DIY étoiles flocons de neige Wars With winter upon us, we thought it would be fun to share a fun project of ours with you: snowflake designs with a Star Wars twist. We created the original set of designs in 2010 and now have the largest collection of designs and templates on the internet. With The Force Awakens opening in December, the latest installment of the Star Wars film series inspired us to create new designs such as the BB-8 and Kylo Ren. We had so much fun in fact that there are 33 designs altogether.
Pansy and Dahlia Fabric Flower Tutorial Photography by James Ransom for Martha Stewart Living I’m so excited to share this fabric flower tutorial from Martha Stewart Living with you. Such beauties! Tate's Kitchen: book page markers Thank you Pinterest.....again.....These came to life because a friend of mine sent me a photo saying she needed a few, so here they are! Book page markers. Super cute.Relatively simple to assemble once I figured out how I wanted to do them. Let me say btw...I never did find an actual tutorial that I liked and thought was easy to understand so I had to go figure it out for myself.And, being of the old-fashioned group of people that still loves to actually hold a book in their hands, these are pretty handy.Here's how to do this:Cut some squares of fun paper. I did 4x4 and a couple 5x5 - whatever size you choose should work fine - just make sure they are perfectly square.
Carambola Flowers by Carmen Sprung If you’ve been following me on Flickr for a while, you’ve probably seen this picture of Carambola Flowers before – I folded them ages ago! But since my Pro account is going to expire in a few days time (and I don’t feel like upgrading it again), a lot of my old photos won’t be displayed anymore. So I decided it would be a good idea to share the very best of them on my blog! These absolutely beautiful origami flowers were designed by Carmen Sprung and I just love them!

Reader Question: How Do You Cut Your Snowflakes? You sometimes have questions. I know I do. When this happens and you think I might be of some service, do as Bridgitt did and shoot me an email. Origami Christmas Tree And finally I managed to post this origami tree tutorial...for those who follow me on instagram, you know I've made these last week. So if you wanna know how to make this.... a little cozy goes a long way (and a hand warmer DIY) - rae ann kelly i’m not a super mom. in fact, i’m pretty sure it’s an oxymoron or the opposite of a double negative, or something that cancels itself out. most days i’m just doing what has to be done, making sure my babes have what they need and praying that everything else falls into place. but there is one other thing i take very seriously…. that my kids feel loved. everyday. it would be easy for this task to become overwhelming, but luckily my kids have taught me that it’s the little things that matter. just one act of love goes a looooong way.
