Ice Laterns

I just read about ice laterns and can’t wait to try and make one.

I’m going to try the balloon method….don’t want to spend the money on a mold…

Wrapping Gifts….cont.

December 23, 2008

Alright so here are some more of the wrapping ideas that I’ve accumulated… sorry I can’t link to where I found them

simple silver tissue paper  spruced up with ribbon (I don’t particularly like the ones they’ve used but you get the idea)

I also found some great tags on Etsy

I’ve posted before about side tables & desks that double as a book mark but this one has the added bonus of having a light. Not to mention that the light contains a sensor that turns off the light when an open book is placed on the shelf. When the book is picked up again,
the light automatically turns on. Lili Lite also has a switch to turn the light on and off manually.

Wrapping Gifts

December 2, 2008

I have this fascination with ways to wrap gifts. I tend not to do half of them because I’ve come to the conclusion that no one in my life would appreciate the time and effort I would ultimately put into it. So I thought I’d share my stockpile of ideas for those of you that are lucky enough to have people that would appreciate it.

I’ll start with my most recent finds since I can offer you a link for them. They are from Design*Sponge.

Here’s another pom pom idea from the same site that recycles a Target bag

I believe these are from Making It Lovely, from some time ago.

some fun with ribbon

these are actually wrapped up rolled quarters (or whatever coins you wanted to use), striped paper or plain paper with a ribbon stripe and finished with a clear cellophane.

Here’s something much simplier but still looks well thought out.

I believe I have a bunch more but I think I’ll put them in another post.

Silver Ornament Garland

December 1, 2008

 

 

I was just at Pottery Barn over the holiday weekend and noticed the decorated tree in their window. It had this gorgeous silver ornament garland on it that I am absolutely obsessed with now. Unfortunetley the picture on their website doesn’t do it justice, which is probably just was well because it is ridiculously priced (and it only looked to be about 4 feet long).
