This 624-square-foot bungalow utilizes quite an innovative construction process: it's put together with sand-filled plastic bottles, each one capped and weighing about two pounds. This project is a partnership between the NGO Development Association for Renewable Energies (DARE) and foreign experts from Africa Community Trust, a London-based NGO. Filled plastic bottles of sand are stacked into layers and bonded together by mud and cement, and held together by a network of strings to provide extra support to the structure. The structure is fire proof, bullet proof, earthquake resistant, and highly insulated. The builders claim the sand-filled bottles are stronger than ordinary cinder blocks.
Voici comment lui donner un air ensoleillé en invitant la couleur ! Des idées de récup’ ou de détournement, réalisées en un tour de main avec trois francs six sous et la déco prend ses quartiers d’été. D’un coup de peinture, une kyrielle de cuillères en bois ou en plastique assez plates change de tête et se transforme en un drôle de cadre. Installé tout autour d’une simple glace à l’aide d’une colle spécial verre, vous voilà désormais en présence d’un surprenant miroir “de sorcière”. Pour encore plus de fantaisie, n’hésitez pas à peindre les cuillères de différentes couleurs !
I will admit it. I am ridiculously excited to share my latest project! It turned out just like the picture in my head--and that does NOT always happen! I started out with this: It was a very beat-up garage sale table, but I loved it the moment I set eyes on it. All the chains, screwdrivers, and hammers in the world can't recreate that perfectly "naturally distressed" look like this table had!
Are you interested in making this wreath? Yeah! I'm flattered that you like my idea! Follow the step by step tutorial below.

Did you say you don’t have snow and want to do some dyeing? Well, before I put up my dyeing stuff, I thought I’d try one more type of dyeing – ice dyeing. For those of us who don’t have snow or would like to try this in the summer, this is an alternative. Please read my getting started and my fabric dye precautions posts before attempting this or any fabric reactive dye project. Since Judi had suggested I set my fabric up out of the dye, I tried that this time. I set a metal rack on top of cat food cans which I put into my dyeing container.
A friend of mine went to New York and brought me as a present a coin purse by Nahui Ollin. I had already seen them online but i never had one of these in hand. These bags are made of candy wrappers folded and framed together. They form a line of paper then sewn together to form a thick fabric.

The Paracord Germ Grenade is a hand sanitizer bottle wrapped with paracord (parachute cord), which was recently featured on my paracord design blog . Once tied it can be hung upside down using a carabiner or by using a tie made with paracord or other means. I keep one in my vehicle hanging from the rearview mirror so that anytime I leave a store, it is close at hand.
Fabric stamping one of my favorite ways to create a fabric with a special touch. For a crafty minds it’s a really good fun! Its easy, quick and effective. For a fabric stamping you can use different materials for example most accessible and probably everybody have it at home is a potato, very good for creating organic style pattens, an eraser, a tree twigs, a foil,a pencils basically what ever comes to your mind you can use as a stamp. In this tutorial I want to show how to make a stamp out of linoleum or lino what most people call this material.

Luckily for me the cause of thine itch was not the abundantly growing and epidermally irritating brush with poison oak (the likes of which sprout every four inches on any trail you take in these woods… leaves of three let them be, but more on that later, you see.). No, I had a deeper and more exhaustive itch. Thus one would then question the next probable action of checking for ticks in my loins.
I've been doing a lot of work with paracord recently and came up with this tidy way of keeping it organised. It keeps it tidy and untangled and is really easy to unravel when needed. I would usually do it with about a meter of loose end from the main bundle but for demonstration purposes ive used red as it is more contrasting. Ive decided to call this technique "Bight Whipping" due to its similarity with other rope whipping i've seen around.

The first ever art project that I can remember was spatter painting leaves on the sidewalk. I was probably about four or five. A very nice handyman, who I must have been harassing mercilessly, set me up with a piece of screen, a toothbrush, and some paint- he showed me how to make leaf pictures. It made a big impression on me, as the paintings actually looked exactly like the leaves- not my usual semi-abstract dogs and horses- I was delighted. This is a simple instructable- but you could make it any size/color/colors you like.
