silkworms

Craftzine found a really interesting article about how silk is made over on True Up. It’s definitely worth checking out!

That is so cool! What a great idea for a school project! I wish I had gone to your elementary school :)

I had a pet silkworm as a 3rd grade project ha ha how random. But it was so cool and it was the first (and last) time I was brave enough to hold an insect. We kept them til they transformed to moths then I really don't remember what happened to them after that :)

You may remember a while back when we talked about all the cool sequined and embellished tights that hit the runway during fashion week… Well, Park & Cube has a really handy tutorial showing how she embellished the fabulous tights shown above! It has awesome pictures and some handy tips for those of us who feel the urge to DIY some cool tights for ourselves! Check it out here.

These spools of ribbon from Felt at Home are so awesome! It’s such a beautiful way to send someone a message! You can get ribbons with poetry printed on them, or get your own things printed on them, like invitations or birth announcements! Imagine the love notes one could get! The wooden spools are vintage, and so are the buttons. No wonder they look so pretty! You can get yours at Felt at Home’s shop.

I am so inspired by this project Color Me Katie created! She and her boyfriend traced themselves in various positions on black paper, cut them out and taped them up around Brooklyn! Then they waited and photographed people passing by when they matched with the shadows. What fun! Check out her blog here!

ribbon inspiration

I love this idea from Apartment Therapy – ribbons as curtains! It looks gorgeous, and you could think up infinite color combinations! I don’t know why this never occurred to me!

This book was required for my foundation art class during my Freshman year at Alfred University School of Art and Design in New York. Fantastic book, really forces you to open your eyes and look at things differently.

crochet portraits

wool_prog001.jpg
This is some seriously impressive crochet work! I can’t imagine how long it would take to create one of these. They’re the work of artist Jo Hamilton, and if you live in or around Portland, you can go check them out in person! They are currently on display at Stumptown Downtown. If anyone goes, please tell me about them!

refrigerator repair -Apr 28, 2013, 9:42PM
Any specific options for freezer repair? The freezer part of my freezer isn't working correctly and even I can also notice a fan sputtering from the backside of the refrig. I'm aiming to be ready to phone a refrigerator repair company in the town and also get it repaired tomorrow. Any offer a suggestion on who to ask for refrig repair?

I know we’ve already looked at some animal sculptures today, but these are just so dear! Kyoko Okubo crafts these little figures from washi, a traditional Japanese paper. I can’t believe they are made out of paper! You’ve gotta love the twig antlers too! See many more of Kyoko’s cute creations here.

How big are these pieces? I was wondering perhaps you can create a nature & wildlife decor theme for the home. There are brilliant photographic prints of wildlife in action you can display to create an interior design like that.

oh man, that little dormouse (i think) guy kills me! so cute! and they are all beautiful.

studded knees!

There are lots of studding DIY ideas out there, but I’m am loving this! You could stud up some denim scraps and patch them onto a pair of old jeans that need some new life.

Aren’t these creations by Blaze Danielle amazing!? I just love them, they look so carefully and delicately done. I would love to have one of these pieces on a tee-shirt, even though I would have to be extra-careful with it! See more at Blaze Danielle’s blog and Etsy.
