December 17th, 2010 I love string lights and their endless possibilities . I wanted a little something special to drape over our headboard, and a row of glowing paper cubes turned out to be just the thing! First get a string of 20 lights (use LED lights if you are worried about this being a fire hazard) and 20 square pieces of paper (I used 8.5″ x 8.5″).
Try as I might, I cannot seem to grasp even the most basic of feminine beauty rituals. I’m constantly struggling to master rudimentary hair and makeup techniques, and my one-time foray into the “subtle” art of perfume left everyone in the room with burning nostrils. This DIY solid perfume locket from artisanal perfumer Mandy Aftel is something I can definitely stand behind, though. Mandy only uses pure and natural ingredients to create her perfumes, and this solid scent can be easily applied with no risk of over-dousing.
Putz houses , also called “ glitter houses ,” are little houses that make up a Christmas village. Popular from the 1920s on, they can be made from cardboard, card stock, and even old Christmas cards.

The Japanese art of paper folding is obviously geometrical in nature. Some origami masters have looked at constructing geometric figures such as regular polyhedra from paper. In the other direction, some people have begun using computers to help fold more traditional origami designs. This idea works best for tree-like structures, which can be formed by laying out the tree onto a paper square so that the vertices are well separated from each other, allowing room to fold up the remaining paper away from the tree.

I finally gave in and made marble magnets. Not surprisingly they are quite fun, smooshing the glue out to make a perfect little magnified image is very satisfying.

As far as the backyard garden at casa de radmegan goes, most of my vegetables have ceased production for the season. The pitchers on my carnivorous plants are browning. My sweet little alien-like conophytums and lithops were covered up last week to protect against too much rain.

I recently saw these Chalkboard Rocks from Pottery Barn that you can write on with chalk and thought…”I can make those!” So I did! I had been wanting to paint something with chalk board paint (which has been all the rage on the craft blogs the past several months) to try out a homemade chalk paint recipe I found while browsing Martha Stewart’s site a while back.

Let's keep things simple this week. When it comes to personal-care products, we are big believers in streamlining what you use—see " Eight Products You Think You Need But Don't " for a refresher—buying less in general, and getting creative. We have both always loved experimenting in our kitchens and our bathrooms, checking ingredients in products we love, isolating the main ones, and then trying them on their own.
