Dismount Creative – M&J Challenger 2! Dismount Creative is as a place for people to step out of their day-to-day routine and get together to make cool, modern crafts. Here are the great projects she came up with for the M&J Challenge 2. Project 1: Tie-dye Camera Strap Like many bloggers I carry my camera almost everywhere. Lugging around a DSLR can be a pain, but it’s much more fun with straps that feel like a cool accessory! Materials:Muslin 3” x 60” RIT Dye String Squirt bottles Hardware store chain 36” Leather: 2 strips 3/8” x 12” Rivets + rivet setting tools Directions Sew along the length of the prewashed muslin strip and then turn it right side out using a safety pin. Project 2: Simple Ribbon Camera Strap My little Diana Mini is way too cute to be carried by the 70’s vinyl strap that came standard. Materials:Split key rings – 2 Ribbon – At least 36” Jewelry Chain – At least 24” Weave the ribbon through the chain and knot on each end to secure.Attach the chain to the brackets on your camera using a split key ring. Directions: adult crafts Thing 1 & Thing 2 Peg People I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Picture from the book "The Cat in the Hat" by Dr. A glimpse into my crafty crazy mind: looking at clothespin "peg person" looking at pom pom "looks like hair" placed pom pom on top of clothespin "looks like clown hair" "gasp, it looks like thing1 & thing 2!" Yep, that pretty much sums it up. Supplies:GlueBlue pom pomsWood clothespins or wood peg people - both are inexpensive and can be found at the craft storeRed & white acrylic paint or paint markers - I actually used both for this project but not necessaryPaint brushBlack fine point pen - I used a Micron 03Acrylic Gloss If using a clothespin, you'll want to saw off the bottom it so it will stand on it's own. Paint the rest of the body red. Once the paint is completely dry, add the details. Apply glue to the top and back of head.

Handy Hints and Tips - How to help, help with... Mason Jar Key Hook Hey guys! Hope you all had a great Wednesday I have a fun project to share today! I started with a 1×8 board from Lowe’s that I cut to about 2′ long. I also purchased 3 hooks and a pipe clamp from Lowe’s. My next step was attaching them to my board. Then it was time to attach the clamp. I used a 3/4″ wood screw to attach it to my board. Finally, I added to picture hangers to the back of it and hung it up. I love it. I’m thinking these would be super cute hand towel hooks for the bathroom. Thanks for stopping by! I will show you my new paint method in my next post so stay tuned. ~Whitney

Eye on Fashion: Couldn't wait, i had to wear Lanvin now! I was one of the lucky bloggers who could wear the Lanvin collection before the others, touch the fabrics, take the pictures, have them as a gift, neither Madonna or Jlo could have them in advance.

How to Make Your Own Beauty Products from Scratch - Health - GOOD Let's keep things simple this week. When it comes to personal-care products, we are big believers in streamlining what you use—see "Eight Products You Think You Need But Don't" for a refresher—buying less in general, and getting creative. We have both always loved experimenting in our kitchens and our bathrooms, checking ingredients in products we love, isolating the main ones, and then trying them on their own. Sometimes it works: A favorite hair leave-in contained aloe, for example, so one day we tried aloe alone and found that, lo and behold, it worked just fine on its own. And sometimes it didn't. Over the years we have tried dozens of DIY beauty recipes to find ones we like—and that work. Simple body scrub Honey face wash We already told you about our new favorite homemade face wash last week but here's the recipe: In the palm of your hand, combine a tablespoon of raw, unfiltered honey with a half a tablespoon of baking soda, mix it together, and apply to damp skin.

Turn a DVD Lens into a Cellphone Macro Lens Redux So, why exactly do you guys have a case of bullets lying around the office? @Pimanrules: A case? I wish. With ammo prices as high as they are I'd love for a case to just magically appear in the office. Dear Ammo Fairies, I would be very thankful if a whole case of ammo would appear. Love, Jason @ Lifehacker @Jason Fitzpatrick: Thanks to the macro lens it looks as if those are actually reloads, I believe I saw some lands and grooves on the very bottom edge of the slugs. @flyingwolf: I haven't gotten into reloading yet, although I'm seriously considering it. I did most of my bulk ammo purchasing several years ago... then I got busy with a new baby, work, etc. and wasn't going to the range as often as I had been. Reloading .22 isn't really an option so I'll just have to suck it up on those prices, but .40 and .45 are definitely worth the initial expense of setting up a reloading bench.
