DIY snow globes

I’m really digging this idea from fra(a)iing! She used water, glitter, some small cute jars, some plastic animals and waterproof glue to make these snow globes! You could really go wild with this idea, and put sequins, little jewelry or all kinds of things in a snow globe! I love it!

the guitar store

This is the most awesome store front ever! This is The Guitar Store in Southampton England, with its security grate pulled down. I think it is so creative and clever to use the grate as the front of a speaker! Plus, the knobs on the speaker go up to 11, rather than 10! You can see that in the bigger size image, which is here. So cool!


I love this video for Lisa Hannigan‘s new song, Lille! I think you guys will too, if not for the song then for the awesome pop up books! Enjoy!

If you are groping around in the dark looking to turn on the security system, simply use your voice to switch it on. If you have monitoring home security systems, the alarm company will get in touch with you and those on your address book as well as provide a presence at your home within a very good time frame. With continued technological advancements, there is no reason not to look into additional security.

That is one EPIC pop-up book! ~F

Wow. When I first saw the top picture, I thought it was real for a moment before realizing it was one of those sidewalk optical illusions. Knowing that, the last picture still kind of freaks me out! Edgar Mueller is apparently who is responsible for this coolness, but the site is in French so I can only gather so much…

Oh my god, that just totally freaked me out.

freakin' cool! i love graffiti. i have always said that if i get settled enough in my life to have a yard and a fence - i would find the raddest graffiti artist to paint up my fence. I don't know about this style on a fence - but it a rad new take on an 'old' art!

Aren’t these little knit sushi so cute and delicious-looking? I love them! You can get the pattern to knit some yourself from NeedleNoodles. Clever!

rug inspiration

I came across this awesome crochet rug by Little Circus on >O<, and I feel really taken with it! I love the total mishmash of all kinds of colors and shapes! It’s great knit and crochet inspiration!

Jenna works with colors amidst a huge mass of swatches and cloth.

Wow, that wall of trims looks far too tidy! You all, always look like you're having a great time. What I want to know is, who has to clean all those swatches back up again.

Photos are slowly trickling in from the Valentine’s 2009 craft swap, and there are some truly creative and amazing crafts. I really love the stuffed bird from recylced fabrics! Check them all out in our flickr group, and leave some comment love for the crafters:)

Awww, you posted MY bird creation! And you even complimented it! I feel all warm and fuzzy. I'm going to be giving (yes, GIVING!!!) away one of my birdie mobiles on my blog so be sure to check it out at www.reloveprojects.blogspot.com. Thank you!

These interesting chairs and table are by VivaTerra, and are made entirely from rulers and yardsticks. I like how they are made in a sort of vintage looking style too. Cool!

awesome phone charger!

I love this phone charger! Wires can get so tiresome and ugly – I love that MicroWorks turned the wire into a vine! However, they are not selling these chargers, but who cares? I’m going to make it a point to hit up my nearest craft store in the next few days, buy some fake flowers and leaves, and turn my phone charger into a beautiful flower vine! Easy! And pretty!

Kia -Feb 16, 2009, 9:03PM
I love this idea! I want to try it because it seems pretty easy
dez -Feb 16, 2009, 11:00AM
I am totally going to do this to all of my wires that show! I have really pretty led star lights lined around my dresser and it looks so pretty minus the cord that shows but this is brilliant! thanks for sharing!
