So, I was skimming over an old journal I used to write poetry in during high school and started feeling nostalgic. This made me want to start keeping a poetry journal again so I bought a new, plain notebook. Then I got the Idea to personalize it and wanted to share what I did. Whether you journal poetry, your day, or your activities or maybe you want to make a class notebook pretty or maybe decorate a sketchbook. Whatever your purposes are, you may find this a fun activity to do.
We've all wanted an owl to come swooping in with a Hogwarts acceptance letter right? Attend fun classes like Defense Against the Dark Arts, Transfiguration, and maybe... potions?
The holiday season was approaching and I wasn't sure what I was going to get for the adults in my family, but then I decided to do make snow globes. They're fun, not that hard to make, and they add a personal touch to my holiday presents. There are two different types of snow globes that I could have made. One is a normal snow globe with water, but the other would be a waterless snow globe. These are the steps to make a homemade snow globe.
When starting a crochet project, most people only think of the three basic items: Yarn, hook, and scissors. However, for more complicated patterns and projects, it helps if one keeps a variety of tools. Therefore, here's how to start a crochet tool box of your own.
The season of Christmas is a time of year in which many of us love to decorate our homes, apartments, and offices with festive trinkets and fun knick-knacks. But it is also a time in which we enjoy getting together with friends and family and activities that allow us to do just that. Here are some tips on how you, or anyone you know, regardless of your creative skill level, can easily make some holiday décor items you can show off or gift.
When it comes to getting our lives together, many of us reach for agendas and pre-made planners that we can buy at the store in order to keep track of appointments and events happening in our lives. This method can be effective if you just need to keep note of a date and time of an event, but what if you want something more personalized and more unique? What if you want your agenda to keep track of more than just appointments and events? What if you wanted to keep track of your habits, your mood, and even your sleep?
Christmas has become severely commercialized and most of us can agree that it can be wallet draining. We want to shower the people we love with beautiful jewelry and new cars, but it can backfire on us. Our economy is more stable than in the past, but still a lot of people live paycheck to paycheck. There are a lot of reasons for this, but with Christmas especially, many people cannot afford such extravagant gifts. Some people even tend to go further into debt around the holidays while others rely on a holiday bonus that any company can revoke if they so please.
So Christmas has rolled around and we were not ready! But there are a few ways to budget and save this year.
Most of us have done it (myself included)—walked into a store, saw a super cute notebook, and splurged. Then, after the journey home, dumped it on the pile of empty notebooks accumulating on the desk, or shoved it onto a forgotten bookshelf.
With the holidays just around the corner, things may be a little tight in Santa's wallet this year. We have all been there so I hope to pass a little knowledge to you so maybe you don't feel like such a Grinch this year.
I've been doing calligraphy for the past three years, and I can speak honestly when I say it's changed my life for the better. Through this craft, I have grown as an artist, strengthened my penmanship, and have gotten the chance to make people happier by creating for them personalized signs, gifts, and invitations. What started out as a small hobby for me has grown into a business where I can be myself and fully relax. Beginning calligraphy is not as tricky as you would think. It's actually very simple and rewarding, and I'm here to tell you what to keep in mind when getting started.
