Home » Cuneiform Revealed The cuneiform script can seem bafflingly complex at first. This section aims to demystify it, by explaining how cuneiform developed over three thousand years, how it was used, and how you can learn it. We also provide a short introduction to the Akkadian language, which was written in cuneiform script, and suggest ways to continue learning. Knowledge and Power - Cuneiform Revealed: an introduction to cuneiform script and the Akkadian language
Cuneiform is one of the oldest forms of writing known, and was used in ancient Mesopotamia. It means ‘wedge-shaped’, because people wrote it using a reed stylus cut to make a wedge-shaped mark on a clay tablet. 1. Roll the lump of clay into a ball, then flatten it with your hand until it is about 2cm thick. Smooth the top into a flat surface for writing on. 2. Cuneiform tablet

» Grupo Frivolité ...y » Frivolité y por ultimo este sitio expléndido » Yarnp Layer ... Nos enseñan está técnica bastante desconocida o no muy popular a pesar de su belleza, quizás porque sea algo complicada, así como que pasa bastante desapercibida por decirlo de alguna manera, confundiéndose con el crochet, yo al menos identifico mal el frivolité, los trabajos son similares pero con el frivolité se trabaja de distinta forma, con hilo más fino, también recuerda un poco al macrame es por eso que yo la confundo, aunque me gustaría probar alguna vez, y como veremos aquí en este tutorial para principiantes paso a paso... la técnica es única y muy bella.

I recently saw a marbleized nail technique on Pinterest and was so inspired to try it. After several attempts I finally got the nail technique down and decided to do something more unique with it. Taking the glass ornaments that I purchased from Michaels, I created a water marble ornament. You can check out my video tutorials on how to marbleize an ornament and how to water marble nails . I also created a monogrammed marbleized image by cutting out the letter A from a sticker (you could user painters tape, I just had this sticker on hand) with an Exacto knife.
One of the things I love about our internet sewing community is the plethora of free patterns and resources. I’ve compiled a gallery of the best free dress patterns I’ve found while pinning. Most of the patterns require that you join the site to download them (which, in my opinion, is well worth it). Some of these patterns were designed by yours truly, but most of them are my favorites from BurdaStyle and smaller blogs. Am I missing any great dress patterns? Leave a comment : )
UPDATE: I have completely re-written this tutorial with all new photos and better instructions and it is available as a licensed pattern in my pattern shop . The free tutorial for personal use is still available below! I use a little zippered pouch to carry around my earbuds since they are the fancy microphone ones and I don’t want them to break or get tangled. Some of you have commented that you are looking for some small, simple gift ideas.
I love the look of naturally curly hair! My sweet friend, Katie , told me about rag rolling. It's a quick and simple way to get natural looking curls without using a curling iron! I asked her to share her method here on A Beautiful Mess because I knew you'd be itching to learn like I was! Enjoy... You'll need some cut fabric strips, a comb and some water.
Ahoy there Hipster Homers! I’m Julie and I’m the very first guest blogger on this fine site. Today’s project involves breaking stuff, plants, found objects, and miniatures. Fun, right?

Sock It To Your Energy Bill! Make Your Own Draft Stopper Did you know….According to the U.S. Department of Energy, drafts can waste 5% to 30% of your energy use!? That’s a LOT of $$$ over the course of a winter! I’m pretty sure I’m losing even MORE than that in my home office which has both an inside door and a door that goes to the outside .
Probably The Cutest Thing I’ve Ever Made With Felt As the title states, this is probably the cutest thing I’ve ever made with felt. I LOVE it! I got the idea from the cover of this month’s Country Living , which has a felt sunflower pillow adorably displayed on a couch. When I got the magazine my eyes immediately went to the pillow and I said, “I’m going to make that”.
I added some extra juice to the swap. Currently I am short of 3 people to join, but I think I will send out my package real soon because I don't want sweet Anthea wait too long. So, these are illustrated plastic seal bag, drawn by me, using only black, red, and blue because those are my only color stock for permanent markers (mental note : go buy more colors). babalisme: Art Swap : Continued
If you’ve been around here for long you may have gathered that we have a thing for maps…and from what I can see they are popping up all over the home decor universe so I’m embracing it! I was cleaning out a drawer not too long ago and found some old maps from when my husband and I lived in Italy and thought they’d make perfect little coasters so I DIY’ed a few up. Super fast, super easy, and best of all-FREE since I had everything on hand! Maps, chipboard coasters, Mod Podge…check! I traced the coasters (which I bought literally 3 years ago for a craft project) onto the maps trying to line them up to get the “cool” spots. You can guess what comes next in this crazy complicated tutorial, yes, I cut them out. DIY Map Coasters | The Happier Homemaker

Alright, you nerds, it's time for another 'book'torial. The whole reason I created the first two 'book'torials ( here and here ) was so that I could create this nerdy chic book clutch. I'm completely smitten with how it turned out.
