Post image for Summer Meets Fall With Pressed Flower Candles

The soft murmur of a new season is on the horizon. Suddenly, we’re all sick of wearing sandals and cut offs, and sure, we still love the beach, but does it have to be so hot every day? The collective yearning for apples and cider, cold air, and layers.Read More

Hey Ladies I have a solution to your floating flower problem! I am making several candles for Christmas gifts and ran into this problem. Somehow, my motorcycle riding, bearded, mechanic of a fiance helped come up with a solution... which I then perfected.. ;) Method 1) harder but a bit quicker I guess... apply your flowers to the side of the jar (I used my fingers I couldn't get the paintbrush method down). Then pour your wax in slowly. IMMEDIATELY rub an ice cube on the outside of the jar and it will help set the outermost layer. or... METHOD 2) place a damp paper towel into the freezer for a few minutes and wrap your jar up after applying flowers and BEFORE adding wax. I even wrapped my jar in a damp towel and put in the freezer for just a couple minutes. this causes the wax to harden almost immediately but also causes cracks (which I didn't mind since my wax was white and looked kind of cool but thats your call). I hope thos helps!!!

Hi, I was wondering, what is the amount of wax needed for a 1 pint mason jar? And is it okay if I use parafin wax instead of beeswax?

It's such a weird moment when you follow a link on pinterest and see that the model in the post is someone you went to high school with. You do a double take. The world is crazy small!

Post image for DIY Boot Chains: Dress Up Your Favorite Shoes For Fall

If they’re not already, boots should most definitely be a staple in your wardrobe. A pair of timeless black ankle boots have the ability to make even the sweetest of summer dresses suddenly feel tough, and take a simple jeans-and-tee look from “laundry day” to date night.Read More

WOW, I love this idea. I had placed a pair of clip on earrings on my flip-flops and then painted the bands with the 'sparkle' nail polish available and they looked so much better!! Pat

I've been meaning to make some leather boot chains with conchos, but I keep putting off my visit to the cowboy shop for supplies. This might give me a push in the right direction. http://www.etsy.com/shop/HypnoticaVintage

Have u tried using upholstery leather like material? I got some for free and I have a few jeans I have my eye on them for it.
Beth -Aug 29, 2014, 1:59PM
I've done some patching using embroidered motifs cut from vintage doilies and runners onto denim and cutoffs. It's also a great way to cover stains in shirts. I cut out lace motifs from a table cloth and sewed them all over a tee starting with the coffee stain I was covering up.

Post image for Desert Terrariums With Terrain

I love getting the opportunity to collaborate with Terrain. Throughout the year, they host fun workshops at their store in Glen Mills,PA. Only a short drive away from our home office, it’s always a treat when I get the chance to visit the store and work with one of the talented gals who work there. This time, I linked up with Megan, the Design By Terrain Supervisor, for a workshop on how to create the perfect desert terrarium!Read More

Nice containers fro desert plants. The glass hole in two areas allows better air flow which is critical in keeping the succulent and cactus roots from rotting. I would be careful with the sand especially since many places sell limestone sand that retains water sand tends to grow algae. Better to use white rocks as topping and mix perlite in the soil to allow better air flow. AdeniumRose company rare and unusual cactus, succulent plants.

These photos are mint! Thankyou for such a cool post with heaps of eye candy! and inspiration! I saw the angular terrarium on the shelf in there, I want to do something similar with one of these but i'm not sure if the desert look will suit.

Since I finished that book I've started 4 businesses. An online marketing system is the perfect way to get started online, because you get to build your list and get educated at the same time. A skilled SEO campaigner knows to ease out a complex site and re-structure it to suit real users as well as search engines.
