Surprise the Ones You Love (14 pics)
Dec 24/11 Surprise the Ones You Love (14 pics) Here are instructions for a very special gift for the people you love. Buy a Kinder Surprise. Carefully unwrap it, but be careful to not damage the package. Use a knife to cut the Kinder chocolate egg in half. Take the toy out. Write your special message or use other surprise gift. Roll up your message. Close the container. Pour boiling hot water over a sharp kitchen knife. Use the hot knife to melt the edge of the chocolate egg’s halves. Quickly place the container inside the two halves. Quickly seal the two halves while the edges are still soft and melted. Here comes the most difficult part. Lastly give the gift to your second half and say something like, “I bought bread and some sweets for you.”

Is She the One for You? — Men Ed, my buddy, got divorced because of golf, baked potatoes, and blackflies. See, Ed liked to play golf, which was no big deal—until he and his wife, Amy, started having money problems and she'd remind him that he'd blown $500 a month "whacking a little ball around." Ed also was a slow eater, while Amy tended to gobble her dinner down rather quickly. By the time he'd buttered his baked potato, his wife had finished her meal. Which was no big dea—except that it reminded them daily of how different they really were. DIY Hand Stitching, part 1 One of my favorite crafts is hand stitching-- it's fun, addictive, expressive and relaxing :) Over the next few weeks, I'm going to share easy ways to make your own patterns for hand stitching along with some tips and ideas :) These are some samples of my past projects-- I like to draw patterns freehand and use my handwriting. However, sometimes I adapt clipart type images to make a more complicated pattern, like the sewing machine or I just stitch the outline of an image I love, like the Goonies "Hey You Guys" silhouette :) I use a Back Stitch for all my hand stitching because it's very versatile and I like the look but you can use any combination of stitches for your projects... there's lots of fun ones!

Seed Paper Tutorial I first heard of seed paper–or hand made paper that has real flower seeds embedded in the pulp itself and is actually plantable–about a year ago while browsing through a stationary catalog. It was the coolest idea I’d ever seen–and so incredibly spring-y! Well, who knew that you could make this funky stuff all by yourself? And dang we had a good time!
