Make your own jellyfish in a bottle. « BhoomPlay ~ Note for Thai fans ~ เป็นโพสเก่าที่มีแฟนบล๊อกจากต่างประเทศขอมาให้เขียนเป็นภาษาอังกฤษนะคะส่วนแฟนบล็อกที่ยังไม่เคยอ่านเรื่องนี้เลย ฉบับภาษาไทยดูที่นี่ค่ะ The other day, while I was thinking to get something to put in the water bottle for Bhoom to shake for fun. I saw a plastic grocery bag next to me and then this idea popped up. I think.. well, give it a try. With some trials and errors, my little jellyfish comes alive just like I thought it would be. : ) When daddy and son first saw it, they’re surprised with their jaws wide open. Then, I asked my hubby to take pictures for this DIY Jellyfish in a bottle.

Pumpkin-Sugar Body Scrub Years ago when I managed a day spa, one of my favorite facials included a Pumpkin Enzyme Peel. That Pumpkin mask was so magically transforming that it inspired me to try working with at-home pumpkin treatments. Raw pumpkin has natural enzymes that eat away layers of dead skin cells and rejuvenate skin texture. In my kitchen I don’t have a whole lot of raw pumpkin on hand but I sure do have the canned stuff. Paper Flowers – Anyone Can Do That Japanese Kusudama, this tutorial is featured on Craftuts Anyone can do that, I assure you. The proof: I can, just take a quick look at my result below.

DIY home decor Ever since I moved to New York, one of my favorite things to do is create things for our apartment. I love adding dramatic things that change the whole vibe of the room-- and nothing is more dramatic than a chandelier. A couple months back we moved from a teeny tiny apartment around the corner to the one we're in now. Since I think we'll be in this apartment for a couple years, it's been SO fun to be more aggressive with the decorating. For my bedroom, I really wanted to find a chandelier. :) Here's my new bedroom in the apartment.

gold leaf rocks i’ve always had a soft spot for rock art. there’s something about it that reminds of of summer camp west virginia and drawing with paint on river rocks. so when kate did a linocut stamp project with rocks the other week i started looking around for great rock-related projects. one of the projects i loved came from claire chauvin, a photography teacher in texas. her gold leaf river rock project is elevates rock-art to a whole new level and sure beats the painted rocks i made when i was younger. this would be such a fun way to personalize a tabletop, give a quirky gift to a friend (monogrammed?), or just spend an afternoon making something pretty for your home. CLICK HERE for the full project instructions. [ps: emergency wedding project help-- does anyone know a place in manhattan where i can buy fabric for an ink jet printer?

DIY collapsible cardboard playhouse Turn a cardboard box into hours of entertainment for your little ones with this DIY collapsible playhouse. This cardboard playhouse was created, especially with small spaces in mind, because when the kids tire of it, the house collapses down flat for easy storage. Cardboard boxes are a hot commodity in our home -- even my 8-month-old appreciates a good drum fest with empty cereal boxes. Pretty much the perfect toy, boxes are free, plentiful (if you eat the way my boys do, that is) and provide the creative possibilities that can be a great exercise for a child's imagination. My kids especially love making forts out of boxes, and it seems that for them, the smaller and cozier the better. While intended for my youngest, this easy-to-construct cardboard playhouse continues to entertain my older boys.

Drink Can Tinwork Tinwork Embossed tinwork is sometimes used to decorate rustic style photo or mirror frames, or just to make decorative items such as Christmas tree decorations. The metal used is usually thicker (tinplate) and is normally worked with hammered tools - I wanted to try to get a similar effect, but with a bit less effort. 100 Ways to Repurpose Everything (Happy Earth Day!)

DIY Fire & Ice Lanterns The old becomes new: A new variation on the outdoor lantern. We have had an unusually warm winter in Michigan this year, and while the temps have been nice, I have had to hold off on this project idea until we got a cold snap.
