doily art

I love these heart, brain and lung doily drawings by Lisa Solomon. I had never seen her work before, and though I was initially attracted to her site for the organs, her other doily drawings are really cool too!

Thomas Doyle, the creator of these incredible dioramas, says in his artist statement that he feels work done in such small scale allows for the intimacy one might feel peering into a museum display case or dollhouse. I completely agree – and I think that is one thing that is so appealing about these pieces! It is quite like looking into a dollhouse for me, except rather than wanting to jump in and join the scene, I am worried for the little people in these dioramas – they seem like they are in peril! Still, amazing work, and you can check out Thomas’ site to see more.

The girl who runs This is Love Forever just put a how-to on CraftStylish that shows how to make the springy centerpieces shown above! They are so adorable and chipper- I will definitely be trying my hand at this project! See it here!

Another clever use of obsolete music apparatus – record purses, by Chilean design student Natalia Pezoa! They look pretty cool! They would go very well with one of those cassette tape wallets, right?

chickie bookmarks!

I downloaded these awesome chick bookmarks from JinJurup, and I love them so much! I glued the printer paper to card-stock before I cut mine out, just to make them more sturdy. They are so cute! Get yours here, for free of course!

Okay, so there is no way I could have come up with a post for these two shots, but I just couldn’t resist sharing them with you, so we have this random post!
First of all, this tax-form dress is awesome! Read more about the creator here.

That, and I’m in love with this little guy…

Isn’t he sweet? Our graphic designer Kevin found this little cross-eyed Brussels Griffon on Flickr, with Keeping one eye on you as the caption. What a doll!!

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!

delicious

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!
