Small Footprint, Big Yield: Create an Easy Micro Organic Urban Garden Today! April 28, 2009 by Robin Plaskoff Horton There are two things urban gardeners are short on: space and time. The Urban Garden, brainchild of Bill Arquitt, resolves both of these issues, making it efficient and simple to plant a vegetable garden with up to 55 plants in a 3-foot deep by 4-foot wide footprint. The contained six level tiered system is nearly maintenance-free, eliminating heavy weeding, and its northwestern cedar construction renders it naturally bug repellent.

Put Up Your Dukes: braided scarf tutorial i have a tutorial that is forty thrillionty times easier and better than my previous (ahem, first ever...give me some grace!) tutorial. it is accessible to infinitely more people (you dont have to have a baby, OR a dress to start out with). and it is really simple. there are only 4 lines of stitching total. oh, did i mention it's mega cute and chic also: 5 weeks ago i saw this scarf on pinterest. it was pinned by a VERY popular pinner that i follow under her DIY board. i knew i had to make one for myself. but when i followed this "DIY" link, it actually led to a german store where the scarf was 35 euros ($60 shipped!). no DIY tutorial = no thanks and bum out!

Creative Kismet » Blog Archive » little guiding stars Since the new year has started I’ve been trying to think of ways to be more kind to my self. Especially when that nasty gremlins try to creep in and stump me. I remembered this origami star video on You Tube and had to get them involved in my plan. I thought it would be fun to make a whole bunch with kind words and “you are….” phrases inside. small is cool if you choose to live on your own as a young person (and i say this assuming that you don’t earn major bucks or perhaps you live in an expensive city – or both) you will probably be faced with the reality of renting a studio apartment. unless you’re an investment banker, or you won the lotto, or your granddad left you a sweet inner city pad the size of an ark that he bought back in 1950 for R500, or you’ve found some 3 bedroom palace with wooden floors and a working fireplace that’s being rented out for tuppence. if you’re one of those people, please don’t pity me. for i might be jumping on the studio flat bandwagon one of these days, and of course in lieu of that, the first thing i consider is HOW TO DECORATE. zach motl lives in a 178 ft² studio apartment in brooklyn. that’s 16m² folks… he’s an interior decorator, which explains why his flat looks the way it does. “the more stuff you put in a room, the bigger it seems” this NYC couple‘s apartment is only 200 ft² (18 m²!!!)

Mason Jar Key Hook Hey guys! Hope you all had a great Wednesday I have a fun project to share today! I started with a 1×8 board from Lowe’s that I cut to about 2′ long.

So for now… Here is my board after it is painted and ready to go. diy week {vinyl chalkboard UPDATE: The giveaway is now closed, Kaylene has the last counting comment. I know chalkboards are a bit of a craze right now, but I couldn’t help myself with this.
