i love how she took this ikea shelf (i haven't seen this one ever- it looks like good quality actually) and made it her own.
brilliant use of a bookcase!
I love how this color actually looks good on her. you go girl, rock that color! ;D
Haven't seen this idea before. Love it! Think the kids would like this one too. Maybe use for Mother's Day craft?
Nursery - What cute flag bunting! I love how it looks like a canopy and the cloud mobile is just the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen!
HOME SWEET HOME
My newest painting from Katelin!!! She took the inspiration from a catalogue and put her own twist on it. I love the church!
I love how she let her bridesmaids pick their own black dresses to be unique! Also, cool bouquets!
One of the best sites I have seen for helping set up Writer's Workshop. She has amazing ideas for genre units (and celebrations)! Looks like she uses Caulkins...
Book Page wreath - I made this one. I absolutely LOVE how it looks in my home!
How To: Make the Best Buttercream Icing--- I made this and my mom kept asking if I used real butter, if it was really buttercream frosting etc, cause she couldn't taste the butter, VERY good frosting, one I'll use as my go-to, very simple too..makes ALOT
"The famous IKEA sofa. Look how good it looks here – at first glance, I didn’t even realize it was from IKEA, I thought they had slipcovered her existing sofa. But as Emily knows, slipcovering an existing sofa is twice the price of a new 389 IKEA sofa. Great choice. She added two new French inspired chairs from Palacek, along with off white curtains from Restoration Hardware. The French bench also came from Restoration Hardware which was recovered in a chartreuse velvet from Pindler and Pindler."

Evolution of the bikini. Probably one of the most interesting videos I've ever seen. Definitely makes me rethink how I want to present myself. How will you use your beauty? A little crazy but interesting.
This woman's tutorial/walk-through on how she made her costume wings is *amazing*. Awesome creativity, and some pretty wicked engineering! I don't know when I'd ever need this, but it's cool.
I have a white Chinese Shar Pei, and one of the things I love most about her is how she makes EVERYONE smile when they see her cute
Things I LOVE
"I've been looking into this Sharpie mug 350 degrees craft and it looks as though many people have been experiencing fading or the colors coming off altogether. Therefore, I would like to share this blogger's page. She explains to the tee how she cooked her mug at 425 for 30 minutes and then left the mug to cool in the oven. The results: a permanent cup at last! -- good because I did this once at 350 and the sharpie washed off!"
I think that, at one point, Johanna was just like Katniss. But the Capitol took away everything from her, they no longer controlled her. That's why she is so cold. Any sliver of kindness in her heart was completely destroyed by the Capitol. That's why she is one of the saddest people in the whole series. But also one of the best.
How to use the sock bun method...this actually looks better than most I've seen that require you to roll your sock down the pony tail=mess for layered hair. This one you simply wrap around and pin!
Homemade fabric softner 6 cups H2O (warm) 3 cups white vinegar 2 cups hair conditioner, Best PIN ever as I use this every time I do laundry. I love this since I can use any conditioner I like to make my own fragrance.

