Hi, it's Mandi from Making Nice in the Midwest. When my husband and I first moved into our ranch home two years ago, we weren't quite sure how to fill out the long living room space, but we were sure we wanted some extra storage for our modest collection of books. After quite some time of living with this empty corner of the living room, I decided the perfect solution for the space was to build an adjustable shelving system that could eventually be lengthened into a workspace. A Beautiful Mess

DIY 6 Easy DIY Paper Party Decorations Jan 08 We’re only a couple of days into the New Year, and we’ve already hit that point: stir-crazy. It probably doesn’t help that the entire country has been in the grip of a “polar vortex,” causing temps to plummet! So, finding things to do inside is becoming a high priority at our household. Plus, we have a birthday party to prepare for this weekend.
One of the things I did this weekend was dress up these lamps I got at an antique store. Check out their new outfits! The lamps didn't come with shades, so I don't know what the original shape would have been. How About Orange
Geninne's Art Blog I thought today I'd tackle the answer to the question I'm asked the most: "What material do you use to make your stamps?" This is my humongous stash of Staedtler's MasterCarve rubber carving blocks. Unfortunately this wonderful material has been discontinued for a few years and it doesn't look like it's making a comeback any time soon. I have enough to last me a decade I guess :-) There is a brand that is very similar and we used it during the stamp carving workshop I taught in Toronto last year, it's called MooCarve. The nice thing about it is that it has the same thickness as the MasterCarve blocks and is very easy to hold when stamping. I doesn't need to be mounted onto wood or acrylic if you don't want to.

November 11, 2013 by ChrisLeave a Comment I haven’t had the pleasure of hosting Thanksgiving in quite a while, and I’m kinda bummed about that. We used to host our “Friendsgiving” and then we switched it up one year and moved it to our friend’s house where it stayed for a few more years. The past few years we’ve been going back […] DIY
This to That (Glue Advice)
Hello everyone! This is a quick post to share a (not so quick) DIY I did a while ago for Alex, a snow globe made from an empty light bulb. I have a soft heart for snow globes, among chocolate, cats and various other things, and I figured it would be awesome if I managed to make one myself! I should tell you from the start, however, that this is one of the most tricky crafts I have done so far and also the only one that failed after one year of use: the tricky part it to perfectly seal the light bulb, which, apparently, I wasn’t able to do… but perhaps you will!
