Sixty Years Of Memories For my dad's 60th birthday last week, I wanted to do something really fun. My dad and I talk a lot about the past---nostalgia runs in our blood, I think---and we both love to reminisce. Inspired by Jordan Ferney's Postcard Birthday Poster, I started batting around an idea: what if I could get everyone from my dad's past to contribute a memory they had of him? What if I had all those people send their memories to me, and then I put each one into an envelope---sixty total, of course---and had him open them, one by one, on his birthday? That would be a lot of memories, right? So I wrote an email. Hello everyone! If you're receiving this email, you probably know that our dad, Patrick Burns, is turning 60 next month (much as he would hate us to be reminding everyone, I'm sure.) And this is where you come in! If you have a spare moment in the next few days, we would be so grateful if you'd jot down a favorite memory you have of our dad and put it in the post. Thank you so much again.

DIY Stamps I've always wanted to make my own rubber stamps. I even went so far as to buy a kit several years ago, complete with a black light and goo. It didn't work for me. I've done some primitive printing using meat trays and wondered if I could use my punches on the styrofoam. I happened to have a piece of acrylic so I taped the butterfly to it with double stick tape. Now came the fun part. This might even make a nice coloring book type of activity. I also punched out my favorite scalloped circle then debossed it with a table knife. Perfect for personalizing holiday wrapping paper.

Butterfly Mobile I was inspired by this post about paper butterflies on craftster. The photo on the left is of my mobile hanging on the wall and the one on the right is the mobile hanging from the ceiling. I made each butterfly two-sided with contrasting fabrics. I think it would be sweet in a child’s room or you could use more adult fabrics and hang it in celebration of spring. A smaller version of this butterfly could also be used as an embellishment or could be made as a garland. Supplies for Three Butterflies: Fabric (1/4 yards or remnants of six different fabrics)Interfacing, optional (1/2 yard)ThreadMonofilament (fishing line)Sewing needle with large eye Step 1: Cut fabrics and interfacing according to template: butterfly.pdf (48KB) Step 2: Sew fabrics right sides together with interfacing on top (as shown below). Step 3: Cut the full length of monofilament (about 4′) and thread through the needle. All done!

The Most Photogenic Dog on the Internet The 17-year-old photographer Jessica Trinh shot her dog Chuppy. This lovely golden retriever is very likable.In addition to great photography, I think it is very harmonious relationship of Jessica and Chuppy, otherwise it is very difficult to shoot such a warm photo. Source ,Source Happy Valentines Day! This year I made this adorable gift for my boyfriend. On a deck of cards, I thought of 52 reasons why I love him soo much (I could have easily come up with 1000 <3) I typed them out and cut them up. Some cards I glued the white paper on and cut out patterned hearts. The other cards I backed the white paper with the same patterned paper and glued them on.

DIY: Starburst Clock - LA | Freckled Nest | LAfromFN I love clocks and especially love clocks with personality! Starburst Style clocks appeal to me in many ways but they're usually a little too retro or gold for my style-- so I was excited to try making a new version of the Starburst :) I'd love to see you do the same using the tutorial below! These clocks were my inspiration! [sources 1 & 2] a big handful of wood coffee stir sticks (7" long) all-purpose white gluesharp scissorsworking clock with a flat face To skip drilling & wiring a clock from scratch, I used a flat pre-made clock with no dimension-- this cappuccino masterpiece was $10 at Walmart. You'll find long wooden stir sticks at grocery stores, restaurant supply stores or ask your local coffee shop if you can buy some from them. Step 1/ So that your sticks fit well side by side on the clock surface, you will need to cut a long and sharp point on one end of each stick. Continue adding glue in 'slices', positioning sticks along the way until you reach your starting point.

29 Dates To Go On With Your Best Friend 1. Go to an amusement park together and try all of the rides you’re normally too scared to go on. (Make sure to eat the cotton candy and sno cones after you spin around in circles for hours.) 2. Stay up all night when it’s nice out and drink wine under the stars, talking about all the things you’re usually too embarrassed or afraid to admit. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. Little Paper Houses You may remember my post for Living Locurto, the Mother’s Day message box project below. I’ve had that on my mind as Mother’s day approaches and wanted to engineer another type of box to share, but in a different style. Little paper houses. Engineering cardstock takes me back to my good ol’days as a package designer and I wish I had more time to create them for crafting. As I worked on these, I must have had 5o completely different ideas come to mind of how to use these houses for various things, such as gifts, decorations, favors, etc. But since I don’t have the benefit of all that time on my hands, I’ll share 3 and give ideas for many more. To create your own custom paper house, use the templates below. I created templates also for the individual panels, you can print to card stock, cut out the panel windows and place over designs, patterns, or photographs to trace each panel shape for attaching to pre-printed houses. Fold along all perforation lines.
