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.

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.

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.

Make a DIY Bent Plywood Bicycle » Man Made DIY « Keywords: wood, bike, bent, bicycle Boy, do I love me some molded plywood. It gives my Eames lounge-ish chair its perfect shape, and is quite functional in my walnut magazine end table and this laptop riser I hacked from an IKEA stool. And, as some industrious design students figured out, you can create a bike frame at home by learning to laminate and mold your own plywood elements. After seeing this bike on a bicycle design blog I was inspired to build my own. Also I had some left over epoxy and fiberglass from a kayak I built and was just itching to find a project I could use it on (or maybe I was just itchy from all the fiberglass). The part of the design I liked was that the top and bottom parts of the frame are like leaf springs separated by the seat tube. Bent Plywood Bicycle [Instructables]
