This picture has been sitting in my inspiration folder for months and for almost as long, I've been hunting for this shirt. When I finally found it, the price was more than I was willing to spend, so instead, I created a look alike using an old t-shirt. I'm very pleased with the results, though I wish I had made the braids a bit thicker. Thin braids and all, heres how:
When I was getting paint chips for the notebooks I showed you a couple days ago, I wasn't sure which size I wanted to use, so I grabbed a variety and ended-up with some leftovers. It seems like a total waste to just toss the extras, so I spent some time playing around with different ideas. There are tons of ideas out there for using paint chips, but I don't ever see ideas using the paint chips that have the cute little squares cut out of them.
I loved this idea because not only can you recycle these horrid polystyrene containers, but the process is really simple.
I’ve been experimenting with tinting mason jars to create a look like those old vintage ones that are difficult to find anymore in second hand stores. I think I’ve finally honed in on the perfect method. Would you like to see how it’s done? Check out the DIY here . Fill them with flowers, or illuminate an outdoor party filling them with battery operated tea lights or a strand of twinkle lights. I promise it’s easier than you think.

I love the look of family photos printed on canvas, but I never knew I could make them at home! After transferring photos to fabric , I was super excited to try some pieces using stretched canvas. I hope this inspires some of you to make something special for your home... Here's how I transferred my photo to canvas: 1. Supplies needed- stretched canvas (I chose an 8x10 size), gel medium (I used this kind from Liquidex ), paint brush and the image you want to transfer (laser copy) and a spray bottle filled with water.

UPDATE: I’ve added the stencil to DIY your own Moroccan rug in this other post . I love the dark wood floors we have in our home. The problem is that, since they are so dark, they show every little bit of dust, especially in the living room, which gets a lot of traffic.
Here is a simple yet stylish photo frame that can accomodate quite many photos at once. The idea is very simple. Fasten twines on the empty frame and hang photos using clothes pins on them.
I know I promised more food posts this week, and I do have some ready, but I got so distracted with this tutorial and then felt I just had to finish it and post it before doing anything else. Anything else. Like washing dishes or preparing for our blueberry-picking trip or doing laundry or eating lunch. Sometimes projects do that to you, you know? So here is a tutorial for alphabet block fridge magnets or photo holders.
