Hanging Chains Headband DIY While browsing Topshop last week, I came across this fun hanging chains headband and thought with Coachella right around the corner, an easy DIY for something similar would be fun. I used an old plastic zig zag stretchy comb headband I’ve had for years because it was the most logical choice to hang chains from but you can use an elastic band in a similar way. The chains disappear a little in my blonde hair but they would stand out really pretty agains brunette locks {it would also look great on a shorter cut as well}. If you’re super crafty, add a feather or bead/charm to the bottom of a few chains.

Geometric Sculpture of George W. Hart, mathematical sculptor George W. Hart As a sculptor of constructive geometric forms, my work deals with patterns and relationships derived from classical ideals of balance and symmetry. Mathematical yet organic, these abstract forms invite the viewer to partake of the geometric aesthetic. I use a variety of media, including paper, wood, plastic, metal, and assemblages of common household objects.

How To: Make a Homemade Snow Globe As Kate so delicately alluded to earlier this week, I am somewhat of a holiday junkie. And Christmas is the holiday of all holidays for me. I decorated a week before Thanksgiving; yep, I’m one of those people. One of my most favorite holiday traditions as a child was our little family advent calendar and now that my kids are old enough to enjoy some fun and creative activities, I’ve filled up our little numbered stockings with slips of paper instead of candy. Well, slips of paper intermingled with candy.

How to Turn Old Magazines into a Bookshelf The magazines you’ve read through can be turned into extra storage space for the home in a few easy steps.

Sean Miller's award-winning design.

...love Maegan: * Leather Lanyard Bracelet Maeg-it Yourself * Fashion+Home+Lifestyle Blog If you went to Summer Camp as a kid, you’ll totally remember making lanyard keychains with that brightly colored plastic lace {I had tons of them!} …so I thought, why not do it with leather lace? And I did. And I love them! Pair them with stacks of other bangles and bracelets to add a little texture! {p.s. you can also make this into a necklace, headband or belt as well} Black or White: What Color Works Best for the Background of a Screen? Have you noticed that many business intelligence (BI) software companies have introduced black screens as the standard for mobile devices? Is this because mobile devices work better with black screens? If you look for the research, as I have, it isn’t likely that you’ll find any. Just as when dashboards were new and someone came up with the bright idea of using graphs that looked like speedometers and fuel gauges on cars and everyone else followed suit, the practice of black screens on mobile devices has been adopted for the same reason: someone did it and others followed. Few software vendors in the BI space do research or even read relevant research by others.