Body After Baby, Core work out, Diastasis, post pregnancy work out, getting rid of baby belly *** I was skeptical of the workout she suggested, so I tried it out. I was amazed! My inner abdomen is actually sore! From just one little workout that took less than 15 min! I finally found a good, sound, post-preg stomach shaping workout! -Yvonne
Stop hating on this precious girl. I am confident that her and harry will be good together. seeming that it is that most 1D fans arent swifties, you cant know what a sweet person she is, and how hopelessly romantic she is just like Harry. The will be perfect for each other because I know harry will be good to her and she will be good to him.
Deodorant with 3 simple ingredients. I made this and will NEVER use store bought deodorant again - ever. Works better than anything I have tried. And you don't smell like a coconut all day - not that I would mind. Thinking of adding cloves for a man's deodorant. Not that a dude couldn't use this one.
Aside from the idiots that think it's fun to throw a cat into water, this has got to be one of the funniest clips I've ever seen. I have never seen cats who love water as much is some of these do in this video. Funny cats that like water, EPIC
I will always miss a good friend I used to have... I know that shes not in my life any more for a reason... I know I will never have another friendship like the one we had. I will always, always, always, love her. :( losing your best friend is like death.
I love how Molly is busy with her stuff, but then John and Sherlock just come out of nowhere and Sherlock's like 'Molly you're coming with us' and when she says she already has plans he just whips out those crisps, like 'it's all good. We got crisps.'<< UM can we appreciate that Sherlock HAD bags of crisps? He doesn't eat, I doubt he regularly carries chips for Jawn. He KNOWS when Molly goes for lunch, anticipated it. Doesn't care for the solar system, knows when Molly eats. Adorable.
Every girl dreams of her wedding day and she envisions herself in an amazing gown like no other. We think this one would be perfect for any wedding. It's made in a traditional style with a strapless bodice with a wrapped texture and gorgeous beaded appliques and embroidery throughout. The back of the gown has a corset-style closure that not only looks pretty, it also ensures a great fit. The A-line skirt features the same lovely embroidered appliques and beading on the top layer, which creates a stunning effect when seen with the underlayer. They both extend in the back to create a gorgeous train. A lovely choice for any bride to be.Product Details:-Made from taffeta-Strapless bodice-Embroidered/beaded details-A-line skirt-Tulle-like overlay-Mini-train-Corset-style closure-Train Length: 60cm
My neighbor's house always had the clearest windows EVER! One day I helped her with some spring-cleaning. She didn't use a single paper towel or commercial cleaner but mixed 2 cups hot water with ¼ cup vinegar & 1 TBS of cornstarch, shook in spray bottle & spritzed the windows, then wiped down w/ crumpled newspaper. Unlike paper or cloth towels, newspaper is absorbent without leaving lint behind. This homemade window wash solution w/ newspaper works like NOTHING else for PERFECTLY CLEAR windows!
“Mom, listen, I haven’t been together with Topanga for 22 years, but we have been together for 16. That’s a lot longer than most couples have been together. I mean, when we were born, you told me that we used to take walks in our strollers together around the block. When we were two, we were best friends. I mean, I knew everything about this girl. I knew her favorite color, her favorite food. Then we became six, Eric made fun of me because it wasn’t cool to have a best friend that was a girl or even know a girl. So for the next seven years I threw dirt at her. I like to call those “the lost years”. Then when I was thirteen, mom, she put me up against my locker and she kissed me. I mean, she gave me my first kiss. She taught me how to dance. She always was talking about these crazy things and I never understood a word she said. All I understood was that she was the girl I sat up every night thinking about, and when I’m with her, I feel happy to be alive. Like I can do anything. Even talk to you like this. So that’s, that’s what I think is love, mom. When I’m better because she’s here.” - Cory Matthews, Boy Meets World <3

July 16 - Calle is failing more each day. Today was not a good day for our sweet baby. I can think of nothing else and I am so afraid. I can't tell you how much I love Calle and her family; my heart aches so. much. I ask as I always do please pray for this baby because she deserves to live. Please pray for Rachael, Kevin and Connor because they deserve to have her in their lives. Please, repost this and ask everyone you know to pray for her miracle. I love you all. blessings....Nana Kate
Bodacious bark. Im not sure Ive ever seen bark quite like this. Its uniquely patterned texture and color adds an abundance of character and age to this wonderful old live oak. Furthermore (and at the risk of excess word proliferation), have you noticed the pot? How much character it has (and how small it is for the tree)? No mention of who made it with the photo, but whoever did deserves some love. The tree and the pot are from the My Trees section of Mauro Stemberge
Painting in a bag (my little one was about 9 months old here). This was a craft that we made for my mom. I put white paint on blue paper and stuck it all into a gallon sized storage bag. She just squished the paint around. I also like to put white paper in with blobs of different colored paints. . . she can see how they mix together to make other colors. Photo and original idea: Kristen Shawley
