Cut another with the cabling on the opposite side How to make Glittens (fingerless glove-mittens)
i don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me just want to have my bare feet in the sand, be watching the sun setting into the ocean, and breathing in the warm salty air of the beach...as i get older, more and more i find myself missing that place i used to go to almost every.single.day. as a teen. (my skin doesn't miss it. as a matter of fact, i now wish i listened more and DID put SPF on my face...hindsight is 20/20). my mom calls me from her walk on the beach almost every morning...*sigh*yeah, i get a little homesick around this time of the year. heck on my pinterest my "dreaming of summer" has the most pictures in it. ah yes. i miss my ocean. case in point. this bracelet, brought a flood of memories, not because i used to have one like it but because i can totally see me wearing it by the beach, not caring that it's gotten salty and wet, because i can totally make another one in like less than 5 minutes flat when i get home.
I love using mason jars for decorating and a seemingly endless supply of craft projects. But rainbow tinted mason jars, just like the vintage ones you can never find anymore? This one might be my favorite project with mason jars yet! Mason Jars Mod Podge in Gloss (buy it here) Food coloring Ramekins to mix colors Newspaper or paper bag
I teased some post a go asking what could I make with a pillowcase, ribbon and some lace? Here is the answer =] A pretty vintage top. I loved the flow this particular pillowcase had and since it was one of the last sets Ken had before we moved together, I didn’t think he’ll miss it hehe (it’s for a single bed and there is another one in case we need it) There are so many possibilities and well pillowcases are easy to find right? I really liked the green and mixed it up with some vintage lace I had hanging around, I used ribbon for the straps and even tho there is a lof of pillowcase dresses and t-shirts out there, I wanted to show my version because I made it so to be very loose-fitting and comfy. To make this top is super easy and you dont need a serger at all (even tho if you have an extra one you can always send it my way! Upcycle: Pillowcase to top tutorial
Growing up, I kept a daily journal. I always enjoyed looking back at previous entries to see what had changed over the course of a year. These days, I can’t seem to find the time to journal, but I do try to jot down a little note from each day on my perpetual calendar/journal. The idea is very simple — flip to the current date and at the end of the day, write down something that happened. Some days it is big things like “Annie took her first steps.”
Bird Nest Necklace | DIY Today's DIY is a bird nest necklace. It's simple to make and perfect for last minute gifts. Here's how to make it... First, take your wire and begin twisting it around three beads to form a small cluster. These will be the eggs in the nest.
This is a very simple project. For you need only two things: A package of non-toxic washable markers Food coloring For the markers, I went with Crayola brand, only because they are a name I'm familiar with, and I suspect if people had a problem with toxicity from their products it would be big news. It's not like a huge amount of anything from the marker itself is going to get into the food product, but it's better safe than sorry. I got food coloring from the dollar store--you can pay 5-6 bucks at a regular store but I think this will do. As near as I could tell comparing it to the stuff I bought from Albertson's, it's exactly identical. Food Coloring Markers
put it together and enjoy! now for the fun part!
