I hope you didn't mind the wait and are not disappointed - but I finally got my act together. So, here's a new tutorial for a very easy to assemble drawstring coin purse. As a matter of fact this is so easy it would make a nice little craft for kids too. Just have them use felt instead of leather, or why not oil cloth.
When I was in Thailand, I would see the local people weave palm leaves into beautiful bowls, fans, balls and other amazing things. I asked my aunt if she knew how to make these things and she gave me a book that was all in Thai. I don't know how to read Thai, I can barely speak it. Somehow after a week of fumbling around with strips of paper, I managed to decode the pictures and figure it out.
Here's a quick and easy origami project: a business card case or gift card holder. Use patterned gift wrap (I like heavier-weight wrapping paper for a sturdier case), graph paper, a paper bag, magazine pages, or origami paper. Decorate the case with washi tape or stamps for a cute way to present gift cards. It will look like you put a lot of thought and effort into a gift that was probably the easiest thing you could buy.
Du skal bruge noget papir i A4 format, en saks, en lyskæde med små dioder og lidt fingersnilde. Det sidste er ikke en absolut nødvendighed, da jeg har fundet ud af, at de virker fint selvom hver en fold ikke er knivskarp og præcis. Det vigtigste er faktisk bare at man hele tiden forsøger nogenlunde at ramme midten, når man folder. Og at der ikke er nogle papirflader der lapper indover hinanden, så ballonen ikke kan folde sig ud. At de ikke er 100 procent ens og perfekte er bare en del af charmen.
I've seen photos created using a DIY camera trick and couldn't resist testing it myself. Bokeh is the term for the out-of-focus areas in a photo, particularly those little highlights created when photographing small points of light. Usually those highlights are circles or polygons, but it's lots of fun to make your own shapes. You'll need a DSLR camera and a lens with a large aperture. I'm definitely no photography expert, so refer to this good article for info about lenses and settings for taking shots with bokeh. I used my Canon Digital Rebel XSi with a Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens (this is my only extra lens; it's relatively cheap, lens-wise, and I love it).

If you’re the type that loves to make gifts for others, then say goodbye to cookies in a jar (or not, but you could give these as well!). This is a super easy, cheap and fun craft that will make a good gift to yourself or someone else! Glue the wooden button to the pencil using wood glue or a multi-purpose glue. Once you’ve glued them, allow the glue to set. In the picture below I placed them into a jar of matches, but something like a jar of rice will work even better.
Good morning! You are probably just waking up, while I was shooting bakers twine since 7 a.m.:-) Since it’s so pretty and warm outside (garden party time!), I thought I would make some drink charms.
We are absolute suckers for fine stationery in the Ulmer family. You would be mildly disturbed to take a peek into my stationary drawers. Because I totally have one of those. Seriously. Hey, in our childhood home, our mother had four cabinets stacked to the brim with stationery, so it’s in our blood.
Sunny turns two next week (that’s a whole 2! fingers), so I am in full on birthday planning mode. I thought I’d share one of the projects I’m doing for her party, and I’ll do a full coverage post of the main event two weekends from now. The theme is monkeys because well, they’re adorable and Sunny has a beloved stuffed animal monkey, ever-so-creatively named MONKEY.
Welp, it’s officially summer. With the humidity and burning sun, I feel more than secure making such a pronouncement. The rising temperatures have got me contemplating the future months of third trimester pregnancy and the clothing I’ll be wearing to get me through with as much comfort and coolness as possible in such a state, during such a time of year. Thus, my wardrobe will primarily consist of cotton maxi dresses, and white t-shirts paired with leggings. Classy, I know.
We have decided that everyone needs a pouf from Mary Marie Knits . What is a pouf? It’s a colorful, spherical pillow with a chunky, hand knit cover. Cara, the genius behind Mary Marie Knits, uses a ribbed stitch which gives her poufs their signature “sea urchin” appearance. Each pouf is hand knit in a color of your choosing (or in a 2-color stripe !) and a pouf can either be stuffed with a soft fiber fill, which makes it a little bit floppy and squeezable like a regular pillow, or the pouf can be filled with a sturdier foam roll, if you would like to use yours as a footstool or low seating.
On chilly days, slip kids' hands into mittens you've decorated to look like ferocious beasts. Try a pair of fire-breathing dragons for maximum toastiness. If it's bitingly cold, however, our shark works best. Lion mittens are especially good when the wind roars. To create them, simply sew features cut from felt to fleece mittens. Buttons and embroidery will complete the face.
This amazing press kit just arrived in my mailbox and I can’t stop thinking of the things that one could do with a product like ixxi ! This hasn’t been blogged anywhere yet so I’m so proud to give everyone a first peek at this amazing new product. I have to thank my friend Yvonne for sending it to me, she has been working on this ixxi project for awhile now and it’s finally been released and I love it.
