Art teacher here...I did notice that gloves were not used nor mentioned in this tutorial. VERY dangerous - indigo is a fun dye to use but you really need to take precautions when dyeing anything, whether it be indigo or any other dye. You don't want to go about with tie died hands! Nor do you want to be sick on account of it. Please do all art projects with safety in mind. As a teacher of little kids, I cannot use the indigo dye for safety reasons. We do use other dyes however, and in the case of real little kids, like kindergarten, we use food coloring. Other ideas: coffee, tea and berry stains. Lot of fun! I loved this tutorial - explicit and knowledgeable. Thank you!

Post image for DIY Mason Jar Cozy

When I was in Portland, I had coffee one morning at a place called Courier Coffee.  They serve their coffee in mason jars, and also sell adorable handmade cozies to protect your hands from the hot glass. I have plenty of mason jars here at work, so I was inspired to make my own mason jar cozy so that this winter I can use mason jars for my coffee at work! Read on to learn how to make your own.

Post image for Yarn Bombed Plants

Ever since I first saw images of yarn bombing, I have always wanted to have a go at it.  Yarn bombing is a form of street art that has spread throughout cities all over the world, and unlike permanent graffiti, it is easy to remove if necessary.  Artists have been choosing anything they desire to yarn bomb, from stand-up telephone booths to even cars. To see such vibrant colors on everyday objects is such a pleasing surprise. Read more »

Post image for DIY Jalapeño Muscle Rub?

Have you guys seen the new Netflix series “Orange Is the New Black?” It seems to be all the rage over here! …Although I only first heard of it recently, when our PR assistant was telling me about an episode where Piper (the main character) makes a muscle rub using jalapeño peppers. Read more »

Oops. Forgot to mention. Be sure to leave the top off the jar the second time or the alcohol won't evaporate.
Jld -Feb 06, 2014, 7:43PM
Hi. What you and Piper made was a crude version of this very effective salve for both Fibromyalgia and Back pain. The preferred way to make this is with dried hot peppers and alcohol and takes a little time and preparation. Begin with a package of DRIED jalapeños. Break off and discard the stems. Blend for 35-45 seconds (don't get too fine) and pour the blended peppers into a jar. Fill the jar with alcohol, rubbing or drinking, cover the jar tightly and let stand on the kitchen counter until the alcohol is infused with the hot pepper. (At least 24 hours). The alcohol will change color as it is infused. Once the mix is infused, strain the peppers out of the alcohol using cheese cloth or a fine strainer and pour the alcohol back into the jar. Put the jar in a warm sunny place where the alcohol can evaporate. Once the alcohol has evaporated you will have in the bottom of the jar the pepper oil. Now add it to the Shay or Cocoa butter. Use two parts butter to one part oil. If you have sensitive skin, cut back on the oil. The butter is stiffer than the oil so you will have to mix it with a spoon or stick. I use Popsicle sticks. BE SURE TO NOT GET THE PURE OIL ON YOUR SKIN. YOU CAN STORE ANY REMAINING OIL IN THE REFER. I suggest making a tiny amount to begin with until you get the percentage of oil to butter to your liking. Don't use it more than three days consecutively on any one place or it will irritate the skin. You can buy small containers for your preparation at stores that provide soap making ingredients or sell bulk lotions for massage therapists. Many natural foods stores carry containers as well.

Post image for DIY Oil Diffuser

One of the most important elements in creating a desirable home is having beautiful scents throughout. I usually love opening windows, displaying fresh flowers, and burning candles to achieve this – and now I have one more to add to the list: oil diffusers. I discovered that you can actually create an oil diffuser at home, and now I’m obsessed. Read more »

Id love to buy some off of you. I dont have the time to put them together.
Marianne -Jan 20, 2014, 6:12AM
I wonder if it works. I use the essential oils since a long time. You have to heat them a little tot diffuse tje smell of it. ... Normal diffusers content lots of ingredients which make the oils volatile ... so I doubt that this really works. Though I love the idea

Post image for DIY Beach Glass Photo Transfer

My Aunt and Uncle have been collecting beach glass for years. When I was recently at their house for a visit, I was fascinated by how many pieces they have acquired over time. I picked up a few and started looking at them. I thought to myself, “There has to be something cool that you can do with all of this glass.” I remembered Julia’s wood photo transfer post, and that gave me the idea to try a photo transfer on a different type of medium-beach glass! I snagged a couple of white pieces from my Aunt and Uncle (with their permission) and tried out the photo transfer technique. Read more »
