Jellyfish in a Bottle. Plastic Bag Bags are where its at. - StumbleUpon. At Summer's End Autumn Begins. by berrypatchusa on Etsy. Rustic. Say YES! to hoboken: DIY: Homemade Glitter. Homemade shimmery glitter is probably the easiest thing you can make and really pretty to look at.

say YES! to hoboken: DIY: Homemade Glitter

Plus, this version is edible and nontoxic for crafting. Supplies: table salt, food coloring and a tupperware container to mix in. A little silver dust used in decorating cakes adds some shimmer-if you’re a shimmer kind of girl-but it’s not completely necessary. Pour some salt into the tubberware. As much or little as you want, depending upon how much glitter you want to make.

Isn’t it pretty? Crafts.


Eco-Friendly Bath Mat – Fun DIY Project. Persephone Magazine &124; Blog &124; The Lazy Lady's Guide to... - StumbleUpon. At some point near the middle of March, I always decide that I’m “done” with winter.

The sweaters and jackets get pushed to the back of the closet, the flip flops come out, and I inevitably freeze my butt off for several weeks until the weather catches up with my warm-weather state of mind. Likewise, my cravings for fresh herbs and veggies are always a little ahead of the season. Growing your own herbs is a great way to save money and avoid buying too much at a time and letting most of it go to waste. If it’s still too cold to plant outside where you are (or if you’re short on space!) This hanging herb garden is the perfect project to get you in gear for spring. What you’ll need: Tin containers with snap-on plastic lids (tea, cocoa, and coffee cans are a good bet), coat hangers, pliers, scissors, herbs (I bought basil, rosemary, dill, and cilantro for about $2.50 each), masking tape, coffee filters, a nail, a hammer, X-acto knife, scrap fabric or paper, and glue or spray adhesive.

Lovely Spaces - Craft room

This past weekend was so crazy! We lost our power Thursday night – I’m so glad I schedule my draft post – The bad part I spend days without power in our house, when you work in your computer that’s kind of a vital ingredient hehe. This past storm was pretty big and brought a lot of snow and that caused a lot of trees fall down =[ It was my first time in a storm like this and it was pretty surprising to see a lot of street closed, cars stuck and not being able to cook or have heater (the bad part about having electric stove!) So now that you are all updated in my weekend, I want to share some of my favorite Craft room/Office images, all of them collected via Pinterest!

Top 10: Shelves And Shelving

I don’t remember the exact name of the product, but I do remember that the commercial exhausted all the obvious self/shelf puns: “shelf esteem,” “shelf confidence,” “shelf defense,” “shelf-employed,” etc., etc. So I’ll forgo the obvious opportunities this topic offers for shelf-referential humor and just get down to business.
