I keep a weekly calendar of who needs to be where and of course it is posted on the refrigerator. Today I came across this idea from Show and Tell U to decoupage a paint stick and add magnets. I really like the idea.
I came across these fantastic bowls made out of recycled egg cartons and that is what started my train of thought for today’s post. You can find the instructions for the bowls at Sew Beastly.
Turn junk mail into flower art, just follow the instructions at Grow Creative.I don’t know about you, but I have bought t-shirts just for the artwork. Then didn’t know what to do with them because I don’t wear t-shirts. Love this idea from Trashy Crafter. You can staple, pin, or glue a t-shirt around an art canvas.Here is another way to use junk mail by Crafty Foxes.
I came across this idea for hand painted curtains and thought they were absolutely beautiful, so of course I had to share. I found the tutorial at Cuckoo for Design.
Are you getting ready for a long car ride with the family? My mom always had a tote bag filled with goodies for a long trip. I am not sure how she got everything in that tote bag, but there were snacks, toys, washcloth kept wet in a plastic bag (this was before wipes), tissues and more. For my guys I had a lot of the same things. I get car sick if I read in the car, books on tape are wonderful way to pass the time. We would make up games and play some of the old standards like “I spy”. I have collected a few ideas to help make it an easier ride. didterest

So in looking for a little more information on technique I came across a wonderful tutorial for a pen and ink cityscape on The Postmans Knock.
