Winter skin has been an issue for me, for as long as I can remember. All summer long I swim, garden and hike around in the Southern California sun. Occasionally I will leave my skin outdoors for too long, turning it bright pink (never the deep, creamy brown my mom and sister have) but it always bounces right back to my soft, milk-white and freckly skin.
We're still in summer mode here, though for K. today is the last day of his summer vacation, unfortunately. This year's summer vacation has been very relaxing - Carpe Diem (seize the day) has been our motto. We've been doing plenty of things but only because we wanted to. And today I really wanted to do something crafty! So I did. It took me a while before I came up with something, though.
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25, 2012 | Comments: 98 Spell out your feelings with this easy-to-make sign of love. To make this you will need: wire reinforced clothesline (available at home improvement & hardware stores), yarn & wire clippers. Clip off a length of clothesline (it took about a yard to make this) and shape into the word, "LOVE".
I hereby professed my love for doilies and crafts (Winston Edit: And me!) , hence it will be displayed profoundly in our wedding. The first item to support that statement is my exquisite doilies envelope, inspired by Martha Stewart’s Wedding. A little update, I am in the midst of expanding my previous company, Diary & Design Wedding into a specialized design & decor for wedding & event, Rosette Designs , while my partner will be focusing more in wedding planning under Wedding Diary. So look for us if you are looking for wedding design & decor! It was supposed to be an envelope liner, but I converted it into an actual envelope.
Things you need for this DIY: *boxes *tin foil *glue *a craft paint brush *a palette knife, letter opener or popsicle stick *a sharpie *rubbing alcohol *an X-acto knife or any other little knife Total time: approx. 1 hour per box Total cost: I already had everything I needed for this DIY but if you had to buy everything but the tin foil, glue, rubbing alcohol and knife, I assume the total cost would range from $10-20 depending on the boxes you buy. Mine were all cheap or free. diy tin box So I always buy boxes at craft stores and keep boxes little gifts come in and I never really do anything with them.
Are you a sweatshirt gal? I am not. I own one sweatshirt from my favorite college. I pull it out for a chilly night around the campfire or when facing a gusty ocean breeze. But, otherwise, I find them a bit binding on my matronly body.
a while back i showed you i’d made a little clip-in pen case that fitted my filofax ‘personal’ sized organizer. i love my organizer and its near perfect but with just one pen holder how was i to live?! i need a bunch of different colored pens on hand to er, color code my tasks. after i posted the pic of the original pen case i had lots of nice comments and tweets etc asking me if i’d share a pattern, and after road testing the original pencase for a few months i had a few modifications in mind. as you can see i just had to scan some of the fabric and print out a little matching cover for my notepad: the new design is way better than the original. it might be made from a pretty vintage bed sheet, but its made to last and fits the organizer perfectly. as well as that it now features a pocket on the back that can hold random loose papers or a little notepad!
