Hvis I køber et stykke stof der er lidt tykkere, behøver I ikke folde det på midten, bare det ikke er gennemsigtig, of course :) Jeg håber at I kan lide guiden og at den er til at forstå, ellers spørger I bare.

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. (my skin doesn't miss it. as a matter of fact, i now wish i listened more and DID put SPF on my face...hindsight is 20/20). my mom calls me from her walk on the beach almost every morning... *sigh*yeah, i get a little homesick around this time of the year. heck on my pinterest my "dreaming of summer" has the most pictures in it. ah yes. i miss my ocean. case in point. this bracelet, brought a flood of memories, not because i used to have one like it but because i can totally see me wearing it by the beach, not caring that it's gotten salty and wet, because i can totally make another one in like less than 5 minutes flat when i get home.

*sigh* okay... *cut off excess tails! Diy {bird nest necklace} I have been seeing a lot of bird nest jewelry around lately. They are beautiful and I love the trend so I thought I would try making my own. These turned out to be really easy to make and require just a few simple supplies. This necklace would make a lovely Mother's day gift, which just happens to be coming up this weekend! What you'll need: - Jewelry wire (I prefer using a 24 gage because it is easier to manipulate but the 20 gage can work well too with the help of some round nose pliers) - pearls or glass beads - necklace chain - jump ring and a clasp Select the beads you want, string them onto your wire and arrange them as you'd like. then simply wrap the wire around the beads wrap some wire in the space between each bead (I like the look of three loops but you could just do one or two if you prefer) this is what the back looked like.

Now attach a jump ring and a clasp to the end of a necklace chain and this is what you end up with :) I love how each one is so different. Spa Scrubbie and Tropical Bath Tea Soak!

Sometimes it can get a bit crazy feeling like I’m going in a million different directions – and even when I’m alone I feel like there is so much to get done. One of my favorite ways to relax is with a nice, long, super hot bath. There’s nothing quite as relaxing as filling a bath with something yummy smelling, grabbing a book, and having some time to just . . . . rest.

(Apparently I also have a number of books that like to take baths also, because they seem to just jump right in the water. I have a whole wrinkly-dropped-in-the-bath-then-dried-out section on my bookshelf. ) I hope you agree because I have just the thing for you - a tutorial for a Spa Scrubbie and a soothing Tropical Bath Tea Soak!

I have the blessing to be part of a great organization inside of the church I belong to; called Young Women. The theme for the girls {age 12 to 17} this year is “believe”. I’ve been thinking a lot during the last six months about such a simple word and what it means to me… However it was during this weekend that I found myself thinking more deeply about it while working on these little necklaces that I was making for our girls… So please forgive me if you came visiting looking for a craft or just a cool tutorial because I am afraid that today what you are getting instead is a piece of my heart… These are the tools I used to make the necklaces: My sweet friend Bonnie’s Steel Stamping Set, Hammer {the poor thing has seen better days}, Sharpie and a cleaning rag.

Materials Your choice size washers. 1/8″ Steel Stamps. Chain and Embellishments. The first thing I did was stamp the washers. For this I used the 1/8″ steel stamps and a hammer. After I had stamped the washers they looked like this… …love them! DIY: Hair Comb. *UPDATE! See the step-by-step instructions here. This is a super simple project. All you need is a hair comb and embroidery floss. I had a pack of hair combs that I got at Walgreens a long time ago (Like 10 or 12 combs for $4- they still have them). Plus vintage embroidery floss from forever ago.

I'm going to keep these old photos up for kicks and giggles. :) But I decided to make another comb and take a few photos. I wrapped in a V-shape pattern. *Update: Forgot to mention that this layout is from Pugly Pixel. New Ring Designs. November 24th, 2010 A while ago I bought lots of antique silver spoon sets when we visited Colin’s sister Morag and her family over the summer as they live near Spoon Central – a little village called Horncastle that is full to the brim with small antique shops.

As I’ve been without my camera for what seems like months, I’ve not been able to photograph any of my ‘work in progress’ for a while. I have been busy, just not really been able to blog about it. Well my camera arrived back from the lab all shiny and new the other day and so today I spent some time taking images of the new rings I’ve made from the spoons I bought over the summer. So here are a few shots of my new rings – in spoon format and then transformed into things of beauty for someone special… This is a shot of all the spoons prior to sanding, filing and polishing.

I’ve removed the bowls and rounded and smoothed the ends. Before and after shots of set 1 Before and after shots of set 2 I love the flower design of this spoon. DIY Bracelets - Honestly WTF. The Hipster Home » Blog Archive » How to Make a Tiny Terrarium in a Light Bulb.
