Project 30 Week 30 – Circular Paint Chip Art Happy Mother’s Day!! I am so excited, because with this post I will have successfully completed my 30x30x3 journey, and on time too! I couldn’t be happier with the projects I’ve completed, and I can’t wait to keep going with some new projects, and maybe some new features as well. I know I’ve posted paint chip art before, but that technique was so different from this one I felt these pieces deserved their own post. All of these pieces are created from circles of three different sizes, 1 1/2″, 1″ and 1/2″. I started experimenting with using a singular color palette, as you can see in this turquoise version, and I think it is a fun variation. This may not have been the project I was planning, but it certainly has quite a celebratory look (especially those small ones, they remind me of confetti!) I’m hoping to have some other new projects going soon, but at the same time I just started my new job this week and so it will take a little bit of adjusting to my new schedule. Like this:

Essentialsof Buddhism - core concepts Dry erase board out of a picture frame - StumbleUpon 133.2K Flares Twitter 7 Facebook 69 Pin It Share 3.9K 3K+ StumbleUpon 129.2K Filament.io Made with Flare More Info 133.2K Flares × I purchased a few cheap 12×16 picture frames from Wal-mart for $3.00 a piece and brought them home, cut out scrapbook paper and attached it to the inside of the frame. I used double sided tape to stick the 12×12 sheets together then just cut off the remaining amount of paper before I attached it to the inside of the frame. I have seen these all over lately and decided to make a few. I have seen them used for grocery lists, caledars, or just for a Honey do list I added some ribbon and rosettes just to spice them up a little bit. As you can see I also attache a dry erase marker to the side with velcro. Here are a few I made.

Zip-up Earbuds & LauPre I love to have my music with me everywhere I go, but I hate the tangled mess my wires become when I toss them in my bag or pocket. Last night I whipped up a fun and functional solution by adding a zipper to my earbuds. This project took me around an hour to do (perfect for catching up on some t.v. from hulu.com). The first step is to pull the earbuds apart, to separate the wires all the way down to the plug. Next, take one side of your headphones and one side of the zipper tape and start stitching the wire into the tape. It’s as easy as that! Then unzip them to the length I want and put them on so much faster than having to untangle the mess!

Centsational Girl & Blog Archive & DIY: Paint Stick Sunburst Mirror - StumbleUpon My friends, if there ever was a bandwagon, this carefree DIYer is jumping right on it. For months, I’ve seen fabulous versions of the sunburst mirror pop up all over the blogosphere. And for weeks now, with every stop in the paint department, I couldn’t help but notice how those paint stir sticks might just make a very cool version of this decorative favorite. I couldn’t figure out how to stack them nicely enough around the center to make it worth my effort, but that little road bump didn’t stop me from snagging more than my fair share of free stir sticks at a time, like 8 or 10, over the course of a month. When I read how Danielle used an embroidery hoop, that convinced me to make my own version too! How to Make a (Paint Stir Stick) Sunburst Mirror Paint your embroidery hoop. Some paint stir sticks have a small curve in them, so I simply trimmed mine with my compound miter saw. Test out your design around your mirror so you know how many sticks you’ll need to paint.
Chuckwagon Apple Fritters | Scarletta Bakes I’ve been thinking about the Good Humor truck a lot lately. Like, a lot. This happens to me almost every summer. I get super hot. The sweating starts. Every summer when I was a kid, we would spend our days at the local pool. I was a champion eater. Around 11:19 a.m., I’d start to get excited. Waiting. And then, in the far-off distance, I heard it… Diddly ding da ding da ding ding-a-ling a ding dongggggggggggggg (Whatever. I have to be first in line. Wait – who is that chubby girl standing on curb, sobbing and clutching two melted Push Pops? Sigh. Why am I talking about the Good Humor truck? Seriously, these fritters are simple and simply amazing. I came into the kitchen and found A. sitting next to an empty fritter bowl.
