How About Orange

How About Orange
I really have a thing for lamps. I roam thrift stores admiring them— the weirder, the better — and pause on catalog pages with cool fixtures. Today I'm happy to share a guest tutorial on how to make your own industrial-style floor lamp out of pipes. Set this baby in front of your exposed brick wall and sip a craft cocktail while you admire your handiwork. You built a lamp! The how-to is by Matthew Lyons, self-proclaimed handyman and blogger for HomeDaddys.com.

Oh, Fransson! Today is my stop on the blog tour for the lovely and talented Jennifer Sampou's new fabric collection, Shimmer. Shimmer includes nature-inspired prints in beautiful earth tones, all with a little bit of irridescent, sparkling shimmer. Continue reading "Shimmer Fabric Blog Tour" » I really love the 14" center of the Aviatrix Medallion and I think it looks fantastic as a larger block. say YES! to hoboken: DIY: Tinted Mason Jars in Rainbow I’ve been experimenting with tinting mason jars to create a look like those old vintage ones that are difficult to find anymore in second hand stores. I think I’ve finally honed in on the perfect method. Would you like to see how it’s done? Check out the DIY here. Fill them with flowers, or illuminate an outdoor party filling them with battery operated tea lights or a strand of twinkle lights.

Modular felt coaster tutorial Modular pieces that fit together make me really happy, and on a recent Google hunt, I found felt rugs here and here made with interlocking shapes. Very cool. So I tried a pared-down pattern for coasters because I'm way too impatient to fit 847,236,780 pieces together to make a rug. Download the PDF template right here (it makes two coasters.) Print out the pattern and pin it to a piece of felt.

January 15, 2014 Something very beautiful I just watched and wanted to share. It’s a film by André Gidoin & The Makerie Studio. All filmed in camera, the horses on the carousel are spaced to spin in sync with the camera’s frame rate, creating the illusion of motion. Each one is carefully studied to follow the one before it, so that once animated they appear to be galloping.

artsy-crafty babe So yes, I’ve been knitting. You know how it is when the mood strikes. I blame the cold weather. Lovely Spaces – Craft room (Part 2) Hello my lovely readers! This past weekend was so crazy! We lost our power Thursday night – I’m so glad I schedule my draft post – The bad part I spend days without power in our house, when you work in your computer that’s kind of a vital ingredient hehe. This past storm was pretty big and brought a lot of snow and that caused a lot of trees fall down =[ It was my first time in a storm like this and it was pretty surprising to see a lot of street closed, cars stuck and not being able to cook or have heater (the bad part about having electric stove!) So now that you are all updated in my weekend, I want to share some of my favorite Craft room/Office images, all of them collected via Pinterest! [source]

DIY origami-style necklace Here's an origami jewelry experiment that's useful if you're broke, or if your eyeballs enjoy looking at folded paper. (Speaking of crafts for the fiscally challenged, Amy Sedaris' book Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People is hilarious. But I digress.) This pleated paper necklace is made with paper, glue, and inexpensive jewelry parts. I bought this length of chain for $1 and the lobster clasp for 45 cents at a local hobby store. packaging :: update :: Miss B has chosen a winner! Congrats to # 89 - Sara!
