Tutorial: Homemade Sidewalk Chalk

Tutorial: Homemade Sidewalk Chalk by Michelle Vackar, Modern Handmade Child One of our favorite outside activities at our home is drawing with chalk on the driveway. You can play hopscotch, four-square, and of course draw and create silly stories. My daughters and I were talking one day as we played hopscotch about how to make chalk and I thought to myself, let’s try it! It ended up being quite a lot of fun.

Well…another year has come and gone, and I feel as though I kept some of my resolution, kind of kept a few more and plain old broke a few other. But that has it is for many people, as long as you are trying, and changing you are succeeding in my book. Usually I hide little notes to remind me of those goals or little sayings I chant to myself every time I wake up or get in a situation. This year I have a lot of small resolutions like keeping my house, car, and kids tidy (yes, I have messy messy kids).
creative jewish mom: Crafts: Teacher Appreciation Gifts creative jewish mom: Crafts: Teacher Appreciation Gifts Introducing a cheerful fall apple craft just in time for Rosh HaShana! And of course, they'll look great in the Sukkah too, hanging or as a centerpiece. So gather your supplies, and have fun creating some new decorative accessories that keep well from year to year, though you may just love them so much they'll never get packed away. Anyone remember my crocheted doily bowl? I think it's the perfect container for these apples, and if you make them together you can do an even better job color wise than I have.

One of the things I did this weekend was dress up these lamps I got at an antique store. Check out their new outfits! The lamps didn't come with shades, so I don't know what the original shape would have been. I searched high and low at Target, HomeGoods, and any stores I could think of that sell new shades, but couldn't find a size that wouldn't look silly on these slender bases. So I Googled online places that will make custom-sized shades, and finally selected Fenchel Shades. How About Orange

So yesterday, as I was browsing through countless gifts for men on Etsy, I came across so many incredibly adorable iPhone holders that I couldn't decide which ones I liked best! They didn't all necessarily fit into the men's category so I'm dedicating this post to the super creative, cute, meticulous, and simply amazing iPhone/smartphone holders I've found. Any of these would be the stocking stuffer of your teenager/fun-at-heart's dreams. Caution - Side effects may include the experience of receiving glowing respect and admiration in the gift receiver's eyes. Here are a few of my favorites. iPhone/Smartphone Holders Galore iPhone/Smartphone Holders Galore

Polly Wiggins, a quilling friend in Kansas, encrusted this paper mache heart with beautiful folded roses and fringed flowers. I'm drawn to the subtle, old fashioned shades she chose, perhaps because they remind me of a silky-soft comforter my great grandmother made years and years ago. If you've been steering clear of folded roses because they seem too complicated, fear not. Folded Rose Tutorial
Hammered spoons are a beautiful addition to your wedding tabletop. Perfect for an elegant, rustic wedding, use them as favors, escort cards, or table numbers – the options are endless. I’m so happy to have McKenzie Brickl of La La Soiree and Kate Sommers of KNG Sommers Photography stop by EAD today to share a step-by-step tutorial for creating your own hammered spoon place cards, and you can see them in action on a lovely olive green and gold tabletop they created! Scour local thrift stores, flea markets or yard sales for spoons and make sure that they are not stainless steel – look at the handle – which appears too shiny and is very difficult to pound out. Select pieces that are made of silver (you can tell because it does tarnish). You will need: Hammered Spoon Tutorial
