Tape trick for perfect winged eyeliner Happy Monday to ya….hope y’all had a fabulous weekend!!! A few posts ago, I made reference to something I call “the tape method” and I said that I would do a follow up showing how to do it. Well…it is super easy and I probably just could have easily explained it using my words–but who doesn’t like pictures to go with? This is simply going to show you another way to apply winged liner if you have a difficult time getting a “perfect” wing or if you don’t have steady hands. A few considerations: If you have sensitive skin, don’t put tape on it!
566; Supernatural Collective Nouns. I went to lunch today at a new market-slash-sandwich place that just opened in my neighborhood. It was really good!

Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms. Happy knotting!
A Splendid Assemblage: DIY Simple Summer Bracelet I received an email the other day from a lovely reader asking if I could make a tutorial on a very simple summer bracelet style that does not require a hundred knots or clasps and you can easily stack up. I am not a fan of doing macramé knots in the summer heat so this happens to be exactly what I have had on my wrists all summer :) - waxed cotton cords - crimp beads, tube beads or any beads of your choice

Party Favor: Bath Tea When I had the pleasure of planning my best friend’s bridal shower last year, I was searching for the perfect favor for our guests to go home with. The theme was a bridal tea, full of tasty sandwiches, mini desserts, tea cups and saucers. I thought about various options for the favor, but many seemed a waste, something that would probably get a smile and then unfortunately be thrown away or placed on a shelf never to be thought of again. It's because I think too much: Galactic Manicure I loved how my glittery gradient mani turned out so much that I decided to do a variation on it, using the night sky as my inspiration! Here's how I did it: 1. Prep I grabbed deep navy, silver glitter, and gold glitter polish along with my favorite top coat.

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 Little Tin Bird » Basic Granny Square Pattern As promised, here is my pattern for the Basic Granny Square. I didn’t invent this pattern in the slightest, (obviously) but I’m going to show you step by step how to make the basic granny square. When I started to learn I couldn’t find a pattern that I could understand easily and so I hope to change that by doing one with lots of pictures :-) This is the pattern I used to make the squares for the Granny Alice blanket (above). For this pattern, you will need to know how to chain stitch, and how to make a UK treble (TR) stitch. This is equivalent to the US double (DC) stitch but I will be using the UK terminology for this pattern. If you don’t know how to make a TR stitch, have a look HERE.
