When I hatched the idea to do roundups based on books and movies , I just thought it would be a fun way to find stuff online. I didn’t really comprehend that it would open a whole world of inspiration for all of us! I am SO excited to go through each and every suggestion and start some good old fashioned movie watching. That is, after I run to the corner store to pick up some more popcorn, of course.
The other week, my good friend Stephanie and I planned out a craft weekend. Our mission: Terrariums. Not the kind you keep lizards in, but the kind you can seal up and watch the moss grow. It was fun, cheap, and easy, and while we were creating them I realized how awesome they would be as centerpieces at a wedding. They are totally unique, creative, and beautiful. We each made four of them, which just goes to show they are not even that labor intensive.
We are constantly impressed by the creativity and resourcefulness of our readers. Latest exhibit? This homemade wall-mounted spice rack David created for his kitchen.
Inspired by West Elm's gorgeous Abaca pendant lamps Super talented Heika DeHart strikes again. These pendant lamps she made of hemp string are genius. Plus, don’t you love how they look with her wallpaper?
i love wax paper for packing lunches; i wrap sandwiches in a piece of wax paper and tie it like a present with a little cotton string. it’s so much better looking than a plastic bag. wax paper comes in handy for more things than i realized, like rolling it up to use for a funnel, or how about rubbing a piece of wax paper on the top of your shower curtain rod to cut down on that terrible screeching in the morning…problem solved. but who knew that if you iron layers of wax paper together it looks remarkably similar to a capiz shell? this discovery brought me to today’s project: the faux capiz chandelier. hung over your dining table, or outside at an outdoor dinner party, it is an easy solution to a dramatic light fixture and will look phenomenal in either setting. i hope you enjoy making your own as much i did! - brenna
2010 transitioning into 2011 was a little different compared to other New Years. It was like after having gifting me a year of happy beginnings, 2010 stood handing me over 2011 with the promise of more dreams to chase and accomplish. I do not remember feeling so positive at the turn of a year and I'm hoping to hold that feeling close to me through the year. It usually happens that one makes the best plans as the new year begins and then suddenly by March at the most, the new year is old and aspirations forgotten. Of the many aspirations that gush through the span of a day sometimes, I am keen on listening to that silent chap who pops in once in a while to say 'keep it simple, sweetheart'. I hope I am able to really listen to myself.
Hi friends! I am Destri from The Mother Huddle , pleased to meet you. I had wrote a little ditty with what we are all about, but it became entirely too long so instead I thought I would just let the about page introduce us. Really I have been waiting for what seems like ages to share this project with you, so shall we just get on with it?! I have a great little landing at the top of my stairs that has acted as my kids toy room for years now. The thing I dislike the most is that the only soft element in the room is the carpet, everything else is hard.
This impressive mural (along with a few others) were made by artist Kathryn Anderson with nothing more than pushpins and yarn. We'll show you how you can create your own, step by step and with tips from the artist. Kathryn Anderson of KAndeArt has made some great wall murals out of nothing more than string and push pins.
