DIY, travel, culinary, photography, fashion, digital art, sewing...all part of my goal to find my dream job.
Bobby Pin Earrings!
There’s no tutorial for this, but they’d be so super simple to make and fun to experiment with.
Truebluemeandyou: These are from TheGratitudeStudio’s Etsy Store here for $15 (sterling silver, sterling silver beads, freshwater pearls), available in lots of color combinations. So it’s a pretty good deal if you decide not to go the DIY route.
DIY: Rock Candy Trees
If you watched today’s Martha Stewart Show, then you saw some fun, albeit tacky, Christmas sweaters and this killer project that transforms rock candy into gorgeous end-table staples — glimmering winter trees. The craft is super simple, just decorate a Styrofoam cone with 3-inch strands of rock candy and embellish with mini-ornament evoking materials like candies, rhinestones, etc. Get the skinny on these magical trees and make your own this way.
i love the (inexpensive) idea of covering books with brown craft paper. a relatively simple task once you get into the swing of things, it makes a bookshelf or pile look uniform and gives it a focused colour scheme. this particular pile belongs to mara zepeda—look at her wonderful handwriting! i found this through one of my favourite design-related blogs escapade, formerly known as ‘a life more fabulous’. i’m 90% sure that the author is a fellow canadian, so bonus points there. check out her blog here.
