Freshly Picked: How to Make Origami Lights - StumbleUpon

Moment for Me What, you’re not up in the middle of the night, savoring the last of your peppermint bark ice cream, feeling like it’s officially the end of the holidays and the beginning of the long march to springtime? Sometimes you just need to take a minute for yourself….a delicious, delicious minute.
Creative and Crafty Organizing: Creative Ways to ReUse Old Pictures Blog: Creative and Crafty Organizing If you put pictures into scrapbooks, how often do you find that you don't use all the pictures? Inevitably, we end up tossing them or sticking them into a photo box to never been seen from again. I was reading a great article the other day that gave some great ideas of how to use those unused pictures, without having to toss them. With the holidays quickly approaching, it might be fun to make a few gifts with pictures... Creative and Crafty Organizing: Creative Ways to ReUse Old Pictures

Kodachrome Curtains - Updated! Now with lampy goodness! - HOME SWEET HOME

So, it's been a while since I've made anything Craftster-worthy, but my husband and I busted out the Dremel tool a few days ago and we made this: It's a pair of curtains made out of old Kodachrome slides! I'm really interested in photography, and will buy old cameras in antique and thrift stores in order to develop film that's inside of it. From time to time, I'll find collections of old slides and will buy those, too. Last fall, driving back from vacation, we stopped at an antique store outside of Kansas City and I found a box of a ton of old slides, mostly Kodachrome, from the 50s and 60s. I hate the idea that these pictures would just be resigned to the garbage or something, and wanted to display them (besides just scanning them in and putting them on Flickr - here's a link to my old found negative/slide collection, though, if you want to check that out: http://www.flickr.com/photos/yarnzombie/sets/72157607000475373/ ).

Song Lyric Wall Art A couple weeks ago, I found a paint-by-number at an unbeatable price. I can't pass these things up even though I already owned this particular design. I thought that I could maybe use it to make a fun D.I.Y., but my new rule is that all thrifts that I purchase with the intent of restyling need to get done right away. I have way too many half finished projects in my life. With that little bit of motivation I came up with a fun D.I.Y. to display some of my favorite song lyrcis in our newlywed home.

DIY {clothes pin magnets} DIY {clothes pin magnets} As a little gift to the girls that attended the dress making brunch (previous post), I made them each a set of clothes pin magnets. I found the idea on the Pin and Paper blog. I thought it was an appropriate gift for for the brunch for these reasons: 1. Clothes pins can be a reminder of the dresses we made, but more importantly the little girls they will be going to
My friends, if there ever was a bandwagon, this carefree DIYer is jumping right on it. For months, I’ve seen fabulous versions of the sunburst mirror pop up all over the blogosphere. And for weeks now, with every stop in the paint department, I couldn’t help but notice how those paint stir sticks might just make a very cool version of this decorative favorite. I couldn’t figure out how to stack them nicely enough around the center to make it worth my effort, but that little road bump didn’t stop me from snagging more than my fair share of free stir sticks at a time, like 8 or 10, over the course of a month. When I read how Danielle used an embroidery hoop, that convinced me to make my own version too! Paint Stick Sunburst Mirror
