Also los geht’s: Here we go: Ein bisschen Kleber auf ein Herz der Streudeko geben… Put some glue on one of the hearts… …Herz auf den Korken drücken. Und Zeit gemessen?

DIY: Swing Shelf So…as you can see this pregger mama has been quite busy with all sorts of DIY projects that will complete the room being shared by kiddo #1 and kiddo #2. This project was quick and easy, plus it turned out really cute and was theme-appropriate for my lil’ surfer boys. I was inspired by the adorable Swing Shelf from Pottery Barn Kids (no longer available…bummer dude!). So, what’s a girl to do? I had to make it!!

Tiny Pumpkin Pie My family’s Thanksgiving meal always features a magnificently high homemade pie-to-person ratio. I love the warm wafting scent of spices, pumpkin, and expertly rolled-out crusts emanating from a hot oven, and that anticipation of dessert after any already delicious dinner spent with friends and family feasting. Is your belly rumbling already too? For this week’s How-Tuesday post, Jessica Partain from Inedible Jewelry, a shop dedicated to mouth-wateringly realistic faux food jewelry, and author of The Polymer Clay Cookbook, has shared with us a tutorial on making miniature polymer clay pumpkin pie charms that actually smell like pumpkin pie. Thanksgiving just wouldn’t be complete without pumpkin pie! Purchase The Polymer Clay Cookbook right here on Etsy. Materials: For the crust: 3/8″ (9.5 mm) ball ecru clay 3/16″ (4.7 mm) ball ecru clay For the filling: 5/8″ (15.9 mm) ball orange clay For the whipped cream: 3/8″ (9.5 mm) ball white clay Directions: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13.

How to Make Leaf Skeletons I wanted to share with you a project from one of my readers who shares with us how to make leaf skeletons. I LOVE this! I have several leafs in various forms displayed in my home and knew I needed to make some of her leaf skeletons to add to my decor. I love how a pattern of leaves can enhance the beauty in your home. I have spent hours and tried various ways of making these. You need washing soda, not baking soda! Gather your leaves. Washing soda is a strong base so you may want to wear gloves when handling the leaves. You will add 3/4 cup of washing soda and 4 cups of water to your pot of leaves. Keep going, you will need to add more water so your pan doesn’t dry out. When 1.75 hours are up fill a glass baking dish with cool water. I carefully removed them and rinsed with water and added clean water to the pan. If you’re still with me, this is what I ended up with… I have a maple leaf which turned out not so well. 37.1Kstumbleupon

DIY Roman Shades & It always feels great when you have your mind set on how you want something to look and then it all comes together. This is exactly what has happened with my entry way/porch area.

Once that was done and the porch was all cleared out I knew I had to make it something that was worth having. Waverly Chippendale Fretw Quartz Premier Prints Gotcha White/Candy Pink Waverly Cross Section Raspberry I knew I wanted a geometric pattern so that almost immediately eliminated the second fabric (Waverly Chippendale) and I wasn’t too sure about that first print because of the whole papaya part. Fabric, Measuring Tape, Scissors, Fabric Glue, Mini Blinds. 1. 2. Should look like this when it’s all done. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Project: Gory Brain Cap By Jeromina Juan If you’ve been brainstorming Halloween DIY costume ideas, no need to bang your head on a brick wall. It’s time to put on your thinking cap. Literally! With just a ball cap, squiggles of caulking (the stuff made for sealing tubs, sinks, and windows), and dabs of paint, this bloody brain is yours to wear on fright night. It’s best to study pictures of the human brain before tackling this project in order to best mimic the brain’s convolution patterns when caulking the cap. Materials Fitted cap, without adjusterCraft knife or seam ripper Newspaper Acrylic paint, red and blackPaintbrush Bowl, approximately same size as capTall jar Plastic bag 2 tubes of latex or acrylic caulking (not silicone)*, ivory or bone colorCaulking gun Water Gloves *NOTE: Silicone caulking is not paintable. Directions Step 1: Remove the cap’s brim by carefully ripping the seams with a craft knife or seam ripper. Step 2: Place the cap on newspaper. Step 7: Let the caulking cure for 24 hours. Related

paint chip calendar A few weeks ago, I saw this paint chip calendar on my friend David’s blog Cheltenham Road and knew I had to make one! It combines two things that I love…stylishness and organization. And the fact that it utilizes paint chips? Even better. I mostly followed David’s tutorial with just a few modifications. Since I planned for this calendar to hang in my office, I chose paint chips that would coordinate with the room and with the pin board that hangs on the adjacent wall. Here’s my version. materials needed: poster frame, fabric, hot glue gun, 35 paint chips, paper trimmer, corner rounder, fabric glue, foam brush 1) Purchase a poster frame (mine came from Target…$9.99). 2) Remove the edges from the frame. 3) Cover the cardboard insert with fabric using hot glue to secure it on the back, pulling tightly to keep the fabric smooth. 4) Trim the paint chips with a paper trimmer (I chose to leave the paint color names but cut off the brand). These BH&G paint chips came from Wal-Mart. Sharing here:

mother's day mini album With Mother's Day quickly approaching I thought it would be fun to take the next few weeks and focus on mom as we countdown to the big day! There'll be fabulous gift ideas, FREE printables and lots more to share over the next few weeks, so stay tuned! Today, I'm excited to kick off the countdown to Mother's day, with this handmade mini album idea + a FREE downloadable digital template. I created this album a few years ago as part of a special issue for Simple Scrapbooks magazine. I shared some questions with my mom and had her answer them in an email for me. The design + the supply list are pretty simple. This album came together in only a couple of hours, after I'd gathered the journaling from my mom and I'm so happy with how it turned out and for the chance it gave me to get to know a little bit more about her. To make it even simpler to put together your own mini album for mom, I created these FREE digital templates just for you!

Craftaholics Anonymous® Happy Monday, Crafters! Hope you had a nice weekend. I’ve been working on decorating my breakfast nook {yes, we’ve lived here for over a year and i still have TONS of bare walls!} I made this totally awesome Spoon Mirror for the little corner in my kitchen and I am kind of in love with it! The color, the texture, and the price is right….it cost me only a couple dollars to make! When I told Davis I was making this spoon flower, he thought I was crazy. How to Make a Spoon Wreath Supplies: cardboard, hot glue gun, 3″ round mirror, spray paint, scissor, 78-80 clear plastic spoons, small piece of ribbon Skill Level: Beginner Instructions: Cut a 12″ circle from a cardboard box. Cut about a 4″ piece of ribbon, shape into a loop and hot glue to the back of the cardboard to use to hang it on the wall. Seriously, such a fun craft! If you save and reuse your plastic spoons, this is a great way to retire some of the old ones! Are you excited to see my Breakfast Nook all decorated? happy crafting, Linda
