My husband and I both have cell phones. And both of us have phone chargers. And that means lots of obnoxious cords. You never know when one of us may be moving phone cords around, to give our phones an extra charge while we’re chatting away……… or trying to charge our phones up before running errands or something. Needless to say, those phone cords seem to be everywhere…..and are generally in the way and hanging all over the floor. (Okay, and how about when you’re in a hotel or visiting family/friends.
Have you ever made play dough and it just fell apart?? Well… not this time. This recipe will make play dough that is seriously the closest thing to store-bought you’ll ever make. No falling apart or drying out (as long as stored in a sealed container). It will last up to 6 months. The secret to this recipe??
I have to say, I have the cutest nieces and nephews! My own kids are getting older–thank goodness my sisters keep me in babies. I got to borrow some photos from my sister for this project, I made the puzzles for my three year old niece. These are her pesky twin brothers: She has had a blast playing with the puzzles, and matching up the colors on the back of the pieces. Here is what you will need to make your own puzzles:
Melted crayon canvases are popping up all over the place. This beautiful one from JK Create is the first one I remember seeing pinned on Pinterest . You should check out all of the amazing pieces she sells on Etsy. So it got me thinking about what other ways you could use melted crayons for art projects, since you wouldn't need the help of a blow dryer or oven to melt them here right now. Here are some fun ideas I found. Sam's Scrap Candy created a melted crayon canvas of her own, but added a personal touch with hand prints:
Maggie and her husband Jeff have a large, blank wall in their house that has been taunting them since they moved in. With both of them having strong creative opinions, it has been hard to agree on what to hang there. That is until they saw this post from Tali at Growing Up Creative . They made it this weekend, put their own spin on it, and are thrilled with the results! Here is how you can do it too:
Shakuntala Zakheim is sharing a fun craft to do with your kids--how to make flowers from duct tape, using an ordinary pen and duct tape in a variety of vibrant colors. The pen serves as the stem of the flower, and the folded duct tape becomes the petals! Check out the video clip above and get ready to try this project with your little ones.
The cheap dollar store flowers that I was using had a plastic stamen at the centre. I was able to fit it on the tip of the LEDs so that it diffused the light nicely. If you don't have anything like this on your flowers or if you are using a real branch and you would like to diffuse the light on your LEDs you can sand the surface or put a dab of glue on it. To assemble the blossoms on the branch, slip the hole of the blossom through the LEDs and secure on the branch with clear tape. I then glued the plastic stamen on.
Part of me is forever stuck at 14 years old. A period in my life where boys made me blush, sequins made me smile, and the right music set the scene for a one-woman dance party in my bedroom. The boys and music may have changed but, like sequins, the effects remain the same if done right (yes, boys… or I guess men in this case can be done right.
Já faz um tempinho que detectamos uma onda de pulseiras de corrente decoradas com trabalhos em crochê e linhas nas lojas mais bacanas de acessórios. O trabalho é supervalorizado porque muitas vezes o material da pulseira é de ouro, e o trabalho artesanal também tem o seu valor. Quem virou febre da modinha lá fora e vende suas peças no Net-a-Porter é o designer Aurélie Bidermann . As joias são feitas com materiais nobres, e as correntes são todas de ouro 18k.
You’ve decided you want to improve your handwriting and you’re probably hoping a fountain pen will do the trick -- maybe a friend told you it would. Maybe you’re just adventurous and you want to try your hand at calligraphy (or you might, once your handwriting improves). Good for you! A fountain pen may make your writing look a bit better, but if your writing looks as if frenzied chickens got loose on the page, chances are this won’t be enough. Most likely, you’ll need to retrain your arm and hand.
