Exotic Grandmother: Tie Dye for easy spring wardrobe update and tutorial
spring is here and summer isn't far behind. although you have a lot of cute basics from last year, there are probably a few items in the back of your closet that you are not looking forward to wearing this season. either they are too worn out, out of style, or they just don't appeal to your personal tastes any more. don't toss these items in the trash and don't give them away. it's easy to update your warm-weather-wardrobe from last year so you can look chic this year without spending very much money. here's how: *dye kit: Tulip brand dye kits are the best quality kits for your project. they are reasonably priced and come in a wide selection of colors. *white, bleached, or light colored items of rayon, silk, or cotton. *gloves *rubber bands *work space that you can get messy at: outside is best! *bathroom shower or tub: after your dyed items set for 8 hours, the excess dye won't stain anything if it is promptly removed so don't be afraid to rinse off clothes in the tub *dryer (optional)

Clay Craft - Urban Comfort
I'm back! May was one of the craziest months I've ever had, but crazy in a good way. I can't wait to unveil the fall projects I've been working on. But really, who wants to think about fall when there's summer to enjoy? I've been obsessed with texture for the longest while now, which led to the lace decoupaged containers and then to these clay projects. This was only my second time working with clay (and the first time was kid-oriented, so this was an entirely new approach for me). Make a set of coasters or nesting bowls as a weekend house gift, make party favors for summer gatherings, or place them around your house as handy catchalls. See the July issue of Family Circle for directions or get them at Family Circle.com.

Sew, Cook, Laugh and Live: Dying paper doilies
By now, you all must have realised that I love doilies. I have pictures up the top on the banner of this page, down the side as blog buttons & my house is full of them. I love to dye them all fantastic bright & funky colours. I have just dyed my first batch of paper doilies! I love them! It was so super easy. The brighter you make the colour, the better your doily will look. Just put the food colouring & some water (about 1cm deep) in the shallow dish & mix well. Make sure you use gloves other wise you will end up covered in food colouring! Dip the doily into the colour & gently push it down so it is all covered. Place the doily gently onto a tray that is covered with a paper towel. Place on a cookie cooling rack until completely dry. Make sure you have a baking tray under the racks to catch any excess dye. These beautiful paper doilies are going to come in handing for so many uses! The possibilities are endless! For more doily dying ideas, check out these previous posts…

Bra-Making Class - Find Your Size
Now if you are not sure about something, please ask. If you don't want to ask because you think it's too dumb, then Contact the instructor. The only dumb question is the one you don't ask!!! I can also post pictures of any notions you are not sure about. This page will get you started. Firstly, BEFORE you buy the pattern, make sure you have had your measurements taken correctly. Measurement Instructions: Now about these measurements, you need 3, and you must have someone else do it. Also, use our handy MS/Excel spreadsheet: BraSizeFinder (right-click the link, and select "Save File As" to download it for your use). Put your best-fitting bra on and adjust so your boobs aren't sitting down on your waist or under your chin!!!! 1. 2. 3. Got it all. Band size - add 4" to your underbust measurement to give what size band you'll be wearing. e.g., if you measure 36" add 4"= 40". Subtract your upper bust from the full bust to give cup size.

Design your own shoes | DIY | Custom Shoes
Product Name: Sneaker Customization Kit Background research: As summer rapidly approaches, I’m beginning to notice that I need some new sneakers. But I’m starting to realize: either the shoes I like are too expensive or the ones that are affordable, I’m not so crazy about the way they look. Then it dawned on me, what if I were able to create a sneaker that perfectly matched my style & clothes that were already in my closet as opposed of buying a shoe, then having to go buy more things to go with it. Hypothesis: With the sneaker customization kit, I can create my own personal design to whatever sneaker I choose. The Experiment: I took a pair of sneakers that I barely wore, removed the laces, grabbed a couple of “sneaker preparation wipes,” cleaned off the sneakers, & let my imagination do the rest. Being that I am an artist, I analyzed the whole ordeal way too much, beforehand. Need some new kicks?

Coca-Cola Cupcakes - StumbleUpon
I don’t drink coca-cola. But I do eat it. Weird. It’s way better eaten. There’s some dark and white sugar cooked with dark dutch processed cocoa powder…and a can of coke! There’s some the ol’ that pouring into this and this pouring into that. There’s some mixing. Take a little PAM and spray the liners–this is a sticky cupcake batter. UPDATED TIP ALERT: A few of you tried this recipe and sprayed them and the cupcake still stuck. These cupcakes are chocolately, decadent, rich and kind of amaze. This frosting isn’t frosting–it’s just whipped cream. And guess what? Next, cherries on top! P.S. Coca-Cola Cupcakes Recipe adapted from Baked: The New Frontier Yields 15 cupcakes Print this recipe! Cupcakes: 2 cups Coca-cola (do not use diet!) Whipped Cream Frosting: 1 1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream 4 tablespoons of powdered sugar 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract Maraschino cherries (for topping) Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
