DIY guide - draped skirt

DIY guide - draped skirt mandag, 19 september 2011 Her får I den længe ventede DIY guide til at binde en draperet nederdel, som jeg første gang viste i et indlæg fra Kreta. Jeg har brugt et gammelt tørklæde fra H&M, men har I ikke et tørklæde i den stil, kan man købe et langt stykke jersey stof i en stofbutik meget billigt.

Natural Pools or Swimming Ponds

Natural Pools or Swimming Ponds Natural Pools or Natural Swimming Ponds (NSPs) Let nature clean the water... Chemical-free water garden and swimming pool. The plant portion, or regeneration zone, is separated from the swimming area by the wall seen a few inches below the water’s surface. www.naturalswimmingpools.com The pools have skimmers and pumps that circulate the water through the regeneration zone and back into the swimming area.
I've been having a love affair with bird motifs since many years now, so my heart skipped a beat when I saw a flock of birds' tattoo for the first time. I've been collecting them since then. I know bird tattoos are currently super trendy, but I love them anyway! As far as I'm concerned, I'm not ready for a tattoo (I have a VERY low tolerance to pain), so as an alternative, I opted for temporary transfer tattoos! Yes, just like those we found as inserts in bubble gums when we were kids. Inspiration : bird tattoos + DIY temporary tattoos

I drink a lot of wine. And end up with a lot of empty wine bottles that are oh so pretty, it breaks my heart to have to junk them with the raddi- walla. I've been trying to find all sorts of utility excuses to hang on to them - wate bottles, plant holders and what have you. Bottle (w)rap

D.I.Y. recycled book journal | By Krystin MacPherson hello all! i thought i would share a fun D.I.Y. with you all! i took a class in college called “the illustrated journal” and learned this technique of making journals out of old book covers. at Jefferson, our library recently discarded a bunch of books so i grabbed a couple for journal making. this is a really fun way to make a journal out of recycled objects that are not in use anymore. (this is not like book burning or anything, you can keep the pages and read the book if you please…) i hope you enjoy this how to! it is my first one, so let me know if you have any suggestions!

DIY Braided Bead Bracelet - Honestly WTF - StumbleUpon

DIY Braided Bead Bracelet - Honestly WTF - StumbleUpon

It’s been awhile since our last bracelet DIY. I don’t know about you, but our wrists have been begging for another colorful addition for months now. So after playing with some materials that were already on hand, we’ve created a tutorial for a braided bead bracelet, which is a not so distant cousin of the hex nut and wrap bracelet. Because honestly, you can never have too many . . . You’ll need: Cut the waxed linen cord into a 26″ and 19″ piece.
Last week I saw this pin on Pinterest and I instantly loved the idea. Starting May 1st, I’ll be taking the challenge and posting a drawing per day here on my blog each afternoon. If you’d like to do it on your own, please please do! If you’d like to share your drawing on my blog, just email it to me by 12pm EST the day of. It doesn’t matter if you start now and submit them later or sketch them throughout May. It’s just a great way to encourage myself to sketch daily and maybe you need that encouragement too! allison lehman : show + tell / 30 Day Drawing Challenge

Get a regular-sized envelope. Address it to someone special. Then, stuff it with as many things as you can: a letter, photographs, ripped out magazine articles, photocopies of poems, a short story, or passages from a novel, recipes, clipped newspaper articles, art work, poems or stories you’ve written… Anything that can be folded up and put in the envelope. Make sure to stuff it so full that you need to use tape to keep it sealed. This envelope should have serious heft.
