Make an origami cat bookmark

Make an origami cat bookmark
On You Tube I found video instructions for making a cat bookmark designed by Jo Nakashima. So I tried it out. A couple of the steps were tricky, but I managed to prevail! I think this kitty is funny. He looks like he tried to cross the road at the wrong moment.

Les Origami de Senbazuru - L'origami facile About Videoclips musicais: uma nova forma de arte Quando se fala da caixa mágica que mudou o mundo todos pensam na televisão. Mudou o mundo, de facto: alterou o nosso modo de vida, a nossa percepção do que nos rodeia, aproximou as pessoas. Há quem diga que as afastou... Mas o que é curioso e ao mesmo tempo irónico é que, na verdade, durante muito tempo a televisão não trouxe nada de novo. Pensemos bem: filmes, documentários, noticiários, programas de divertimento, etc. tudo isso já existia na rádio, no cinema, no teatro, etc. A televisão tinha imagem mas isso era, digo eu, apenas uma curiosidade... Uma das poucas novidades que a televisão trouxe foi o videoclip musical, um meio de expressão artística plena de potencialidades. Somente a partir dos anos 80' o videoclip se popularizou e disseminou, em grande parte devido à acção da famosa MTv.

5 Timeless Books of Insight on Fear and the Creative Process by Maria Popova From Monet to Tiger Woods, or why creating rituals and breaking routines don’t have to be conflicting notions. “Creativity is like chasing chickens,” Christoph Niemann once said. But sometimes it can feel like being chased by chickens — giant, angry, menacing chickens. Whether you’re a writer, designer, artist or maker of anything in any medium, you know the creative process can be plagued by fear, often so paralyzing it makes it hard to actually create. Despite our best-argued cases for incremental innovation and creativity via hard work, the myth of the genius and the muse perseveres in how we think about great artists. In the ideal — that is to say, real — artist, fears not only continue to exist, they exist side by side with the desires that complement them, perhaps drive them, certainly feed them. Steven Pressfield is a prolific champion of the creative process, with all its trials and tribulations. Are you paralyzed with fear? Donating = Loving Share on Tumblr

Muito Interessante November 8th, 2010 Vários cientistas andaram a investigar e descobrir quais os 10 factores que mais influenciam aquilo que as pessoas consideram bonito ou não. Assim a lista de factores que influenciam a tua real beleza são: basic stitches Stitching or sewing has a history dating back to the prehistoric times. It is believed, with archaeological evidences, that sewing must have come into being since the stone ages, when people had begun to sew to attach pieces of animal skin using needles made of bones, antlers and ivory. They probably must have used threads made of animal parts like veins. As the times progressed and sewing started to become an integral part of life, not only newer methods of sewing styles developed, but many other materials were tried as needles and threads. Although sewing or stitching is commonly associated with clothing and fabrics, it must not be forgotten that this skill is used in many other craft areas like making shoes, bags, sporting goods and all those things associated with attaching pieces of fabric. This tutorial will deal with one of such arts: hand embroidery, which is very much practiced even today in spite of all the invasion of machine-made,‘perfect’ sewn objects. 80 Comments »

T H E T O Y M A K E R Kapanyél - Sünlak a kertben Ma van az Állatok Világnapja, amire napok óta tanultuk a kisebbik csemetével a Sün Balázst, és felmerült a kérdés, miért is nincs nekünk egy sünink. Mármint a kertben. Nálunk érthető a dolog: belvárosi társasház, az utca felől lépcsőznie kellene a téglafallal körülvett kerthez, a falon meg nem talál rést, úgyhogy ide sajnos nem tud bejönni, hiába is akarna. Aki viszont olyan szerencsés, hogy a kerítése gyárilag hézagos, vagy saját maga tette valahol szabaddá az utat, előbb-utóbb bizonyosan „saját” sünre és családjára tehet szert. Főleg, ha nem használ túl sok kemikáliát, mert azok elpusztítják a sünök táplálékait is, így az ilyen portákat inkább elkerüli. Ha kertünkben sűrű bokrok vannak, akkor nem is kell különösebben építkezni, a kis állat szívesen vackolja be magát alájuk. Ha nincs alkalmas búvóhely a kertben, vagy csak szeretünk barkácsolni, készíthetünk magunk is sünlakot (de készen is vehetünk), melyet egy félreeső, esőtől, széltől védett helyre állítsunk fel.

Coffee Filter Flowers and Video Tutorial Hello sweet friends! It has been inexcusably long since I have posted. I know. But I do have legitimate reasoning. The kiddos got sick. The kiddos got ME sick. Been preparing for an upcoming gala next weekend. I have had 101 appointments and access to blog land. We actually have been going through a lot of personal stuff with our oldest daughter. But GOOD NEWS...I am going to be sharing all the elements of this DIY Tablescape I have been working on. Do you remember last year's table? So here we go with the first part of Gala Tablescape 2012... My idea was to have a bunch of flowers...I mean A LOT...all over my table. I think I am the last person to get on the coffee filter flower train. And it's easy! Everyone chic scream for easy! First I dyed them. I experimented with tea, food coloring, washable markers, and watered down acrylic paint. The soft colors of these are so lovely. Here they are folded twice into cones and cut with a scalloped edge all ready to make the flowers. P.S.
