You Built What?!: A Compact Mechanical Crossbow With the Precision of a Laser Last October, after hurting his knee playing hockey, Patrick Priebe was holed up in his apartment near Cologne, Germany, with nothing to do. He was sitting at his computer, staring at his keyboard, when the "Y" key caught his eye. Priebe didn't see a letter. To him, it looked like a crossbow. Immediately he knew what his next project would be. For years, the German lab technician had built laser weapons, including a working Iron Man–style palm-fired blue-diode laser. Next he gathered more aluminum, copper, and brass sheeting. To fire, he pulls back the wire, hooks it around a brass block, and places an arrow in the groove. Priebe can use the crossbow to pierce soda cans, smash lightbulbs, and tag apples. Go on to the next page for three more DIY projectile launchers.

What You’ll Need: beeswax or paraffin bricks or old candlesteacupswicks with tabs, sized for your moldscandle-making or candy thermometerwax colorants (crayons work great!) Preparing Your Wax Place beeswax and/or paraffin bricks in a double boiler or in one pot that is inside another filled with water over the stove. Make Your Candle Cut the wicking to the cup’s height plus 2 inches.
my blog is crafty, thrifty, family, yummy & a little Rambley: Felted Bar Soap Marriage is all about compromise. David's family keeps the butter on the counter. My family keeps the butter in the fridge. Compromise: we keep the butter on the counter, covered, and for short amounts of time I like liquid soap for the shower. David likes bar soap for the shower. (I think it gets gross when it makes a pile of goo on the shower edge) Compromise: I made felted soap Here's what you'll need: *wool batting *soap *hot water You can look up a ton of youtube videos on how to do this if you please. 1. 2. 3. We had lots of fun just hanging out and rubbing soap together. I'm going to miss you so much Lynette.

A Tutorial: Fabulous Ric Rac Flowers & Matilda Jane Clothing Rocks Let me start out with a warning or sorry of some sort. The warning is because I have never done a Tutorial before, so I hope this is helpful and easy to follow. The sorry is for how horrible my nails look. I promise I did them after looking through these pics. WOW! I thought I would start off with a Flower, I too, just learned how to make. Material: Time-Roughly 20 minutes about 28 inches of Ric Rac ( This will make a flower about 2 inches in diameter) Suggestion: The thicker the Ric Rac the better Felt (Any Color) One sheet will be fine depending on how many flowers you want to make. Optional: Hair Clips, leaves or buttons Step One: Take the two pieces and hot glue them together. Note: You want to glue them together as if they are a mirror of one another. Step two: Lock in each curve of the first piece with the second. Say to yourself “over,under,over, under”. *If your piece does not look like this, then you most likely glued the two pieces going the wrong direction. Pretty right? Cute right?
