List Of Hollywood Actress Starting With Letter B

Make a paper bamboo plant

Friday night while my hubby was away on business, I was home alone feeling introverted. So I watched Will and Grace reruns and cut out paper pieces to make this lucky bamboo plant. It's from Epson's Hong Kong site, which I found via Paper Forest. I like how it turned out. I think it's cute and funny, the same way I think our fake fireplace video is funny. I'm a nerd. Oh, and if you decide to download the PDF, don't be daunted when you discover that the instructions are in Chinese. You won't need them.

Giant Panda / black wallpaper


The Giant Panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca, literally meaning "cat-foot black-and-white") is a bear native to central-western and south western China. It is easily recognized by its large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, over the ears, and across its round body. Though it belongs to the order Carnivora, the Giant Panda's diet is 99% bamboo.

Good for a laugh

This website makes me laugh out loud. Mary and Kimberly post kooky vintage clothing patterns at and write snide captions for them. Enjoy a tour through the decades of fashion (the 70s is especially nice, I think) and start snickering.

Website in the works

I'm in the early stages of putting together an online portfolio that will show my professional work and tell a bit more about what I do. Although it's great fun to decorate my living room and play with glue and scissors, I spend most of my time working as a graphic designer. Stay tuned... I'll let you know when it launches!

How to make decorative thumbtacks

A few people have emailed asking how to make the little fabric-covered tacks I posted previously. See step-by-step photos below, going from left to right.

Start with a pack of "Wedding Gown Size" (size 20, 1/2") metal buttons to cover (available at fabric stores for about $1.50). Pull the loops off all the button backing pieces with a pliers or wire cutter. Cut your fabric scraps into circles slightly larger than a quarter, or use the circle template printed on the back of your button package. (Since the edges get tucked in under the metal backing, you don't have to be a careful cutter.)

Following the package directions, use the "pusher" tool that came in the pack to cover your buttons with fabric. This step is easy and the most fun! Then use a generous amount of hot glue to attach a tack to the back of your button. A standard tack should fit perfectly. Your cork board will thank you.

UPDATE: You can buy buttons to cover that have flat backs so you don't have to yank off the wire loops! I didn't know this when I made mine. Shoot. Could have saved myself some work.

Old magazines put to good use

I love all the patterns and textures you find in magazines like Domino or catalogs like West Elm. So I cut out tiny scraps from photos of pillows and tablecloths and people's shirts and made them into magnets. Some sets I sold, and some became small gifts. Materials: glass marble thingies from Walmart or anywhere; scissors or round punch; gel craft glue to stick your paper to your marble; round magnets; glue gun to stick your magnet to your marble.

You can also glue a tack to the back and use them on your bulletin board. Recognize that wallpaper from the Brocade Home catalog?
