Mason Jar Monday | Weeping Cherries This amazing idea for housing kitchen herbs comes to us from Better Homes and Gardens. I thought it appropriate to share this Mason Jar Monday because it is not only a great idea for mason jars, it is also a great way to keep an herb garden during the coming cold months. From the BHG website, “Vintage mason jars are the ideal containers for a kitchen herbarium. Almost any herb can be started from seed in a mason jar. One reader suggests that these potted plants would make excellent Christmas gifts with a festive ribbon tied around the neck of the jar. Like this: Like Loading...

Human Rights Maps This page contains links to the different human rights maps which I publish on this blog, now and again. These maps form part of one of my main efforts here: a data and statistical approach to human rights issues. More on this here. The maps here are usually world maps or maps for certain continents or countries. Of course they all contain information on particular countries, but if you want to select the blogposts for one particular country only, you may want to do a search instead.

Fun with Foam Printing - Easy Tutorial I loved this idea because not only can you recycle these horrid polystyrene containers, but the process is really simple. You could even use tracing paper and trace your design so you don't even need to be able to draw. You could make a whole series of cards like this or just a colorful print to hang on your wall and cheer up the place. Materials needed: Foam or polystyrene container pencil paint or ink small roller 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Happy printing!

She was making these super cute envelopes out of scrapbook paper and I really wanted to make some! So I came home and made some! They are so so SO simple and add a personal touch to your envelopes. You will need: An old magazine, scissors, an envelope, a glue stick and a Sharpie. Tear out some magazine pages that you like. Carefully pull the envelope apart. Trace the envelope on a magazine page. Cut the envelope shape out. Turn the envelope over as well as the magazine cut-out. Unfold everything and separate the magazine cut-out from the envelope. Glue the bottom flap down to the two side flaps. And you've made your own envelope! The great thing about making these envelopes our of magazine pages is that the envelopes have a character all of their own.
