Organizing. In our new house, I am anticipating having a crafting 'studio'.


It'll be more like a crafting area in our master bedroom, but studio sounds a lot more fancy! I've been making plans for storage solutions that are aesthetically pleasing yet frugal. I've also fallen in love with spray paint--remember this project? (Don't worry, I'm pregnant, so I only use the paint outside in between the tremendous April rainstorms.) We have a lot of empty yogurt containers around the house. I set the containers up on scraps of wood so that I could just do one application and sprayed them with the lids on. Dezember 2010.

Most people probably don't have a huge stack of beach Seaglass, if you are one of them don't let that stop you from making something awesome.

These sea glass mosaic creations are a mix of real and man tumbled sea glass, and in some cases it's hard to tell which is which. No matter what was used, all these mosaics have a very beachy vibe and look stunning! If you needed a privacy window, in a bathroom for example, a sea glass window like this would be gorgeous.

But you SHOULD make sure you don't spend too much on it. I made my friend Syrina take some snaps of trees today, 'cause I can't find my digicam. :( Her instructions were to take photos of branches against the sky, so that at least two sides of the frame were sky and two sides were filled with branches. I liked this one best. I re-sized it to 6x4.5, and made a new file in Photoshop that was 12x9. Today I Love: DIY Dreamcatchers.

Librarians, Please Avert Your Eyes

Assemble your cast of characters. I felt slightly guilty about purchasing an author’s work from the Dollar Tree for the sole purpose of ripping up. I read a few pages of Loving Charity just to make sure I wasn’t about to destroy a literary classic; let me assure you that I wasn’t. You could definitely use vintage books, magazines or sheet music for this project or even select a book off of your own bookshelf that you don’t think you’ll read again. 2. Lay the book on a clean paper towel for about 5 or 10 minutes to let the paint dry. 3. 4. You will do this layer all the way around the wreath. 5. 6. 7. To fill in your spaces, you’ll simply roll a page, apply glue to the ends, and just stick it in the wreath. 8.

How About Orange. Here's a quick and easy Halloween project: votive candle holders with packing tape transferred images.

How About Orange

You'll need clear packing tape and access to a laser printer to make these. First, select the image you'd like to apply to your candle holder. (Check here for scary vintage clip art, like this spider, bat, crow, skull, aardvark, or search the database for other illustrations.) With a laser printer, print your images out 2" high (or to fit within the size of the clear packing tape you have.) Quick Kitsch Makeover.

I purchased this funky plastic frame mounted-deer head on Etsy recently to go with my collection of deer decor.

Quick Kitsch Makeover

I’ve done makeovers to deer before on my blog, but seriously, can you ever get enough of “before & afters”? I love them! So here’s another one. I disassembled the pieces. Painted several coats of white gesso on the head and frame. I cut two ovals out to go over the back plate, one of vintage wallpaper from The Graphics Fairy, and another out of a water stained French catalog order form.
