Mi dulce tentación Spaghetti Sauce Jar Moroccan Lanterns I don't know about you guys, but from where I'm sitting (Minnesota) the snow is getting really old. Like not even pretty any more. Sort of a cadaver/concrete color. I need some summer, some heat, some beer. Like an Anthony Bourdain special where it's late at night and everybody's outside and sweaty and eating some sort of rolled up meat chopped cilantro spicy pepper street food from a vendor's cart and drinking cold beer. So I got some spaghetti sauce jars. And added gold dimensional paint. Or you can make little dots, which looks sort like weird little nails. And then poured some glass paint into the bottom of the jar. Here's my color inspiration. And so now I can fantasize about summer nights, about putting these lanterns on my white metal table on the deck, Jon can barbecue, the kids can chase fireflies, aaaaahhhhh.

Book Tree Tutorial I hit the books this week - making a few projects that have been on my "to do" list, made out of books! The first project was a book tree. I was a little discouraged to start this project as I knew it involved paper folding. I have not been able to paper fold much of anything successfully. Paper airplanes - no success with that one yet; Origami - I need a lot of assistance; Tea folding - ha, ha, ha, I won't comment on that one. First of all, I read a tutorial on how to make a book tree. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Once you have finished the thirty pages - you have one tree half. I have pinned a book tree that was displayed on pretty candle holders. Thanks for stopping by! Lavender marshmallows It seemed like a good idea – something delicate, almost ethereal. But it did not turn out as I expected... Have you tried lavender marshmallows? I remember seeing a photo on a magazine, months ago, but there was no recipe – it was an ad from a bakery or something. I decided to use a vanilla marshmallow recipe from DH mag #36 adding the dried lavender instead of vanilla extract. The marshmallow was actually quite good – delicious and fluffy. Lavender marshmallows adapted from Donna Hay magazine 4 tablespoons powdered gelatin 1 cup (240ml) warm water 660g caster sugar 1 1/3 cups glucose syrup 2/3 cup water, extra 3 tablespoons dried edible lavender* 200g confectioners’ sugar, sifted 35g (about 3 tablespoons) corn starch Place the gelatin and warm water in the bowl of an electric mixer, stir well to combine and set aside. Makes 25 - I halved the recipe above, used a 20cm (8in) square pan and got 36 smaller marshmallows

The Dating Divas | Strengthening Marriages, One Date At A Time ASTORIA — я.ру Вопрос окрашивания плотно засел у меня в голове и не давал покоя. Хотелось мягких, плавных переходов от тёмного к светлому , а главное чтобы быстро. В руки попали чернила для струйного принтера, но о них позже. Бумагу выбирайте поплотнее. Итак займёмся мокрым делом. Бумага белая плотностью 137гр. Определить центр сделав отверстие шилом, надрезать лепестки. Намочить тряпку, отжать не слишком сильно, но и чтобы с неё не текло. Берём строительный валик для обоев и прокатываем с нажимом. Будем брать по одной детали, остальные останутся между слоями ткани, чтобы не подсохли. Ещё приготовим влажную тряпку - руки вытирать и сухую для удаления лишней влаги. Начну с штемпельных подушечек. Ёмкость с небольшим количеством воды, прозрачный пластик от упаковки, согнутый пополам. Влажную деталь сложить вдвое, а затем гармошкой. Окрасить край детали. Зажать в пластик, излишки воды удалить.Распределить краску нажимами. Повторить окрашивание края, чтобы сделать его по ярче. Скрутить восьмёркой.

A - Z of Folded Cards I've decided to put together a list of different card folding techniques, and then slowly work through the list to produce instructions and examples on how to go about making each card. I've come up with a pretty good list of cards so far, but I need your help in finishing it off. If you can think of other types of folds that aren't mentioned below, please let me know and I'll add them.

Free Digital Stamps Beccy's Place At my card club recently we did a shoe box swap where we brought along card kits we had put together for the other members at our table. The idea was to pass the kits around so that everyone made a card from each person at the table, resulting in a nice little stash by the end of the day. I decided to make this double gatefold card using punches, butterflies and patterned papers. Requirements:A4 cardstock base (8 1/4" x 11 3/4")Patterned paper 8" x 3 3/4"Two strips of green patterned paper 8" x 2"Small offcut of white cardstockVine punch (I used a Martha Stewart punch)Lattice border punch (I used a Martha Stewart border punch)Small flower punch (I used an EK success punch)Self adhesive pearls (I used Kaisercraft pearls)Paper butterflies (I used Collections Elements Creative Butterflies)Sentiment stamp (I used Stamping Up Sincere Salutations)Score board and score toolFoam matInk padDouble sided tapeSmall foam dotsWet glue (I used Glossy Accents)Glue pen (I used Zig Squeeze and Roll) 1.
