Sheesh. These things have enough dye in them to kill a small fox. But I made them anyway. Rainbow cupcakes, for the psychedelic leprechaun freak in all of us. They were pretty good, I used this recipe and this tutorial on the rainbow part.
Make some stamps today. You totally should. These little babies are easy to make and you can do magical things like personalize stationary and cards, etc. Make a stamp out of an image you can’t find anywhere else, the little doodles you make when your bored, or something else fantastic.
-fun foam (fun!)
-cork sheets (or other backing)
Trace you image onto the foam and cut out with the scissors or exacto knife. Next, if you have little details in your stamp, run over them with the knife for definition. Glue the stamps to the cork backing, and your good to go.
I’ve really wanted to try the whole freezer paper stencil thing out. The possibilities are endless. Seriously, just print an image, trace, paint and voila! Instant kick ass shirt with super cool image.
So I decided to do some crafting on the fly this morning. Something manly. Specifically, for a man that is not my dog. It was real easy. So easy I’m not going to show a tutorial, especially since there’s about a thousand of them. For instance, here, here, and here.
Yup, it’s Pee Wee Herman. Roll with it people.
– tying back the curtains and letting the afternoon sun in
– sitting back and reading a really absorbing book
– having someone else cook dinner
– puttering around the house when everything major is clean
and there is a sense of satisfaction
– having fresh sheets, a new book, and a cuddly dog
Remembering to do the small thing so you can feel good is
always a mood lifter.
