bag made from a newspaper. I liked it very much and had to make some more—thus today's DIY recycled newspaper project: gift bags made from the Wall Street Journal. You can vary the dimensions, of course, but here's what I used to create a bag that's 5" tall, 4.5" wide, and 3" deep. Stack two sheets of newspaper on top of each other. This will be a two-ply bag for extra sturdiness.
I wanted to share with you a project from one of my readers who shares with us how to make leaf skeletons. I LOVE this! I have several leafs in various forms displayed in my home and knew I needed to make some of her leaf skeletons to add to my decor. I love how a pattern of leaves can enhance the beauty in your home. So I asked Heather if she would mind sharing her project with you. You can find more great projects from Heather at her blog The Other White House .
When I was a kid my mom used red fingernail polish and painted the first initial of our last name to identify things we had, especially on stuff we took camping or our Tupperware and Corningware dishes. There was always a big red initial on the back, lest someone got confused that the Corningware dish with potato salad at the potluck or the cooler filled with beer at the picnic was OURS not theirs! She also used fingernail polish to identify keys.
Oh I am so excited about this project! Any DIY that takes less than 30 minutes is worth getting excited about, no? These flip flops are so easy, and so so comfortable.
You all know we love a good Anthropologie knockoff around here – so a couple of days ago when I was browsing online I came across this mirror. Oh I definitely need that. Hold the presses – did that say $498??? Huh. We can do better than that. :)
Elbow patches are one of my favorite trends this season! Last month, I shared how to hand print hearts on your jeans and we recieved many requests for a patch tutorial! I asked Amanda to show you how she would do it in this next feature....
UPDATE: For those following a link directly to this post, you can find pictures of the entire nursery HERE UPDATE: I recently found out the owner of the bed that inspired mine, check out her incredible site HERE When we began planning the nursery I really wanted a spot I could read with our kids and snuggle with them. Since I won’t be working as much, I have great hopes that maybe every once and a while I could cuddle down for a nap with one of them. So in working on the nursery, I began working on a ‘reading bed’ for us. Granted this will be a great bed for naps and for kids, but it is not designed to be an adult bed. I was inspired by this picture and then made it my own.

Since the new year has started I’ve been trying to think of ways to be more kind to my self. Especially when that nasty gremlins try to creep in and stump me. I remembered this origami star video on You Tube and had to get them involved in my plan. I thought it would be fun to make a whole bunch with kind words and “you are….” phrases inside. I made 60 of them, enough to last me the whole year if I open one a week, plus a few extra just in case.
