i love the summer friendship bracelet trend that i keep seeing in blog land, so i thought it would be fun to share with you another way to weave a friendship bracelet. one of the parents at work showed me this technique of using a circular cardboard loom and i love how quick it goes, you can easily finish a bracelet in one sitting. - cardboard - something small and circular (like a teacup or ramekin) - scissors, ruler, pen - embroidery thread in pretty colors , thin yarn, or ribbon trace a circle onto your cardboard, and use a ruler to draw 8 lines cut a small ways into each line, between 1/2 an inch to an inch and make a hole in the middle of the circle where all the lines intersect.
Some buddies came over last night and we made magazine baskets. My paper weaving phase is getting out of control. In the spirit of spontaneous DIY experimentation, we decided to create a new drink, whereupon we mixed peach vodka, raspberry lemonade, and Venetian Carnival Pinot Grigio (purchased for its exciting label). Not good; don't do it. Since we didn't drink much of the stuff, our baskets turned out pretty well.
I have seen various versions of Faux Rosewood Wreaths in just about every store and catalog for the upcoming season; most with a price tag running upwards of $40 or more. Some are crafted of paper and other of real wood shavings. Last year I made a few rolled flower gift toppers from recycled book pages and they remind me so much of the curled wood roses I thought they would make a good substitute.
It's spring, so that means for much of the country, it's spring showers! Reflect the season in your baby's room with one of these cute DIY cloud mobiles.

Twenty-five years after his Well-Tempered Chair , Ron Arad has used a similar process--in which the naturally sprung properties of tempered steel, bolted in tension, gives a natural yield or “softness”--to build a bike with wheels made of sprung steel. To account for the added flexibility in the materials, Arad’s sprung wheels of steel are in fact a little bit larger than the average bike wheel, says Marcus Hearst, director of the design department at Arad’s studio . But it’s this yield that gives the wheels a slight cushion and makes the wheels work in a practical way.
I would usually never end a sentence with a preposition. Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put! (Winston Churchill said that–I think we would’ve gotten along famously.) But this article is important, so I bit the bullet on the title for this one. Too many of my friends have spent more than they needed to spend on things for school.
When it comes to advertising, college students are some of the most sought-after customers. Yet most students fail to realize how that little strip of plastic they carry around every day can save them hundreds of dollars over the course of their college career.
