Valentine’s Day is approaching, and with that in mind hearts are on the forefront. I love origami “paper folding” and have always been fascinated with the Japanese art.  There’s something about seeing a flat piece of paper come to life into a 3-D art form that I find so beautiful, and this is merely done by paper folding!

Post image for Eco Dyeing With Flowers: Part 1

I have always loved experimenting with natural dyes.  The colors found in nature, in flowers, plants, and vegetables are so much more vibrant and beautiful than artificial colors, and it’s extremely rewarding when you are able to capture that color on a piece of fabric and wear it.  Read more »

Post image for Snail Mail Love: Send Gorgeous DIY Postcards

I miss snail mail, I miss receiving hand written letters in the mail and small postcards from family and friends from their travels. It was always such a nice feeling having something handwritten and delivered to you, that you could keep and put on your fridge under a magnet or placed delicately on a shelf for you to glance at and pick up every now and again to read over.

Use the keywords that you are targeting in the title of your videos as well as in the description of your videos. You can create interesting tips or short how to's and invite people to learn further by visiting your site. You - Tube is so big, that the customers will actually come searching for you.

Hello to all. I remembe when my grandmother was drying herbs and flowers in our home. She made bouquets of flowers in a vase then. I remember they looked lovely for whole winter until next summer when we pick up new and fresh flowers. Herbs were on the wall for whole winter as they smels nice. Grandmother crumbled in small quantities and has placed in the closet whenever we had guests.

I love this. My kids bring me flowers all the time and I hesitate to throw them out. This would be a cute way to extend their life, for sure! I share this post on my blog! http://www.doodlela.com/2013/04/keeping-it-simple.html
