Popup Happy Birthday By Ashley Page Norton When I saw these silver foil Helvetica stickers, I knew I had to use them somehow! This popup happy birthday message would look great set up on a coworker’s desk or as a surprise somewhere around the house (like in a medicine cabinet or on top of a dresser). You can customize the message by adding the recipients’s name or changing it to say whatever you like. It would also be cute to mail them to a long distance birthday boy or girl – they can unscramble the letters and set them up wherever they want!

DIY - I made three embroidery projects for the new german craft book called "Stitch It Yourself" by Knaur Kreativ. One of them is this cool wallhanging embroidered with extra chunky yarn. I crocheted the "fabric" from fabric yarn (I used Re-Cotton) to get a nice sturdy surface with a loose enough wave to put the thick yarn thru with just my fingers.

There are almost 7000 pages dedicated to the sale of art. Collages, drawings, illustration, photography, prints, sculptures, fiber art, mixed media and paintings; the art category is (and has been for a long time) in the top five categories of items listed and sold on the website. Not all of it is good, even less of it is great but as you sift through the pages you will discover that somewhere between the good, the bad and the ugly lies a truly unique and wonderfully executed piece of art. What defines the wonderful is up to you and if you can’t be bothered looking through the thousands and thousands of entries, then let someone else do it for you. There are blogs that document the best art on Etsy, listing up to one hundred of the better artists, such as a thing of beauty and Etsy Art.

DIY Gadgets - Page 4 by Julie One of the scariest health epidemics of my generation was HIV. I remember quite clearly its emergence on the scene, the graphic news footage of those first infected, people slowly dying from something so misunderstood and scary. It doesn’t seem to be big news anymore, but it’s still killing people all over the world. Well, OraSure, the company that brought us the first healthcare administered oral specimen HIV test available all the way back in 1994, have now developed OraQuick, a simple at-home test that allows people to test themselves in the privacy of their own homes for the virus that causes AIDS. Imagine, an FDA approved, over-the-counter HIV test that requires only a simple mouth swab and 20-40 minutes of your time.

{DIY} Fishtail Bracelet - Typical House Cat These DIY fishtail bracelets were a product of my impatience. I ordered a bunch of Chinese knotting cord to make this necklace and the cord arrived a couple of days before the rest of the supplies I needed. I immediately became obsessed with it, making all sort of macramé and friendship bracelets. If you’ve been following DIY blogs then you’ve seen plenty of macramé lately but hopefully, this is the first time you are seeing the fishtail or herringbone weave.
