If you're looking for a super simple yet personal DIY Christmas card this year, I've got the perfect idea for you! The best part is that these cards can be customized however you like... from the graphic image to the words of your choice. You can use a family holiday photo, a joyous pic of your pet, or you can get abstract with it and do something like the first photo!
with all the endless emails, texts, tweets, and “pokes” flying around these days, we’ve found our appreciation for simple handmade cards growing stronger. we always keep a stock of blank stationery on hand so we can quickly whip up personalized little notes to send off to friends and family. mother’s day is the perfect excuse to send a handmade hello to the one person in your life who will appreciate it most. you can make and send a single special card, or create a whole matching set that she can use as a line of personalized stationery.

Your wedding day will be filled with generous gestures by family and friends, and a handmade thank-you note is a especially gracious way to express your appreciation. Use a monogram or single-initial stamp to make the image with embossing ink (it is available clear or tinted; we used pink). Apply embossing powder while the ink is wet, and pour off the excess. Set the ink with a heating tool specially designed for that purpose, or use a hair dryer, held at a 45-degree angle 2 inches above the paper. As the embossing powder melts, it becomes shiny and reflective, giving the cards a sparkle. Return to Using Rubber Stamps

But wrapping these gifts in commercial paper didn't seem to make much sense, so I wanted to create some handmade gift wrap to match. I happen to think a gift wrapped in newsprint is actually quite attractive, and love the look of text on a package, but wanted to put in a little more effort.
Like most of you, I’m sure, I tend to go through a lot of paint chips when trying to decide on a color to paint a room. And when the project is done, I toss the paint chips into a box I keep in my craft room.
One of my favorite crafts is hand stitching-- it's fun, addictive, expressive and relaxing :) Over the next few weeks, I'm going to share easy ways to make your own patterns for hand stitching along with some tips and ideas :)
This extended weekend has been so laid back for me. I managed to do just about no homework over the break, which I suspect I shall be regretting about this time tomorrow. ;) lol. I do need to get working on a speech that I've got to give on Wednesday, but at least its already outlined!
