I know, I seem to be on a background paper kick lately. I've been working on ATC cards for a swap so that's why I've been experimenting with them. I'll share my ATC's before I mail them off :) Wax Paper Resist
My name is Momma: How to make a reindeer hair bow for Christmas
Since the new year has started I’ve been trying to think of ways to be more kind to my self.
I've switched over to using acid free paper and glue to make my paper filigree snowflake ornaments now.
My friends, if there ever was a bandwagon, this carefree DIYer is jumping right on it. For months, I’ve seen fabulous versions of the sunburst mirror pop up all over the blogosphere. And for weeks now, with every stop in the paint department, I couldn’t help but notice how those paint stir sticks might just make a very cool version of this decorative favorite.
Have you ever done any glass etching?
I wanted to share with you a project from one of my readers who shares with us how to make leaf skeletons.
Here is my first step-by-step tutorial... and I made it an easy one. I made these blocks for my mom and mother-in-law for Christmas and they loved them, so I thought I'd share.

Get out the hammer, it's how-to Tuesday and we have some botanical prints to make!
i don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me just want to have my bare feet in the sand, be watching the sun setting into the ocean, and breathing in the warm salty air of the beach...as i get older, more and more i find myself missing that place i used to go to almost every.single.day. as a teen.
I first heard of seed paper–or hand made paper that has real flower seeds embedded in the pulp itself and is actually plantable–about a year ago while browsing through a stationary catalog.
Immediately after removing the paper, place it in a pan, and pour water over it. Hang paper to dry, marbleized side up. Do not touch the paper until it is dry (typically within 2 hours, depending on humidity levels). Decide whether to keep or discard your solution (it can be used several times). To change paint colors, lay strips of newsprint across the solution's surface, then remove; repeat with clean strips until the solution is clear.
