Turning a House into a Home {creating beauty on a budget}: Crafty with Corks

We have saved them up over the years and she has come up with many interesting things to do with them. I decided I wanted to give it a shot to see if I could also be as crafty with corks. I recently saw you could purchase a kit to make trivets out of wine corks. This seemed a little ridiculous to me, especially when I saw the price of said kit. I figured I may as well give it a shot and trying making a cork trivet using only the supplies we had on hand...making it essentially free.

To start, I played around with the placing of the corks until I found a design that I thought looked nice. I then glued a couple corks at a time to each other and clamped the corks while the glue dried. *WARNING* Only use a small amount of Gorilla Glue! Have you ever used Gorilla Glue? The glue worked quite well with the corks, however, and they were extremely secure.

Best adhesive to attach used wine corks to wood and/or plastic? Geek Builds Real-Life Functioning Wall-E Robot. Mike Senna, a computer programmer from Orange County, California, has spent the last two and a half years building a real-life Wall-E robot, from scratch.

It moves around, rolls and talks, but he doesn’t collect trash. In 2009, shortly after the movie Wall-E was launched, we featured some photos of cool Wall-E computer case mod, but that feat simply pales in comparison to Mike Senna’s awesome achievement. The robot aficionado spend between 3,200 and 3,800 man hours building his very own version of the adorable Pixar trash-collecting hero. His computer programming skills definitely came in handy, but seeing as there were no Wall-E parts available anywhere on this planet, he had to construct the whole thing from scratch. He worked on it about 25 hours a week, after his day job, but all the hard work certainly paid off. This isn’t Mike Senna’s first robot, either. "I Draw Pictures All Day".

Blogging allows you to play out your idea in public and engage your audience, followers, or potential customers in the process. It's ideal for 'thought leaders' who have something interesting to say about their field and of course it's superb for writers. And I believe every website should include a blog even if it's only an occasionally updated "News and articles" page. That's why I recommend most clients to build their whole website in WordPress from the beginning. But blogging takes time - quite a lot of it to do well. A cardboard arcade made by a 9-year old boy. Decorate Your Cake Cakes and Sugarcraft Norwich Aylsham. Creative Kickstart: 5 Ways to Creatively Organize Your Time, Mind, and Workspace.

It's been a few weeks since the last post in the Creative Kickstart series, but it's back in action, and here to help inspire you and motivate your creative process with the best installment yet! Through conversations with creative friends and associates, I've noticed a common "issue" we all seem to share: disorganization. As artistic people, we have constant ideas firing off in our brains, and when we're in the mood to create, we will passionately throw ourselves into a project.

And the last thing I feel like doing after hours of immersing myself in a creative job is devoting energy to organizing my workspace. Creativity for Life.
