Comment réaliser une trousse ou un sac en magazines? 5 Great Shampoo Substitutes *This post was updated on May 20, 2013 to include apple cider vinegar* Many naturals like the “no shampoo” or “no poo” approach to hair care (although we should note that shampoo is not inherently bad, and there are quite a few that do a great job of cleansing without stripping), and have to decide which cleansing alternative is best for them. We’ve compiled a list of 5 shampoo substitutes that are effective and reasonably priced. 1. Apple cider vinegar (or ACV) is a perfect cleanser, gently lifting dirt and residue off the hair and scalp while also laying down the cuticle for a smooth finish. 2. This mud wash is known for cleansing hair without leaving the “squeaky” feeling, and for increasing the ease of detangling and condition post-wash. 3. A detoxifier that can be used on hair, skin and internally (to release body toxins), bentonite clay is a highly effective cleanser. 4. 5. Yes folks, you heard it right, beer. 6. Ladies, do you do the “no poo” method?
Lucky Wishing Stars Tutorial You’ve probably seen these little puffy origami stars before. They are really quick to make, and you don’t need any special materials to make them. You can buy lucky star pre-cut strips from origami stores, but you can just as easily make your own from medium weight coloured paper, e.g. scrapbooking paper, or even strips cut from magazine pages – as the strips are so narrow, the original text or image won’t be obvious in the finished star. Anti-clockwise from top left: pre-cut strips, paper cutter, scrapbook paper, magazine page. Now on to the tutorial! To give you an idea of size, I’ve made stars in 3 different sizes to show you: blue stars (from pre-cut strips): 35cm x 1.25cmpink stars (from a magazine page): 30cm x 1cmgreen stars (scrapbook paper): 15cm x 0.6cm The finished star will be approx 1.5 x the width of your strip, so pick an appropriate size for the size of star you’d like to end up with. For the rest of this tutorial, I will be using a paper strip cut from a magazine page.
The Elements of Art Olive Trees with Yellow Sky and Sun by Vincent VanGogh While exploring one of my favorite Art websites, About.com:Art History, I came across a great explanation of the “Elements of Art”. The author uses the analogy of the Elements of Art being like the “building blocks” that artists use to create their artwork. Similar to how different atoms combine to form other things (ex. hydrogen and oxygen combine to form H2O), the artist combines some or all of the Elements of Art (line, shape, form, space, texture, value, color) to create his painting, drawing, sculpture, etc. Teaching your students about the Elements of Art will give you a common vocabulary with which to talk about Art, whether it be student work or the work of a master from long ago. An Elements of Art “scavenger hunt” using the work of a famous artist is a fun way to test and reinforce your students’ understanding while exposing them to great works of Art.
Make your own paperback wallet! I wanted to share my tutorial for making wallets out of old paperback books (or any paper media, really.) This basic wallet was not my idea... the original link does not work (but here it is anyway.) The original design was flawed, and the wallets ripped the first time you opened them. I changed the design, and made them much, much stronger. (And let me apologize in advance for the book cover I used in the tutorial. Enjoy!

Weave A Newspaper Basket Last night's project, a basket made from old newspaper. After seeing this post at CraftStylish, I was inspired to try one. Maybe I'll keep books and remote controls in it. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Where Do I Begin? This Blog Saturday, June 18, 2011 Where Do I Begin? When faced with a writing project, I always have a tough time actually getting started. I realize that this is a very common problem among people who write. I also know that once I finally get started I end up having more to say than I thought I would. As you move into the classrooms you notice our belief in the workshop model, building strong relationships through developing a community of learners and actively engaging students in creating meaning and deeper understandings. We encourage students to move out of their comfort zone, challenge themselves, take risks and reflect on what they are learning about themselves as learners. In all of my years of teaching (this will be my 18th year), I have never felt like my personal philosophy matched the philosophy of the school I taught at so well.
