Cup-O-Joe: Hack a Vintage Book into a Custom Journal I love old books: their smell, their feel, their look. I love their secret history and all their nostalgia. I love to read the owner's name inscribed in a book that's a hundred years old and wonder about the person's life - how long ago were they born? how long did they live?

I desperately needed a day planner. With so much going on I can no longer keep it all straight in my head ’cuz something’s always falling through the cracks. So on my way home from the morning school drive today, I went to the office supply store to shop for one. Vintage Book Planner Tutorial
Adapted from Clare Youngs’s The Perfect Handmade Bag ($19.95; Cico), this cute carryall requires little more than a pair of small wooden spatulas and two tea towels ($15 each; motherlindas.com ). Cut six strips of fabric from one towel. Two, measuring 33⁄4"W x 141⁄4"L each, will serve as the decorative horizontal bands at the top of the tote and should incorporate the towel’s graphics (as shown, left). The other four, measuring 31⁄2"W x 8"L, will form tabs for the bag’s handles.
ReMarkable Home: File Folder Paper Organizer Tutorial I had wanted to buy one of those cute wood magazine wall racks that you see in catalogs like Ballard or PB. But they were too expensive and didn’t have enough pockets. Plus, I had no space for one on my walls. So, I designed this organizer out of file folders. I don’t have pictures to show you how it was put together but here is the finished product. I used double sided file folders so that I could fold down the edge with the tab where you label the folder.
A Fashionable Way to Roll Up Your Cords How do you keep your cords in order when you travel? If you’re like most, you probably toss them all in a bag, making for one big tangled mess. In the interest of spring cleaning and decluttering our lives , we decided to create our own spin on this clever cord roll recently spotted on Etsy. It’s a bit like sushi… for your cords! ;) If you’re not up for the DIY project, we definitely recommend ordering one from the Etsy shop before your next trip!
A friend of mine DIYed her own candles , made from the peels of Satsuma oranges, for a recent dinner party. I was so excited by this simple yet clever idea, I had to share the tutorial on HonestlyWTF. My only regret is not discovering this sooner when Satsumas were at their absolute peak in December. Hopefully, you’ll still be able to snatch up a few at your local grocery store or farmer’s market and impress your guests at your next dinner party! You’ll need: Satsuma oranges with stems attached olive or vegetable oil a serrated knife a spoon matches The stem side of the Satsuma will be the bottom and base of the candle.
I thought today I'd tackle the answer to the question I'm asked the most: "What material do you use to make your stamps?" This is my humongous stash of Staedtler's MasterCarve rubber carving blocks. Unfortunately this wonderful material has been discontinued for a few years and it doesn't look like it's making a comeback any time soon. I have enough to last me a decade I guess :-) There is a brand that is very similar and we used it during the stamp carving workshop I taught in Toronto last year, it's called MooCarve . The nice thing about it is that it has the same thickness as the MasterCarve blocks and is very easy to hold when stamping. I doesn't need to be mounted onto wood or acrylic if you don't want to.

Me! - Modular origami! The kusudama is a paper model that I usually created by connecting multiple units together. The individual pieces may be glued, sewed or connected with themselves. The complete kusudama may be decorated with tassels, beads, feathers and anything you can imagine. Kusudama originate from ancient Japanese culture, where they were used for incense like a talismans against evil. It's possible that they were originally the bunches of flowers and herbs. The word kusudama itself is a combination of two Japanese words kusuri, Medicine, and tama — Ball.

How to Cut Quill Pens from Feathers Quills, Cutting, Feathers, Pens This is a document written in flux. I'm still experimenting even as we speak (1 June 1999), and as I figure more things out, they will be reflected on this page.
