How to Create a Wine Cork Letter We just added my favorite font, American Typewriter, to our font options so I was excited to create a project with it. Since our wine cork K is one our most popular photos I thought the two would make a great pair. I’ve seen several renditions of this project floating around Pinterest and decided I like the ones that have mainly the purple end of the cork facing forward. Don’t be shy about the size of the letter, go big! Smaller letters end up being overwhelmed by the corks, plus bigger letters leave more room to fit the corks naturally. And please, whatever you do, don’t cut the corks to make them fit.

I’ve been busily sewing away these teeny tiny zipper pouches for stocking stuffers and for handy gifts for hubby to give to some of his colleagues. They work in the sun all day, in and out of the water working as diving instructors and these little pouches are ideal. They can hang them off their bag and have easy access to their lip balm, sun block and lunch money while keeping the rest of the stuff in their bag dry.

You'll need - Fabric - your choice of colors and prints. The amount you need depends on the size of the styrofoam balls you use and how thick you place the fabric.

Make a scrying mirror. Now here's a very odd but simple project that doesn't involve electronics at all, but has a very delicious element of darkness to it in more ways than one. It's a scrying mirror. Basically a black mirror used to focus (or defocus) the mind to perceive images often perceived as spiritual. Have you ever laid in a dark room and gradually seen random images like people or portals into other places? Not everyone has this experience and it may be linked to forms of autism where the dream world leaks into waking vision.
