Manualitats i coses de casa
I don’t know what it’s like in your neighborhood, but when I step outside here in Oakland, I sense it right away: Fall is in the air! I’m lucky enough to have a few turning trees on my street, so I don’t miss out entirely on the brilliant autumn colors I remember from growing up in NH. Speaking of brilliant autumn colors, I’m thrilled to share this stunning maple leaf rose bouquet DIY from a fellow Kate — clay, fiber and paper artist Kate Hust . Kate first learned how to make these a few years ago from a retired art teacher in her community, and now they’ve become an annual tradition when fall rolls around. Her instructor taught her to wrap the leaves really tight, so they looked like rose buds, but Kate has modified the technique a bit to suit her own tastes: She likes to find the really big leaves and make them with large open “petals.”
I love this Sharpie tie die DIY from The Art Girl Jackie blog! She did it with her adorable daughter and I think it’s a fun inspiration for this Spring and upcoming music festival season. Use this technique to spruce up your ratty t-shirts or maybe a pair of of cut off shorts. For another idea, check out how to spruce up your clothes with DIY leopard print here!

This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks. Placeholders special enough for the books that are special enough to remain in your culled-out-of-spacial-necessity collection.
we're still recovering around here from the birthday party almost two weeks ago. the balloons are mostly gone but a few are dragging their strings along the floor as they bob around. kind of sad and silly at the same time. so i figured: why not post a few more pics of that day? the pics here were taken with my iphone. i own a nikon d90 and love shooting with it, but most moments of life are spur of the moment and my phone is just more handy. i'm not taking pics to sell anything or promote my "mad photog skilz"... just documenting all the little things that are really the big things when it comes right down to it. i'll specify if any photography is from any other soure but my iphone 4s a little color never hurt anybody - so here goes! icing is like makeup. it covers up all the little flaws - martha stewart i'm not ;) but it was tasty. and moist. most importantly, soph enjoyed her mini-cake that i made to look like the big one.
Favorite Lunch Box Sandwich The other week, a friend was telling me about cookie butter or Biscoff creamy spread and how he used it to make bake sale treats. I had never heard of cookie butter, so I set out looking through the website and learned: • Biscoff Spread is made with Original Lotus Biscoff Cookies. • The main… more Happy Earth Day!

Jun 30 Whiskey Stone Shot Glasses I love both the look and the principle behind this set of whiskey stone shot glasses .
Hi there, it’s Jenny from Hank + Hunt with a fun and super easy diy today! As soon as I thought of making these I got a huge kick out of naming them Party Animals. Hilarious, but if you hear groaning…it’s coming from my house. Regardless of how cheesy the name is, these turn out awesome. Your kid’s favorite animal holding that birthday candle minus those red eyes that are oh so typical for plastic creatures, awesome.

I love Pinterest - like, LOVE LOVE. And when I found this amazing bread recipe , I knew I had to try it. Baking bread reminds me of childhood, when I stood at the table and watched my mom knead bread. Plus, it makes your house smell amazing and it's good to eat! Never one to do things the easy way, I decided to make heart-shaped loaves. Miracle of miracles, it worked on the first try!
