These gorgeous Easter eggs were decorated by Pam of Gingerbread Snowflakes. She hollowed the eggs first (tutorial for that here) and then used Mod-Podge to glue some flowers she had already dried onto the eggs. They sure do look beautiful!

Yum! This Butterless Almond Cake that Angry Chicken made the other day looks like the perfect breakfast. The recipe she used looks really easy too – almond paste, sugar, flour, eggs, and a pinch of salt – simple, and yummy! I can’t wait to try it!

make a compost bin!

I simply couldn’t resist mentioning the article on how to make a compost bin that was recently posted on Craftzine. Though composting is something you can get into any time, I feel like spring cleaning is a great time to start something like this! It’s really easy too, and it seriously cuts down the amount of waste coming from your home, besides making all your trees and flowers happy! Plus who doesn’t want to feed cute little worms?!

repair manifesto

I love this repair manifesto! I need to print it off and post it by my sewing machine…
Found on SwissMiss.

These special cracked colored eggs really caught my eye! I love them, they’re so pretty! Barefoot Kitchen Witch has an easy how-to based on Chinese Tea Eggs, which are a relatively common street snack in China. Perfect for Easter!

candy sushi – yum!

I can almost taste these little candy sushis right now! Yum! Mommyknows originally created these for her daughter’s birthday party as both a craft activity and the party favors – but I think they would be a fun activity (not to mention fun to eat) any time! Plus they look really cute! Check out her candy sushi how-to to make your own tasty set!

Pictured above is the newest display in our lobby – which also happens to be the newest display in our stores! This display will be in all the Free People stores by next week, and we love it! Our Visual Display Team has been working hard for weeks to make all the pictures and accessories to go in each store, and we got Beth to show us some tips and tricks for making our own little displays! Check out the video below!

Thank you Beth!

I adore these collages by Linda Solovic – the colors, the printed papers, the shapes – they are so cute! You can see more collages here, and of course check out Linda’s website as well!

egg carton lights

Do you like these pretty lights? They’re made from egg cartons! Apartment Therapy has some tips for making your own set. They would be perfect for an evening on the porch in the summertime, don’t you think?

What a creative way to repurpose what would otherwise be trash! And they can be recycled when they start to break down!

apple cozy

While I personally am not ready to drop 20$ for one of these little apple cozies, I do think they are a really cute and cool idea! No more bruises, I suppose. I love the leaf embellishment also!

I love this idea, but agree that they're expensive for apples. Could these possibly also be used to protect billiard balls?
grace -Apr 03, 2009, 5:30AM
there are free knit patterns for apple, pear and banana cozies at http://veganlunchbox.blogspot.com/2008/08/apple-cozy-pattern.html there's also a link to crochet patterns in the comments it reminds me that i've been meaning to make some for my friend for ages!

I love this DIY jacket idea from BleachBlack! I like the grunge feel, and there are so many possibilities for making it to have your own unique flavor! Awesome!
Also, have you guys seen these house shoes from elephant and chickpea that they featured on Bloesem?

Ah! Love! I just wonder how sturdy the soles actually are, because I’d like to wear a pair out and about! They’re too cute to just wear at home!

Caroline -Apr 01, 2009, 6:00PM
Love the pointe shoe toe on the slippers!

I recently saw these cuddly crochet pals by GourmetAmigurumi and I can’t get over the little details! I love their expressions and clothing and even their little eyes! Definitely check out GourmetAmigurumi’s blog, as she posts lots of her work in progress which is cool to see, as well as patterns and tips!

Great comment, love the design of the site too.

These things are cool, but I'm not too sure I'd be eager to cuddle up with one of them!
