another great cord idea

You might remember the awesome electrical cords made to look like vines that I posted a while back – well these sweet beaded cords are another great option! The ones shown above are made by Nathalie Costes, and they’ve got me wondering how difficult it would be to make my own! And I’ve got to add, I love those big chunky beads! So awesome…

Ah! How badly do you want one of these relief prints by Bryan Nash Gill? Amazing – I agree with Swissmiss when she says she would like to have one decorating her home…

I like your blog^^ The relief prints are really stunning, at first glance I thought it was a fingerprint in a strange form :)) Lilly :)

This video from wlevin on YouTube is hilarious! Passover’s over, and wouldn’t it be neat, if you could use all the matzah that you didn’t eat! I especially loved the matzah dog house! Enjoy…

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?!

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

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!
