Blog de critique: Coup de coeur DIY de la semaine #1 Une nouvelle rubrique arrive sur le blog, il s'agit des "Coups de cœur DIY de la semaine". DIY, si vous ne connaissez pas c’est l’abréviation de Do-It-Yourself en anglais, que l’on pourrait traduire par « fais le par toi même ». Chaque semaine, j'essayerai de vous présenter des DIY sympas et faciles trouvés sur le web, avec le lien du site d'origine où vous y trouverez toutes les indications si vous souhaitez vous lancer. Voici donc les cinq DIY de cette semaine : # Bijoux Sur le blog Les nœuds de Justine vous trouverez ce super tuto pour réaliser une collier inspiré des colliers IRM Design . # Décoration Un abat-jour en tissu ça a tendance à jaunir et ça devient vite moche, mais quelle a été la bonne idée du blog Minigougue de réaliser ce DIY pour customiser cet objet parfois un peu ringard. # Couture Pour donner un petit rock à un teeshirt/sweet/gilet basic, le blog Le Heaume de la Mort a réalisé ce DIY qui paraît plutôt simple à faire. # Cuisine # Papeterie

A Year of “going out” by Staying in! A few ideas on Pinterest led me to make Matt a little homemade Christmas gift. Due to our CRAZY schedules, I thought I needed to do something to make “date nights” I priority. But, getting a sitter AND spending money on a fun night out gets SUPER expensive, SUPER fast. So, take a look at what I made… Each page has a sealed envelope that has a fun “date” for us. Most of the things are practically free and are fun things we can do once the boys go to bed. Hair Tutorial: braided 'do I know I said I would post this hair tutorial yesterday, but obviously I'm a no good liar because today is not yesterday, it's today. This hairstyle is basically the same thing as milkmaid braids, only modified to up the volume and lessen the big part in the back. Pigtails or regular milkmaid braids make me look like I'm balding, as I have a wicked scar in the back of my head. I would recommend doing this in a mirror and checking the back to make sure it's all neat and tidy as you go, because I did not and it's a little (or a lot) messy in the back. What you need: dry shampoo or volumizing product (like the Sachajuan volume powder I often use) bobby pins brush If your hair needs added texture, you can use a dry shampoo. Pin the newly teased section (make sure the top layer is smooth, to cover the mess) with a couple (or more, if you need them) of bobby pins. You should now have what is known as the Snookie. Divide the lower section into two parts and braid.

Pretty Side French Braid low Updo Hair Tutorial Fashion I wore a more relaxed version of this hair style in an outfit post in June of 2009 but for reasons unbeknownst to me, I never did a tutorial for it.

Day #2 of Bird-Day Week: Angry Birds Can Toss Game I have thrown quite a few parties, but most of them have been for little girls. This week our party will be for boys...lots and lots of little boys. Very active little boys. I need activities. Lots of activities. Not coloring and art projects like I do for my daughters parties...I need lots of hands I think these turned out really cute! I started spray painting the cans, which gave a nice smooth finish, but the color just wasn't right. These paints are awesome. I painted a layer of Spring Pasture over the spray paint. I placed the pattern on the can and drew a dotted line around the edges for my guidelines. I took some of the Spring Pasture green and mixed it with some white I had. Next I painted the white portions of my outline. Next I painted the red and black parts of the pig. You can see how close the can looks to the original picture. I will coat these tomorrow with a clear sealer. I found these small, red playground balls at Party City.

Vintage Marquee DIY This series of Movie Night Posts is sponsored by Skinny Cow. When we were brainstorming ideas for movie night decorations we kept coming back to vintage marquees and movies signs. So we put together this DIY using foam core and poster board. This would be awesome in a driveway or on the front of a house telling people where the movie night is. My friend Brooke told me about these strands of super cheap globe lights from Target, which makes the whole project really affordable. While the materials aren’t too expensive this took us a whole afternoon to make. Complete instructions and dowload are after the jump. Materials Needed: 1/8″ Foamcore, Box Cutter and Exacto, Poster Board, Free Printable template (download here), scotch tape, packing tape, ruler, string of lights (take the box apart for the circle template), spray paint. Step 1: Download the free template It has the word “MOVIE” and an arrow. by Jordan Ferney and Alexis Birkmeyer.
