Inspiration and original craft ideas for weddings, parties, children, such as home decoration, gifts, cards, personal accessories and templates Chalk popsicles Draw pictures on the sidewalk is a fun activity that keeps kids entertained for hours.! Face t-shirt hangers page corner bookmarks This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks.

Tutorial per la carta di compleanno Pop Up As promised, here is the tutorial for my Sister-in-law's Pop Up Birthday card. It can be viewed here. You will need to scroll past my kitty photos. :) You will need: How to Animate Clay Edit Article Edited by Krystle C., Jack Herrick, Ben Rubenstein, Josh W. and 44 others Clay animation is an obscure yet amazing art form. In the following ten steps, you will learn how to turn a ball of clay into a figure of your choice. Then you will animate the figure and create a short clay animation video of your own.

Patterns New craft ideas every Thursday Patterns Patterns, even the simple ones, can take a surprising amount of work to put together and pretty-up for other people’s use. If you’ve found some of my patterns useful and would like to donate a few dollars for them, I’d be most grateful! Paper patterns and templates Sewing patterns kate’s recycled cakestands this diy project is inspired by one of my favorite ceramic artists, sarah cihat. i found most of my plates and candlesticks at goodwill. i also used some of those little vases you get when someone gives you flowers, which normally i think are ugly, but here they seem to have found a purpose! i left many of the cakestands bare because i love the original plate designs. if you aren’t happy with the plate or base you can always paint them, or give them a graphic silhouette design (instructions below) like sarah’s rehabilitated dishware. so, if you’re ready to create your own diy cakestands (which operate well as cupcake-stands, too!) click here for the full instructions. happy crafting!

a little ART CAN'T HURT lately finding balance has been something of a struggle. for this girl who has always worked outside the home, not currently having employment has me in a twilight zone. home life now seems like it was easier when loads of laundry, kids homework and dirty dishes had to be squeezed into the wee hours of mornings and nights of full days where ongoing work projects and encroaching deadlines were priority. i used to inwardly roll my eyes when i would hear a stay-at-home mom friend mention how stressed she was and how there wasn’t enough time in the day to get everything done. If she only knew….i would think to myself. i was that judgemental working mom. now the shoe’s on the other foot and let me be the first to put my foot in my mouth. methaphorically, of course. so may i offer my apologies to all stay-at-home moms, for being judgemental. i am truly and sincerely sorry.

Sisal Rope Bowl I once fell in love with a rope bowl, it was by David Stark for West Elm. Sadly that awesome rope bowl is no longer available, bring it back, bring it back I say! My latest crafty project was inspired by that bowl and I believe has something to do with my fixation on neutrals with layers of texture. In fact, I think I need an entire Pinterest category devoted to it. I’ve had that rope bowl on my mind for many months, so I snagged a cheapo metal bowl from a craft store on clearance a few weeks ago, plus a couple of rolls of sisal rope from my local hardware store, and then got crafty with my glue gun.
