Make a Beaded Tree Night Light

Dollar Store Crafts

While the inventory at Dollar Tree is constantly changing, there are some things that you can almost always find there.  One item that is a constant on their shelves is night lights, but plain, boring night lights.  Luckily, they are easy to dress up!   At Squirrel, the blog of Etsy shop Exhalia Studios, crafter Bobbie Julie shares how she used wire and beads to make a twisty tree to decorate o...

Chinese drawers

IKEA Hackers

Materials: Forhoja

Description: I don't know how long I kept this piece instead of throwing it away. As I redesigned my hallway to a kind of 'New Asian Style', I had the idea to integrate this little wall-mounted chest.

I painted it to the same colour shade, that I chose for the wall. Wall paint for the wall, acrylic paint for the chest, off course.

Than I turned the drawers 180 degrees...


Heute will ich euch ein besonderes Nähprojekt aus den Semesterferien vorstellen. Ich habe das Problem, immer sehr viel in die Uni mitnehmen zu müssen, zum konstruieren und nähen. Leider habe ich früher immer die Hälfte davon vergessen, also beschloss ich: Ich brauche eine Werkzeugkiste!!!! Aber nicht irgendeine, sondern eine die meinem Beruf gerecht wird.
Man braucht: Nesselstoff, einen...

I'm making little c a ghostie scarf for Halloween pretend play, so I'll use this piece of foil printed tulle as an example.

I wanted to share the few pictures I took at the living fair last week. After the workshop I didn't take much time to look around & I really should have as the 'Meesterlijk'-hall seemed a great place to get creative impulses and inspiration. Bummer! Will have to go back next year I suppose. But the few stands I did visit are really worth mentioning so check out their sites if you are attracted ...



Während Heike und Verena heute ohne mich über den Ludwigsburger Stoffmarkt gehen, sitze ich mit Salbeitee auf dem Sofa. Husten, Schnupfen, Halsweh- zum vollen Erkältungsprogramm kommen jetzt auch noch Zahnschmerzen dazu.

Aber ich will euch hier nicht volljammern. Ich zeige euch deshalb endlich mal den Ausblick, den ich seit ein paar Wochen von meiner Sofaecke aus habe.
